Dubliminal is proud to present DUBLIM011, the Research And Development release from label
boss Cessman. Dubliminal is a homegrown, rootical label, bringing the future to the funk, and
representing a multi-cultural melting pot of futuristic roots music. Alongside the Cessman, the label
is also home to Valor, The Trixsters, RDG and more.
Cessman acts as the creator, culture,
energy and lifeblood of the whole
Dubliminal operation. Growing up
and outward from jazz and dub, he
has evolved through MCing on the
underground garage scene, moving
through to where he is now. With the
release of Research & Development, he
takes things firmly to the next level.
The rolling, rattling, King Of My Mind is
the minimal, spacey lead off track. Moving
through the levels, the track describes a
journey from the innermost parts of the
psyche out into the world. But this is
only one mood of the one like Cessman,
and on Babylon Must Fall, he exploits
both his jazz and garage background,
showing and proving that he can cut it
in both styles. Taking on a more frenetic
but still considered pace, the past meets
the future on Babylon Must Fall.
Bass is forward on the funky, moving Fundamentals, which brings elements of house into the mix.
This one is more upfront, and forward thinking clubbers will lap this one up. Sparking electronics
surround a bass-and-drum combo which is exciting, complex and strangely emotional. Closer Inner
City Vibes once again employs a strong jazz saxophone line, swooping and dropping into some
deep house/garage flow. The pace modulates from grinding to frenetic, with a range of feelings on
Cessman has produced a work which is multi-layered, showing off different parts of his personality
and Dubliminal’s vision. The four tracks all offer something different, and will appeal to a wide
range of listeners. Research And Development may just be the best EP you hear all year.
