about

“Preparing 4 War” is an instrumental set that continues the theme of Dr Das’s first album “Emergency Basslines” (2006). Its name derives from the fact that the music was first composed in the months leading up to the second US invasion of Iraq and this impacted on the sound of the album. Once again, his enormous bass melodies are set against a shifting, tense environment of noise and percussion. However, the production is heavier and the compositions more direct, indicating his development as a producer and remixer.

As before, Dr Das has deliberately chosen to not use words, but to focus peoples’ attention on sound and encourage people to visualise for themselves. Every bassline, rhythm and ‘noiz’ is a metaphor for human action and emotion. There is anger, optimism and militancy. These are politically motivated frequencies.

Highly recommended for headphone listening. Do not on any account, listen on computer speakers-you'll be missing half the story!
