Western Lore closes out the year with a special edition record, featuring a collection of unreleased tracks that have seen constant rotation in Dead Man s Chest s DJ sets over the last eighteen months. Sampling an early 90s snippet of Fabio & Bukem (discussing the roots and inspiration of Jungle music), Lo-Freq Soul sets the tone with shuffling half time grooves and morphing acidic bass tones before dropping into an eclectic collage of soul, reggae, and stepping breaks. The Soundboy Version hones in on the outro rhythm of the original, offering a more subtle, rolling and progressive take on the low end groove. Western Lore s resident DJ Josimar makes a co-production appearance on the Ruffneck version of Haunted Dub; A machine gun assault of b-boy breakbeats, dancehall chants, saturated dub hits and rasping darkside tones. The Rubadub version sees Dead Man s Chest on a drunken dubwise flex, re-working the samples over a smoked out 70s bass riff, staggered percussion and skeletal 4/4 reggae kicks.
