For this first installment, we call upon Uzul, a notorious French dub artist, who gratifies us with two tracks halfway between the Lyon school embedded by Kaly Live Dub and High Tone in France, and the early UK dubstep.
Colors unfolds a rocker rhythmic backed by heavy skanks, the perfect accompaniment for a wobble bass served on a plateau and sprinkled with perfectly mastered reverb & FX. A track that is both rich and airy, as comfortable on a dance floor as in your living room. With Fiiyawork we move up a gear, and Uzul hires the talents of MC Ben Sharpa for an effective and unadorned collaboration. The jerky flow of the South African leads to a darker and loud production designed for crossovers hungry dubsteppers.
I.O.T records presents a new serie of EPs entitled 'The 333 series' ! Unconventional and far from any cleavage, the series reintroduces the concept of EP within the label. One output every 45 days for a total of 8 releases per year, based on a two tracks digital format and featuring an ultra limited vinyl edition (125 numbered copies in silkscreened cover and an artwork signed by Hep & Heng of Drops). A craft approach that puts forward as much the quality of the object as a tribute to a fundamental and imperishable medium.
