The blueprint for a futuristic new dancehall style is laid out on this debut
full-length release from Miss Red, produced by close collaborator Kevin
Martin aka The Bug. A fully realised and precision-tooled long player that
sits in an outernational beat continuum alongside the likes of Jamaica’s
Equiknoxx, Canada’s Seekersinternational and Portugal’s Principe crew.
Miss Red’s fierce flow rides roughshod over warped bashment anthems like
‘Shock Out’ and ‘One Shot Killer’ but the album also showcases her ability to
adapt to different flavours with the addition of ethereal harmonies to the
psyched out arcade blips of ‘Clouds’ or the plaintive dystopian lament of
‘War’. Similarly, The Bug’s riddims are a masterclass in restraint, retaining his
trademark heaviness but taking a step back from the atmospheric ambience
of his recent work with Burial and Earth. Instead this is an example of the
dexterity with which Martin can deploy a minimal arrangement, taking a
bassline, beat, FX and vocal and sharpening those elements for maximum
dancefloor devastation.
