thumpasauruspeoples Used to see Prime, Vegas, Mr. Thing, First Rate & crew around London years back; so good to see Prime teach the yout' a thing or 2 here about dub & bass music! 'Kunta Kinte', wow, now my go to version, BUSY on the echo & delays! Absolute controlled chaos, for true dub fans... Norwood G (speed up/down thing is great), Dipped, Rave & Storm are just brilliant... Something for all on this solid plate. Favorite track: Kunta Kinte.

Prime Cuts from the legendary Scratch Perverts crew with an upful six-tracker, full of life and intelligence, and teeming with fidgety, DIY, turntablist energy.
For us it’s a bit like a raid on the racks at Honest Jons, over the decades… but fresh and bright. It kicks off with a headlong garbling of eighties jazz-funk, complete with synths, a vocoder, and some incipient Herbie, all sagging woozily into some nuts pitch control, before a mean beat-down. Some dubwise Channel One follows up, with almightily anthemic snatches of melody and unmistakable chords, almost breaking down under a barrage of skittering effects, scratching, laser-fire, strangulated melodica, and cowbell. Then three excursions in classic Detroit techno: moody electro funk, with a sprinkling of Harold Faltermeyer; hard-grooving minimalism, with a dash of It Takes Two; then a more industrial outing, with clattering percussion and gobbling synth. Finally an ambient interlude — overcast but twinklingly ambivalent — to close.
Ace. A lot of fun. Check it out. Honest Jon's
