Stream: Julio Bashmore, “Battle For Middle You (Maurice Donovan Dub By Ramadanman)”


Although Ramadanman cannot seem to stick with a single alias ever‚ thereby confusing his chronology and insuring a lot of heavy Wikipedia reading for the next generation of kids that rediscover this stuff, the music he makes under every name shares a distinct quality. He’s an expert at taking cold, sometimes harsh sounds and repeating them until they begin to sound comforting and familiar. His version of Julio Bashmore’s “Battle For Middle You,” is all harsh whip cracks and icy vocal snippets, and like most of the stuff he does, it doesn’t seem like it should work on paper and then you hear it and it becomes the only thing you listen to for months.
