2nd GRMMSK release with freshly exhumed and reanimated DOOM[dub] tunes from helsinki. jamaican steel rhythmns in frozen echo-spaces.



"Oops. With some of that weird spelling on hand written covers, I mistook Grmmsk for Graaaask in Vital Weekly 813. They (*) are from Helsinki and play heavy slow dub music, which is even furthermore deconstructed than one would expect. The music seems, again, to have been lifted from reggae records and played through more effects, slowing it down in the process. Just what exactly is it that these guys are doing when creating their music, other than smoking another spliff? Less noisy than the previous release, quite dark and haunted. Oh and slooooooow, ma'n. Actually I like it quite a bit, but then I always had a weakness for dub music." (VITAL WEEKLY 870 fdw)

* dear (FdW), dear readers, actually GRMMSK is just s nerd bwoy with glasses, called GRM. he doesn't use drugs, at all. thanks.

"GRMMSK kehrt derweil wieder Babylon den Rücken mit dirty snow (TOTFORM 13, C-24). ‘[prison| EVERYWHERE’ und drei weitere im grauen Alltag von Helsinki wie auf Valium ausgebrütete Tracks drehen die Dub-Schraube gegen Null und entziehen der Musik jeden Götterfunken. Die ‘CRAZY [boneheads]’ können lethargisch nur noch lallen, dass ihnen das Hirn mit Leim gewaschen wurde, und tapsen als Zombies durch den Matsch. ‘BETTER [must come]’? Die Botschaft hört man wohl, aber als ausgeleierte Phrase. Oder verzerrt, mit einer Matschbirne, die im Zementmixer umgewälzt wird, während Presslufthämmer Verbesserungsvorschläge machen. ‘[what] NEXT’? Ein Aufstand mit Tamtam? Oder der alte Trott, mit Tamtam beschleunigt zum Joggertrab?" [BAD ALCHEMY 76 rbd]

"GRMMSK / Unfrei & Dirty Snow (Totes Format)
two tapes, made in the typical Totes Format-[un]fashion. These copies are showcasing GRMMSK move forward to a special direction, reprocessing jamaikan dub into slowed and hazed version of themself. Ghostly music but wearing the typical signature sound of a long lost era. The remade versions are creeping inwards with their broken surface and rendered vocal partitions, splittered and refragmented. This is not noise, nor glitch in the common sense of nor glitch in the common sense of the word, this is the clever filtering of hidden bassnotes and delightfully spreaded frequencies. GRMMSK is replacing the meaningful origins of the basic tracks and tells a new story based upon the source material. “Unfrei” means not free and depicts the situation of nowadays mankind perfectly in one word. Maybe that is the deeper meaning, maybe GRMMSK leave it up to the listener and receiver to reflect about that." (thorstensoltau.tumblr.com)

GRMMSK: Dirty Snow
GrMMsk: Unfrei
This is Grmmsk from Finland with two cassettes of his own odd version of dub. Fluttering, stretched and cut vocals, clanging metallic riddims and sirens, organs buried deep in a hounding cold lo-fi atmosphere – industrial glitch reggae, dub from iced Helsinki. Both tapes came in different limited editions with different handmade packaging and designs. The releases are also available as download on their bandcamp site. You’ll need long johns inna babylon.
