about

two brand new tunes in the praised DOOM[dub] style. oozing rebelmusic, from the depths of babylon's sub-zero zones. "unfrei" is german and means "unfree". this states the general situation from which this sound emerges. the still chained-up roots, that are not only downpressed by racism and colonialism, but by a UNITY OF OPPRESSION with many faces.

reviews:

"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)

"Essential 21st century listening in my humble opinion."

"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."
