One pristine OG copy of this seminal, museum-grade bleep ’n bass behemoth 12” up for grabs on the site - we’ll never have another. David Duncan’s inexplicable lonely sole release as Ability II is a totemic warehouse wrecking ball that’s perhaps the best preserved of all the 90’s underground soundsystem anthems. That distant, far-gazing atmosphere, the boomeranging alien bleeps and seismic, rib-cage rattling, Boeing 747 bassline - truly perfect. Born out of the 90’s ‘Blues’ scene - illicit after-hours parties in Leeds and Sheffield - Pressure EP takes heavy inspiration from Jamaican soundsystem culture and the emergent club scene of the time, spending 6 months composting down, tweaking and layering bass samples to produce that unforgettable low-end rumble. It’s the sort of record humanity should preserve in a time capsule for future lifeforms to be made aware of one of our civilisation’s crowning accomplishments. Super rare original on Bassic - (NM/NM - top collector's copy)
