With the second in the YCHYF series, San Francisco based Tussle delivers spaced out dub that is one part Liquid Liquid with two parts PiL. Side North’s “Animal Cop” shows a more mature side of the group with a slow grove that departs from the disco heavy club tracks of yore (see: “Eye Contact” & “Disco D’Oro”). “Animal Cop” is just an incredible track with its many layers and breaks. The dub groove of the bass and drums which begin the track are well complimented by the slow drone melody which builds yet remains almost hidden and as soon as it came it disappears into a cacophony of percussion which takes the track on to a different direction that’s almost industrial. The industrial percussion wittily develops into more of a standard drum break which focuses on polyrhythms. The stark contrasts of the varied parts in the track are well bound by the glue that is the incredible rhythm section of this group which has always been their strong point. Side South of this 7” is short but sweet. “Room 191” continues in the dub realm of “Animal Cop” but stops short to leave you wanting more. This seven inch is a great departure from Tussle’s Troubleman Unlimited releases, as well as a interesting precursor to their Smalltown Supersound release “Cream Cuts.” The 7" is limited to 300 copies on yellow vinyl.
