Wickedness Rerubbed

Unitone HiFi is a group of New Zealand origin with Jamaican influences and New York connections releasing on a German label.
And that's more or less what I knew about them before this post. Anyway, I gather they're virtually unknown to anyone outside NZ and specialist fans of the Crooklyn sound or Incoming! (*) electro dub.
On the sleeve they characterize themselves Dub-Hop, which in a way sounds right cause they use some junkbeat drum loops and samples and some scratching. Still the rest are all dub as you know it, heavy and weird. Their first album here presents their style really adequately.

The remix album contains reworks by Incoming projects like Drome, etc. plus some from Muslimgauze, Rockers Hi-Fi, Manasseh, Immersion (Colin Newman & Malga Spigel) and a classic by Funki Porcini.
