Sunmonx Consume Power Salad
Taking elements of dubstep, proper reggae, dub sounds, glitchy electronics, and loads of bass Sunmonx worship at the chapel of the slow motion dance floor and seem quite content to reside there for eternity. Power Salad is a thoroughly enjoyable album of deep dubbed out grooves, wobbly basslines, and sonic vistas that seemingly go on for ages. Sure the overwhelming influence of reggae shines through in just about every song here, but this is far, far away from being a reggae album; Power Salad has too much going on to be limited to just one genre. Tripped out, lost in the haze, and so laid back its hypnotic this is the kind of record that melts stress away.
Sunmonx are worthy of worship. Their soundscapes are epic and their record is amazing. Shaped by bass and dub, Power Salad is a cross continental, cultural, and musical exploration that stretches beyond time and space. I've heard the future, ladies and gentleman and it's played by monx...Sunmonx.
