Hidden Operator - Ghost in the Wires (Kings Chamber)

This debut album from Gothenberg based dubster Hidden Operator builds on his frankly superb EP releases of the last few years with neat ten track selection of sub-acquatic bass, snappy dancehall drums and the occasional electro or world music influences. Think On-U Sound for the noughties and you'd not be too far away. High praise indeed, but it's well deserved - check out the weightless skank of "King Creole" for starters, or the Pablo-esque "The Great Escape". Kings Chamber was already one of my favourite record labels of recent years, and "Ghost in the Wires" just cements that feeling - don't sleep!
