As Innamind Recordings continue to seek out the toughest beats from across the globe, they look to Finnish heavyweight LAS to provide the heat for their sixth vinyl transmission; a double A-side surefire classic that illustrates exactly why the Helsinki-resident is at the absolute peak of his game right now. The tracks are steeped in nostalgia and hark back to the roots of the dubstep sound where massive dread basslines take centre-stage, and LAS imbues his own mystique, invention and freshness to bring things firmly into 2013. The pressure of the subs that anchor 'Uuha' is all-encompassing; proper raw and analogue warmth beneath celestial melodies and skank-inducing rhythms. He draws from the same sub-zero, almost ethereal palette of sound and colour on 'Witch Doctor', a beautifully pensive track full of glacial harmonies, echoing voices and skeletal percussion. The sub-frequencies once again make you pause for breath; this is melancholic soundsystem music at its best. The digital bonus track 'Daggers' brings restless tribal energy to the dance, and completes LAS's Innamind debut in fine style, a release receiving heavy rotation from the likes of Vivek, Kenzo and all the usual suspects.
