These “Riddims and Biscuits” came to life during the creation of material for future concerts of the Quasi Dub Development. F.S. Blummbastic played all instruments himself, rhythm guitar, organ and of course bass to send the results the colleagues in New York. Soon it was clear: These riddims have the most impact in their reduced form. They'd like to stand alone and get played back loudly.
For the drums, F.S. Blummbastic brought Helmut Erler aka 'hey' from Hey-Ø-Hansen into the QDD cosmos. Not only did he bang the drums, but he has also mixed, mastered and cut the fine vinyl single of this album. Here they present ten bold riddims, connected by nine 'biscuits'. The tracks sound raw as riddims should do without lacking an attention to detail. As usual in the QDD, the instruments are mainly unprocessed. This Dub is different to the classic post production of sound in the studio. Here it has found its way into the deep instrumental sequences played by the musicians themselves, enhanced by special sound sources like Blumm's custom built amplified spiral box.
