Dub Is Light Enough: Peaking Lights, 936.

Peaking Lights are duo Aaron Coyes and Indra Dunis. As they accurately indicate, their initials can be combined to spell out A.C.I.D. although given the hypnotic wonderment of 936 that probably ought to read L.S.D. Professing to reside in 'epic vibeland', the pair seemingly have little to no interest in pandering to pigeonholing, as they glide seamlessly through all sorts of musical movements with trance-like vigour, opener Synthy coming across as bass-hefty Gold Panda soul searching. Amazing And Wonderful appeals to wintry lo-fi emotions as rambunctious low-end frequencies ratchet and clank beneath Dunis' ethereal vocals, steeped in a similarly claustrophobic reverb to that which rendered Anika's teachings in dub history quite so beguiling and bewildering, whilst the segueing Bird Of Paradise (Dub Version) could quite feasibly be contained within the Invada beloved's collection of disorientating yesteryear reworks. Key Sparrow revolves around headphone-rattling haunting piano refrain and gawky guitars, discord transmuted in euphony, whilst Tiger Eyes (Laid Back) is firmly rooted in disco, BPM substantially lowered, bent and refracted through shards of shattered disco ball, gloriously brash bass once again stomping prominently throughout. Marshmellow Yellow is so languid it borders on comatose, a little like The Knife stupefied on stronger than strong uppers and Summertime is oblique estival anthem, sounding simultaneously like sunrise and sunset. Pièce de résistance however is All The Sun That Shines, a brooding dub/saccharine pop hybridity as astounding as it is innovative. It's not all too often that the underground rumbles of renovated reggae permeate the pavements to creep out into the bright light of day, although Coyes and Dunis ought to be sunning themselves as of now.
