Sister label to The Lee Garden Historical Preservation Society is the humorously titled “Shark With Laser On Head Recordings”. The manifestation of a 20-year-old Toronto Jungle Message Board joke which spawned hours of shit-posting and burner account discourse and even a Gremlinz produced track to continue the joke even more tangibly on the legendary message board community.
Contemporary Jungle flagbearer Tim Reaper inaugurates the Big Bad Shark off with “The Orbit”, an aesthetical statement of intent, harnessing echoes of Wax Doctor and Alex Reece from the cosmos and pinning the feeling down with euphoric pads and a ten-tonne soundman b line ensuring that all the lasers are shot from the head into the sky.
Flip for the shimmering amen lash of “Quincy” as Tim collaborates with Motor City beat smith Nvious to pay homage to Dreamscape tape Bukem. Another entry certifying the tradition of cross pollination between London and Detroit continues to bear fruit.
