Oddly enough, I wouldn't even consider this album to be a "dub techno" album completely. In a genre long-plagued with tags like "boring", "samey", and "grey", I commend Jordan for creating an absurdly unique and album-oriented sound. The album systematically alters the structure of most classic dub techno songs in favor of a more post-rock-like construction: there's a clear beginning, a build-up, a climax, and then a finale or coda. Even pop music makes an appearance on "Deep Valley," a clear standout with an arresting, panoramic climax. By doing so, it circumvents absolutely all expectations for the dub genre. OTM for sure lives up to it's "sea to sky" concept. I'm sure Jamie would be hard-pressed to find newer unsigned artists out there with an ability to create newly-constructed forms of natural beauty in music so well–an ability that Jordan so deftly uses on his new album–that his label's roster has churned out over the years. What a true dub masterpiece, Basic Channel for the 2010s.
