Docking Sequence: BSI Campaign Vol. 1"
Review, Spin Magazine, 2/01
by Jeff Chang

If there is something definitive in the moment Docking Sequence captures, it is that new dubheads have shed any ambient pretensions and forgone lab-coated genre-engineering for roots funktionality and applied riddim wisdom. It's a mission epitomized in Portland, Oregon-based Sound Secretion's "Perpetual Next..." As if to finally displace the Orb's Ultraworld influence, Sound Secretion liquefies the old liquid towers of new dub to erect and all-American monstrosity -- built of N.W.A. and KRS-One samples, time-lapse ambients, DJ Wicked's furious turntable cuts, and chest-pounding kick drums. It's evidence that dub might be the sound-liberating force hip-hop was becoming before it traded a sonic universe of possibility for a sinkhole of earthly pleasures. Of such architecture, new worlds will be built.
