Lord Tang is a project of crumpled beats and melodies; the latest solo incarnation of Dominic Cramp. Influenced as much by ancient dubs as it is by modern arrangements, it finds its space amongst the future travels of Demdike Stare, Actress, Zomby, King Midas Sound, Harmonic 313 and the like.
While bringing similar sensibilities from his other work with Borful Tang and Qulfus: disembodied paranoid ramblings, field recordings, dark electronics...Lord Tang incorporates a heavier and more consistent rhythmic element, with less reliance on samples and more emphasis on played melodic elements. There is a strong dub influence but the sound heads much further out than a traditional dub record. The delays hang longer and become their own instrument rather than simply accentuating parts of the whole, even becoming the beat itself!
