Descriptions, Reviews, &c.

"Lord Tang brings this self-titled gem to Gigante Sound's shores. In this new project, producer and Gigante co-founder, Dominic Cramp, moves into more melodic and beat driven territory. Influenced as much by modern beat wizards as the smoke filled classic dubs from the Golden Age.

Utilizing much of the old crusty outboard gear in his arsenal, Lord Tang has put together an organic melange of clanging organs, deep bass and sparse crumpled beats.

Lord Tang is a project of crumpled beats and fractured dubs over rolling hills of heavyweight bass.

Another solo exploration by Dominic Cramp (producer and chauffeur for Borful Tang, a controlling interest in the Gigante Sound Corporation, contributor to and collaborator with Evangelista, Vulcanus 68, Qulfus, The Talking Book and various other projects and recordings.)

He has remixed Marvin Gaye for the Motown Meltdown 2 compilation and Kemek for the San Francisco label, Muti Music."-Gigante Sound
