  • Description Sometimes, all you need is the right bassline. That's certainly the case on "Instrumental Fantasy," the first of a new pair of singles on Golf Channel from Dean Meredith (in his Rhythm Odyssey guise) and Dr. Dunks, AKA Rub N Tug's Eric Duncan. It's not a terribly showy thing, just a ragged sawtooth with the resonance set just so, tripping up and down the scale like a groggy bumblebee. But, like The Dude's famous rug, it really ties the room togethera wriggly centerpiece ringed by drum machines, congas, pulsing white noise and an ever-swelling array of chords and contrapuntal riffs. Balancing heady snare rushes and hard-edged flange with Latin-inspired syncopation and bright, blocky piano chords, it's rude and graceful all at once.

    "Acid Fantasy" shrinks it all down to a tight four minutes and adds a dose of 303, resulting in a slightly more stripped-down cut that's still bursting with color. For slower floors, "La Chiave" is a killer slice of dubbed-out industrial disco, with a solemn voice intoning the title (Italian for "the key") over gummy synths, sax bleat, whistles and all kinds of delay-chained shenanigans; the "Dub Beats" mix breaks it down to just under four minutes of thump and clang that bears out Meredith's alias with a keen (if cracked) sense of focus.
