Paleman has been arguably Swamp 81’s biggest hitter in recent years, their radio shows are littered with impressive unreleased tracks of his we would all love to see released. Unfortunately for us, label boss Loefah’s loyalty to the ethos of dubplate culture means many of these unknown beauties may remain as such – until now that is. The first release on Paleman’s own imprint, PLMN, which he established late last year to release his own music, is a strong one. Both tunes on the release are strong, however B-side is a seriously impressive arrangement. Ice Parade is the sign of an artist beginning to operate at a new level. Paleman creates a surreal landscape through tripped out tribal rhythms and a mastery of atmosphere, showing us a mesmerising depth to his musical vision that goes beyond the percussive rollers we know him for. The PLMN imprint is a sign that a man alleged to have hundreds of unreleased tracks is preparing himself to take off to new levels – news that will hugely excite any fans.
