Digid & Dubbing Sun - "Track 4" (3:17)
Review: This is a serious weight serving of dub that sounds truly deadly on the right system. It comes from a gaggle of producers and MCs as far as Austria (the Dubbing Sun collective), Spain by way of Louisiana(Bukkha) and Belgium (Digid) all mixed in with a healthy dose of Babylon bliss. Opener "The Journey" has rumbling kicks stumbling beneath taut electronic chords as Ras Addis' mutterings continually melt away. This is followed by a more upbeat and driven remix before the tense beatless version closes things out.
Review: Main man Echo Ranks brings his meditative messages on "Politician" above some heavyweight and decidedly modern dub from Dubbing Sun on Moonshine. Such conscious messages will always make their mark when delivered on a decisive dub - the hits are fresh, the bass has that swagger and the whole mood is shady and nocturnal. Small Town offers a tricky "Dubz Roots" version while Radical Guru offers more broken beat and destructive remixes on the flip-side for when you need to rip the floor apart. Add in those warrior leads and you've got a real standout dub.
