Dub Funk is the bringing together of dub, house, techno, jazz and hip hop music, and never more so than on this release.
Ten months in the making, 'Confrontation In Dub' brings some of the most talented producers/artists in their respective genres together, under the 'Dub Funk' umbrella.
Gravity's Rainbow interpretation of 'Music Of Life' stands as a fine example of how to inject more funk into an original track but still keeping the 'dub Funk' essence intact.
Hip hop is represented, Mark B (Jazz Fudge), Part 2 (Big Dadda), Cabal, (Tanty). Drum n bass is represented Embee, The Fellowship, (Juice/Splash). Techno is represented, Spiralhead, (Magik Eye), Emperor Sly, (Zip Dog). Ambient is represented, Feeler and Transequence (Tanty). Dub is represented, Shotgun Rockers, (TP9) and System Dub (Funky Zen).
To bring such a diverse set of tracks together and for those tracks to complement each other as a whole, as in this set, proves that the boundary crossing nature of 'Dub Funk', can and does succeed.
