of Dub Funk 5
Album sleeve notes:
Dub, it is a global phenomenon!
With tracks from Brazil, USA, Italy, UK, Netherlands, Australia, Canada, Sweden and France, North, South, East and West dub communities are reaching out and making contact across land and sea. We are presenting to you, today's global dub warriors.
Unlike other musical genres which crave and exploit the worst of the 'first' world's materialisms, the one minute 'think of me now' existence and life's excesses, dub has always been in touch with a certain considered spiritual expressiveness thanks in no small part to its foundation borne from its religious and sufferers roots from Reggae music.
Experience the power of this dub! Creating music which pushes the parameters of dub's definition even wider to include Jazzy, African and Funky vibes built on a solid concrete foundation of heavyweight reggae. To create music which pricks the social conscious but which can be dance floor friendly and then to get that music out to the very people who crave to hear these creative efforts from this 'niche' musical genre is not easy, it is a real fight!
Every producer of dub music presented here has been involved with is exploration and development over many years. Delving into new avenues of experimentation with sounds, equalisation and live mixing techniques in an attempt to take ones mind, body and spirit to a higher plane. Not just head nodding Spliffed-out 'one drop' tempo no! That would be too easy. This is a set you can dance to as well! From 'Steppers' to almost 'no tempo' it's all represented here.
Sound System dub culture is growing beyond the UK, France, Germany, USA, and Japan Spread the word about dub's real power!
Nuff said - Enjoy!
