  • The Vibronics - Dub Fire Part 1 / Dub Fire Part 2
Overall rating : (1 to 5 stars)   
Lush Records isn't a high prolific label, but when one of their releases hits the streets it's often worthwhile purchasing. This also goes for their most recent Vibronics single release entitled "Dub Fire". It was the joint discovery of Aba-Shanti Sound System and digitally sequenced music which inspired Steve Vibronics to start creating very catchy riddims in the mid '90s. In a relatively short time he managed to achieve an instantly recognizable unique sound. The Vibronics sound was introduced to the UK dub scene by Zion Train on their Universal Egg label's compilation set "Egg Files", released in 1996. Since then The Vibronics have released two full length albums on the Universal Egg imprint, "Dub Italizer" (2000) and "Dubliftment" (2004). The self-produced "Dub Fire" is a very slow paced tune with a running bassline and pumping one drop drums layered with beautiful melodies. "Part 1" is the straight forward instrumental piece, while "Part 2" on the flipside is the heavy, minimalistic dub version. Solid single, worth of hearing!!
