It was the joint discovery of the Aba-Shanti-I Sound System and digitally sequenced music which first inspired Steve Vibronics to try his hand at building dub tunes. A minimal studio was put together at home during 1995 using the most basic of equipment - a dilapidated 16 track mixer, reverb and echo units, a couple of synths and a an Atari computer - all mixed down onto cassette tape. One such tape was given to Aba-Shanti-I after one of his legendary sessions at the Arches in Vauxhall, London. Throughout the years Vibronics have established themselves with a distinctive sound through a series of exclusive Dub plates for UK Roots Sound System legends like Jah Shaka, Aba-Shanti-I and Iration Steppas. Particularly between 2000 and now Vibronics - actually a musical movement built around founder Steve Vibronics - have been producing many strong roots tunes including several releases on their own "Scoops" imprint. Now, for their latest efforts, Vibronics have teamed up with the mighty Jah Tubbys World System. With "Terror" and "African Stone", Vibronics treat fans of digital dub sound to two of their most militant rootical stepper riddims. The positively scary "Terror" has a wicked booming bassline that literally blows you away when you pump up the volume. A great track followed by its awesome heavyweight dub version. On the flipside you'll find "African Stone", another solid tune worth of hearing. The repetitive parts in the riddim provide a mesmerizing effect. The dub drops real heavy and outmatches the straight version. Please note that Jah Tubbys has pressed a limited amount of this 10inch release, so if you're an avid fan don't miss it out.
