Dub wise -- the art of space, subtraction, noise and silence. Bass abstraction. The wild suspense that leaves the listener teetering on the edge of a void -- a void in which erroneous ideas of space and linear time are left behind.

Jah Thomas worked with earlier genius alchemists of the genre -- men such as Scientist and King Tubby, who tore up the old maps and musical blueprints and designed their own to accurately represent their inner journeys.

Now Jah Thomas has returned with the cream of today's dub wise strategists with a selection of tunes recorded at Black Scorpio and Tuff Gong Studios. Featured here are mixes from the likes of Mafia and Fluxy, fresh from their works for the great Gussie P. Featured also are The Firehouse Crew, who have worked with Zulu Warrior Jah Shaka, and legends such as Max Romeo and Willie Williams. Also showcased is Style Scott, the man behind the majority of the hardest ONU Sound mixes.

Tune into the digital steppers of "Few More Dubs" with its flayed zinc metal high hat work, the rhythm's high frequencies turned inside out.

Check out the eerie drum and bass of "Gimmie Dub", a structure to play with your perceptions of time, as the rhythm movement breaks down into a spiral of echoes. Listen to the darker threat of "Glimmity Dub" as the DNA of the beats is broken down, and rhythms are dissected mercilessly.

Jah Thomas has returned in fine revolutionary style.
