Since the New York based label Easy Star Records presented a "reinvention" of the Pink Floyd concept album "Dark Side Of The Moon", which coincided with the 30th anniversary of Pink Floyd's 1973 released original album, "Dub Side Of The Moon" has been a phenomenon, spending 7 years on the Billboard charts, selling over 200,000 copies worldwide and kicking off the recording and touring career of the Easy Star All-Stars. The latter also went on to cover Radiohead's "OK Computer" ("Radiodread") and The Beatles' "Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Heart Club Band" ("Easy Star's Lonely Hearts Dub Band") 'inna Reggae stylee', but these albums weren't as successful and critical acclaimed as "Dub Side Of The Moon".

And now, more than 7 years after the initial release of Easy Star All-Stars' "Dub Side Of The Moon", all tracks of that album reappear on "Dubber Side Of The Moon", however this time as bass heavy remixes done by a select number of well-respected producers like Dubmatix, Groove Corporation, Adrian Sherwood, 10 Ft. Ganja Plant, Dubphonic, Dreadzone, Victor Rice, and Mad Professor. The emphasis for this project is very much on the 'spaced out' end of today's Dub scene, ranging from Dubstep to Jungle/Drum'n'Bass. Canadian musician, (re-)mixing engineer and producer Dubmatix, known for blending old-skool traditional dub with future-dub, has done a real good job with his remixed version of the album opener "Speak To Me / Breathe (In The Air)". The same goes for Groove Corporation's "Time", Adrian Sherwood & Jazzwad's "Brain Damage", Kalbata's "Any Colour You Like" with its strong Dubstep vibe, and Dubphonic's excellent "The Great Gig In The Sky".

All in all this set is a nice addition to "Dub Side Of The Moon", no more no less.
