From UK based Tanty Records, which released the well-received album 'Sounds Of The Heavyweight' by the Dub Funk Association in 1999, comes this mid-priced sampler, featuring 12 dub 'explosions' ranging from good too excentric. In the centre of it all is the aforementioned Dub Funk Association, a band comprising Russell (Disciples) Brown, Part 2, Trevor (Technician) McKenzie, Dave Hendry, Daniel (The Interrupttor) Bosshard and Kelvin.R. |
This sampler takes you on a wholesome journey into the next wave of dub producers from all over the world : The Technician (Australia), the Interruptor (Switzerland), Messian Dread (The Netherlands), Dubware (Italy) and the UK with Alpha and Omega, Cabal, Dubclash, City Dread and the Dub Funk Association. This generation of dub wizzards are vehemently seeking to weld heavy duty roots dub techniques with dirtier, groovier and even more syncopated melodic riffs and breakbeat/hip hop style drum loops. The styles of dub featured here range from more or less traditional sounds such as Return To The Controls and East Of Bacchus Marsh, to stark raving mad dub eruptions like Natty Dread Kung Fu. Each track has been constructed with enough originality to impress anyone who is into dub, dance, ambient and even reggae.
With 'Roots Of Dub Funk' you'll be in dub heaven !
