This album is the dub companion to "Rhythm & Sound w/ The Artists", and as that album collected the 8 vocals recorded in Berlin, New York and Jamaica over the last three years for Berlin's Rhythm & Sound label, the 8 dubs featured on the flipside of these 10" releases are collected here. Where 'w/ The Artists' draws because of its vocals the reggae-card, 'the versions' makes clear how deep the minimalistic dense production is embedded in modern dance production as much as it is in the roots of dub. Recommended as much as the vocal album. Just follow the link to "The Artists" for a more detailed view on what to expect.
