From UK based Tanty Records, who released well-received albums such as 'Sounds Of The Heavyweight' and 'Black City Dread' by the Dub Funk Association, and last year's glorious dub sampler 'Roots Of Dub Funk' comes the next installment of booming, heavy dub vibes, picking up where the first volume left off. The album is compiled by Kelvin R. of 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. |
The sampler consists of strictly new heavyweight speaker destroying business from some of the worlds leading and up and coming producers in the dub arena. Gathered here are dub maniacs from Sweden, France, Italy, Australia, USA, UK and Switzerland, who brutally infiltrate the listener's brain with a flawless magic potion of dub, ambient, techno and reggae. This is dub with its feet firmly in the ethic and creativity of King Tubby's, Errol T, Lee Perry, Scientist and The Mad Professor. It's very hard to point out standouts as every track has its own unique power and originality.
Get in the 'Dub Funk' train and enjoy your journey through the heights and lows of the dub landscape!
