Weeding Dub – “Still Looking For”

Weeding Dub – “Still Looking For”

Weeding-Dub-Still-Looking-For-Cover2 years after “Inna Digital Age” French producer Weeding Dub came back with a new album. “Still Looking For” is a continuation of the style that he got us to know himself from the best side – a combination of electro-steppers with UK dub sound. When you add great arrangements coming out of well-worn schemas and good singers you Weeding-Dub-photo-vertic-by-Qwestget a very energetic mixture. The least interesting tune of the album for me is the calmest ‘Love’ with Parvez who doesn’t seem to fit at all here. However, Little R sounds much more interesting on the same riddim. In general, singers with a good flow plus Weeding Dub riddims is a very good conjunction – for example ‘Check Yourself’ with Oulda, ‘Free’ with Inja or Demilition Man. The arrangement side is very rich, there are a lot of details and great instrumental parts, that can be heard since the very first tune with a beautiful violin sound by Ras Divarius; ‘Shadow Soldiers’ sounds like an action movie soundtrack!

I left one tune for the summary – ‘Sound System DNA’ with amazing Mark from Iration Steppas and his speech. Ain’t much to say here – this tune is an absolute killer soundsystem anthem, period. It’s also the best signature of this great album.

The Grinders – “Dub Forces in Session”

The Grinders – “Dub Forces in Session”

DTB010Crazy duo of The Grinders is back in action! Some time ago we wrote about their album (http://dubmassive.org/8254/the-grinders-under-arrest) and this time they take us to a journey of music and film. The whole concept of the album is related to the legendary film “Star Wars, so every fan of this saga must hear how dub competes with well-known motifs. A rub a dub “Original Lord Vader” opens the EP, then we are attacked by a quite dark “Digital Vader”, slightly falling into ragga climates. InGanja force” we are hit by a heavy bass, a dub atmosphere and the melody of  “imperial march. At the end we get a Don’t mess with Jabba,” a digital reggae with vocals by Jabba. To sum up –  I have never been a fan of the “Star Wars, but this interpretation of the topic convinces me to catch up on watching.

Roots Manuva – “Dub come save me” (LP)

Roots Manuva – “Dub come save me” (LP)

RootsManuva_DubComeSaveMe_albumcoverTeraz o albumie dla mnie wybitnym. Roots Manuva to postać nietuzinkowa na scenie UK, znana ze swoich albumów (wydawanych w Ninja Tune, a później w Big Dada) łączących hip-hop, grime, dub, funk, ragga, elektronikę i diabli wiedzą co jeszcze. Jednym słowem – kreatywna i otwarta jednoosobowa manufaktura muzyczna. Wydawnictwo “Dub come save me” ukazało się w 2002 roku i jest dubowym spojrzeniem na album “Run come save me”. Zmixowany przez samego Manuvę (pod różnymi nickami Lord Gosh, Walworth Road Rockers, Hylton Smythe) podwójny LP zawiera 10 utworów. Na pierwszej płycie wyraźniejsze są echa hip-hopowe, ale ich klimat przesunięty jest bardziej w stronę dubowej, gęstej atmosfery. Druga to już wyraźne wycieczki w stronę zwariowanych zdelayowanych werbli rodem z Mad Professora i kosmicznych, pulsujących rytmów słyszanych obecnie w niektórych produkcjach dubstepowych.

Tracklista:

A1 Man Fi Cool
A2 Revolution 5
B1 Tears
B2 The Lynch
B3 UK Warriors
C1 Highest Grade Dub
C2 Styles Dub
C3 Witness Dub
D1 Dreamy Days (SFA Dub)
D2 Brand New Dub
