Various Artists - Roots Of Dub Funk 4 - Rise Of The Eclectic Dread - Tanty - CD
Kelvin Richards as shown again and again just how popular dub is all over the world, this latest compilation pull in dub producers from all over the world. Jah Warrior from the UK, No More Babylon from France, Social Living Sounds from (SE, not sure where SE is!) and so on. 10 Countires in all. Bit by bit all what
is dub today is displayed. Jah Warrior and DFA always safe bets very traditional - but not in the negative sense good dub is hard to make. My favourite of this set though is 'Sufferer Dub' from Cosmic Rocker and Zeb out of the USA - its got everything that a good dub should - plenty of space and a deep deep bass.
Various Artists - Roots Of Dub Funk - Tanty
Very much along the same lines only with this time featuring a collection of people all into dub making in the UK/Europe Some are well known like the Dub Funk Association, and Alpha and Omega. Dubware is from Italy and they always come up with something interesting. New to me are City Dread, The Technician, Messiah Dread, Cabal, and The Interruptor. Its a great set of dub, and shows how diverse dub is now, to all of you keep up the good works .
The Dub Funk Association - Sounds Of The Heavyweight Dub - Tanty - CD.
Kelvin Richards with a team of UK musicians have gone way back in time for their inspiration. Around 1974/75 - a great British band Cymande-success-fully blended Nyahbingi with Funk. Strangely no one really worked with the idea again until Jazzy B' came up with Soul To Soul's mambo beat of the eighties. Still that was not dub, this is, and represents a remarkable fusion. You don't really hear funk basslines or funk drumbeats, but there is a funky feel to this work. Excellent.

'Heavyweight Situation', 'Skulk', 'A Family Affair',
