This Brooklyn band’s journey all started with one question. Can dub be preformed outside the studio? This album sets out to prove just that. Having worked with The Slackers, Easy Star All-Stars (dub engineer), and Antibalas, Dave Hahn has an eclectic background that really makes his dub music stand out. Joining him is superp percussionist Larry McDonald, who’s collaborated with Bob Marley, Bunny Wailer, Taj Mahal, Gil-Scott Heron, Ernest Ranglin, Bad Brains, etc. Only vocals on track 5, featuring Rob Symeonn’s golden voice.
Sounds like lots of dub with a little bit of funk added so its not too slow for the dance floor. Loads of echo effects done live with almost no over-dubs on this album. Also drenched guitars, head nodding beats, rockin’ horns, and watery organs. Although not much variety between tracks, there’s a reason they’ve toured with Lee “Scratch” Perry before. Put some dub back in your sub. FCC clean
