Various Artists - "Stoned" (MP3 Review)


WWW, October 2007 - If you can, take a spliff and feel. Feel the deep, deep DUB vibes of the Orb, Rhythm and Sound and others as they take us to outer space, beyond the border!

Reggae Music and especially DUB has an enormous influence in the development of what we now know as contemporary electronic Dance music.

In fact, the music would have sound quite different if it was not for the fact that well-known producers like the Orb are among the biggest DUB fans on the face of the earth. Drum, bass and effects are now the ruling factors in many musical styles, of which we find some examples in this second episode of the Jamaica Hi-Fi Podcast.

Reggae and DUB purists will recognize just how the Reggae formula is incorporated in the productions, each track coming with a different outcome. One track will be closer to Reggae than the other, one track will be more danceable than the other.

We'll visit the UK, the USA and Germany to explore some chilled-out, yet intense productions all designed to enhance a positive buzz after enjoying a little bit of herb. So when you can, light one spliff or chalice and if you can't, don't worry bout that. The music will show you stuff anyway.
