DUBROOM MP3 REVIEW
WWW, March 2008 - Vintage Roots DUB takes us on a Version Excursion extra-ordinary straight back to Jamaica during the 1970's. An all-killer-no-filler selection of stricktly DUB from a time and place wherein the technique was still young.
This impressive no-nonsense mix by Australian based DJ Delay contains a selection of killer DUBs, wherein our host gives us a taste of the works of the hottest engineers around: King Tubby, Ernest Hoo-Kim, Scientist and Prince Jammy among others.
To those of us who have been around for a while, the selection will definitely produce a confirmation of the statement that the 19 titles together form an all-killer-no-filler show. The kind of mix you put on your player to give people a crucial taste of DUB in it's youngest years: powerfulness and creativity galore!
Hard Steppers and One Drops form the overtone, while the Spring Reverbs and Tape Echo's fly around like dreadlocks on stage during a crucial Rasta Reggae concert.
