REVIEW. Yes, it seems to have become tradition now, every month I lose the press release for one album. This month it`s the turn of this compilation of Dub Funk from the Dub Funk Association, described as ï¿½Dub the way it was. Dub the way it is. Dub the way it could beï¿½ï¿½ on the inlay.
The backbone of this compilation is Tanty Records owner and Dub Funk Association founder, Kelvin Richard and the best tracks on it are his own, particularly Hustlers Choice, which moves away from the traditional electronic Reggae backbeat and twists the sound into sound into something a lot more dark and sleazy.
Other acts included on the CD are Alpha and Omega who provide an exclusive mix of Pure and Clean, Messian Dread, The Interruptor and Cabal. All of which makes for an extremely laid back, almost trance inducing mix of music.
