In the midst of this christmas/lounge/camp madness, here’s something for the folks who like their music a bit more melancholical.
Last week I posted an album from the Aggrovators, mixed by Bunny Lee, now’s the chance to hear what King Tubby (the inventor of dub himself) does to the same basic material. Just dub it up another notch, maestro!
The other disc in this double-album has the Observer Allstars as backing band and is somewhat more relaxed, even more empty than the Aggrovators’ one, which has more of a psychedelic feel with crazy soundFX (watch the gunshots!). There’s even a hint of acidhouse synthmadness in one of the later tracks… awesome stuff for sure!
As this is capped from my own records, you can exactly hear what my favorite tracks are cause these have been played grey. People who hate vinyl-crackles and noise should stay clear from this one!
