Addis Records have nothing to do with Addis Pablo. And therefore not with me Dub. In fact, Addis Records is a veteran reggae label from Geneva that now looks back on a thirty-year history. Impressive - although the release list is surprisingly short in view of this. But it doesn't matter, because we are currently only interested in one new release: Addis Records Meets Umberto Echo: "Riddim wise“ (Addis) – and that is a Dubalbum (or at least an instrumental album). The Rhythms are completely digital - which they don't try to hide. All classic reggae beats, along with vocal versions found elsewhere on the label. Umberto Echo is not involved here as a remixer, but as a co-producer. That might also explain the crisp and rich sound. Very harmonious and highly dynamic. I like it. I could only blame the album for not having any recognizable arc of suspense and no rough edges. So that's exactly what's missing, what good ones are good for Dub-Mixes actually matters. That's certainly because "Riddimwise" bills itself as a version compilation rather than a Dub-Album understands.
