Oha, what is that? At this point I am always mocking unimaginative Steppers clichés (although these can be right from time to time and in the right place) and demand more experiment, more surprise, more free-thinking - and then that! An album that takes this requirement absolutely seriously. That breaks with everything that is typically Dub matters. That radically questions conventions, doesn't care about genre and style, bravely crosses musical boundaries and does everything differently than one would expect. Or to put it another way: The new work by Aldubb is either a brilliant concept album or a cerebral botch. "A Timescale of Creation - Symphony No. 1 in Dub minor“(Feingeist Records) is the complete title and demonstrates the crazy high standards of the album. A journey through space and time of the universe, from the Big Bang, the fragments of seconds afterwards, through our current existence to an uncertain but optimistic future - in Dub, understood. The 13 tracks on the album flow seamlessly into one another, resulting in a single 42-minute piece, one Dub-Symphony of subsonic bass frequencies, thundering wobble bass, electronic sound clouds, classical symphonic strings, finely dosed clarinet and trombone sounds and - it is hard to believe - normal reggae beats. Creation Rebels “Starship Africa” meets Hey-O-Hansen, meets Matthias Arfmann, meets Mussorgsky's “Pictures at an Exhibition”. It can be damn easy to lose your pants. The criticism would be positive to write about it, because art always has a bonus compared to mundane entertainment. But not infrequently, the highly acclaimed work would actually be boring. Although it belonged in a well-kept, sophisticated collection, it was never actually published voluntarily. How different it is here! Aldubbs excursion through the obscure history of our universe and into our much more obscure future is entertaining, gripping and simply incredibly beautiful with every beat. The relationship between new, disturbing (but all the more exciting) stimuli on the one hand and solid, well-known beats and harmonies on the other, is exactly right. It is impossible to escape the fascination of this acoustic journey. And if you don't get at least an idea of what by listening to it DubBeyond the well-known concept, everything can be more, must either be deaf or narrow-minded. Aldubb opens a door to a new dimension of Dub on. Let's go through!
