Brother Culture: Code Name in Dub

The Brixton MC Brother Culture is experiencing something like its second spring. First the hit single “Jump Up Pon It”, then the successful album “Code Name” and now the third trick: “Code name in Dub“(Evidence Music). You have to give the likeable Rasta one thing: he has a feel for hooklines. Gold to one Dub-Sound system dance to really boil. Too bad, however, that he doesn't manage to knit full-fledged songs around these hooklines, which means that he has to repeat them endlessly in staccato to get to song length. That annoys me a little. I was all the more happy than that Dub-The counterpart to “Code Name” appeared, promising good Swiss quality productions without annoying lyrics loops. Far from it: the vocal part is for one Dub-Album huge. Even worse: without vocals, the productions remain terrifyingly pale. Fast beats that leave no room for exciting arrangements, stereotypes Dub-Mixing and generally mostly smooth sound. Well, I had hoped for more. But high expectations are usually the cause of disappointment.

Rating: 2.5 out of 5.

I can't and don't want to talk people into it. But I don't find the activity particularly effective. These are all cheap riddims quickly swept away by the computer. Hardly to make out any differences, since you're a nerd and hear that up and down. All of that already existed in reggae. Even a Gregory Isaacs felt 90 percent of the time "ridden" cheap riddims that were even more brutal according to NintendoSound
have sounded. No, no, and once again no. I refuse such a future, where one should be fobbed off and satisfied with such cheap riddims.
This is canned music. I don't hear this sound from Gregory either.

Brother Culture also has to be careful that its quality does not get lost in the quagmire of quantity. Better to have one disc a year and then do it with love, passion and dedication. This is the main reason why Bob Marley is still known, loved and famous all over the world today.

Otherwise, everything is a matter of taste ;-) ……………………… lemmi

Also don't get warm with the code name in Dub... for that the Clive Hunt - Blue Lizzard album is very recommendable ... very cool and instrumental too dubwith a big touch ... a real pearl ... I'm curious to see who will take on this work ... it's a must! ;)

Isn't it particularly "dubbig “but the music opens my heart. At first, however, it is too heavy-handed for me. That could then turn out to be in the long run
prove to be a reason why the album won't run that often for me after all. Maybe I am still too spoiled by yesterday, because I completely celebrated the "Heavy Rain" again. I like to "take off" because I like to take it off every now and then.
My body is completely back on the ground (at work) but my soul is still full in the weekend.

I also really like the brother. But it is now clear that I am such Dubs only hear when there are no others or would not exist.
I think the first 5 are really typical for “UK DunceDub". It couldn't be more stupid and mechanical. In addition, they crackle all the time
always very sympathetic vocals from Brother Culture. There can be no mystical thing like this DubExperience come about. Since you basically have fun too
about systematically banging his head against the wall.
"Dub Generation “is basically no better, but somehow I had to pay attention a little. I particularly like the second half.
I can't explain it rationally now. Also "Dub Them “went down well with me. Maybe that's because the “riddim piano” (keyboard) is at least a little bit here
provides "KlimBim" in the head. Somehow the riddim grabbed me, too, but in the end these are just small glimpses of light on this dull pounding
UKDub Uniformity.
I think the Steppers Group will celebrate it.

Clive Hunt “Blue Lizzard” and the data from Brother on bandcamp also have to be checked.

Until ………………. lemmi
