Top 5 from René
A Dub-Treatment by Adrian Sherwood that goes well beyond the borders of Dub goes out.
Full arrangements, nice bass lines, classic ones Dub-Techniques and analogue equipment - a Swiss quality production.
An album with beautiful brass melodies, composed with inspiration and produced to perfection. Everything is right here.
Double pack consisting of vocal versions and Dubs. Produced and mixed by Victor Rice. The authentic sound of real instruments is refreshing and the musicianship is impressive.
Here is one of the great old masters of Dub on the controls, who was always overshadowed by Tubby & Co. But it's not just the mixes that are great, the productions are too.
Top 5 of Ras Vorbei
It's nice that there are still labels that make it their business to make such extremely rare, unique ones Dub-To save sounds from oblivion.
Riddims for Eternity! Classics congenially reworked by Sabab.
Over 40 years of legendary and unique On .U sound. This is how the slightly different one works Dub.
Then it was about time. Finally some fantastic ones Dubs on the wonderful vocal templates from Bristol.
Ultra rare A-Sides, Dubs and Dubplates from the strongest phase of the best Black Uhuru ever.
Top 5 from Helmut
Shaped by London's nu-jazz and the golden years of the roots era, Nick Manasseh has delivered the most beautiful reggae album of the year with "On The Grove". "Grove Dub' is the equivalent counterpart.
Two untraceable, enigmatic and priceless LPs come to light. Nobody knows who mixed them where. Most of the vocal tunes can't be figured out either.
Both ultra LPs are from the mid seventies. The enigmatic and the unsolved questions ensure fascination. The restored sound is fantastic. The mysteries remain.
A 1978 reissue. Not the best pressing, but it was in the full broadside mixes by Prince Jammy at King Tubby Dubs goes down.
Paolo Baldini currently masters the keyboard of effects and on & offs like no other. The artwork, reminiscent of Linton Kwesi Johnson's "LKJ in DUB“ from 1980 ensures the place in the top 5.

The ultimate surprise in 2022: The Finns can also do reggae! In this case it's instrumentals, by an excellent horn section, but also wonderful ones Dub- Effects, brand King Tubby, benefit.
A surprising debut album that relies on catchy riddims, Yorke's sure-toned falsetto and fine brass sections. The whole thing is reservedly distinguished in the best sense of the word – as the supposed reputation of the British demands.
Gaudi defoliates tracks from the overly lush "Havana Meets Kingston" albums. What remains are wonderfully slimmed down Dubs that focus on drums, bass and successful hooks.
Adrian Sherwood, after a few excursions into genre-unrelated realms, is finally turning back to it Dub re: Brilliantly polished remixes characterize this companion album to the vocal release "Midnight Rocker".
An album that stands out solely and only because of the fine Dubmixes by Paolo Baldini crept into the top 5. This is all the more remarkable as the originals deserve the title of slick pop-reggae.
