It's that time again: We serve you ours Dub-Top 5 of the year ending. As you can see, diversity counts for us. How could it be otherwise with such a diverse genre? We look forward to your comments.
Top 5 from René
Maybe the best Zion Train album ever. Everything is right here: composition, production, mix. Even the message fits.
Appeared at the last meters of the year and immediately became my highlight of 2023. Runs on a loop over the Christmas holidays.
Finest instrumental roots reggae with fantastic brass sections, soulfully mixed and gently presented.
It's hard to believe what the fat prince gets out of the Bunny Lee productions he's heard thousands of times.
A mystical and mysterious album from Belize, from a musician about whom hardly anything is known. It doesn't have to, because the music speaks for itself.
Top 5 of Ras Vorbei
Tracks that have exactly this expansive, profound attitude, this feeling of constant invention.
Jah Myhrakle is an electrifying reggae performer who presents a mental and spiritual challenge in a positive sense.
Handmade Dub-Chocolate at its finest with a jazzy touch from the Swiss capital.
After more than 40 years of absence from the stage, Reggae/Dub-Legend back with a brilliant new album.
Head Music: These strange sounds are remarkably bizarre yet exciting to listen to.

Just between us: 2023 was not a good year for that Dubgenre, especially in the area of roots. Of course, a “merely good” album could have been placed here, but that wouldn’t have been deserved. That's why no No. this time. 1 – unfortunately!
Even at No. 2, you have to fall back on the tried and tested: The “Acres of Space” album, originally released in 2023, is also available in 2001 Dub Syndicates is a wonderful work refined by Adrian Sherwood. A long-awaited re-release!
About the quality of the Dub-Counterparts from Mellow Mood’s “Mañana” album only require two words: Paolo Baldini.
“The finest instrumental roots reggae with elaborate brass sections and not so subtle ones Dub-Effects” – that’s what it says in the album review and you really can’t put it better.
The debut of Dub Plantage sounds like a lost album mixed by acoustic wizard Paul Smykle that could have been released in his heyday - around '84. Wonderful!
