What names appear on the topic Dub in your mind's eye? Let's take a look at the Jamaican pioneers like King T., Lee P., Prince J. and Scientist and look to Europe: Then next to the crazy professor, Adrian S. and Jah S. it should really only be - right: Alpha & Be omega. And rightly so, because they have the European one Dub decisively shaped with her style, which cannot be surpassed in terms of heavy bass and dark magic. Meanwhile, the veteran duo Christine Woodbridge and John Spronsen have become a real one thanks to Spronsen's son, Ben "Alpha" Dub Dynasty, which presented its new family work at the end of last year: "Gideon" (Steppas). As usual a “double album” (as they used to say), with eleven vocal tunes followed by nine Dubs. Basically everything is as usual: Hypnotic beats, booming (hand-played) bass, really nice songs and even better ones Dubs. Only the sound has changed a bit compared to the previous albums. Somehow it sounds more like a sound system now: massive bass and high-pitched highs - not much in between. "Holy Cow" or "Thundering Mantis" sounded a bit rounder. Not to mention the impenetrable jungle sound of classic A&O productions. Only the vocals are nicely present in the middle frequency spectrum. I'm very happy that the Dub Dynasty places great value on text quality. “Black Woman Civilization” is a fine example of this. Otherwise there is not much esoteric or religious information to be heard, but all the more criticism of the system. If there is text, then this!
