countless Dub-Albums locate their music associatively in space, although it is known to be dead quiet in a vacuum. No trace of echoes. So it makes a lot more sense to go under the water surface and try to associate echo sounder sounds. Our four favorite SwissDubheads Dub Spencer & Trance Hill make with their new album "Deep dive Dub“(Echo Beach) exactly that. Even if there are no underwater echoes on the sound side, the atmosphere is still right: dark, heavy as lead and hypnotic-hallucinative, as if in deep intoxication: the whole thing, of course, unmistakably live hand-played and no longer as electronic at all seeming like on their last album "Physical Echoes". The Swiss actually produce flawless products Dub with jazz sound. An idiosyncratic hybrid music that matches my idea of Dub equally corresponds as well as contradicts. Sometimes I find it difficult to decide whether to succumb to their fascination or whether to keep my distance. The current album makes it particularly difficult for me in this regard, since it largely lacks the usual lures, such as catchy melodies or well-known riddims. A brittle, complex and demanding music that unfolds its true power best live in concert, in the dense atmosphere of small venues and in the community of a committed audience. Unfortunately, the spark doesn't really want to jump on the record this time.
