How good an old schoolDubconcept can be implemented today, as Elijah Salomon proves with his album "Solomon Dub" (One Champ). It was made by the Zurich band DubHand-recorded by Conquerors and recorded in Jamaica by Bobby Digital at their Digital B studios, then mixed by John John at King Jammy's studios and mixed by Joe Ariwa at London's Ariwa studios. It is also based on a vocal album (“Salomon” from 2022). It can hardly be more classic. And that's what it sounds like - albeit with an outstanding sound quality that would have been unthinkable in the classical age. The Swiss singer, multi-instrumentalist, composer and producer Elijah Salomon is best known for his lyrics sung in Swiss German. However, I didn't really have it on my radar. That has “Solomon Dub' now suddenly changed. That classically interpreted Dub Can sound so fresh and inspired is a real joy. I was also positively surprised by the mixes by John John and Joe Ariwa. I'd saved the former as a digital dancehall producer and always dismissed the latter as the somewhat uninspired son of Mad Professor. Both teach me better now, because they deliver perfect craftsmanship and a firework of ideas. The inspiration probably comes from the excellent production that Elijah himself was responsible for and brought to the two of them. Credit for that should also Dubby Conquerors due, because the precision of their game is breathtaking. I can think of “Salomon Dub“ less in a sound system than with headphones in the subway, because the many details of the production and the mixes want to be listened to carefully.
