We have that again and again: sound engineers who use all their skills to recreate historical sounds. The master of them all could be Jim the Boss. He approached the matter purposefully and systematically in 2013, buried himself in his studio in New Jersey and tinkered with the sound until he succeeded in cloning the sound of reggae of the early 1970s almost perfectly. Not digitally, of course, but with nice, old, well-rounded analog studio equipment. Lo and behold, the world had been waiting for his reggae sound. Jim published the collection of his previous productions on the in 2016 Dub-Album "Hudson Soul" and stormed the genre charts on iTunes and Beatport. Now he adds "Dub in HiFi ”(Hudson Soul), and thus ties in with“ Hudson Soul ”. It's kind of logical that a retro sound can't make sense to develop further. In such cases, I am always enthusiastic about the mastery of craftsmanship of the retro fetishists, but not the aesthetic concept. Why record music that already exists? But here, I have to admit, I get weak: I don't like what Jim is doing, but I fell for him anyway. "Dub in HiFi “sounds terrific, nice and rough and edgy, contains tons of quotes that are really fun to track down and also offers wonderful melodies. Incidentally, the album is not available from any streaming service, but from Bandcamp it is free Download.
