Mafia & Fluxy still produce music non-stop. What should you do with all the material? In the case of the new one Dub-Albums of the duo: Mafia & Fluxy Remembers King Tubbys, "King of Dub“(Mafia & Fluxy) it means: Off to the streaming services - without press releases, without liner notes, even without social media post. Does this speak of disdain for one's own work? Or is it even a half-hearted tribute? In any case, according to my taste, the album deserves more attention, because the two musicians have done a nice homage here. TubbyDubs, replayed digitally and remixed - by the way again from "The Pharmacist". If you don't listen carefully (and are not irritated by the extremely crisp sound), you might assume historical recordings here. The Dromilly Avenue sound is amazingly well copied, the flying cymbals hiss like in Bunny Lee's original recordings, the bass tends to play in the background, while the entire sound goes through echo chambers and various modulations. Of course, as is so often the case, why listen to reproductions when the originals do exist? A decisive reason is undoubtedly the sound dynamics of modern recordings, to which we have now got used to and which the historical originals simply look pale - as tragic as that may be. Another reason may be the reverence for the craftsmanship that consists in faithfully mimicking historical sounds. The third reason is perhaps the most beautiful: The works of the old masters are often of such outstanding quality that you always enjoy hearing them whenever there is a reason to do so - be it the new release of a retroDubAlbums.
