Although the Maltese Manwel Tabone aka Manwel T is already an old cracker (born in 1960 - even older than me!), He produced and mixed his first Dub only in 2006 and completely on his PC - which is why he is also called “digital dub remixer ”. His first album was released three years later, in 2009, now in 2012 with “Virtual Dub 4 ”is his fourth work. Since I also have “Virtual Dub 2 ”, I was able to immediately make a historical comparison which, after carefully studying exactly 24 pieces, led me to the realization that Manwel T maintains a constant style: classic-modern Dub with a tendency to steppers. Despite his obviously limited resources, he manages to build quite independent tracks, each of which has its own distinctive characteristics, be it a concise hookline, a melodic bassline or an interesting arrangement. Not bad - if it weren't for the a bit too sterile, all too synthetic sounding. Maybe he just doesn't use really well-sampled instruments or he just can't do the mastering. Maybe he only works with Windows ;-) Since he is probably aware of this shortcoming himself, he is giving away his album as a free one Download - which makes any further criticism obsolete.
