Opinions may differ on Mellow Mood – the Italian “en vogue” reggae combo with the dreadlocks twins on the mics: some find it too much dancehall, others too much roots and then there are those who love patois-singing prosperity consider Europeans to be extremely embarrassing. Fortunately, Mellow Mood only interests us peripherally here, because it's actually primarily about Paul Baldini, who plays a leading role in all of the band's productions as producer, sound engineer and mix master.
There is no longer any need to say big words about Baldini – his productions for various artists are generally of high quality; but he can really shine with his Dub-Mixes: These are musical battering rams whose punch subjects the speaker membranes to a breaking point. There's a hunt Dub-Effect the other; between echo and reverberation attacks it squeaks and bubbles, it's a joy.
Of course, this also applies to Mellow Mood's current release "Morning Dub", which Baldini in contrast to the extremely compressed-sounding vocal album "Morning“ sounds wonderfully bass-heavy: It must be so saturated and dynamic at the same time Dub sound 2023.
That would be the “Mañana DubActually a contender for a 5 star review, if… yes, if there wasn't a desire for a bit more modern sounds. Mellow Mood and producer Baldini don't show themselves to be particularly willing to experiment here, see/listen to the drum and percussion samples or the synth sounds. That may be complaining at a high level - but it should show that there is still a little room for improvement.
