Pickout All Star Band: Revelation Dub

Milton Blake's album "Temporary Obstacle" (Pickout), produced by Lloyd Dennis, was released in November last year. Dennis founded "Pickout Recordings" in Kingston in 1987 and later "Pickout Records" in London. He now seems to be completely active in the UK, at least Blake's album was recorded there. To be precise: In the Conscious Sounds studio with Dougie Wardrop in the Control Tower and Mafia & Fluxy, and above all Russ Disciples, at Logic Pro. While Blake performs classic reggae songs for the best, Russ D. in particular delivered decent steppers style with smack and oomph, the one in the six Dubs of the showcase album comes into its own. But there was obviously still more possible, which is why a pure one based on “Temporary Obstacle” Dub-Album saw the light of day that outwardly negates all connections to Blake's album: Pickout All Star Band - "Revelation Dub“(Pickout Recordings). Different title, completely different cover design (terrible by the way) and all tracks have new titles - although their order has been retained. After all, it's not just about the collected ones Dubs from "Temporary Obstacle". All DubIt's been reshuffled - I assume by Dougie Conscious - and come in two cuts. At first glance, everything seems very loveless, but the Dubs have it all. Fat, fat sound, dynamic, crisp and powerful, routine but effective Dub-Mixing and superb mastering. The album was released as a purely digital release, below the line and without PR support. The only advertisement consists of the following sentence on Bandcamp: "This is a very good roots reggae dud album" (sic). But that's why there is dubblog so that you can Dub- Pearls are not simply overlooked.

Rating: 4 out of 5.

And that's exactly why I stop by here every morning, René!

Nice that you speak from my soul again. Pickout All Star Band, Mafia and Fluxy, Dougie Conscious (!!!). I have found these names to be the best indicators of the finest DubMusic burned into my brain.
All riddims are - for me - perfect !!! But I'm particularly happy about “Revelation Dub 1/2 "because it reminds me of an old Mikey Dread Tune that I already had" back then "
caused an inner sensation and every time the needle slides into the groove again and spreads the vibes over the boxes, he does it again. And then the “Poor People Dub 1/2 “!
Also wield a large-scale magic offensive on me. But as I said, the whole album is - for my taste - exactly right again. Especially since the Dubs
from Dub actually put a little icing on the cake again.

Yeah man !!! Gimmie The DoubbleDuBB!!! ………………………. lemmi
