Radical Guru I've been on my screen since Neil Perch (Zion Train) said to me about seven years ago that he was one of the most interesting Dub-Artists consider. Since then I have been looking forward to new releases of the Polish one with great anticipation Dub-Wunderknaben, but I have to admit, I was never really enthusiastic - which is undoubtedly due to the overly high expectations fueled by Neil. Now there is another opportunity to move my picture of the guru in the direction of “genial”, because his new album “Beyond the Borders“(Moonshine Recordings) is out. First of all: As with its predecessors, it is not a pure one Dub-Album. Six of the ten tracks are vocal tunes - but built on real tunes Dub-Foundation. And yes, the radical guru lives up to his name: As usual, his sounds are hard & heavy. A quality that is reinforced by the crisp production. Sharp vocals by Tenor Youthman, Troy Berkley or Lady Skavya also support the effect. But I am also a little disappointed again; Somehow the music is too one-dimensional for me, too unspectacular, too conventional for a man who calls himself radical. Even the vocalists (with the possible exception of Tenor Youthman) didn't come up with much. It doesn't help if the guru is cautious about it Dubstep, hip hop or trap.
