Radical Guru: Beyond the Borders

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.

Rating: 2.5 out of 5.

Actually, I didn't want to write anything about this. Nothing good can come around here. But here we are at least of the same opinion René ;-)
I also find it significant that, of all people, Neil Perch from Zion Train finds the Guru interesting. Zion Train is not that great either, as I have often found out.
In any case, the guru doesn't like me that much, although I didn't have the exaggerated expectations that Neil Perch evoked. To this day, I just haven't heard a really good audio sample from the guru, even though his "Subconscious" disc is hanging around at home too. He's not quite as bad as I make him look now. I have to pay attention to him every now and then. But in general the question is on the tip of my tongue who came up with the hair-raising idea that reggae fans could even begin to relate to trap in some unworldly, distant form. Duncehall artists also try to ride on such “mischief” every now and then. How bad must their weed be to come up with such ideas.

I'd rather go into the goal ............................................. lemmi
