To my delight there are currently fascinating ones Dub-Projects en masse. A few weeks ago I became aware of a side project by Polyrhythmics, an eight-member funk and world beat group from Seattle. The mastermind and keyboardist of the group Nathan Spicer has one together with bassist Jason Gray Dub-Album mixed and titled Rezin Tooth: "Rezin Tooth“(Wax Thematique) under the Dubheads brought. Originally they were, according to Mr. Spicer Dubs was created for the fun of joy and the album was never intended to be released. Fortunately, one has changed his mind and that Dub-Experiment now made available to a wider public. Who inspired the two gentlemen behind the mixer cannot be ignored. The usual suspects: King Tubby, Lee Perry, Scientist and the great sound engineers of the early Jamaican Dub, are undoubtedly the role models and delivered the dubbigen blueprints. The bass is throbbing, the drums provide a healthy heartbeat and sound bone dry in places, the organ delivers a warm, relaxed sound and the "blower" occasionally flashes echoing through the "Dub-Clouds ". Nathan Spicer and Jason Gray seem to have really enjoyed their project as they explore the potential of the with each title Dubbings all over again. That the musical templates of the Dubs originally supposed to have been tracks with funk and afro rhythms is hard to imagine with this end product. Vive la différence!
Side note: seven of the eight tracks are exactly 4:20 minutes long. Unfortunately, it has not yet been revealed to me whether this has a deeper meaning.
