Sometimes you just get stuck, and in the end you have to accept that. There is this new one Dub-Album (actually there are two albums) about which at the time of this review there is almost nothing or very little information to be found. Even though the band / the musicians / the producer conglomerate have their own Website, a Facebook-Page, one InstagramAccount and a YouTube-Canal operates; the gentlemen may not respond to inquiries either. So much of what you read here is pure conjecture.
... and so there were once three people, presumably from a francophone country, who banded together around a classic style Dub- Record album. Not particularly resourceful "Roots Makers in Dub"Named, it is the counterpart to an instrumental release, which is - no na - simple"Roots Makers“Titled. Both appeared on the same day, and the artists call themselves ... * yawn * ... Roots Makers.
One should not be fooled by this lack of imagination; the name says it all: this is one of the best rootsDub-Albums of the young year before; the accompanying instrumental album also gives rise to great joy. The riddims are catchy, instrumented in a classic style and superbly mixed; even the reviewer finds little to complain about. Well, maybe the drummer could have held back a little with the fills and there is a suspicion that there were no brass bands live in the studio - but that's about it.
Zum Dub-Mix unfortunately (or thank God?) There isn't much to say: Classic effects, well placed; not too dominant, but also not below the threshold of perception. In short: it all fits together well and adds up to a fine one Dub-Album that people are very happy to recommend - especially in combination with the instrumentals.
Incidentally, the three Roots Makers are bidding on your Website the individual tracks as exercise tracks - sometimes without drums, sometimes without bass, guitar, etc. For (budding) reggae musicians in lockdown, one might think.
Ultimately, it is to be hoped that the quality of the music will convince the listeners, because promotion is apparently not a strength of the Roots Makers. With this in mind, my unreserved recommendation: Listen and enjoy.
