Fresh Poulp
DUBROOM NETLABEL REVIEW

WWW, August 2012 - They're not your typical (DUB) Reggae Net Label, but that's just because they prefer to focus on "everything electronic", basically. So you're dealing with all kinds of styles but also with DUB and even though you have to search a bit deeper, Fresh Poulp most certainly has some real DUB Gems in their ever expanding catalogue.

The Net Label was founded in 2004 with the intention to use the World Wide Web to distribute free music of basically everything electronic. In their own words, "Sailing through dub, techno, electronica and drumín'bass, the poulpís tentacles also lead to other musical style fiting with the electronic domain and all its crossovers (hip-hop, jazz, oriental music)."

A visit to the official website will certainly provide you with much more than was reviewed here in the Dubroom.

DUBALIZER - IN TRANSE
DUBROOM MP3 ALBUM REVIEW

WWW, June 2011 - Hailing from Sao Paulo, Dubalizer knows how to make some very interesting mixes in which he takes the concept of Dub as his guideline, while kind of taking straight back to the source those techniques that derived from DUB.

Unfortunately, In Transe does only contain three tracks. These three tracks all have their own specific vibe and style even though everything is undoubtly coming from the same producer. From the magnificent opening track to the heartically voiced middle one to the more Dubstep orientated closing tune, this is more than interesting to listen to.

Various Artists - Tentacles Of Dub Volume 3
DUBROOM MP3 ALBUM REVIEW

WWW, August 2012 - The third installment of FRESH POULP's Tentacle of DUB Compilation Series gives an oversight in not only DUB but also styles that derive from it, like Dubstep. A style that not every lover of DUB will apprecilove in the same manner, and so this album does not just contain Dubstep but also styles "closer to home", let's say.

"Don Dub" by Malta-based Mind's Eye DUB is the fourth track and the first upright, no-nonsense Roots Reggae track. Some great melodica and the typical bubbling organ. It's followed by Ackboo's "Holy Mount Zion" featuring Steve Steppa: a hard hitting steppers rhythm as the Book of Bibles is quoted and excellent singing is done.

ALGAR - STEPPACTION
DUBROOM MP3 ALBUM REVIEW

WWW, August 2012 - Steppaction could best be described as a combination of heavy duty steppers dubs and more psychedelic material wherein you can hear all kinds of soundscapes and voices heavily mixed. Not all the tracks could be seen as DUB as there are combinations with elements Drum&Bass, but the ones that can be should be!

There's not much information on the Internet about Algar, other than that he seems to be based in Sweden and Germany (LINK). It's also clear that he's inspired by the current and recent developments in the UK and the rest of Europe when it comes to heavyweight DUB sounds.

VARIOUS ARTISTS - DUB TENTACLES VOLUME 2
DUBROOM MP3 ALBUM REVIEW

WWW, August 2012 - They focus on basically "everything electronic" at Fresh Poulp, which includes DUB and Roots. This rings through at the selection of their DUB TENTACLES compilation series but in no way that should keep you from checking out the second chapter.

For example, the excellent opening track by the Spanish band Hot Drop, of which we reviewed quite some stuff here at mp3.dubroom.org. Although there's little DUB in it, the Roots Reggae Band doesn't disappoint those looking for the better Reggae.  Or Panda Dub's "First Meet", an upfull and righteous Steppers with vocalist Youyou. A floorshaker fe real! Barbes D is present with a cool tune featuring singer Sammy Gold, crucial DUB there!

Guitoud - Conscious Rasta
DUBROOM MP3 ALBUM REVIEW

WWW, September 2012 - Straight from the French (DUB) Reggae underground, this very interesting one filled with eleven titles all starting with the letter C. C as in Conscious, even though there are hardly any lyrics in this no-nonsense instrumentalist Reggae album.

"Conscious Rasta" is indeed interesting for a variety of reasons. Much thought has been put in the music, both in the samples as well as the (excellent) instrumentation and overall concept. Expect an album that is filled with intelligence and style, as you listen to the instrumentals with nuff Dub effects here and there you will definitely recognize the amount of work that has been put in it.

DUBZOIC - UNCEASINGLY
DUBROOM MP3 ALBUM REVIEW

WWW, July 2010 -  In four tracks, we get ourselves familiar with the musical productions of the Italian based DUBZOIC band and the vocal works of UK based Sista Sara.

The four works on UNCEASINGLY fit very well in the style of digital Roots and DUB which is so strong all over the UK and the European continent. The fact that this is a work where studio's in Italy and the UK both have been involved can easily be recognized by the lover of the better Steppa's and other Reggae rhythms.
