May 2010 - Fifteen acts, one Dub engineer:
in this September 2009 release from
DUB GATHERING, Redi (Ruhdy) takes
us on a journey into Dub Space inspired by
the movies "Star Wars".
Dub Wars is
definitely not full of war vibes, quite
contrary to the suggestion given by the
title. It's not full of energetic steppers
at warp speed either, but rather filled with
-for example- milder versions of the
relatively new Dub derivate called DubStep.
these DubStep tunes, we're also treated to a
couple of relaxed DigiDubs where the French
vibes definitely come through. French Dub is
a sister style of UK Dub, but the
differences are there, perfectly captured in
this Dub Wars compilation.
the tracks are processed by one Dub
engineer, another very interesting aspect
about Dub Wars is the fact that somehow all
the fifteen acts get a sound which radiates
throughout the entire album. In a way, this
is not a compilation but an album by Dub
engineer Redi, or Rhudy if you prefer...
Dub Wars has not so much to do with war, but
rather with peace. Peaceful vibes from a
French Dub engineer who definitely knows
what he's doing: spreading good vibes where
that is so much needed!
