For a decade Dub Spencer & Trance Hill have been sharpening their minimal, live dub sound. Physical Echoes showcases their mixture of tight rhythmic instrumentation and subtle electronic manipulation. Predictably there’s also a lot of reverb too. Echo Beach have released the album on vinyl LP and CD, but it’s limited to only 500 copies.

8/10 Customer review, 17th January 2016

Ten years after their first record (‘Nitro’, released on Echo Beach – a record label rooted in Hamburg, Germany specialised in dub and reggae) this group of Swiss musicians demonstrates they’ve come to a fuller maturity with album number six.

Physical Echoes is made of 11 tracks – some long enough to reach seven minutes – characterised by strong melodies, but different from each other so as to represent 11 different stories weaved together within one coherent narrative.

Bass and drums are definitely among the elements that make up the core of the record, alongside guitars, keyboards and a deluge of effects. The opening trio of ‘Dubios’, ‘Humble Dub’ and ‘Kifi-Mifi’ is pure psychedelic trance, whereas ‘Piedone’ (meaning "Big Foot" in Italian) and ‘Hyperactive Echoes’ are a burst of energy that serves as a catalyst for creating change within the album’s many moods.

‘Polar’ is absolutely the most cheerful song on the LP and has the potential to be a crowd-pleaser when it will be played live across Europe’s clubs, while ‘The Huggel’ (with Lee Perry’s heavily-echoed voice thrown in the mix for good measure) and ‘Wanna Ride’ are a reminder that Dub Spencer & Trance Hill’s grasp of the reggae-dub canon means they have nothing to envy to major global players.
