9/10 Brian 08 November 2007
Well Dubstep seems to be showing no signs of abating in popularity with hot dubplates and scorching comps winging their way around the world (it's even reached New Zealand where the likes of DJ Hype, jump up jungle's mid 90s kingpin is still the hottest ticket in town!!) and Soul Jazz, reputable players in archive funk, soul, hip hop, reggae and all things rump shaking, have their second collection of blistering tunes out for the connoisseur. ' Box of Dub 2' includes 12 tracks of stomach rumbling, feet shuffling head mantras ranging from the dark, eerie and minimal to the more trad spiritual/rhythmical. Cult of the 13th Hour for instance remind me of Lionrock who in turn were possibly inspired by the genius that is Linton Kwesi Johnson so it's an ever evolving scene. My pick is King Soly's 'Tamil Dub' which does it for me totally. A subtle cerebral massager with a playful and sweet bassline. Ace. The usual suspects are out in force, my faves Digital Mystikz & Skream offering up a couple of cuts a piece with scene leaders such as Kode 9 and Pinch coming on strong. I think the longevity in this music will be assured due to its traditional roots inflections and the attention to detail evident in the pace and space of each track. It's also turned a lot of younger converts onto the timelessness & spirituality of roots Dub, splicing genres without bastardising or diluting the core feeling of this sparse but weighty music. If techno/dub hybrid labels such as Basic Channel/Chain Reaction are still feted so feverishly to this day then there's no reason why the likes of Hyperdub & DMZ can't still be throwing up bass-tastic slabs of genius 10 years down the line for a new generation. Quality gear indeed....CD/2LP.
