Album: East Star All-Stars, Dubber Side Of The Moon (Easy Star)
Friday 15 October 2010
Having since extended their reggaefication techniques to Radiohead and The Beatles, the Easy Star All-Stars return to their original triumph, enlisting a range of dub mixers to send their Dub Side Of The Moon even further into outer space.
It's a fascinating blend of classic roots dub – most expertly represented by the echoing melodica of Adrian Sherwood's Brain Damage – and more outlandish strategies such as those visited upon Any Colour You Like by Israeli mixer Kalbata, who turns it into a staccato dub stepper laced with fluttering synth lines. Elsewhere, Dreadzone transforms Us And Them into a skittering groove lit by delicate guitar arpeggios, while the Pink Floyd origins of Border Crossing's splendid Step It Pon The Rastaman Scene are virtually undetectable.
