Sly & Robbie - A Dub Experience
Record Date: 1984
This is a 5.1 conversion from the stereo source, made with Plogue Bidule using a method developed by some very clever guy's at dtsac3.com
You can burn wav & cue file as any other image file in Nero, but you need a DTS capable receiver in order to hear it in surround, else all you will hear is static in stereo.
NOTE: Don't use any 'normalization', for this will destroy the soundfield!
"A Dubwise Experience? Wrong! Eight Dubwise Experiences as I would say. Mixed by the hands of Paul "groucho" Smykle, the same who mixed the legendary DUB FACTOR (Black Uhuru) and the arguably even more legendary Ini Kamoze mini LP back in the 1980's, this album belongs in my personal all time top ten of favorite Dub Albums. The music on the album, needless to say actually when it's Sly and Robbie, is super tight! 1983. Digital Devices were not so common as today, and people were complaining about what they called a plastic sound. It's in this time, that Paul Smykle mixes some of the weirdest dubs with the use of these so-called plastic devices, at such a high level of skill, that many of today's DUB producers can only dream of making dub mixes like the ones presented on this CD. Without apology. Decennia later, this album is still ahead of it's time!
DUB is de-constructing and remixing reggae tunes. Smykle does that to the extreme, in this dubwise attack to your brain! Many wouldn't recognize the original even when they hear it. Most of the original tracks for this album, by the way, are pretty hard to get and have been topic of discussion in reggae newsgroups for a long time. Very special is "Danger Zone", sung by the legendary Errol Flabba Holt, super bassist from the Roots Radics in their Channel One period.
If you like dub, if you like Sly and Robbie, then this is an absolute must in your collection."
