“Dubtrak Assault Unit” is meant to be played at a high volume so that the warmth of the bass fills in the space and high frequency echoes swirl around into infinity. Big sound systems are like ‘assault units’, pumping out payloads of heavy arsenal. But this kind of ‘assault’ feels good – like Bob Marley sung in his ‘Trench Town Rock’: “One good thing about music, when it hits you feel no pain”.
Dub, more than any other musical style, has evolve in many different directions. It has gone a long way since the time Lee ‘Scratch’ Perry and King Tubby begun to experiment in their studios. Today, music that on the surface seemingly sounds quite different, draws from the same tradition. From DJ duets like Thievery Corporation or Tosca, to one-man projects like Gaudi and bands of French Dub movement like High Tone), they all share the same underlying rhythm, the same hypnotic bass lines and the same positive vibrations that originated all those years ago in the Kingston studios.
Bringing together elements of trance, World Beat and psychedelic electronica Dubtrak is yet another take on this very influential style. So grab headphones, get comfortable, relax and enjoy the ride. Or, better yet, blast it at a really high volume through a soundsystem and jump around!
