Mad Professor & Jah Shaka – New Decade Of Dub
Label: Ariwa – ARILP116
Format: Vinyl, LP
Two of best of in the game collide for a HEAVY outing on Mad Profesor's Ariwa label, here knocking heads with ever-present UK Zulu Warrior Jah Shaka for 'A New Decade Of Dub'. There's not an awful lot to say about this one apart from confirming it is 100% pure, weapon's grade 90's dub with a certain tribal feel due to the hand-drumming throughout, which allows each track to seamlessly melt into the next - a perfect LP to stick on, stick back and immerse oneself in the warm bass pressure and scattered, ricochetted rim hits. But don't get too comfortable because People's Temple leader The Reverend Jim Jones is on hand some of his impassioned religious sermon to keep you in check. A big one for sure. (Vinyl & Sleeve NM).
