Official release information:
Review by Lloyd Barde, Backroads Music, home of the Heartbeats catalog Dub reggae has always been a strong musical influence for Canada's Interchill label. It permeates even their most floaty, space tracks, and serves as the undercurrent for the more upbeat cruisers. This sound has been part of most of their excellent compilations, from "Earth Octave Lounge" to "Infinessence" and "Magnetic Blue". If you used to like roots Reggae; if you like killer backbeats; if you think Jah Live and Jah Rule... this is the CD for you. It is All Killer, No Filler. These down and dirty positive vibrations are courtesy of Interchill acts like Neil Sparkes & the Last Tribe, and Dubsoniq (w/Adham Shaikh), as well as Suns of Arqa, Stress Assassin, Eat Static, Manasseh, Ott, Kumba Mela Experiment, and Jah Wobble & Bill Laswell, among others. Here is your Interchill dub album, likely the very best of its kind so far, tracing the modern dub-olution from psy-dub to roots reggae
