Music Reviews

Recreate warm, sultry breezes, fruity island cocktails, pristine tropical seas and dreaded manes with just a push of a button. Dub Syndicate strips down to the bare essentials with their own style of dub. The only thing left standing is rhythm and bass over which all manner of strange and exciting echo, reverb and other scattered sound effects are overlaid. You, of course, will be dancing the silly way that you do to the mystic joys of Jah. Take a deep drag of Dub Syndicate and make sure to inhale it all! Fear not the Green Planet!
