Dub reggae - no 100 degree day should be without it. Summer has always been dub stylee time for me … this wicked hot summer's set represents just a portion of the impressive reggae tunes from the past year including a 2010 offering from Subatomic Sound System, the Dubblestandart remix of "Chrome Optimism" featuring both David Lynch and Lee 'Scratch' Perry, which has to be one of the most notable pairings of the year in any musical style. Thanks also to Giant Step and Dubmatix for their contributions to the mood; more music appreciation posted at http://www.beatconscious.org.
In a notable departure from the usual thematic material of reggae (politics, ganja), all the tracks that made the cut this time are focused on elemental things: dubbed-out inquiries into the eternal intricacies of the human condition like love, loneliness, brotherly understanding, the desire for peace and hope for the future … it's philosophy in riddim this time out, or you might say: it's Elemental.
