The original Witness My Dub (Dub & Dubber 5) was first released in 2005 and seemed due for a rework; a long Labor Day weekend provided the opportunity. Eyewitness Dub is the result and it’s a somewhat more socially conscious session this time, due to some crucial changes in the set-list, most notably the closing track … but even the opener (brand new from GiantStep DJ) could be taken as a reference to our political fever as we head into the last 2 months before the US elections: Brace Yourselves, indeed!
Regardless of the updated consciousness, the vibe is still fundamentally roots reggae, bringing both the rough and the smooth for your listening pleasure. If you feel the summer winding down, this is an extender you’ll appreciate … if you feel your patience and your passion for the struggle fading, let this roots music provide the energy you need to push on to the end. No matter how you come to it, just don’t sleep – you are an eyewitness to this life and times.
