Roots of Dub Funk 3 [coll] – [Tanty Records]

Rococo   7/5/2005   CD, Reggae

Come again mi selectah! Kelvin Richard presents chapter 3 in the ongoing compilation series “inspired by” the work of his own recording alias, the Dub Funk Association. Don’t expect to find much funk in this set, but rest assured there is plenty of dub and rootical riddims. Highlights include: some extremely tweaked production from the UK’s Alpha & Omega on “Jerusalem”; the legendary Prince Alla vocalizing over Jah Warrior’s “Our Father Dub” (check the Dixieland-style horn solo!); Mr. Dub Funk Association himself setting the standard with his own contribution, “Babylon Kingdom”; Zion Train’s DJ Perch giving the people what they want on “Edutainment Dub”; and finally, some squelchy electronidub from the Vibronics on “Natty Riddim”. Twelve exclusive dub plates in all, enough to hold you over until the arrival of chapter 4.
