The Dub Factor is one of the hardest most astonishing dub albums ever to be released. Almost 2 decades ago Paul "Groucho" Smykle captured some of Uhurus's ruffest tracks from the early 80s, smuggled them into the top secret laboratories of The Fallout Shelter in London and remixed the hell out of them to create a powerful and disturbing apocalyptic journey into the deepest and darkest realms of heavyweight drum and bass. Along the way you will hear echoing into infinity the sharp, piercing, tribal tones of Michael Rose, fused with the amorphous, spectral harmonies of Puma Jones and Duckie Simpson, all of which interweaving ten ballistically turbo-charged riddims blasted onto your soundscape with uncompromising power by Sly Drum-bar and Robbie Bass-spear. Smykle went on to perfect his unusual mixing techniques on a later project entitled "A Dub Experience" for Sly & Robbie, an album which could be considered The Dub Factor Volume II since it continues in much the same futuristic vein - albeit without the stunning vocal dexterities of Uhuru which make this album so unique. An absolute MUST.

I remember the first time I met someone else who also knew this album. That was about 20 years ago in France, and the bloke was a Punk bloke with the most extreme look and a pronounced taste for very hardcore music. For some reason he was at my place for a party and at some point I played this album. That certainly got his attention as he already knew and loved this album and we struck a lasting immediate friendship there and then.

I think this is the moct important thing about this album. It transcends the closed up Dub world to a larger experimental world of open minded people. The production is impeccable, and it certainly will twist your mind when you have smoked a few too many spliffs, but even now that I have not been smoking for so long I still love this album for how dazed and daring it is.

I've had this classic on vinyl for nearly 20 years, but it's well-wornnow, so when I saw this newly re-mastered CD release, I just had to giveit a whirl...and I'm afraid to say it's a rush job, compared to theoriginal, the remixing needed in a remaster is poorly done...Paul'Groucho' Smykle did such a great job of dubbing some classic Uhuru, andcomparing this to the original LP release, the balance is mostly way off,and some of Groucho's effects have been hugely lessened by incompetent'mixing-by-numbers' by some non-entity at Universal Mastering. Buy itonly if you can't get hold of the original LP or CD releases by hook or bycrook....
