Product description

Product Description

Dub meets dreamy blues, hypnotic grooves, jazz piano and driving funk brass. Dub Colossus brings together an extraordinary but little known African musical heritage, a labour of love recording in a makeshift studio in downtown Addis Ababa and then a journey back to Real World to capture for the first time ever in the UK some of Ethiopia's finest performers. Produced by Dubulah, one half of the British group Temple Of Sound, Dub Colossus is a unique attempt to mix traditional East African music with experimental reggae sounds. From the most primitive recording context to one of the best in the world, this is an audio journey, and a discovery of one of the most alluring, funky and seductive genres of African music.

Review

"...as if Lee Scratch Perry were producing 'Éthiopiques'" - *****
-- Financial Times, October 25/26, 2008

...replete with magical moments. ***** -- The Independent, 10th October 2008

The swirl of sensuous vocals, cinematic horns and grounding bass lines have been brought together to majestic effect. -- Independent On Sunday, 12th October 2008
