ITALIAN REGGAE STAR ALBOROSIE UNLEASHES DUB ALBUM, VINYL ONLY
A Vinyl-Only Dub Version of the Album's Select Songs Dub The System
The MOBO award-winning Italian reggae artist Alborosie recently released his brand new studio album and vinyl LP Sound The System (July 2013).
The multi-talented artist encompasses a mix of live instruments and analogue recording techniques akin to reggae’s golden age. On his latest album, he produced the majority of the tracks and played 90% of the accompanying instrumental parts. Sound The System followed his two previous acclaimed Greensleeves studio albums – Two Times Revolution and Escape From Babylon. Special guests on the album include Ky-Mani Marley on the Bob Marley classic Zion Train and Italian star Nina Zilli on ska-flavored track Goodbye. The legendary Abyssinians are also featured on a horn-drenched Give Thanks. The 16-track selection includes sound-system favorite Rock The Dancehall and the hit single Play Fool (To Catch Wise). A brand new music video (directed by Ras Kassa) can be watched here :
To accompany this authentic collection fueled by his passion for real reggae music, he unveiled a vinyl-only dub release Dub The System (VP/Greensleeves). The 11-track deconstructed instrumental set features select songs from Sound The System, showcasing the producer’s melodic hooks and impressive use of vintage recording equipment. Each dub selection takes a deeper look into the original song and bridges reggae's rich cultural history with a contemporary world view.
And his collaboration with King Jammy on the deep Don't Pressure Dub proves he can team up with the greatest for this kind of exercise !
