Reviews - What do customers think about Dub Sound & Power?
OK, but not great Aug 11, 2005
There's no question that Christafari's "DUBSound&Power" is a better album than "WordSound&Power." But there's much better DUB to be found out there. So save your money and buy a DUB CD on the Blood & Fire label. (If you insist on music made by "Jesus dreads," get Yabby You's "Dub It to the Top" instead of "DUBSound&Power.") You'll be glad you did.
dubalicious! Feb 7, 2001
It's hard to believe that this is Christafari's dub debut! The acoustic instrumentation is excellent, the riddims wicked and creative and the production is awesome. To top it all off, it's been mixed by Mr. Jim Fox of Lion & Fox studios in D.C. This man knows his stuff and has some incredible skills at the mixing console. If you're looking for some light instrumentals, keep looking. The bass is heavy and the drums crisp -plus echo for days. If you enjoy WordSound&Power then DubSound&Power is a must- it'll enhance your listening pleasure. This is beautiful music that stands by itself as well! The riddims are far from monotonous with lots of percussion, great horn parts and some vocal excerpts. The only thing is that I wish Mr. Fox used some "wilder" effects here and there to greater enhance the dub experience. But that is a minor complaint. A few bonus cuts are here with some percussion groove dancehall with "Babylon Is Fallen" plus an acapella version of the excellent "Why You Ago Look" (the dub version with Emperor Selassie's voice is great too). Also appearing is a dub version of "Preach The Gospel" which has a crucial trombone-fueled roots groove. (BTW, the dub version here is called "Everyday Dubbing".) If you have WS&P and get DS&P you can make a great mixed tape by recording the original cuts and follow them by the dubs. Or, if you're a radio deejay like me, you can play dem back to back on the air and mash up de place fe real! My appetite is truly satisfied by DS&P and I find this 18-track feast absolutely dubalicious!
And god said, "Let there be dub!" Jun 22, 2000
_DUB Sound&Power_ is soul-thumping goodness. Chirstafari rivals the likes of Black Uhuru and Mad Professor, experimenting with textured soundscapes in the tradition of Sub Dub and Revolutionary Dub Warriors.
I picked up this CD when I saw Christafari live last night in a dank, seedy little bar in downtown Salt Lake City--they were better live than on disc! Lead singer Mark Mohr and his wife Vanessa were enthusiastic despite the dilapidated venue. We were caught up in mesmerizing rhythms and thunderous beats, I only wished that the club had advertised their performance more so that others could have shared the experience. Their unique blend of reggae with Christocentric lyrics jubilantly conveys their brand of Christianity--and this, coming from a humanist infidel who scarcely shares their ideology.
If you savor reggae or dub, check out Christafari.
DUBSound&Power is totally awesome! Jun 21, 2000
With reggae music making in-roads into so many facets of today's music scene, DUBSound&Power is a very welcome addition. In particular, contemporary jazz is turning more and more to reggae for a more "urbanized" styling of instrumental music. In particular I think of The Rippingtons, Lee Ritenour with a remake of Bob Marley's "Is This Love", and Jamaican jazz pianist Monty Alexander with his Marley tribute album. What all of these reggae instrumentals lack however is the authenticity of the original product. In other words, the `Heart and Soul' of reggae music.
Along comes DUBSound&Power by Christafari. Terrific, authentic, `roots' reggae DUBs creating the reggae `Heart and Soul' missing from these previously mentioned tributes. With DUBSound&Power we get instrumental reggae music in it's truest (and rawest) form. This coupled with the message of Jesus Christ that comes through loud and clear makes DUBSound&Power a powerful album well worth making a part of one's CD collection.
Need more Dub albums like this......... Jun 8, 2000
Only true roots reggae listeners can appreciate a quality dub album and this album has got to be one of the best ever produced. For years no one has been able to touch the sounds of Black Uhuru dub with sly and robbie until now, Jim Fox has connected once again with a home run....this time with the bases loaded...Reggae music has never sounded sweeter when praising the name of Jah in dub fashion.....
