Since that night in 1967 when selector Ruddy Redwood spun a vocal-less acetate in a Kingston dance hall and the midnight ravers demanded "Rewind!" dub scientists have been perfecting the art of 12st-century soul tonic;) But while King Tubby's progeny - from hip-hop to house, dance hall to drum'n'bass - have gone forth to mutate pop's subconscious, mother
If only innovators like Wimbish could shake the cultural prejudice that insists. Tubby, Perry and Hudson must tower over '90s sound-boys. Enter Ryan Moore, the Legendary Pink Dots escapee behind Twilight Circus, who wrestles with history's titans and leaves the ring commanding 'nuff respect. In his kaleidoscope world a feather weighs a ton, colors cut corners, and time eats itself. Dub Plates Volume Two- a vinyl-only collection of rare acetates that doubles as a greatest-versions set - should be a landmark in post hip-hop sonic engineering. "Filter 13 (Ultra Dub)" is as explosive as Krust, as sophisticated as Philip "Fatis" Burrell, and as riveting as DJ Premier. "Dance Plate", a tribute to Black Uhuru's 1981 depth probe "Guess Who's Coming to Dinner", splits the riddim and boggles your ear cavity. Follow the bass or follow the drum; Mama's calling you home.
