WWW, June 2009 - Traditional DUB meets contemporary styles in this 6-track EP by the Spanish-based Neblina Sound. Crucial, classic riddims are transformed into impressive works of mixing Art with a capital "A". Often, the music comes close to that of the DUB genius Mad Professor.
In the nine minute that the video lasts, we start with Hugh Mundell singing along with guitar. Then Augustus Pablo takes his melodica and the music continues. Shot in back and white, this rare and historical footage gives an interesting oversight in the Roots of Reggae.
Natural Roots, even for "the Prince of DUB", as we discover in the short interview -or better: reasoning- with Augustus Pablo that follows the two chants by Hugh Mundell.
Relax, and let this piece of true Roots give you a vibe...
