Moa Anbessa is a DUB collective from Italy, whose collaborations on stage and in the studio with UK based Zion Train can be heard back in the style of the opening title of the album (also featured in Radio Dubroom 2010 Episode 3). Moa Anbessa's "What A Day" is one crucial opening track and what is even nicer: it's a track which truthfully promises a level of quality which will stand throughout the rest of the album.

WWW, June 2010 - The second collection of the more than great works by the Italian DUB Community is greater than part one, if only because this is not even a double-album but a triple -album!
It's greater too, because there is a greater number of styles and vibes on this release. There's much more variety in styles, but definitely not in quality. The Roots is there, really there.
It's a Showcase: Every track comes with a vocal and a Dub. With a few exceptions, they all come seperated in Chapter and Version style. Every track is especially mastered for the release, a release for which we not just give thanks, a release for which we say:
BIG UP ITALY MASSIVE!
WWW, June 2010 - The DUB Engine is based in Bologna (Italy) as a project by producer Nicolo Tucci and female vocalist/percussionist Sabrina Ferro, who also plays flute here and there.
Yes, this is an Italian release even though you hear German too (Ganja Dubfire). But that doesn't matter: the album opens up with an enlish sung tune with excellent Dub version (also featured in Radio Dubroom 2010 Episode 3).
The DUB Engine is in several ways interesting. It contains a number of styles which derived from Dub, somehow incorporated back into the original concept of Dub. There's a huge variety, not every track will appeal to everyone but every track will definitely appeal to some ones.
