WWW, July 2010 - DUB Akom is a French Based band, specialized in backing up Dancehall vocalists such as Jah Mason and Sizzla. With that, they are a bit different than other bands we know from the French scene which seem to be more focused on Roots and Dub. In this four-track EP with French based vocalist Faianatur, this vibe is perfectly captured.
Don't expect strictly Dancehall vibes on the EP: it opens with a contemporary Roots like we know it from the German band Firetime and others. The second title comes in Dancehall style, we can hear why Jah Mason chooses to work with Dub Akom. Track number three, "Turban", again in Contemporary Roots style gives Faianatur the opportunity to introduce himself, his style and his philosophy.
Dub A Come, yes: in the last title of the 4-track EP we're being treated to a crucial DUB and we're left wondering why the EP wasn't in this style completely. But then, the EP wasn't about Dub but about featuring the works of Faianatur.
