Review of Sound Iration In Dub Album by Sound Iration

If you're down with the kids right now or remember the days of the reggae soundsystem at Notting Hill Carnival or just appreciate chilled out dub music then you'll be very pleased about the release of 'Sound Iration In Dub'. Originally released in 1989 when the UK created their own blend of dub music that was making some of the main influences of reggae for example, Augustus Pablo, Jah Tubby and Scientist listen. After the 80's synth influences and the cosmic inspiration of Lee Scratch Perry, Nick Manasseh and Scruff got together and created Sound Iration and the Manasseh Soundsystem.

It's a real treat to have this national treasure re-released 20 years on with 14 tracks of unheard material. What makes this album unique was the creativity and new sound these guys made. For many at the West Indian Centre you can still hear this style from the heads keeping dub alive and real yet Sound Iration was part of the source of the fusion of dub and experimental sonic sounds born in the UK.

I love this sound and feel rather privileged to have found 'Sound Iration In Dub'. It's not like I haven't heard this sound before, in fact many times, however when you realise the influence Sound Iration have had it makes it quite special. This is a cool album and nice selection of classic UK dub sounds. It's certainly accessible to people wanting to hear this sound for the first time and a must for the heads. A perfect album for those lazy sunshine days.
