ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Dubmatix brings you a dirty mashup that features roots, dub & electro-dub - a hybrid of roots reggae tradition and electro nastiness.

Disciple of Dub. Follower of the path of righteous reggae enlightment.

This universe existed in the shape of darkness, unperceived, destitute of distinctive marks, unattainable by reasoning, unknowable, wholly immersed, as it were, in deep sleep.

Then Dub emerged, indiscernible but making all this, the great elements and the rest, discernible, appeared with irresistible power, dispelling the darkness.

Bangin' blend of good ol' roots dub and house dubstyle! Bigups to Dubmatix on this one! I am really impressed with the quality sound!

The disk is the work of an allround genius
The world of reggae and dub, too, offers surprises occasionally! Dubmatix from Toronto, Canada, is one of those. It simply defies credulity that 'Champion Sound Clash' is the debut release of a single artist [with some guests].

As to the quality, this release plays at the top most level. More remarkable still is the amazing variety of styles which offers everything that's fun, from Rootsreggae, Rootsdub, Steppersdub to dubtitles that are suitable for clubs. That Dubmatix shines in all of those realms is as impressive as is the care and the wealth of ideas which are exhibited here.

The disk is the work of an allround genius who furthermore signed also for the production, the mixing, and the artwork.From among the wealth of the different tunes I want to recommend to you especially 'Blade & Chalice', a pleasing bouncy vocal-rootsdub title with beautiful saxophon passages, the electrifying 'Journey to the Centre of the Dub', which shows its relationship to Zion Train's club hymns, and 'El Diablo Dub' with its wonderful piano and flute play. Rarely, very rarely has any album ever knocked me for as great a loop as this one!

An assured, polished and individual release
Champion Sound Clash
Dubmatix is the nom de groove of J.E. King, and it pretty much sums up the sounds of this disc: electronic dub. His production sounds a little like Jah Warrior - meant for dancing, not meditating - but with a warmer sounds and more live instrumentation. A clutch of tracks are as clubwise as they are dubwise, with a disco-derived hi-hat anchored by a rolling bass line seldom heard in house anymore, but essentially updating the "flying cymbals" sounds of the mid-'70s. As the album wears on, the songs become slower and more spacious, allowing for more effects and some instrumental soloing. Using I-Sax on horns is always a good idea; he always brings great riffs and improv tactics to the table. It doesn't hurt that King's dad, well-known jazz keyboardist Bill King, also contributes some tasty solos on clavinet and organ. The vocal contributions are OK, like most dub releases, they're composed of fairly disconnected lines of lyrics that end up being open ended statements rather than coherent sentiments. All things considered, King has created an assured, polished and individual release that should receive a lot of airplay around Canada.

A fresh, in-your-face display of all musical styles that appeal to Dubheadz
Had this album originated in francophone Canada, I could have built musical bridges to such French projects as 'Peuple de l'herbe' or 'Hightone'. But Dubmatix comes from Toronto and so, sadly, the only connection is to the practically non-existent level of familiarity in our realms. That, though, is the only sad part of this story. Musically, 'Champion Sound Clash' presents us with a fresh, in-your-face display of all musical styles that appeal to Dubheadz: Roots-Reggae, 'Club-Reggae', and Electro-Dub are mentioned in the label-info. At times the appeal is heady, other times it moves your feet, but always with exquisite quality. Its style reminds me mostly of Zion Train's last release 'Original Sounds of the Zion' and the 'Club Reggae' numbers recall the adrenalin rush of the 'Overproof Soundsystem'. A recommendation: Try 'Journey to the Center of Dub' for openers! It's an absolute killer! But there is yet more to discover, e.g. the easy flowing Bossa-Dub of 'Island Sun', sweet Dub-Rockers in the style of Pablo/Tubby and Downbeat-Soundz which would distinguish any 'Chill-Out' sampler. Dubmatix is three-in-one: producer, mixer, and musician. And then there are the amazing guest singers and -deejays. Play it and relax. True champion sound, 'fe real'.
