Following the string of dubs that have acccompanied Necessary Mayhem releases in the last couple of years, one of the questions most frequently asked of the label is, >When is the dub album coming out?<. This 12 inch is the first step towards that target, with four heavyweight Dubstrumentals from Da Grynch. All four tunes have the Necessary Mayhem big bass, tight mix and special effects signature, all of which come as standard when Da Grynch is at the mixing console.
First up is ‘Joker Dub’ taken from the ‘Joker Smoker’ riddim series, which featured the hit single of the same name by European reggae star Ziggi. This instrumental dub is a straight mix for the MCs in the dance to rap over. Next is ‘Up There Dub’ taken from a forthcoming tune that features JC Lodge on vocals.
This hypnotic dub will create ‘nuff havoc for your bass bins. The third track is a dub cut of one of Necessary Mayhem’s biggest releases to date, ‘August Town’ by Etana. With the aid of David Rodigan who championed the original tune, ‘August Dub’ is one of the label’s most requested and sought-after tracks. Last but not least is ‘Monk Dub’, a revised re-cut mix of ‘Shaolin Temple’, a tune originally produced by Sly & Robbie in the ‘70s.
Da Grynch, having always been a fan, has brought it up to date adding to the already tuff bassline mixed with live drums and typical Grynch effects. Fans of the label will not be let down with this release. (added: 2011-11-09 12:08:00 )
