Brand New Roots,
This review is from: Hi-Fidelity Dub Sessions, Vol.3 (Audio CD)
If you're wandering aimlessly in search of a record that could recreate the excitement of your cosmopolitan late night excursions, you might want to lend both ears to the third installment of the Hi-Fidelity series. As other compilations in the chill-out genre have by now ran out of steam, recycling the same 5 year old tracks heard everywhere else, Guidance records keeps digging out true musical gems. While "Lounge"(featuring tracks by the Dining Rooms, Thievery Corporation, Soulstance, etc...) plays off as the sexy, groove laden soundtrack for metropolitan cocktail-sipping hipsters, "Dub Session" is a more intimate affair, delivering this time a much
more progressive selection (featuring the works of Cotton Belly, Tosca, Boozoo Bajou, DJ Krushet al...), preserving the deep roots of dub, but thrusting the bass-heavy rhythms forward into the new millennium. Both albums and their predecessors in the series, simply stand out as the best collection of their kind."
