Easy Star All-Stars,. Dubber Side of the Moon.

Mister bb,

Seriously, an extraordinary adventure across the sonic reverb atmosphere. I'm a Jamerican, a child of Dub. I live for the reverb and don't suffer 'tin-pan' sound systems that don't understand how to properly craft the infectious echoed rhythms of Dub music. To think that the Easy Stars would be affected by not just the Pink Floyd original but (obviously) their own first adventure with that Rock classic to re-visit it and layer and enhance and "drum & bass it up!?" Awesome! If you already own any of these seminal Dub expressions: Burning Spear (Garvey's Ghost), 'Dubmissions II', Bad Brains (I and I Survive), Black Uhuru (Strongg Dubb) and more of the same (if you're a fan of Kruder & Dorfmeister), then this needs to be part of your collection!

Dubber Side is a Journey


With different treatments of Dub Side/Dark Side this is an album that should be listened to and savored. At the same time, you can imagine a long trip on the dance floor to some songs you would never think to dance to - Money by Liquid Agents. I like the suspension of time and place that this song brings - all is fully eclipsed.

About Easy Star All-Stars

New York City's Michael G. (born Michael Goldwasser) and Ticklah (born Victor Axelrod) are the two longtime friends who form the Easy Star All-Stars. Goldwasser had been playing guitar with the R&B band Special Request, but after five active years the band broke up. Around this time, the guitarist turned his attention to reggae and formed the Easy Star All-Stars with former Special Request keyboardist Ticklah. Ticklah had been gigging with Cooly's Hot Box, worked with DJ Spinna and Dr. Israel, and created remixes for Les Nubians and Mary J. Blige. The first release under the Easy Star All-Stars banner came in 1997 with the team's production on Rob Symeonn's "Anything for Jah" single, and a collection of their productions, Easy Star, Vol. 1, appeared in 1998. Working with Brooklyn sound system Twin Sound, the two organized three tribute concerts to Augustus Pablo in 1999 and backed the likes of Sugar Minott, the Meditations, and Sister Carol on-stage and in the studio.

In 2003, the duo released Dub Side of the Moon, their reggae/dub version of Pink Floyd's most famous album. In 2006, they turned toward Radiohead's OK Computer and reimagined it as Radiodread, while 2009 saw them honor the Beatles with Easy Star's Lonely Hearts Dub Band. Dub masters like Mad Professor, Adrian Sherwood, and Kalbata appeared on 2010's all-remix set, Dubber Side of the Moon, while 2011 found the band releasing its first full-length album of original songs, First Light. In 2012 they returned to the tribute album format with Easy Star's Thrillah, their take on Michael Jackson's classic effort Thriller with Luciano, Spragga Benz, Michael Rose, and others as guests. ~ David Jeffries
