A very very special King Size Dub release. The music suggests sunshine and sound systems, hot sand and cool drinks, the bass shuffles calmly but also provocatively rebellious. Dub is the art of the disk jockey they first raised to stardom in Jamaica. In the fifties there were music mobiles, the "sound systems", the replacement for missing radio stations. The DJs, who were concerned about exclusivity, soon recorded their hit singles themselves, with instrumental backing for jokes and announcements. At the end of the sixties, this dub became independent due to technical progress. King Tubby and Lee "Scratch" Perry played with reverb, echo and retrograde tapes. Dub broke away from Jamaica and went to New York or London, where its militancy went well with punk.
This is a dub series that has been causing a sensation for years, and has been since the release of King Size Dub 1 (back then in cooperation with the cult magazine Spex) in 1994! In the series there were always trips to obscure counting (Vol.69) and specials about certain regions (Dub In Germany), labels (ON-U Sound Records from London) or bands (Dubmatix from Toronto)! KSD 25 presents dub as a multi-layered art of sound mixing. In this edition, Echo Beach's friends old and new dub each other or present their own versions of pop and reggae hits by the likes of the Ramones, Bob Marley, Blondie, Robert Palmer and David Bowie.
