The Spirit Of Augustus Lives On - Reggae Album of The Month

Reggae | Wednesday 5th April 2017 | Phil

Suns of Dub, Dub Iration and Addis Pablo have come together for the LP 'Tribute to Xalisco' which was released on 17th of March.

As soon as you start listening to the record the heritage of Addis Pablo, son of the great dub king Augustus Pablo, is immediately apparent.

The low key, almost minimal dub sound dominated by the melodica that has forever been attributed to Augustus shines vibrantly throughout the album, with a modern twist sparringly incorporating electronic synth sounds that no doubt add to the feeling without taking away from its simple yet wholesomely nostalgic classic dub sound.


The Tribute to Xalisco reminds us that the dub scene is without question in the safest of hands if this great record is anything to go by.

A must have for dub enthusiasts everywhere.
