Dub Syndicate - Overdubbed By Rob Smith (Collision)
Dub Syndicate combines the efforts of talented studio head Adrian Sherwood and drummer Style Scott, who started laying down dubbed-up efforts together in the late ’70s. This compilation features a continuous blend of some of their finest moments, which have been mixed, mashed and revitalised by Rob Smith of Smith & Mighty fame. A number of famous Jamaican vocalists have been enlisted to coat the grooves, which draw listeners in with ease. Overdubbed is a cool musical journey, with high points including the troubled One In A Billion, a stringtastic cut entitled Higher Than Higher and the blissful Creation. This is an excellent introduction to the world of Dub Syndicate.
