2010 seems to have barely started and it’s already been a busy year for dub releases, free and non-free. Time to draw your attention to some albums very much worth listening to.
We’re starting things off with two albums on the excellent Fresh Poulp label. Self Control is the first album from French dub producer Zazen. The heavy bass lines and the steady rhythms provide a solid base for his original soundscapes. Strong and spiritual at the same time, this is a hypnotic album with not one weak track.
Then there’s Afirmativa from brasil-based singer Andreia Dacal. It’s the second time Fresh Poulp goes Brasil, after the Dubalizer album, and we surely hope they will do this more often in the future. Andreia Dacal brings an exciting mix of reggae, dub, rap and Brazilian music. Nice one!
Of course you can download both albums for free from Fresh Poulp Records. Which by the way is one of our favorite netlabels.
