Positive Vibes is a new netlabel out of the United States, founded by Kris Naphtali who wants to share the good vibes with as many people as possible. The first release on the label is the compilation “In The Garden Of Dub”, a nice collection of reggae and dub tunes from around the globe.
The album starts off with the slow paced “Deliverance Prayer” of Kibir La Amlak, immediately followed by Belgium’s finest Crucial Alphonso’s and his Ayubu Steppers. A great start for an album that delivers its promise of positive vibes and contains many good quality tunes. There’s for instance an excellent Roots Hi-Tek with a dark souding and intriguing Bulawayo Rock. Massada rounds things off nicely with their minimalistic dub style.
