Luke Slater’s L.B. Dub Corp alias makes a welcome return to Ostgut Ton. After the 2010 released “Take It Down (In Dub)” EP this second 12“ also announces the release of the “Unknown Origin” album which comes out on Ostgut Ton in November.
On the three tracks for this EP L.B. Dub Corp digs deep inte the history of dance music, the euphoric early days of house make themselves apparent on “Turner's House” and are combined with tribal dub elements on “Nearly Africa Dub”.
Benjamin Zephaniah, arguably the UK's premier wordsmith, lends his wit and wordplay to “I Have a Dream”, together with L.B. Dub Corp’s treatments they catch the listener unawares. Zephaniah undercuts the closed-down thinking that plagues politics and the us-and-them thoughts that can creep into rallying speeches. Together they create a surreal hymn for our pluralistic times.
2019-12-2 Very lucky to get the last vinyl...! Atomnation is my secret magic place. All started years ago with playing Machinarium, falling in love with Floex and reading about his love for Olaf Stuut.
Everything’s happen for a reason.
Everything‘s alright forever.
Think 4 yourself.
Waves are everywhere.
They are coming from nowhere and making me feel now here. Wandowaiato
