Box of Dub
"Dubstep And Future Dub"
Cred-heavy London imprint Soul Jazz Records presents a compilation of exclusive tracks trailed as Future Dub and Dubstep from key artists associated with a largely UK-based scene. Big punchers such as Skream, Scuba, Digital Mystikz, Kode 9 are assembled, as well as Sunday supplement crossover it-boy, Burial. Channeling the future sound of South London boroughs, Box of Dub seems to set out to draw more clearly the links between contemporary Dubstep producers and their pioneering precursors - early dub explorers such as King Tubby and Scientist. Judged in terms of the degree of innovation or "futurity" manifested by these contributors, the results are mixed, though overall the material represents a decent overview of various trajectories within the sphere of dub-derived electronic listening music.
