On The Ground In Dub
United Reggae - 'On The Ground' potentially Best Reggae Album of 2012 Mojo - 'The militant pacifists still packing a Fiery punch' 4/5 2012's "On The Ground" was the first new Black Roots album in more than twenty years and was eagerly received by fans old and new. As well as gaining numerous fantastic reviews, more than three decades after their formation, Black Roots were back as though they'd never been away and their music was equally relevant in the present as it was thirty years ago. To celebrate the success of "On The Ground" and also to satisfy numerous requests from the band's fans, Sugar Shack Records in conjunction with Nubian Records, have decided to release the dub counterpart to the album "On The Ground In Dub". The dub mixes have been done by Louis Becket, a man who has a long history working with leading reggae bands including Misty In Roots and Culture. He has used those years of experience to craft a dub album worthy of comparison with those from the music's peak during the 1970s. Recorded with a full band including a horn section, the dubs hark back to that time before digital production and sampling took over.
