Summer Of Dub
Released: 1 June 2009
Barry Ashworth and Jason O’Bryan, aka Dub Pistols, have put together a sunshine-enhanced reggae and dub compilation entitled ‘Summer of Dub’ as a cut-price companion piece to their amazing new ‘Rum & Coke’ album.
The Dub Pistols influences run far and wide. ‘Rum & Coke’ has elements of bass heavy soul, ska, electro-funk, lovers rock, Latin and hip hop running through its veins, but it’s the Dub from the band’s name that probably has the strongest influence on their overall sound.
‘Summer of Dub’ showcases these influences with a fine selection of lesser known gems that implore you to kick back in the sunshine and crank it up loud.
