Pop sensibility reggae re-workings of Madness, DJ Vadim and Austrian popsters Mr Dero & Farina Miss rub shoulders with chasms of psychedelic dub such as The Unlimiters’ Loophole and Resonators’ Sweet Love Affair (Inna Chicken Head Dub). New Zealand artists Dub Terminator and The Black Seeds get the signature Jstar treatment with deep melodic bass lines and spacious stellar sonics. Jstar’s version of The Empty Heads’ Ya Ya, Das Mic, a Jstar collaboration with Uwe Kaa and Jstar’s own brand new Fish Finger Tentacle Dub are all previously unreleased.
