Reviews & Comments on “Dubs Unlimited”

by Bob Harding on 13 December 2012

We’re beginning to get some nice reviews and comments on The Breadwinners’ “Dubs Unlimited”. Here’s a a little taste:
“It is Perry’s classic late seventies Black Ark sound that is most lovingly homaged here. Though Studio One, Pablo and the Radics also resonate. All is married to a sense of melody often absent in contemporary dub.”
Dub Vendor website

“Dubs Unlimited is swamped with deep and easy rocking bass lines and pays tribute to old school recording techniques and is an all analogue album, which creates a warm, almost soothing, sound.”
Erik Magni, Reggaemani Blog

Steve Barker’s Top Ten

“From the opening track “The Breadwinner” there’s a confidence and conviction that’s rare in most new dub sounds. An impressive debut.”
Steve Barker, The Wire, January 2013
The Wire Logo - Adventures in Modern Music
“Everything from the artwork to the tip-top mastering by Kevin Metcalfe at The Soundmasters, London makes for the most immersive, warmly gratifying listen. Big up! Recommended.”
Conor Thomas, Boomkat

The Breadwinners – Dubs Unlimited

The Breadwinners Dubs UnlimitedSO HERE IT IS!

Check out the 15-minute preview of this superb album on the KingSpinnaRecords YouTube channel here. The album will be released on 12 December 2012 and will be available on all formats – LP, CD, MP3 and FLAC. Just to avoid any confusion this is NOT the same as the CD-R album of the same name which we are already selling on this site. The King Spinna release contains all the same tracks as the CD-R but these are brand new mixes with many new overdubs (horns, harmonica etc.), all mixed to quarter-inch analogue tape and professionally mastered by the man with “the best ears in the universe” Kevin Metcalfe at The Soundmasters, London. The CD, MP3 and FLAC issues of the album include a bonus track “Joy [Discomix]” featuring the legendary Big Youth, but due to time constraints this track does not appear on the LP. Nevertheless, the LP edition is a real treat for vinyl fans – it’s that rare beast, the Triple A “All Analogue Album”, recorded on analogue multitrack, mixed to quarter inch analogue tape and cut direct to the lathe – not a ProTool in sight!

The LP and CD issues of the album will soon be available for pre-order on our website.

More news on this release coming soon so stay tuned!
