Dub Spencer & Trance Hill are back with a bang and in their favorite place: on stage. This is a blast of sheer live energy that slips down as nicely as Jamaican honey. The tracks on this album were recorded at various concerts in 2012. Each track is so catchy, you'll struggle to stop humming it. It pulses in your stomach, it breathes under your skin and it glitters in your ears. The Swiss musicians have worked with the Hamburg-based dub label Echo Beach since 2006, and to date the collaboration has produced five albums. Another equally prominent protagonist on this project is the Munich sound and dub specialist Umberto Echo, who for the past two years has regularly accompanied the band on tour and who also performs on the mixing desk as a fifth instrumentalist. Umberto Echo recorded and produced the tracks on this album, magnifying Dub Spencer & Trance Hill's space. The nine live tracks are supplemented by six remixes by the acclaimed dub technician Victor Rice. The New York-born artist, who played bass for The Scofflaws Ska, has lived in São Paulo since 2002. Here, in 2004, he recorded his debut album In America, which explores and refines dub techniques. Unlike the old school pioneers King Tubby or Augustus Pablo, the influence of ska is very noticeable in his remixes. Live in Dub bears the unmistakable hallmark of Dub Spencer & Trance Hill, glowing with irresistible grooves, languorous depth, melodious beauty, and cool soundscapes. Far removed from purism, these tracks open the hatches in the dubby twilight and flood the horizon with breathtaking keyboards and silvery guitar solos. Live in Dub gets the masses moving their feet and nodding their heads, as the groove rumbles deeply on and on.
