This is Fin Greenall's (aka Sideshow) second full-length release for the Aus Music label. Greenall would describe himself as the engine of Sideshow, backed up by the band he has been touring with as legendary London label Ninja Tune's first and foremost singer-songwriter, Fink. During the band's downtime in between touring Europe and the USA, and writing his critically-acclaimed soul-blues-dub, they came together in his studio in Brighton to bring us some more trademark dub-infused goodness. Most of the tracks are live versions, and covers or versions with samples from older records in the spirit of paying tribute, not stealing ideas. This fine line runs throughout the history of dub and reggae, and runs through this record. Sideshow admits that "Dub to me is about space, vibe, texture, it's about not thinking too hard, but feeling. Dub is like the church of music to me -- a simple innocence with immense power." Admit One has brought together musicians such as Guy Whittaker (bass), Tim Thornton (drums) and Ellie Wyatt (strings), as well as a number of talented vocalists including Tina Grace (Moby, etc.), Samar, Cortney Tidwell and Paul St. Hilaire. Also worth a mention are Fin's Quadraverb GT and Boss SE50 fx units -- both are crucial in achieving the Sideshow sound.
