LP version. Released in 1989, Sound Iration In Dub spear-headed a new age in homegrown British reggae, continuing a mission started by Nick Manasseh and Scruff which pioneered what became "UK steppers." They were among the first producers to pioneer what's now known as '80s digi-dub, which has become so sought-after by today's dubstep producers. Swapping drum machines and synths for real instruments, they created an awesome sound. This is exemplified on this important debut release. First in a series of reissues drawn from both WAU!'s roots reggae and house archives, the original album presents eight beautiful excursions into deepest roots in embroidered skeleton dub form, which has lost none of its magic. Tracks like "New Style" turned the London take on pure reggae rhythm into a different kind of art form with the new technology coming in, but the album is also a reminder of reggae before it lost much of its richness and spiritual current through digitalization. Remastered 180 gram deluxe vinyl reissue.
