Review: Irish wobble-maestros Dirty Dubsters continue their relentless assault on the junodownload charts, unveiling "Girls Pon Mi Mind" a eminently carnival ready collaboration with Champion UK Deejay Top Cat, which comes backed with some switch em up remixes. The original version pays equal attention to the chunked out beats as it does the authentic dubbed out skank riddims that shift in and out of focus along with some vintage JA horns, whilst Top Cat's distinctive delivery rides the circa 140bpm bump with aplomb. Those wanting something a bit rowdier will no doubt be satisfied by the accompanying remixes from Liondub and Spenda C which flip "Girls Pon Mi Mind"in a vintage jungle stylee and main room dumbstep way respectively.

Review: Take a wee dash of Ugly Duckling. Add a massive pinch of Dub Pistols. Bake in an Irish funk oven for several years. Follow this recipe correctly and you'll have Fire It Up, the debut album from the up-and-up duo Obese and Jay Sharp. Not to mention their crack team of killer mic-men. With such a wide range of vocals, the Dubsters hold down the consistency vibe with consummate ease. From Leiko Tola's Ty-style sedate delivery on "Musical Husslers" and Bass Nacho's gritty guttural system-chatter on "Real Bad Boys" to Danny Reid's melodic classical reggae sing-song glow on "Answer Mi Question", there's a tangible 'live' feeling about the whole set. A highly accomplished debut album. If these guys aren't dominating festivals in the next few years this really is Broken Britain.

Review: Dirty Dubsters have been bubbling for a while now; each cut demonstrating their ability to hone a hook and translate well in a live environment. "Fire It Up" is one of their best yet. Coming on strong like a young Dub Pistols, Braintrax posse member Mystro even sounds like Rodney P at points. With a clear, if a little naughty, message and some sun-kissed horns, this will rock well into the summer. Remixes come in all successful shapes and forms... Contemporary rave-bleep (Fog), electro grime (Spenda C) and squelch skank digidub (Jinxlin).

Review: The unlikely heavyweight connection of Dublin and Kingston heralds the second single from the Dirty Dubsters forthcoming Fire It Up album. Enlisting the unmistakable vocal rasp of legendary 'Mic Veteran' Burro Banton. ''Dem Can't Stop We'' is the infinitely catchy jungle/d&b hybrid the Dubsters are devastating dancefloors with, and this mini EP features surprising remixes that come from very different sides of the jungle spectrum. London's Yes King goes with a bubblin' 90's style digital riddim inspired by the golden era of Dancehall while Colorado's Bobby C Sound TV delivers a ghetto funk style mid-tempo break complete with earth shattering synth bass. Another international link up release from Irish Moss Records.

Review: Vietnam VS Jamaica on Irish Moss. Could this EP possibly BE more international? The vibes meet the air miles: Blunty's laid down the crudest of dub bounce arrangements and it's the perfect match for Blackout's throaty spittage. Remix-wise we hear the Dirty Dubsters ride high on a well-known reggae riff, Liondub take things back to 94 with a rudeboy jungle lick and J-Bostron take things back to 97 with a crisp n' bashy jump-up session. Massive.
