It's a Southsea/Melbourne showdown as Maars and Showtime collide for a series of sparkling slices of dub-informed booty business. "Rakim Riddim" takes Rakim's "Heat It Up" and lays it down softly over a Levy-style digi dub groove. Elsewhere we find "Still D.R.E" laid down over a buoyant skank while Biggie's "Big Poppa" gets the Trojan treatment. Impeccable funk fusion on an international level.
German dub maestro Goliath is a machine; dishing up collections on a currently weekly basis, his unique version-heavy approach ensures all dub heads are considered across each presentation. Four cuts in total; each one comes in original, dub, riddim and melodica form allowing for some really exciting DJ creativity. Highlights include the stark, swaggering drama and autotune mastery of "Bloody Money", the unbridled positivity and rampant rushes of "Hail Up Jah" and the more sorrowful, meditative vibes of "Kill A Sound". As proved by previous collections, very few artists unite dub heritage with contemporary production techniques as successfully as Don Goliath. Essential.
