The Leeds duo DX1 name makes it sound like they’re one person, but their not, Their new album for the Cruise International label, Wisdom of Roots, could easily pass for the work of a small Dub Reggae outfit from Jamaica—although perhaps “Wisdom of Roots” is the wrong word for music this free.
Only the loosest sort of organizing principle governs their raw yet gentle percussive sound as it bubbles with an ease that brings to mind true roots music 70s style reggae, and its upfront bass sounds could pass for a buy gone era of records rescued from the pound bin that won’t come your way again in this life, an should be snapped up as soon as it’s played.
For this is independent music making a statement of the times we are now living through and may be things yet to come?
Some the Dub tracks were 1st released in the 90s and rest finished more recently,
This kind of music should be shared with good friend’s great food, drink and so thing nice to smoke or eat with the treble & bass set to full blast.
One other thing please take care to invite all the neighbour’s round to your evening of Reggae!
