Dubblestandart
Streets Of Dub
Select Cuts/EFA

By Judson Kilpatrick

Published April 26, 2006

This dub collective from Vienna (yes, Vienna!) may not be well known on this side of the Atlantic, but they’ve been opening for and backing major reggae stars while fighting racism and right-wing politics in Austria for 14 years. Led by Paul Lasky, they’ve put out occasional recordings, but this is their first full-length to be widely available. As with past efforts, it includes both new dubs and remixes by outsiders. And although those guests include such fine producers as Mad Professor, Rootsman and Waldeck, some of the best stuff is by Dubblestandart alone. They have a fine grasp of the classic, earthy dub basics, and are very inventive with their melodies and arrangements. And though the remixes come in blocks of four or five at a time—often involving the same song—the album flows together as a whole very well. Those interested in the Austrian downbeat scene or new dub in general should check this out, and even purist fans of classic King Tubby and Lee Perry may find it appealing.
