CD Review: Super Hi-Fi's 'Dub To The Bone'

Super Hi-Fi
Dub To The Bone
Electric Cowbell Records

The jazzy and funk-laden songs on Dub To The Bone are anything but traditional. In fact, the songs reflect a futuristic tone with swishy percussion, reggae-type beats, fuzzy electronic adornments, urban soul, and classic, brass instruments. The fun music is mostly instrumental, but there are instances where some vocals are present. The trippy, dub-ridden music is not too harsh or boring overall. The dubified music is electric, danceable, and perfect for lounging. Despite the short tracklist of only eight songs, Dub To The Bone does not disappoint with light dub inflections and moving rhythms that border on jazzy, afro-beat. Anyone with a jazzy hankering for unique and fresh music from a dub perspective will love the music of Super Hi-Fi’s latest venture. ~ Matthew Forss
