and Omega can be considered among the
leading figures of the now generation of Dub
creators. King Tubby, unfortunatly he left
us, has discovered dub, and passed it on to
his protegee, Prince (now King) Jammy.
Scientist and Mad Professor made the vibe
gone even more mad, and now we have Jah
Warrior, Rootsman, The Revolutionairy Dub
Warriors, Messian Dread and Alpha And
This duo, consisting of a female bass
player and a male drummer do everything
themselves. Playing, mixing. Although they
have released several albums, this is their
first international release with a 15 track
selection of their earlier work and some
previously unreleased. The nice thing is
that all the tracks are re-mixed especially
for this compilation.
This album is a good representation of
the early work of Alpha and Omega. It will
give you a chance to dig their sound to the
fulness. Because there is a typical Alpha
and Omega sound for sure. The sistren lays
some down some heavy monotonic and hypnotic
basslines, where the brethren puts down some
heavy steppers and two drop rhythms.
Think over this a melodica and spaced out
echo's and you have pretty much the sound of
Alpha and Omega.
