Raver Reviews: Tessera Dub by Christos DC (Honest Music) 2017

With Tessera Dub Christos DC (Chris Vrenios) and the Honest Music DC production team have crafted a dub album for the ages – an exceptional set of dub tracks that stand strong in the realm of modern roots and dub reggae.  The album follows Christos’ critically-acclaimed 2017 roots reggae album Tessera, one of the most notable reggae releases of the year.  The dub album features dub mixes from several of today’s most talented dubmixologists including Mad Professor, Laurent “Tippy-I” Alfred of I-Grade Dub, Y&D Dukes, Dub Architect, and Mr. B of Switzerland.

Mad Professor brings the psychedelic on “Pressure Dub,” a far-out, flip-your-lid dub extravaganza.  Mad Professor deconstructs the original album track and reconstructs it Frankenstein-style, going pedal to the floor on the drum and horns tracks.

Laurent “Tippy-I” Alfred of I-Grade Dub puts in the lion’s share of the work on this album with six dub tracks including the timeless “Communion Dub,” on which he showcases Christos’ brilliant guitar work and the blazing horns of the Honest Music players.  Tippy also brings his signature I-Grade dub sound to “What Is Happening Dub” Featuring Akae Beka, “Say What You Want Dub” (which features one of the more memorable bass lines in some time), and “Heart of Gold Dub.”  Fans of Tippy’s style must check these tracks as they are some of the best work he’s done recently and underscore his talents as one of the best producers in the game today.

Switzerland’s Mr. B comes apocalyptic on “Life Dub,” highlighting the organ bubble with echo and atmospheric sound effects.  The album builds from strength to strength, finishing out with Dub Architect’s superb dub of “Righteous Chant” (featuring Christos DC and Don Carlos).

Tessera Dub is an extraordinary modern dub album and a fitting companion for Christos DC’s Tessera set.  Christos DC and Honest Music are not only producing some of the most authentic roots reggae in the world today, they are redefining the sound of an entire musical genre.
