After the release of their widely acclaimed debut album ‘On The Grove’ in March, Soul Revivers return with a dub version of the record: ‘Grove Dub’ out 14 October, 2022.
An ambitious and collaborative project from Nick Manasseh and David Hill, ‘On The Grove’ brought together musicians from across the decades, and saw Jamaican legends play alongside hot young musical talent from London.
Following the incredible reaction to the album, David and Nick re-entered the Yard Studios and set to work on creating an alternative dub version. The resultant Grove Dub reworks eight of the original 12 tracks, seeking to highlight different elements, to create these brilliant dub mixes. Nick then created an extreme soundscape by adding different elements to each track, all mixed live ‘on-the-board’ (on the mixing desk), by hand, old-school style. In his words, ‘Dub should represent a moment in time which reflects your feelings about the track in that instant. This way the dub will be done by the time the tune has run… 3 minutes 30 seconds, you’ve got a dub!’.
The result has already been met with high praise.
“Grove Dub is an outstanding dub album, a natural progression from the original On The Grove set, with ace engineer and producer Nick Manasseh tucking into some ultra-cool sonic vibrations.” – David Rodigan, BBC 1Xtra
They lead with ‘More Drama’, featuring Ernest Ranglin, out now as a single on all streaming platforms.
