Every Spoil a Dub
Every Spoil a Dub is all about more of everything good about Dub: More bass, more guitar, more drum, more dramatic mind-bending mixing and sound manipulation. This time around Eating Betty offers a heavier, more analogue sound coupled with more, yes more real playing - more focus on the human factor... This is not to be missed...turn it up and let the walls crumble and the oppressors tumble... In the January 2009 issue of Wire magazine http://www. Thewire. Co.UK/ Steve Barker, the respected Dub music expert wrote: '...in search of that perfect synthesis of Lee Perry and King Tubby meeting again in the studio five years after Blackboard Jungle in Dub his downtown New York based ACEtone studio set up is dedicated to analogue confessions dubstyle, real instrumentation and samples confined to vocal ghosts. The rhythms on the first four dubs here all have that pre-Black Ark late-Upsetters feel, but the mix is swooning with efx, especially the appearance of Marcus Garvey on opener 'Disunity Dub' and the refreshing acoustic guitars on 'Cyaan get no dub'; then by the time the title track appears things start to get more weirder and the mixing more abstract with the steps back through the tune difficult to trace, fierce overlapping percussion and giant reverbed rimshots taking the tune out. Overall an excellent third album, but the top track is definitely 'New New Dub' sounding like a ouija board studio collaboration with Joe Meek, opening with an irresistible, but rarely used, mix of piano and organ keys separating out after the intro but continuing to vamp and submitting to dub efx through the rhythm...' Longtime loyal fan and Dub afficionado Cornelius says: 'I've consumed all tracks from Every Spoil a Dub. Assessment.....SUPERIOR!!'
