Last years System Shakedown handed over to some of the reggae world's most talented remixers/producers.

Sampler

As you will have already gathered from the title this album sees last years superb 'System Shakedown' handed over to some of the world’s most talented remixers/producers, namely Zion Train, G.Corp, Marcus Visionary, Liondub, Vibronics, Victor Rice, Duibvisionist, Mungo’s Hi-Fi, Aldubb, Nate Wize, TVS, Subatomic Soundsystem, Webcam Hi-Fi, DJ Shine, Eccodek and last but not least DJ Brace… phew that’s quite a list.

Clash Of The TitansAccording to Dubmatix this project was originally only going to be a single 12” vinyl release, but with so many great remixes coming in the material was considered too good to waste and so it has now expanded to this, CD and digital release plus a limited, to 500 copies, double 12” gatefold vinyl release and I for one am grateful for this as what we have here is a very diverse and interesting take on what was already some quality cuts which have had new and exciting life breathed in to them. Thankfully as well with such great vocalists as The Mighty Diamonds, Tippa Irie, Dennis Alcapone, Kulcha Ites, Jay Douglas, The Ragga Twins, Ammoye, Brother Culture and U-Brown many of the remixes have retained the vocal parts which has only gone to embellish and enrich the futuristic sounds and vibes that have been created and touch on traditional deep and rootsy dubs, hot steppers, dubstep, ragga, jungle, future dub and in the case of Eccodek's Mali to Mumbai Remix of Wobble Weeble stripped back funky touches on a hip hop beat with north African slants!

If you enjoyed 'System Breakdown' you’ll very much enjoy this and if you didn’t you should still check it out as some of the remixes, like Mungo's Hi Fi’s bass shuddering, spacey, minimal take on Gun Down which featured The Ragga Twins, are totally unrecognizable from the original and if that version doesn’t do it for you there are two more unique versions of that cut alone for you to try.

As usual with Dubmatix production is crisp and clean with deep bass tones helping to make this one clash where everybody wins.
