Alois Huber and Oh Gee, the Austrian incarnation of Adrian Sherwood? This 10’’ is a good example of the extrapolations possible with dub and dancehall. In 2004, the German band Dub Voyagers recorded the track «So wie du dir das denkst, geht das nicht» (it doesn’t work the way you think). Huber/Oh Geeremixed it, and Sam Gilly (House of Riddim)recorded a version. German lyrics,brass section, relaxed bass runs: The correct sound feed for beach parties between Kingston and St. Pölten. The details show the true significance of this disc: Psychedelic sound experiments are introduced it seems subliminally, the bass booms as though it came from Studio 1. With the Gillyversion, one can detect his partiality for Roots Riddims of the King Tubby or Sly Dunbar brand, the echo chamber is set to lurching basses. While Huber/Oh Gee’s predecessor was mostly indebted to dubstep,this record heads back to dub future. The summer hit of the season.
