about

The Swiss musicians bow down low
before
Space Rock, but without
bypassing pure DUB. Their new
release shines with a precision that
demands they be named in the
same breath as the watches
Switzerland is famed for.
Swiss
timepieces are renowned for
their precision, and they tick along
nicely even under water. The
mechanics, the cogs, the striking
mechanism, the chronograph
movements, the repeaters, the
speed-up.... The fact that the
cantons of this maximum-precision
country should produce ultra-chilled
SLO MO Dub like this, a style that
has avid fans all over the world, is
something we have DUB SPENCER
& TRANCE HILL to thank for. The
band are known for the formidable interior dynamism of their composition skills, their classic
riddim craftsmanship, the psychedelic sound of their guitars, the pounding bass lines that
approach infrasound levels, the space sounds and their grandiose sound dimensions. This is
dub as dub can.
Like few
other electronically influenced styles, over the years DUB has shown itself
impervious and resistant to all manner of short-lived trends. Like Bud Spencer recently
laconically stated in one of his rare interviews: “DUB makes the difference.” There are
probably few people who – regardless of which music ghetto they inhabit – have not
encountered DUB at some point.
On the new a
lbum DEEP DIVE DUB the band dives deeper than Jaques Piccard’s team
during their record-breaking dive in Trieste in the sixties. The focus of this repetition is the
fusion of reggae, even though, instead of the lightness that is usually inherent in reggae, the
album focuses on heavy grooves, grooves that drift off into fat, dark, mature places. With a
hypnotic power, the musicians – all of whom are trained jazz instrumentalists – dive into a
world of Space-Rock-Dub-Electro. On a couple of the tracks the band invited the Lucerne-
based experimental vocalist Bruno Amstad (who has previously worked with John Zorn and
Phil Minton) to contribute.
Neither a slave to the great Jamaican heroes of the seventies nor lost in the great wide world
of electronic dub
– DUB SPENCER & TRANCE HILL tread their own path, reducing and
abstracting as they dive deeper and deeper.
Irony is the sword of the disenfranchised... and so DUB SPENCER & TRANCE HILL
will
continue to roll on – like the film duo they borrowed their name from – over the sliders and
knobs of the mixing desks of this world!
