Dubtribe Sound System Baggage
- Words: Stacy Meyn
- Label: Imperial Dub
Since 1991, after booting their DJ, SF deep housers Dubtribe Sound System (husband Sunshine/wife Moonbeam Jones) mixed up house and dub-chilled, not stirred. A proudly viable live band, DSS also pumped out a plethora of dancefloor luvin‘ twelvers and now have Baggage. No samplers were harmed during the recording-it‘s hyperreal in both instrumentation and topic. Titles "Shakertrance," "Raggatronique," "The "Rhythm In Your Mind," "Lo Disco," and "Do It Now" appear fluffy and the tracks do bounce, but a deeper dig into the bag o‘ tunes reveals concern for today‘s house music. Baggage warns us to keep up with the Joneses.
