Various Artists Certified Dope Vol. 4: Babylon's Burning
- Words: Daniel Siwek
- Label: WordSound
Proving that there is more to new dub than the "illbient" tag, the Crooklyn Dub Consortium is back with another edition of Certified Dope, and this kouchie is so skank you'll pass-out before passing on de left. They offer a variety of styles, finding the perfect balance between classic and modern sounding plates. From Bill Laswell, who recedes deep into the genre's past (with Augustus Pablo-esque melodica and Sly Dunbar on the kit), to Spectre's frighteningly apocalyptic "Al Quaida," this dub sack is grade A.
