Various Artists New Zealand in Dub
- Words: Max Herman
- Label: Echo Beach
These are the sounds of paradise. On this nearly 80-minute compilation, some of New Zealand‘s top instrumentalists show us how they seamlessly meld elements of reggae, downbeat, trip-hop, and more to deliver an entirely fresh take on dub-straight out of one of the southernmost countries on the planet. Surely the lush and remote NZ environment helped inspire the inherent tranquility of these selections. And amid the chill vibe of these instrumentals, the occasional use of vocals (on "Politician," for example) proves that these sharp New Zealanders are far from being socially unaware.
