Various Artists World Dub Pastry
- Words: Derek Beres
- Label: Music for Dreams
Focused on the obscure (but growing) Balearic dub scene, label head Kenneth Bager drops this compilation from his record bag goody list. A mish-mash of tech-heavy minimalist electronica dosed with videogame worthy bleeps, the vision is a dreamscape filled with world dub influences. Overall, the comp is a mixed bag, with repetitively mediocre cuts alongside solid tracks from 2 Raumwohnung, Banzai Republic and Tomzen. The highlight is Joe Dukie & DJ Fitchie refreaking their incredible live outfit, Fat Freddy‘s Drop, from organic Rastafarianism into digital Nyabhingi.
