Now this is true dub - bass militancy. There are practically no melodic instruments - wind, string or otherwise - only hard hitting drums, bass lines and beats; for the purist this might be a bit repetitive i.e. lacking a soul. But, bass is a string instrument and if you wish to move a moment, groove another one and shake in the third then here is your album.

Dr Das' work reminds us of what made ADF's hard hitting beats so amazing: a maestro such as him managing the youngsters. Where this album lacks in vocals it makes up in the political anger. I can just imagine Dr Das standing over us, looking at the insanity that exists today and reminding us, the world is in a state of flux so you have to move and dance once in a while.

At the same time one can absolutely imagine a solider entranced with Dub Accelerator while hurtling through one of the many countries at war right now thinking: "anger, militancy, right, wrong...who knows any more." We all respond to world as we see fit and so did Dr. Das.

Play it straight though and project your own beliefs to his beats.
