Title: Reflections aka
Genre(s): Downtempo / Ambient Dub
Label: Renegade Recordings
Release Date: July 25 2020
Over the years, Dubmatix has explored the many genres and sub-genres that embody hypnotic grooves - be it dub, jungle, hiphop triphop, dubstep and more. "Reflections aka" is a moody downtempo ambient dub vibe that is a bookend of sorts to the Juno-award winning album Sly & Robbie meets Dubmatix "Overdubbed" and the track "Great Escape", which we've included here as well.
"Reflections aka" radiates that deep subby hypnotic downtempo ambient sound of rich analog synths, stripped-down programmed drums alongside live drums that are reminiscent of Led Zeppelin's classic "When The Levee Breaks". Like being inside a vortex of lush reverb, swirling echoes and rattling deep bass.
