|This third Ashley album is a good demonstration of the artist's progress as composer, musician, and dub mixer in these last twelve months or so. The usual Ashley elements are present: steady drum and bass with rather elaborate arrangements on top; but somehow, this set sounds more musical than the previous ones.
The overall mood is also darker, a true reflection of the troubled times that the world is going through! This is not sunny happy-go-lucky reggae, this is pretty serious stuff!
Great works have always been produced during hard times. 'Tribulation In Dub' has 2012 written all over it! Heavy uncompromising UK dub - the sound of now!
