This is the first release on Terra Incognita Recordings from dubwise producer Mikuś. His trademark sound tends to mix grainy vintage distortion with modern production styles, all rounded off with an eastern twist.
Brass Islands of Dub explores slightly different territory, primarily thanks to the trumpet and flugelhorn talents of Kevin Robinson (Jazz Jamaica All-Stars/Jazz Warrior/Incognito), who features prominently on all the tracks. Kevin’s horn parts bring an additional degree of melody in comparison to Mikuś’ other releases, with tracks such as Isla de la Juventud touching on Cuban musical traditions, whilst Highlands pays homage to the golden age of the Jamaican dub era.
Released simultaneously with ‘Brass Islands of Dub’ is another EP from Mikuś, ‘Remembrance Dubs’, dedicated to his friends and relatives who recently died. ‘Remembrance Dubs’ is available on a free download from Planet Terror Records by clicking here.
