Dub libraries can be tricky things to get right, and unfortunately, Deep Dub Rising â from the usually excellent Bunker 8 â doesn't get it right at all.
DDR fails to capture the authentic dub sound in the same way that sitting in a shopping trolley fails to capture the excitement of professional Formula One racing.
Many of the sounds are poorly recorded or clipped and the whole vibe is way off â what's with the 'rock' guitars? Whatever this is, it isn't dub, and it's not particularly good, either.
The perfect present for anyone who hates dub, music production in general, and themselves.
