Even the most perfectly captured recording belies the true spirit of dub reggae. Fact is, the improvisational psychedelic nature of the music is best experienced 10 feet from a massive subwoofer, enveloped in clouds of aromatic greenery. NYC’s Subatomic Sound System knows this well, and while they may ply their trade in an assortment of reggae, hip-hop, broken beat, and jungle tracks, each is approached with a maverick, dub-wise sensibility that shouts a clear music-first missive to the masses. The band delivers as advertised, hitting you thoroughly on all frequencies.
