Reminiscence reviewed on ReggaeVibes Magazine

Reminiscence reviewed on ReggaeVibes Magazine. Thanks to the crew and of course Mr.T !


Most likely hardcore dubheads and regular visitors of sound system events will be familiar with music produced and put out by London-based record label Alchemy Dubs. However, due to the constant stream of releases coming from the four corners of the world, it’s almost inevitable that there’s definitely a group of fans of reggae and dub music who have never heard of the label and its production work. Until now, we also belonged to those who are unaware of Alchemy Dubs’ existence.


Towards the end of 2017, Alchemy Dubs’ latest release saw the light of day. Like on their previous releases, it’s the tasty sound of the melodica (played by regular collaborator Nik Torp on the two opening tracks) that plays an important role on their second vinyl-only release on 12″ format entitled “Reminiscence”. When the needle drops and the first tones leap off the speakers, it’s instantly clear that this instrumental is tailor-made for playing loud on a custom-built sound system. “Reminiscence” is a meditational UK Steppers, which without any doubt will excite everyone who hears this tune in a roots dance. The instrumental is a mix of programmed and real instruments, with Nik Torp’s melodica play adding a real nice and lovely touch. The two different dub versions really give your speakers a workout. On the other side the listener is treated to the simply beautiful “Anamnesis”, which features sounds from the N’goni (a West African string instrument) alongside Nik Torp’s melodica, synths, drum machines and some North African percussion. The straight-forward instrumental and both dub versions are astonishing as well as mind-blowing offerings, which even after repeated listenings leave the listener awestruck.
