Audioweb return to the live scene, armed with their first new music in 23 years.
‘King’ was released to the world on Sept 24th, gaining national radio play on BBC 6 Music.
It’s a masterclass in solid production, a heavy dose of dub reggae with drums that explode in your ears, an echoing bassline that floats around your head and tickles the senses, overlaid with trumpets skipping in and out and a subtle guitar lick adding to the whole infrastructure. The floating dub effects spin around your headphones like you’re in an echo chamber. Sugar’s vocals are as strong as ever and I can’t say he’s back on form because he was never off it.
A welcome return and a taster of what’s to come. They don’t stray away from their original sound yet this sounds like a rebirth of sorts as the production is solid gold and sounds like it’s been produced by Tosh or Perry in a state of the art studio. It’s been a long time coming but this is probably the best period to get out there and show the new school how it’s done in the world of dub reggae / rock, soul and funk.
