The debut release by dr trippy is a riot of musical flavours, described by its creator as Punjabi Swamp Music!
Sounding like a clash between India and Jamaica at an English festival, the album is underpinned by the rhythms and resonance of dub, awash in Indian vocals and fuelled by a battery of synthesisers and effect units. Add to this several seasons in Goa, live shows at a bevvy of festivals and the tutelage of Banco De Gaia, and you have the perfect ingredients for an ‘Invasion by Osmosis’!
Standout tracks include the irrepressible ‘Welcome to Babylon’, the dhol driven ‘Bollywood Boulevard’ and the deliciously deep ‘Lonely sound of Dub’.
