A soundtrack to the apocalypse

Darkness. The surrounding trees scatter in the grim night. It’s cold, below zero. Whispering creatures and unidentified shadows screams as they search for their next prey.

I’m walking aimlessly through a desolate landscape. It used to be a highway, now it’s only fragments of asphalt. Ash, leaves and stones cover the ground.

The screams are coming closer. I feel a cold breath in my neck and realize that I cannot run from the destiny that is upon me. This is the final frontier and I’m about to meet my maker. I’m sweating. It’s only minutes, probably only seconds, left.

This is a story that Vibronics latest compilation 12 Months of Dub would be a perfect soundtrack to.

Last year Vibronics decided to enter the new decade with an ambitious release schedule. Twelve limited edition 7” was to be put out – one each month. These releases – that spans over several dub styles – are now collected on the 24 track dub gem 12 Months of Dub, available at e-tailers worldwide.

It’s dark, uncompromising and filled with chilled beats and riddims. Just listen to the apocalyptic To the Fullness or the spooky and lovingly monotonous Teachings.

This album shows just how great desperation and hopelessness can sound.
