If nothing else, the Roots of Dub Funk series serves as a useful rejoinder to anyone who dares to argue that reggae has stagnated in recent years. The fact is that while old-school roots reggae is still hugely popular in the U.S. and ragga dancehall is still the drug of choice in Jamaican and British clubs, there are still plenty of new hybrids emerging all the time, and from all kinds of far-flung locations. Witness, for example the bumping reggae en francais of No More Babylon's "Prise d'Assaut Dub," and the insanely funky techno-reggae of Australia's Peyote Sound System, whose "Born African" stutters and stammers and slams away, threatening occasionally to slide off into jungle territory. Then there's the downright avant-garde dub of Piano B, an Italian artist whose "Dub My Roots" dances crazily on just this side of the sonic line separating Lee "Scratch" Perry from Salvador Dali. For those who prefer more old-fashioned flavors, there are Mystic Vibrations with their resolutely skanking "Dub Games" and Sweden's Social Living Sounds with the melodica-driven "Light and Strength." The only thing this very fine album is missing is more information about the bands -- after hearing this dizzying kaleidoscope of reggae sounds, you're going to want to follow up. Strongly recommended. --Rick Anderson
