"Fresh from being nominated for “Best Dub Recording Or Album” at the 2008 Reggae Academy Awards in Kingston, Jamaica, Version Big-Fi’s 2nd album Crux Collide Hybridize is now available for download.
This release finds them in a more laid back mood exploring dub, reggae, dubstep & all things downtempo in the 11 tracks ... held together with heavy drums, booming bass and dub echo's to the front..
The band then set about the original tracks to take them even further down the spaced out road and the results can be found on the accompanying dub album Dub Collide Hybridize.
Version Big-Fi - Tone (beats/dubs) and Papa Sparks (bass/samples) - have been honing their radical assault since late 2006. Previously releasing their debut album “Everything But” along with 3 singles and the internationally acclaimed “Blue Monday” dubstep remix on the Dubtronic label, all produced at their own Big-Fi Studios in Reading, UK."

A true celebration of the dub massive, with a sprinkling of roots and plenty of good vibes. I hope you've all got yourselves a subwoofer and some new speakers for xmas because you're going to need them... :)
This one's especially dedicated to all of baroquedub's regular listeners - you know who you are - and with a special shout-out to Robin and Damon (& Christine!) and the mighty Jam Jah Sound, Ian, Nobby and the rest of Munchbreak's extended family (for your friendship and musical inspiration), Lee & Debbie (true artists), Messenger Douglas (this one's your year Dougie), Pecker and Juggla (who keep the good vibes going wherever they party), Jacci (for being such a good friend), and Nigel (still one of the best song writers in the biz... but I do want to hear that electronic album you've been threatening for a few years...), Gez, Steff & Tim and the rest of the Faceshaper family (how long until the new album?!), Alice, Nick and Alfie, Jonny and Geoff and the Eclectic Method (it's been too long guys), Databass Dave (talking of far too long...), and Paul B, and Tone (always an inspiration) and the rest of the friends I never seem to find enough time to be with.
All the best for 2009!"
