An Addis addition


AFTER last year's surprise success A Town Called Addis, Dub Colossus are back for afters.
In comparison Return To Addis is, er, more of a village, a brief EP made up of two remixes and two new tracks - but it takes a while to settle.
The opener, a Sidestepper remix of Black Rose, quickly passes and then the Cesar Diaz reworking of Sima Edy takes a long time to kick in.
The standard leaps up for the second half of the EP which is made up of two dubs from Dub Colossus, a project begun by Transglobal Underground founding member Nick Page working with Ethiopian musicians.
Here the mixture of dub, reggae, jazz and traditional Ethiopian music that made A Town Called Addis such a smash are in evidence.
As a result, Return To Addis works as a companion to the 2008 release, but I would only recommend it to fans of that album - although judging by its success, that's probably quite a lot of people.
