The World Is Spinning Too Fast

Alright all you crackers and nappy headed hoes, today we got some dubbed out old world monkeez crossed with some cosmic simianz. The whole Laika Come Home (Laika referring to the first bitch in space and “Come Home” referenceing “Lassie, Come Home”) was done by this one off (apparently) dub outfit named Spacemonkeyz. I really don’t have a whole lot of info on these cats. The three members, Darren Galea, Richie Stevens, and Gavin Dodds had other projects. Darren was a DJ named DJ D-Zire (Ooooo, dead sexy name, that is.) Richie was in a group named Well Red (that’s a pun by the way and not mine.) that I have never heard of before, and I have nothing on Gavin. However, the three of them came together for what seems to be one record and made it a banger. Most everyone has heard the Gorillaz or probably at least the Soulchild remix of "19-2000" or Del on "Clint Eastwood." This was nothing like that. This was a really good Dub record. A lot of the tracks are nearly unrecognizable from the original and there’s plenty of repetitive bass line and atmospheric blips and sounds that delay into themselves into infinity. It’s just a relly well done record and if you like dub it’s fire. If you like the Gorillaz, then it isn’t really anything like them in the sense that it isn’t pop but is in the sense that it’s a different take on how music should sound. For me the stand out tracks are probably "Tomorrow Comes Today" and "Punk (De-Punked)" but it really is a solid record. I recommend a hot day, a pitcher of mojitos, and a few fat spliffs. It should all go down quite well.


01 - 19/2000 (Jungle Fresh)
02 - Slow Country (Strictly Rubbadub)
03 - Tomorrow Comes Today (BaƱana Baby)
04 - Man Research (Monkey Racket)
05 - Punk (De-Punked)
06 - 5/4 (P.45)
07 - Starshine (Dub 09)
08 - Soundcheck (Gravity) (Crooked Dub)
09 - New Genius (Brother) (Mutant Genius)
10 - Re-Hash (Come Again)
11 - Clint Eastwood (A Fistful Of Peanuts)
12 - M1A1 (Lil' Dub Chefin')

This is by far the least dubbed out track they have but it was the only video as well.
