In these days of digital dub, the word "danger" is ill-advised as a modifier. But this New York trio, with their refutation of sampler-based trickery, has indeed captured enough of the scariness of the genre's dark echo chambers to warrant it. Primarily a live band concerned with improvisations, Dub Trio dig into a deep, deep sound that's as solid as it is ephemeral. Unsurprisingly, three of the eight cuts here are live recordings, and it's on those cuts that you can really hear the Trio stretch out (the album closer clocks in at 10-plus minutes and is a storming blend of heaviness and wooziness). Dub Trio's willingness to keep the instrumentation pure – guitar, bass, drums, keys – but the influences open (touches of funk and dance music emerge occasionally) makes this a dangerous record indeed.
