Synopsis

Album Description
San Francisco?s finest West Coast deep groovers dubtribe sound system return, delivering a journey of deep, soulful, chilled house. After a stream of records covering subjects ranging from ecology (the Chemical Brothers' Heavenly Social classic 'Mother Earth') to their lives as committed clubbers, dubtribe sound system have built up a army of fanatical followers throughout America. During a hiatus after the success of their last album, 1999?s Bryant Street, Sunshine and Moonbeam Jones redefined their sound in 2001 with a limited edition vinyl 12" of 'Do It Now', on their own imperialDUB label ? a record that made the rest of the world sit up and take notice. Baggage is a real journey through the elements of house. From the funky groove of ?Shakertrance? to the deep lush melodies and sweet vocals of ?Autosoul? to the finale, ?Do It Now?, which slowly builds sliding from dubbed out disco to a truly uplifting lullaby. Laid back piano interludes, a hazy, lazy disco vibe with vocals that gently soothe and seduce. Baggage transports you to a warm, breezy and beautiful place of your choosing and captures the essence of the season to the point of perfection.

CD Reviews

A collection of relaxed house music
cosmokane31 | San Francisco, CA United States | 05/09/2005
(4 out of 5 stars)

""How is house music relevant today?" So begins the press kit to Dubtribe Sound System's "Baggage." Instead of the usual "this band rocks" fluff, the kit contains an impassioned history of the group, complete with philosophies behind the music. Such handwringing seems more the province of pedantic hip hop bloggers, rather than purveyors of warm, organic house music.

Thankfully, Dubtribe has not let existential doubt get in the way of making good music. "Baggage" is a collection of relaxed house music, paced like a DJ set; each song flows seamlessly into the next, simulating the legendary Dubtribe live experience. Highlights include the bassline-driven "Nothing is Impossible" and the epic "Do It Now," the disco song to end all disco songs."
