4 Dub Vibes is a collective of producers and selectors from Larisa, a city in the central part of Greece, presenting a first self-produced EP. 'This Is Not A War' opens with 'Where Goes The Nation', a disco mix (vocal cut + dub) for which the collective invited French-Senegalese vocalist Sir Jean, who recently also appeared on Maïs & Sin's 'Virtual Lines'. But the absolute highlight on the EP is title track 'This Is Not A War', in which fragments from a 2009 speech by journalist, author, activist and clergyman Chris Hedges about the situation in Gaza can be heard: "The Israeli decision to rain death and destruction on Gaza, to use the lethal weapons of the modern battlefield on a largely defenceless civilian population, is the final phase of the decades-long campaign to ethnically cleanse Palestinians."; a tune that couldn't have been released at a better time! Excellent Greek dub with a conscience!
