For their latest re-release, Japanese Dub Store Records turned their attention to 'Dub Planet Orbit 1', a lesser known album by British band Matumbi that was released in 1980 on their own Extinguish Records label. In the track list six diverse songs, ranging from dubby instrumentals like opener 'Frenz', 'Hearts Of Art' (with a leading role for the trombone of a young Henry 'Matics' Tenyue), or 'Ajali', to the rub-a-dub of 'Afi Laugh', with Ranking Ruben on vocals, and the lovers rock of 'Call Pon I'. Short but excellent release by this iconic British reggae band!
