FreeDubFlow is a trip -- starting you out in one place and delivering you somewhere else entirely -- but it's also a manifesto on the uses of chill, the offer of a pleasant place to wait out the more chaotic traffic of club music … it's a caressing wave of pure downtempo that begins to darken with Naomi's Syndicate … and then expands spatially via the Tricky Cris and Deadbeats dub tracks that follow.
By the time we get to dZihan & Kamien's Smile, and then to the Riccardo Eberspacher track that follows, the more melodic part of the set has started to be evident, and that soaring sensation takes over. This lush flow will eventually resolve into Tony Rich's earthier track, Leavin'. But we're not there yet … first, there's Sade. The song "Flow" from her 2000 release Lovers Rock is a minor masterpiece, as I now understand (though I missed that fact when the track was new to me, admittedly) … it was a joy to be reminded of this older track.
But so what's in it for you? Hmmm ... well, I'm simply here to remind you about the joys of just hangin' out, lettin' go of all that high-performance, top-achiever, multi-tasking stuff ... switching off some of that constantly-on equipment you've got, seeing if you can't switch on some of that other equipment instead -- the stuff that may have been off for longer than you intended ... see how it is if you just turn out the lights and leave the music playing ... just for a little while.
