As the title and the release artwork suggest, "Back To My Roots" sees producer/MC dynamo Cotti revisit the original essence of dub reggae while adding his own sabre-toothed technique and vocals. Highlights include the spiked out midrange riff on "Babylon Trial" which suddenly switches to harmonised sunshine skankage, the psychedelic melodic flourishes on "Cool Down" and the emotional synth horn blasts on "Stay Cool". A unique package; each one of these cuts resonates with bonafide authenticity, acting as a mighty one-fingered salute to any dub critics lingering in the shadows. QUOTE FROM JUNODOWNLOAD.COM
