Re visit A Different World


The majority of the tracks on this compilation were big download hits in the early 00s at the original website. They also appeared on the three Mind's Eye Dub albums for 'Mind's Eye', 'Mystic' and 'De Jah Vu'. We are treated with several unforgettable melodies here, most of them played on the melodica: timeless, majestic, reggae instrumentals recorded on a Fostex cassette portastudio!

All these tunes were played during Manwel Tabone's Reggae Club show on Radio Malta. Two dub plates mixed especially for that programme, plus a vocal contribution from the great MC Trooper that was recorded live during the Dread Connexion show, are released for the first time on this album. Dread Connexion was a Sunday night live internet show originating from England, and MC Trooper was the resident toaster there. 'Nuff Respect' was recorded over the internet, so recording quality is not perfect, but the track is a scorcher! Nuff vibes and energy on this one! was one of the first places on the net that offered free legal downloads and it helped many artists to establish themselves beyond the boundaries of their countries of origin. The tracks on this set introduced Mind's Eye Dub to the international reggae fans. This is a reintroduction, and a nostalgic trip for old Mind's Eye Dub,Reggae Club, and Dread Connexion fans! Go deh!
