DARKWOOD DUB - "U NEDOGLED" (1996)

Today Darkwood Dub is one of the prominent bands in the Balkan indie-rock scene, but it hasn't always been this way. Their affirmation is the result of a long process, which started with the Yugoslav war and endured to the very end of it. During the conflict, the band encountered difficulties in both distributing records and performing live.

The debut album, "Paramparčad", was recorded in 1992-93, but released only in 1995. It was a strange record, heavily influenced by funk and dub music. Anyway, a poor sound quality and some monotonous guitar-driven arrangements penalized it a bit. It was only with this second studio effort that the band finally revealed its true value. 

While the mix between indie-rock, funk and dub remains the main key of their music, the album is full of keyboards, samples, and scratch tricks, making it one of the most exciting hybrids between guitar music and electronic sounds in that golden age known as the Nineties.
