Lyman Zerga Does what it says on the tin: a properly dubbed-up version of the original album, and much the better for it. The hackneyed eastern touches, that have become something a tired trope in this field over the years, are toned down, replaced by expertly deployed stabs, echo, delay and dub touches that Gaudi proves himself to be supremely talented at. Glorious.

Dub, Sweat & Tears is Gaudi 15th album, a commemorative “dub release”” to mark the 10th anniversary of his groundbreaking album Bass, Sweat & Tears, released in 2004 by Interchill Records. Still the label’s best-selling release, it has reached the n.2 on iTunes European chart, the n.14 in the USA, appeared on 80 compilations and 4 movies worldwide.
An organic fusion of reggae, nu-beat and global influences inspired by native cultures from around the world, taking the listener to a journey from Burkina Faso to Iran, from Pakistan to India, to Papua New Guinea, Jamaica, Spain, Italy, working with an astonishing 42 musicians from all over the globe, each bringing a special flavor to the project's stew.
It received a massive acclaim from the press, fans and fellow artists alike, with Massive Attack and Pete Namlook declaring it an "awesome album with excellent production".

In Dub, Sweat & Tears Gaudi reshaped his ten years old original tracks using only and rigorously analogue studio equipment such as tape echoes, spring reverbs, valve compressors, a production technique that helped him to create a completely new sonic experience, pointing out all the obscured details, the most minute percussive rings and beeps and the most mesmerizing basslines.

Whether it is the timeless classic sounds of the original Bass, Sweat & Tears, which still sounds brand new and fresh these ten years down the line, or the newly dubbed companion release Dub, Sweat & Tears, this music proves that Gaudi remains one of Electronic music's most unique and innovative producers, a man who is justifiably proud of his past, while continuing to blaze new trails into the future.
