Dub Mentor’s warm, peeled-down arrangements, comprised of loping drum loops, chocolatey bass and treated field recordings for texture, lend these tunes the intimacy of late-evening jazz. (Igloo Magazine)
Unspectacularity is his secret; whether electronic or man-made, each sound is separated from the next with precision, allowing resonant voices and instruments to focus our minds... Passion through restraint…
Dub Mentor makes a bold 21st century musical statement with 'Versions'.

…conscious left-field dub-inflected pop music… imagine a fusion of folk vocalists with a hybrid production of Massive Attack and Bill Laswell…
