Australian release, the first selection of Reggae, Soul and Dub from the annual Island Vibe festival on Stradbroke Island. This much loved compilation has a smooth and mellow texture, bearing the distinctive 'space echo' sound of producer Paulie B. Opening strongly with 'The Grass is Greener' by Brisbane's Dub specialist Drew-id, the pace is stepped up by Dubdoubt's classic 'Lack of Inspiration' and then steadied by the solid groove of 'Here, Swing, Sing' by Kooii. Other stand out tracks include the rare Dub remake of the Dynamic Thrills hit 'It Ruff' and 'Ultra Magnetic' by Melbourne's dub juggernaughts the Red Eyes. Island Time 1 is a must have for any serious collector of Australian Reggae and Dub. Rudekat.
