Tedium Swing – Reflection

[WAC07]

Tedium Swing

“Reflection”

Tedium Swing adalah keisengan dari Zainal Arifin yang ingin tetap produktif di waktu luangnya. Tedium Swing memainkan musik lo-fi, atau swing, dan juga chillhop. Tak disangka keisengannya membuat musik sejak Juli 2017 hingga jadilah 18 lagu yang ia kemas dalam “Reflection”.

Jogja beberapa hari ini diguyur hujan tanpa ampun dari pagi hingga pagi keesokannya. Bahkan tidak memberikan jeda untuk sekedar menjemur pakaian; tidak memberikan kesempatan untuk berjalan ke warung burjo yang jaraknya hanya beberapa meter saja dari rumah tanpa kebasahan. Tapi kawan..masih ada payung jika tidak mau kebasahan. Atau kalau tidak mau basah-basah kehujanan kalian bisa hanya berdiam diri di rumah dan mendengarkan “Reflection”. Coba rasakan ‘percakapan ombak’ atau ‘reflection’ atau ‘saturdate’ yang kelabu. Atau track ‘doa minggu pagi’ dengan suara-suara oldiesnya membuat ingin bernostalgia.

Foshan Roots – Sky Warrior Dub

[DPH033]

Foshan Roots

“Sky Warrior Dub”

We are starting a new series of releases, exploring and re-discovering Springline Records, one of the most underrated reggae and dub labels. It has been operational from 2003 until 2012, releasing music on vinyl, on audio tapes and later in digital format. With artists coming mainly coming from the UK underground, the style of the label was strongly influenced by the Jamaican roots music of the 70s with a sound very kin to that of Lee ‘Scratch’ Perry’s Black Ark studio.

But the resemblance to Black Ark studio goes far more than just the sound and the music. After 10 years of operation, two vinyl releases and many tapes and digital releases the label stopped its operations. All releases were discontinued in 2013 & all master recordings were lost or destroyed or on purpose deleted/thrown away, with the owner of the label deciding to put an end to that musical adventure. What is left nowadays are some articles and reviews on the internet, reminding the era of a great label, which unfortunately did not get the recognition it deserved.

All this happened at the time when Dubophonic was just starting its own musical adventure in 2013. We don’t know if it was meant to be, if a higher force controls everything and connects everything together, but thanks to Gibsy Rhodes, owner of Springline Records, we got our hands on some crucial tunes found forgotten on a hard disc, which was saved from destruction. Ruff takes, dubplates, alternative cuts, demos and a few unreleased works; a true treasure to our ears!

From our new series entitled The lost archive of Springline Records comes Sky Warrior Dub. It was never released before, until today! Foshan Roots was formed as a studio band by Thomas Dewey and Brad Turner in the summer of 2012 in the UK, working together on various projects (Roots, Reggae, Dub). Being able to establish a great connection and to overstand each other telepathically, the musical workings just started flowing. The name of their band reflects the vibes of their music.

All recordings & mixes were done in their own studio (CAF Studios) named after a very inspirational roots album. Brad & Tom play all the instruments themselves, shared out equally, so to give a different feel each time. Sky Warrior Dub consists of nine dubwise tracks in a deep rootikal style, reflecting the mystical vibes of the band! Welcome to Foshan Roots, the peaceful ZEN-warriors. Enjoy the journey to Jah music!

Fingerflood – Beats And Stabs And Kick In Four

[SCM-1703]

Fingerflood

“Beats And Stabs And Kick In Four”

Fingerflood is an electronic music project born as a part of the many musical extensions of Gaetano Fontanazza.

What we have in this debut release, named “Beats and Stabs and Kick in Four,” is the strong intent to basically dive into the fat obscure electronic moods of dub techno, somehow near to the Berlin scene if you like. The release has an ideal split in the middle of its playlist, switching from dub techno to more dub idm-oriented tracks.

Rich Sudney – Parading Out The Devil

[DF-3]

Rich Sudney

“Parading Out The Devil”

He who is in his late thirties, stares out into the open vast waters of northern lake Michigan. Blue sky above him reminds him of past wilderness adventures, hiking, camping, enjoying the company of no-one else but his solitude. As the ferry boat rocks ever so gently with each wave, his stare becomes hypnotic in the anticipation of traveling to a different world then he’s used to. From the cluttered exhausted saturated air of the motor city to the crisp clean everything of those islands in the middle of this lake. Traveling on a whim, spontaneous plans of going to meet and shake hands with his fears are all in the back of his mind. “You can plan for everything under the sun. But you’ll never plan for that banana peel you’ll slip on” he recalls from reading mystic literature. “I know I’ll make it” saying to himself in a reassuring vibe. Carefully planning every spot, step and strategy to get to a small island by kayak for months now. “Just remember the banana peel!”

Akusmatic – Expect no Ratio


O.L.M. – Book of Daniel

[DPH032]

O.L.M.

“Book of Daniel”

It was around 2,600 years ago when a Judean teenager was taken captive by the rapidly ascending Babylonian Empire, a force of unstoppable military strength, great wealth and technological advancement. Normally such an event would lead to a life in misery as a slave … but God had something else in mind for this young man named Daniel.

Daniel, The teenager who had been taken captive, came to realize that God was miraculously working with him … but not only to preserve his life. God was revealing through him some major prophecies of future world-ruling empires. As a resident of the world’s premier capital city and AS an honored wise man in King Nebuchadnezzar’s court, Daniel demonstrated God’s superiority over the pagan gods of Babylon and left a legacy of faithful obedience to God in spite of grave trials and tribulations.

Inspired by the Old Testament book, Italian producer Orlando La Montagna adapts the story of Daniel and transforms it into a dub adventure, introducing different variations of the same riddim just like the different chapters of the book. Each track has a deep spiritual ambience; starting with “Induction in Babylon” where Daniel is introduced in the hard Babylonian system through a stepper-techno beat and ending with “Life Giver”, which sends the final message to our permissive society of power-hungry people … to a nation without God. Daniel’s situation in Babylon sounds quite a bit like our own, doesn’t it?

Circa State

“Homegrown”

A new artist comes to Kahvi now, Circa State appeared in my inbox recently with a nice chilled selection in the form of a demo which grabbed my attention from the start. A blend of ambient and emotional sounds, with more acoustic inspired elements, taking you on a journey through a summer field with the grass sweeping in the breeze. RnB beats threaten to blow away the gentle vibes, but never too overpowering.

A great introduction to the hot summer months by Circa State.

C_C – Impendulo

[D!HR-34]

C_C

“Impendulo”

For its 34th release, Da ! Heard It Records is warming up the machines to trace some new paths.
Impendulo is C_C’s new cassette.
Packaged in quasi-monochrome illustrations with quasi-absurd architectural tendencies, the visuals emphasize the kinetic art and foreshadow what one is about to hear: chain reactions and strange angles; it all moves and it all hits.
This cassette is an absolute beat garage!
Think of a little place where things are done by hand, geared towards total customization, fine-tuning; truly without concession and C_C is the boss. He’s the one with his nose under the hood and adjusting everything by ear. In total contrast with factory and chain-work sound, C_C knows how to use a system as Low-Cost as Low-Fi. Not afraid of getting his hands dirty!
The electronic sound is played from the fingertips, and it’s audible: the patterns aren’t dull and the rhythms brilliant.
It also plays with codes, and plays with them in a laid-back way, arm hanging out the window, headlights fully on. It advances tirelessly, entertaining without using, definitely more auto-reverse than auto-stop. Natural born bottom-of-time, C_C plays it in four-wheel drive, for all terrains, and completely versatile in all respects. He alternates straight hitting lines, feedback turns, and reverb drifts, and allows himself to ride right in the middle, his kick as pressed as the pedal, larsen melodies comfortably settled in the backseat.
At full speed, it’s blinking from all sides, counterpoint at every corner. With always one ear on the rearview mirror, and the GPS evidently out of order… drifting away from the roots is inevitable. In Impendulo, one is thus neither here nor there, but rather on unknown territory with no markers, never safe, but always sound. Welcome to the fourth (rid)dimension, this four-track game that summons hormones and neurons, active listening, and active dancing.
The drum is electronic and its skin is unbreakable, and in a thousand miles, it will still be playing, unfettered. One hit up, one hit down, the rhythmics spar without any low hits and most importantly without the rotundity that fishing for sound can bring. With C_C, it’s refined and chiseled by ear on the mixing side. The composition is stripped of anything superfluous, reduced to the bones, and you feel it in your bones: trans, love it or leave it.

Negritage – Greetings from planet Dub

[DPH031]

Negritage

“Greetings from planet Dub”

Four years ago, back in 2013, the Argentinian dubbers Negritage made their first appearance on the label with Guetto Roots of Dub Vol. 1, an album recorded in “Cuca Roots” and in “El Fuerte Dub Foundation” studios, exploring the Jamaican roots and culture dub tradition. Their analogue style and their authentic sound was greatly appreciated by the listeners and the album remains until today the most downloaded release ever made by Dubophonic, with more than 25.000 downloads and still rising.

Fast forward today and the long awaited Vol. 2 is finally out. “Greetings from Planet Dub” stays true to the same roots and culture background with 6 vocal tracks and 11 dubs. Nevertheless new elements are incorporated in their style, in which eastern melodies blend into the Jamaican vibes and the melodica meets the mandolin and the lyre like in a musical playground, were the singers and players of instruments playfully communicate through their music.

Big up all the artists from all four corners of the world, who collaborated with Negritage and made this release possible: the original roots defender dub activist Jam York (USA), the mighty Sammy Gold (UK), the wise Ibel Campbell (JAM) delivering solid and conscious messages, the dub poet and writer Haji Mike (CY), the studio wizard and dub creator Med Dred (CY), sister Yuuri Bamboo (JPN) blazing those melodica vibes, Christina Polycarpou (CY) doing her magic on the lyre, the humble Mandlion (ITA), flute master Eter Dub (ARG) and the lyrical messenger Zion Irie (FR). All tracks mixed by Negritage in Argentina and mastered by Med Dred in Cyprus. Cover artwork by Negritage. Distributed by Dubophonic for free download.

No Finger Nails – Quipu Remixes

[DPH030]

No Finger Nails

“Quipu Remixes”

A “quipu”, was a method used by the Incas and other ancient Andean cultures to keep records and communicate information. In the ancient Quechua language of the Andes, “quipu” means “knot”. A Quipu is in fact a set of knotted loops, tied by a thicker rope supporting them.

Quipu is also a project created by Atome Primitf, a collective of musicians and “dreamers” from Europe, a project inspired by that same method of knots, stringing artistic ties and new collaborations, through cross-genre musical interpretations and audio-visual concepts.

In fact Quipu was born as an audio-visual concept. The four tracks of the EP started as original compositions of Atome Primitif, with the elements of voice, violin and acoustic guitar modeling an unplugged sound. Quipu traveled all around Europe, involving artists from different countries, each one adding their own personal knot, inspired by the compositions of Clelia Patrono.

Andrea Presicce aka No Finger Nails adds his own musical knot through his musical experience, ranging from Electronica to Dub. The EP consists of four remixed tracks, offering a very dub-ambient and mystical alternative, using the original organic sounds. The project expands also audio-visually, with videos and visuals being produced, on that same quipu idea. Dubophonic is very proud and honored to be part of this, tying its own knot in this continuously evolving project!

Downbeat – Introspección

[DPH029]

Downbeat

“Introspección”

Downbeat is a project that mutates, changes with the time, transforms itself with life, without limits and without borders. Their second album takes the sound a step further towards experimentation. Downbeat look at their interior and connect themselves with genres they always got inspired from: Dub, Dubtronica, Jazz and Fusion.

“Introspección” is the beating of their heart, each heartbeat navigated by a different state of mind. Looking at oneself is like a magical journey within, guided by the mystical power of the ancestral plants.

The dub sounds are present throughout the album with atmospheric musical landscapes. This is not the typical dub album, trying to look like its coming out from an island … this is the dub of the mountain … the dub of the Andes … the dub of the Aconcagua … the dub of Las Heras. That’s why it’s hard, dark, cold and different. That is why it has power, hypnotism, strength and a sound of its own.

Let us navigate within ourselves, with the heart pulsating on each beat. Heavy Dub, experimental Dub, dedicated to the universe and its infinite power. A triangle for all to travel (SOUND-LIGHT-SHAPE)!

Rich Sudney – 4 am

[DF-2]

Rich Sudney

“4 am”

The silent world of night beholds the bearers of the slumbering animals. As most of them meditate collectively in alterative realities guided by deep thought, a few of us work the midnight oil till the dawn hour where by the rising Taurus believes all was a dream. Restless and weary, the hours after 4 am calls the end of our nightly duty. No one sees nor can relate to works of hands on the floors of reality as many forgets day’s past events in love, anger or neutrality. These streets empty, dark, and sometimes inhabitant by floating spirits conversing with cold sub zero winds, are gently painted in white light equally erased by deep darkness. Store front buildings undercover by this darkness are reveled by second floor apartment lights, assuring their vacantness to the world. Silhouettes in the windows, we can only hope there living. Silhouettes in the windows, living is our only hope

Dubrajah

“Reprise”

Our first release of 2017 and the second one on the label by the Russian social anthropologist and ethnomusicologist Sergey Gabbasov and his project Dubrajah is coming your way. You already know his release from year 2014 entitled “Enkang”, though which we discovered the artist’s ability to fuse a deep digital dub style with organic sounds, traditional African melodies and chants from the people of Maasai, Datooga, Hadza, Pemba and Zanzibar tribes.

The new album entitled “Reprise” uses the same musical recipe, but with different ingredients. It was recorded last year in Russia, Nepal and India and includes 8 new tracks by the Russian artist. By this album Dubrajah delivers his returning to the start and principal point of his researches – to Asia. Using sampled sounds from India, Sri Lanka, Thailand and Mongolia, we are led into a magnificent dub journey through Asia. New sounds and vibrations, new destinations and inspirations!

Cafeina Kid – Neko

[pn115]

Cafeina Kid

“Neko”

“The album ‘Neko‘ [pn115] from ‘Cafeina Kid‘, the psuedonym of the musician from Concepción Pablo Cornejo, consists of 12 instrumental songs spun into an assemblage that above all resumes coherence in continuity with the treatment of sound, composition, and style with which he has managed to effectively express the legacy of electronic music from the beginning of 2000 to date.

His compositions imbibe of various styles, mainly ‘Electronic Dub’ and ‘Downtempo’, with touches of ‘glitch’ that have been amalgamated with the use of the sampler, a resource with which he takes clips of audio from diverse sources, though mainly of himself. ‘Cafeina Kid‘ presents us with a record in which he looks and listens to himself, collecting sounds and stretches of previous compositions, placing them in an exercise that allows him to re-signify them. It is an exercise in memory, an act that Pablo tranfers in a fluid way and that he has realized since I’ve known him, a very long ago time when we exchanged with Mika Martini – since Ud. No! -, extensive chains of emails, reflexive writings on style, aesthetics, history and anecdotes that did nothing more than connect our work with the true sense of pondering music.

Today we hear the echo of these dialogues in a concrete result, a new album of ‘Cafeina Kid‘ that acts as a happy reminder at the same time as a focus towards what may come with his next creations. This, because ‘Neko‘ [pn115] presents itself as a solid disk with sufficient potential for expecting a possible future discography with the quality of what is left here, a disc in which he references styles that he supports with an undeniable personal imprint, through which he demonstrates timid warmth, a well-developed melodic instinct and a grand tact for presenting, every time you listen to his music, several possible and impossible worlds simultaneously.”

“Red Star Martyrs”

The UK producer Stanley Woodfield, better known under the project-name Red Star Martyrs, has been one of the most active artists since the start of our label. After having released two EPs, “I & I” (2013) and “Time for Tea” (2014) and contributing in the compilation “United as One (2014), there was a silence for nearly 2 years. It has been a constructive silence … and today we are happy to announce his first long player. We have been saving this one for you to be our last release of 2016.

The self-titled digital LP includes 14 brand new tracks of total length of 63 minutes from the producer who has managed to set his own sound-mark on our label. Rootikal vibes with a twist and melodic dubwise sounds with live instruments played mainly by Stanley himself are the key ingredients of his style.

Jack_plug – Calles verticales

[M021]

Jack_plug

“Calles verticales”

Jack Plug inhabits the architecture of the skies. The one that hangs from ‘vertical streets’ of some cities of the world, that slide, like Valparaiso, as if they were about to fall down, or turn into horizons that could swallow it all if the oceans should rise.
Valparaiso and its landmarks are not supposed to be minimal. In this case, the 3 musical paintings that André Baradit S. is showing are in a certain way “maximal”.
A mature producer imbued with electronic work experience, his different projects usually generate a good flow sensation.
‘Techno in progress’ could explain what’s coming with ‘LOVE’ (Radio Edit), the track that opens the door to this EP. Jack Plug plays with some kind of “arrhythmia” that is self-sustainable. The latter creates a balanced harmonic feeling, evoking childhood memories at the end.
There are multiple sounds reverberating along the 3 tracks. Also dub-ambient references are made, but without missing the link with the rhythm development and the strength of the bass sound.
‘Feriado’ makes you wonder wheter you are bumping into a russian sailor or intercepting communications of two world power rivals.
Now ‘Feriado’ (the word in spanish for ‘holiday’) becomes a starry night (and not just any night but the one when stars really shine after the lights of the hill’s houses are turned off) and the music is an explotion of stardust like a micro-flare choreography.
‘Investigación’ points to something darker and less defined. The ‘echoing-dub’ has a structure that gives short metal whiplashes, with segments taken from the break-beat style. When the EP Is about to end, maybe we are going to remember the old funiculars and feel lonely when the sirens stop making their typical sounds.

Eter Dub – In da name of Jah

[DPH026]

Eter Dub

“In da name of Jah”

Eter Dub was founded by the dub master Federico Balza, in Mendoza (Argentina). The project was floating around the air for some years until the first works came out in 2015 through a self-release called “JaH-Fi”. Federico Balza (flute/sax) is a graduated musician from the Universidad Nacionalde de Cuyo with studies on classical flute and member of the Orquesta Sinfonica Juvenil (1st flute) in Argentina. As saxophonist (tenor/alt), flutist and keyboard player he collaborated with many reggae, dub and hip-hop bands like Zona Ganjah, Downbeat and Negritage touring around the underground scene of Latin America (Argentina, Bolivia, Colombia, Brazil).

Eter Dub offers a new fresh breeze in dub music. His sound cannot be framed into one genre. It is definitely dub, but with references not only to his classical musical studies but also into jazz, which is his second nature. Each composition offers originality and an alternative approach to dub music. From the “linguistical” approach on Hand Of Jah, to the slow and wild “Ras-Sax”, from the funk-jazzy “Jah Trax 5” to the adventurous “Jah Jah Love”, all seven tracks of the EP build a new concept of dub music.

Special thanks to Martin Musso and Richman Fyah for the guitars on this release, El Vignold for the awesome cover art and Salvator & Viento Zondub for the inspiration. Be prepared for something different.

Mastermind SX – Keep on moving

[DPH025]

Mastermind SX

“Keep on moving”

Mastermind XS is a dub-project from Saarbrucken/Germany, created by Daniel Stephan (guitar, bass, keyboard, programming, sitar) and Heiko Petry (vocals, lyrics, melodica, keyboard). Their music is based on a solid dub foundation: heavy basslines with conscious lyrics and deeply rooted dub & reggae with an interesting twist, integrating many influences such as electro, ethnic music, drum/n/bass and even indie or punk. Their sound unites different styles, which hardly fits into one single genre and are always exploring new musical spaces, combining their Ableton skills and live instruments, forming a unique ear-candy-mixture of grooves.

They have been busy releasing their music since October 2010 on diverse netlabels. Their first EP “One Dub Many Roots“, was released on the French netlabel LCL, while in 2011 their first long-player ”Reset all systems“ was released on Angel Dust Records. Their next album “Freedom of choice” was released in august 2014 again on LCL.

Dubophonic is proud to host their new album “Keep on moving”. It’s a compilation of 12 songs representing their unique and unconventional blend of dub & reggae. Modern and roots-elements are combined with drum/n/bass, electro, dubstep, indie rock heavy guitars, conscious lyrics and of course deep basses and delays.

Mastered by the pioneering artist, producer and peace activist Celt Islam, their new release (and their first on our netlabel) is a proof of the duo’s strength and innovation: writing reggae and dub oriented music with socially conscious lyrics and musically exploring different ideas, oscillating between danceable and meditative, powerful and calm, groovy and heavy, on their quest to define the far distanced borders of dub music.

“Dub Lucky Riddim”

Scorching heat, but the Riddim To Riddim series does not stop. Although late, this riddim comes to refresh us, previously unreleased but tied to the second release of the series, Get Chicken as fraternal twins.
The first two tracks are interpretations of two exceptional female voices, which give us two shades as diverse as equally intimate and personal. The first marks the return of Miz Brown with her powerful voice and her confident style, the second is the debut in the reggae scene of Resina that gives more new sounds to the Roman dub collettive’s music.
The third track is another Ras Moray’s song from the album Out Of City, always with a new mix for the occasion.
Our last guest is another Riddim To Riddim’s assiduous: Shiny D with another perfectly fitting melodica version.
As always the riddim closes the release, for use of those who want to try their skills with I Neurologici’s productions.

Amálgama is the willingness to talk about the world as living experiences.
The inspiration at the most unpretentious moments, which this album rescues, is the main compositions of the singjay Laylah along her way in Reggae Sound System culture, which began around 2005.
Amálgama is a fusion between music and truth.

I Neurologici, Ras Moray, Shiny D, Jobba – Unity Riddim

[SDR030]

I Neurologici, Ras Moray, Shiny D, Jobba

“Unity Riddim”

Despite Strato Dischi Notlabel has currently no facility, we do not miss our monthly appointment with Riddim To Riddim.
This is the month of Unity Riddim, in this historical moment that instead brings to light division and social fragmentation.
The first interpretation is Ras Moray. A new mix of this song from his album Out of City and closely linked to the Youth Art Center, a project that the Kenyan artist is funding with its sales.
Following, Shiny D, again with us this time with an organ performance that bears witness to his skills and his deep knowledge of the genre.
Jobba’s vocal track is a new mix of the 7 ” published by Real Rock at the end of 2015 and inspired by the Voice Of The People Sound System’s experience.
The more purely “neurological” version is dominated by the solo guitar of Matteo Minetti, always guitarist and one of the founders of the roman dub collective

[SDR029]

I Neurologici, Jobba, Ras Moray, Shiny D

“Nuova Resistenza Riddim”

The month of April could only be represented by this riddim, which despite being included in the 2009 album “In Dub Vol.2”, continues to inspire soloists and our friend Andrea Real Rock, who has always believed in its strength so much that he printed the Jobba’s interpretation “Stronger Than Them” on vinyl in December of 2015. A new mix of this track opens this fourth round with Riddim To Riddim by I Neurologici.
Following another Ras Moray poetry, from his album “Out Of City” and even this one with a new mix for the occasion.
The third track is shared by two wind instruments: a zampogna by Alessandro Mazziotti, one of the founders of the roman dub collective and a melodica by Shiny D, active for many years as a musician in the ranks of different formations in the roman reggae scene, today at his debut with his own project Seal’d In Vain.
As always the riddim closes the playlist, to be used by anyone who wants to add something of his own

Mr Zebre ft Rebel Legal Rmxs

[DPH024]

Mr Zebre ft Rebel-I

“Legal Rmxs”

The original version of LEGAL has been released back in 2012 in Mexico by Mr Zebre and Rebel-I, receiving some mad feedback everywhere it was played, especially in Latin America. In the frame of the world wide ganja legalisation movement and the new approach that many countries adopt, we decided to re-release the tune for free download, raising awareness ….. but of course we added that extra Dubophonic touch.

This is not the first time that Dubophonic released a remix album, but this is the first time that it was done in such an interactive way. This release is a result of a competition, which has been running for the last two months. Every artist had the opportunity to submit their own version of the song (remix, dub, rework). We received around 40 submissions and we would like to thank everybody for their contribution. Unfortunately we could not put all mixes on the release … but you know that dub music has nothing to do with competition. It has to do with the message we spread and with the vibes, and that big feedback proved that dub music has no borders. It is an international movement, growing stronger day by day. Big up to each and every one for the great vibes and also for the hard times you gave us, till we came to the final decision. Every version we received was unique!

The final selection was done by the Dubophonic crew, Mr Zebre, Rebel-I and a team of djs and selectors from various radio stations, who all casted their votes and compiled the list of the 13 tracks who made the final cut: Heavyweight names like Professor Skank (GR) and Al Breadwinner (UK), Dubophonic residents Mexican Stepper (MEX), Med Dred (CY) and Negritage (ARG), but also fresh rising artists like Zentash Gigawatt (BIH), Djiman (FR), Atlas Dub (FR), Sub Majesty (SUI), Injectah (RO), Dub Riots (GR), SKG’s Dub Alliance (GR), R3di the Dub Hermit (UK/CY), Colonial FX (IRL) and Dj Rastacore (ARG). Let the dub games begin!

Telegraphy – Greening Of Man

[iono-21]

Telegraphy

“Greening Of Man”

Through out time man has created and distorted himself and his surroundings. Just like the changing of the seasons with it’s inherent death and rebirth cycles, we are only to connected to this through observation and practice. Like a story being played out in front of us, we face it’s harsh realities all the time. The one who is at the center of this epic story is the one we call “The Green Man”. The king of rebirth and death is symbolized by a leafy skinned man. Having cast away into a deep slumber in autumn – only to rise again in spring. Green Man is waking up his kingdom with dubly sounds.

Telegraphy shares with us his deep connection with the natural world with awakening beats and atmospheric vibes. Just in time for spring.

I Neurologici, Simone Isidori, Pazmiño, Manicomio – Nuova Gnocca Riddim

[SDR027]

I Neurologici, Simone Isidori, Pazmiño, Manicomio

“Nuova Gnocca Riddim”

Irreverent, cheeky, sassy, provocative. I Neurologici confirmed a collective not granted,
capable of surprising and unpleasant choices.
The third riddim unites more reassuring sounds to less common imaginary, combining
blues, tradition and criticism, arising by the expert capacity of the three performers who
wanted to try their hand with this little challenge.

I Neurologici, Ras Moray, Miz Brown, Pazmiño, Matrix Dubb

“Get Chicken Riddim”

Second release of the Riddim to Riddim series.
Get Chicken is one of those riddim born a bit for fun during rehearsals and who is given a temporary name … that inevitably sticks to it.
Over time, this riddim has gained the interest of several people who work with the collective, enriched with very differrent interpretations by each of them.
Starting with Ras Moray, who used the riddim for his Out Of City, from the eponymous album launched by the artist during a series of events in Kenya and which will be used to collect funds for the construction of the Youth Art Center.
Follow the debut, in italian dub scene, of Miz Brown, italian recently moved to London and Pazmiño, from Ecuador.
Matrixx Dub has been involved as a musician in various British reggae productions.
