“The Dubwegians where founded in the UK back in 2010, when Gary had the idea of starting a dub band. He, therefore, approached his old school friend Richy, whose guitar skills were always thought highly of. He just wanted to play bass in the band and not do any producing.
Gary remembers: ‘We tried to capture the energy of a live band. In the absence of a drummer, it was a struggle for us to use a software, trying to capture the original warmth of analogue dub. It was a real learning experience; listening and trying to emulate these dub masterpieces. We have never done dub producing before and were slowly realizing some of the techniques used.’
South of the River Clyde includes 5 instrumental tracks; dub reworks of some great roots reggae masterpieces, produced back in 2011 with love and lots of passion. Richy played melodica and keyboards (and also guitar on “Sun is shining Dub), Gary played bass and covered all other sounds and production, using a laptop to overdub and edit their takes. Give thanks to Robert McWilliams for granting us the license to use the photo of the river Clyde in the artwork.”
“It’s a new release day again, and this time we present you a new EP by a producer from Moscow known as Shāman. And his EP is called City Motion. It’s a beautiful trip through ambient / deep techno soundscapes!”
“Nikos Tryfonopoulos, also known as 3voice, is a Greek dj and producer currently based in Athens. His music ranges from dub techno riddims to deep dubstep tunes and is also influenced by Ambient and experimental sounds.
The Soul Prince project was born in January under the grey Berlin sky, and was completed early this summer in Athens. Soul Prince is based on dub sounds, with analog echo units and live Ableton mixing. Its title was inspired by the Vocal cut from Prince far I album ‘Dub to Africa’.”
“This album is a ‘road-guide’ on different musical genres, filled with guitars and experiments with synthesizers. Let’s ride along the dusty deserted roads and futuristic cosmic spaces – there is a lot of interesting.
The working on the album was assisted by Igor Suprunyuk, for which many thanks to him!”
