“The first Explorations In Dub compilation was released back in year 2013, showcasing the works of many artists from around the world and their personal approach on dub music. In the present time of COVID-19, most producers have been in a lockdown. Nevertheless their creativity did not stop and some fresh ideas started to sprout while in isolation. So it was time, seven years later, for a Vol. 2, showcasing again many great outernational projects.”
“We’ve been bunkered down in silence this pandemic but have had our ears, hearts and minds tuned to the world. Submerged in reflection, we decided to cook up a compilation in solidarity with Bandcamp’s initiative to support the Black Lives Matter movement via the NAACP Legal Defence Fund.
Donate-what-you-can for dub renditions of Multi Culti classics – Phase 1 includes smoked-out extended versions of Nicola Cruz, Zongamin, Drugface and Golden Bug.”
“This time, Pierro invites you to fly to the moon, listening to influenced dub! That said, he tried to stay as close as possible to the roots spirit! Throughout the album, you can discover the reuse of all these samples offered by NASA during Apollo expeditions.
Each piece represents a special facet of the dub. You will have surprising tracks, sometimes tinged with glitch, sometimes melancholic, sometimes very fat! There will probably be a song that you prefer.”
“Two years after their first release South Of the River Clyde in 2018, the Scottish duo Gary Lamont and Richy Clark return with a second EP with more reworks of some of their favourite dub tracks. These reworks were written back in 2013 but never received the respect they deserved, suffering from lack of attention.
In this second EP entitled King Of Dub, they concentrate on the works of King Tubby, using the same approach recording wise as in South Of The River Clyde, trying to emulate some great King Tubby masterpieces. Richy played guitar, Garry played bass and covered all other sounds and the production, but this time the duo was enriched with the addition of Ian Borthwick on the drums.
That was the second and apparently the last try of The Dubwegians to establish themselves as a dub band. Unfortunately the project that Richy dreamed off in 2013, never really managed to pull off. It kind of fizzled out after a while as people came and went. Up for a jam and some good time but not up for putting in the hours of practice needed. We thought it would be nice to share these tunes, done a long time ago, and give them another lease of life! We hope you enjoy them!”
“During this decade of Cold Tear Records label activity, our artist Giriu Dvasios has made a bunch of remixes for various releases of our catalog. So we decided to put them all together as a compilation. And it’s free!”
