Black Market & Wise Owl : Blondie [BMD031]

“This album is dedicated to the memory of LEE SCRATCH PERRY.

Why is the new wave/punk era so ripe for dub? The influence reggae had on that scene is pretty incredible, and each time I work on remixing music from that era I’m amazed by how well it turns out. Here we are. EP #31 with many, many more to come. Blondie has been a blast to explore this summer, and working on this music has taught me a ton about pop song structure. I really think you’ll enjoy this one!

Once again we have the amazing Wise Owl returning to his now permanent post in this group. Thank god for good friends during times like these, and here’s to making much more music together!

LISTEN LOUD!

Evening News : In Dub [DUBBHISM-018]

“Stop the press!! It’s a ska dub revolution!!! Evening News is an exciting new ska / rocksteady / roots reggae band from the Netherlands. They are taking over the nation with a wicked rhythm section, a proper old school horn section and a lead vocalist who has dedicated his everything to Jamaican old school music.

When the band approached Tony Dubshot with the tapes of their first demo recordings, the dub engineer knew he had struck gold. Always in for a challenge, he fired up his ancient analog gear and started dubbing. The result is now available as a dubbhism netlabel release.

If you live in the Netherlands, make sure you catch this ska sensation live. If you’re somewhere else on the planet… the next Evening News concert will be recorded and mixed by Dubshot, and the tape will appear on this blog some time later this year. More fiya!! Enjoy…”
