Culture Horn - Dub Laboratory, Vol. 1 (c) 2022 Dubophonic
Culture Horn Sound System, the heavyweight sound system from the town of Kremenki in the Kaluga region in Russia, was build back in 2012. Gathering at least a dozen of musicians around it, it formed a big musical family from all over Russia. Armed with dubplates from local and international artists produced exclusively for Culture Horn, they are celebrating this year their 10thn anniversary.


This is a special release, dedicated to the 10th anniversary of the sound system, with tracks accompanied the dances for the last 10 years. 
 
For this release we have compiled a collection of four of the most popular dubs played during the dances, accompanied by their versions. These are all fire steppers produced by the Culture Horn dub laboratory and offered for free download to all the fans and followers to celebrate with them this special occasion!

Dub Idren ft. I-niverse - Mystical Valley [DUB051]

Dub Idren ft. I-niverse - Mystical Valley (c) Dubophonic 2022
The outernational dub duo of Dub Idren and I-niverse return in 2022 with a new single. After Roots Strong, which was released in December 2021, the Colombian melodica player & producer Dub Idren collaborates one more time with UK reggae dub producer I-niverse. The result is an instrumental journey to the Mystical Valley, which is presented in two different cuts.

Dub Idren: Reggae artist located in Colombia. This project was born in 2019, with the aim of merging Caribbean reggae with sounds from his land, to give an experience full of delight and rhythm for extremely fine ears, manifesting through deep melodies a unique sensation, which will make you connect with your inner self in a mental and spiritual way, with a powerful energy that transmits the message of unity. 

I-niverse: Selector and roots, reggae dub producer spreading the message of peace, love & unification through the works. I-niverse’s sound takes you on an uplifting spiritual journey, driven by pulsating weighty bass lines and majestic melodies that send positive vibrations to the heart and help one to experience states of inner peace. Hailing from the UK, I-niverse has releases with the likes of Earl 16, Amelia Harmony, Sista Sherin, Zion Irie and Murray Man’s Mellow Vibes Label. He is currently working on numerous outernational projects.

Messian Dread - Tunes For Thoughts [DUB050]

Messian Dread - Tunes For Thoughts / Dubophonic 2022
Last year we introduced to you through the re-release of the 2007 track Maranatha, Messian Dread, that versatile personality from the Netherlands: Producer, singer, player of instruments, writer, reviewer, selector, and editor/webmaster of Dubroom, one of the longest running platforms/netlabels promoting Dub Reggae and Consciousness since 1997.

To real understand the background behind Messian Dread's musical vibes, we recommend reading the Congeregation Of Selassie-I / An Interview With Messian Dread.

Tunes For Thoughts is a compilation of tracks from Messian Dread’s archives, produced by him between 2006 and 2008. It is the first time that they are all put together in a compilation, since they were originally released in the past as separate digital EPs with many alternative versions of each track. We have compiled for you the discomixes, which is the trademark of Messian Dread.

In Reggae, when you like a tune, you listen to it a few minutes and after the vocal version you play the dub. But the discomix tradition is something that is not really seen or heard these last years. A discomix version is there to make you feel the experience, to feel and meditate. You'll listen to a full track in a discomix style and when you look back to Reggae tradition, you know what this is about.
 
The term discomix is not very familiar. It comes from the 70's and 80's. We talk about a tune with lyrics, followed by a dub version. All in one long mix. A concept hardly followed anywhere nowadays, because of sentiments or whatever. Messian Dread has been pushing it to the limits and we as a label, we recognize him as a pioneer respecting this format and we forward it to you. This is stuff not only to listen but to be part of the experience as well.
 
Enjoy the vibes. They were produced for your enjoyment and edification throughout the decades. Most of all, produced for you in freedom. Free to hear the messages and free to think!

Creation Rockers - Let's Make Waves [DPH052]

Creation Rockers - Let's Make Waves / Dubophonic (C) (P) 2022
We continue digging into the lost archives of Springline Records, one of the most underrated reggae and dub labels of the UK, which has been operational from 2003 until 2012. 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. After 10 years of operation, two vinyl releases and many tapes and digital releases the label stopped its operations in 2013, with the owner of the label Gibsy Rhodes deciding to put an end to that musical adventure. What is left nowadays are some articles/reviews on the internet and some music scattered online, reminding the era of a great label, which unfortunately did not get the recognition it deserved, as well as a usb stick handed over to us by Gisby Rhodes, with some musical treasures from that time: demos, unreleased and rare tracks.

Recorded in the legendary CAF Studios, Let’s Make Waves and Soul Fighter by the band Creation Rockers were originally released in 2012 as an extended play. The band members were Brad Τurner aka The Manor (also member of Foshan Roots) on the guitar & vocals, Alan Blizzard aka Yabass also on guitar & vocals, Drummie Dan on the drums & vocals and Papa D on the keyboards. Ten years later, we shine some light on this obscure release, keeping the original artwork but including for the first time three rare tracks, which were not included in the original release.

Creation Rockers are The Manor (Guitar, Vocal), Yabass (Guitar, Vocal), Drummie Dan (Drums, Vocal) and Papa D (Keyboards).
