[DPH024] Mr Zebre ft. Rebel-I - Legal Rmxs

0 comments

Mr Zebre Ft. Rebel-I - Legal Rmxs // Dubophonic
Mr Zebre Ft. Rebel-I - Legal Rmxs // Dubophonic
Artist: Various Artists
Title: Legal Rmxs
Cat. Nr.: [DPH024]

Genre: Dub, Steppers, Dubwise, Jungle, Bass
Country:  Argentina, Bosnia Herzegovina, France, Greece, Ireland, Mexico, Romania, Switzerland, UK, Cyprus
Release date: 16/04/2016


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!




01 Professor Skank (remix) / 02 Negritage (chalatage discomix) / 03 Atlas Dub meets Sub Majesty (remix) / 04 Med Dred (dub melodica rework) / 05 Al Breadwinner (dub) / 06 Zentash Gigawatt (ganja shot remix) / 07 Mexican Stepper ft Djiman (legalized rework) / 08 Injektah (remix) / 09 Dub Riots (remix) / 10 SKG's Dub Alliance (remix) / 11 R3di the Dub Hermit (remix) / 12 Colonial FX (remix) / 13 Dj Rastacore (jungle remix)

[DUB003] Dillon Wyte - Power To Slay Giants

0 comments

Artist: Dillon Wyte
Title: Power To Slay Giants
Cat. Nr.: [DUB003]
Genre: Roots Reggae, American Roots, Dub
Country:
USA
Release date: 18/03/2016

Born in Arkansas USA, the multi-instrumentalist street musician Dillon Wyte has traveled quite a bit of the world, gathering musical experiences, which formed his very personal style in music. As a little boy he was always fascinated by the sound of music. His parents love for music and his natural gift to be able to figure out how to play every instrument he picked up, made it clear that music making would be his purpose in life.

At the age of 6, Dillon started playing guitar by ear and little later he taught himself drums and piano. As a young teen he encountered Jimi Hendrix, whose playing greatly enhanced his own, and through him he came to Bob Dylan, whose spirit gave him the confidence to sing. Dylan’s influence encouraged him to start writing his own material on the acoustic guitar.

Traveling all around the globe as a street musician, from USA to Europe, From Australia to Latin America, he had the chance to play his music live in every corner: on the streets, in bars, in coffee shops, and in festivals. There was so much influence coming from the streets and from his interaction with the people. It was through this interaction that he met the woman who was to be his future wife, who introduced him to reggae music. Through her, he discovered a new world full of vibrations and spirituality. Being the grandson of a preacher, the path to Jah was just a natural consequence in the artist’s life.

“Power To Slay Giants” is Dillon’s first work and the first ever “showcase” album released on Dubophonic. It is a one man show, showcasing through six vocal tracks and six dubs the artist’s vast talent as street musician, composer and songwriter, singer, instrumentalist, dub master and artist/painter (cover artwork). Dillon’s style is a joyful and harmonic amalgamation of roots reggae, American roots and dub, greatly influenced by the artist’s dearest idols.

From the rootical and conscious Bullies, to the hopeful inspired That Fine Day, to the majestic and lyrical Lamp Unto Thy Feet, all tracks have this positive message in their lyrics. With the voice channel mixed in the foreground, the tracks reflect that "live” street music flair, referencing the artist’s street background … and the dubs … well, just press PLAY, sit back and enjoy them. We are sure that they will give you the necessary strength to slay all the giants in your life.
