The Manor - Walk With Jah [DUB008]


The Manor - Walk With Jah / Dubophonic
The Manor - Walk With Jah / DubophonicReggae has been oft characterised as a music of feeling over technique. It is a fact that reggae rhythms were rarely rendered or produced with any competence by foreigners until the last two decades or so.  Walk with Jah, the first album on Dubophonic by the UK reggae & dub artist/producer Brad Turner aka The Manor is an example of such competence.

Being one of the main artists behind the Foshan Roots project and having released a few works on the discontinued Springline Records label, which can be found on compilations and EPs (some are now obsolete, others are still to be found scattered all around the internet), this is first complete album of The Manor.

Walk With Jah features eleven pure and heavy roots & dub tracks. The Manor has an authentic cultural vibe about his musical works, which is showcased throughout the album. It is obvious that he is influenced by the works of past masters, mainly Lee Scratch Perry. All tracks were recorded in CAF studios in the UK, which is becoming the boiler room of creativity akin to Black Ark in the 1970’s.

This is an album for the lovers of roots reggae and dub music, the way it used to be; a sincere tribute to the music of the 70s and a nicely crafted window into one man's journey through the music and the culture he loves. We hope you love it too and you enjoy the journey!

Alll tracks of the album were composed, mixed & performed by Brad Turner (The Manor). Give thanks Alan Blizzard (Yabass) for the cover artwork.

Moune - The Legacy Of The Sun [DUB007]


Moune - The Legacy Of The Sun / Dubophonic 2018
Moune (pronounced “moon”) is a 21-year-old French artist who produces electronic and instrumental dub. He started to play the guitar in 2008 and discovered electronic music in 2014. After many experiments with very different styles like hip-hop, house, trance, glitch hop and electro swing, he finally started to create dubwize music in 2017.

Moune - The Legacy Of The Sun / Dubophonic 2018Being a multi-instrumentalist, Moune plays guitar, melodica, saxophone, flute and percussions. He also uses his voice in some of his compositions, sending out his conscious message.

He loves to mix the dubwize/electronic sounds with acoustic instruments and ethnic melodies, which results in the creation of very melodic and energetic dubwise music ... and all this produced in his bedroom studio!

The Legacy Of The Sun is the first release of Moune on the label. It includes altogether five tracks; two with vocals by Moune himselfand three instrumentals, all with a heavy ethnic dubwise feeling. All five tracks of the EP are composed, mixed and performed by Moune himself.

The best way to describe the style of this young French artist is not with words. You have to listen to it yourself and we are sure you will enjoy his musical adventure.
