Open call for the 1st Dubophonic remix "competition"

Open call for the 1st Dubophonic remix "competition" / Mr. Zebre ft Rebel-I / Legal
It is official, the 1st remix "competition" by Dubophonic has started and everybody can participate. This is an open call to all artists, sounds, producers, singers and players of instruments. Courtesy of Mr. Zebre and  Rebel-I, we will proceed with re-releasing a legendary tune, produced by Mr. Zebre some years ago.

The original version of LEGAL has been released back in 2012, receiving some amazing airplay, especially in Latin America. In the frame of the world wide legalisation movement, we have decided to re-release the tune for free download, but of course we will add that extra dubophonic touch by remixing it, dubbing it or even doing a complete rework.

... and everybody can participate. Just send us an email including some links to listen to your sound and we will answer you back with all the details on this project. You will get all necessary files to work on your mix. The best ones will be included in this digital online release, alongside some new heavyweight versions by Professor Skank, Mexican Stepper, Fleck, Mr. Zebre himself and many more. 

Once the contest is ended, all submitted remixes will be saved in our archive and those not released may be used in future Dubophonic compilations. It is prohibited to release the tune in any format anywhere else and all rights are reserved to Mr Zebre and Rebel-I. It is nevertheless allowed the use of the mixes exclusively for live acts and dj sets.

Last submission date is the 28th of February. So start dubbing it, remixing it, or reworking it from scratch with new instruments and alternative vocals in your own language on the same subject. Let the dub games begin!

Happy New Year with more love and more vibes

We wish to each and everyone of you all the best for the new year 2016 ... to all the artists, the players of instruments, the vocalists, the producers, the radio stations, the promoters, to all who are supporting us from the first day. You are too many too mention, you reside all over the world and our appreciation and love is everlasting. We never thought in our wildest dreams that a small label from Cyprus, an island where the dub/reggae culture is still at its "baby steps", would receive such an acceptance from the dub community world wide. 

The statistics: 25 releases, 42 artists, 250000 page visits, over 150000 plays (soundcloud, FMA, archive.org), 1450 facebook likes and over 100000 downloads!

Large up to all of you, we made this together, side by side ... and we will continue stronger in year 2016. Watch this space, since we will soon announce some new releases. In case you missed our online gathering, you can listen to the podcast of that special session, playing many tunes from our past releases and also sneaking into the 2016 catalog, playing some some new unreleased tunes. Give thanks!


Run and Tell - First 7inch vinyl release on Dubophonic

0 comments

It was about time! Dubophonic has just launched its first project on Dub Funder, the first in its kind crowdfunded vinyl service for dub music. Vinyl has always been asked by many people who download our music, but it has always been difficult, due to the big costs involved. But Dub Funder makes this possible! In order to succeed though we need your assistance. How can you help? Read further.

As first release on vinyl we will press in a limited edition of only 250 copies this massive track by the heavyweight dub champion Mexican Stepper. Vocalised by the Peruvian singer Rebel-I, “Run & Tell” is a call for revolution in these times of tribulation. Strictly warrior style vibes ... and we have chosen for the b-side the instrumental version by the Murjah Warriors. Armed with a mandolin and a melodica ina “Renaissance” steppa style, they will skunk you away in a cloud of irieness. Original Dubophonic sounds on limited vinyl, for all you djs, soundsystem operators and vinyl lovers!

How can you help us? Share, advertise, but most important, pre-order the single. Once we gather all the money required to cover the cost for 250 copies, we will proceed with the vinyl release. We have only 90 days to raise the money! If we succeed, everybody will get their vinyl posted directly to their door, otherwise Dubfunder will refund the money and  the project will be cancelled. But we don't want this to happen, seeen! So spread the word, run and tell to the four corners of the world that Babylon is falling down to the sounds of Mexican Stepper, Rebel-I and Murjah Warriors! It is in our own hands to make it happen! Let the dub games begin!

The single (7') consists of
SIDE A: Mexican Stepper ft. Rebel-I - Run and tell
SIDE B: Murjah Warriors - Skunking Melody

This is a LIMITED EDITION 250 item RUN exclusive to Dub Funder.
