Muflon Dub Soundsystem ft. Melana / Dubophonic (c) 2021
After a successful release of their previous works compilation, time has come for some new music from Muflon Dub Soundsystem. Together with the charismatic vocalist Melana, they present a new powerful song about who we are and where we are going to.

“Steppin To The Highest Region” comes in 4 different versions. All of them give you lots of Dub effects, ambient spaces, heavy drum and bass and a very slow pace. Adding strong Roots and Biblical inspiration, conscious message and heartical vocals, the release has an upful vibe, good for meditation.

Muflon Dub Soundsystem: Reggae and Dub music project from Poland, founded by Muflon Man, Dub producer, songwriter and musician. For many years delivers Roots influenced progressive music in pursuit of Heartical Sound.

Melana: singer and songwriter from Poland. Having strong musical background and variety of artistic experience (opera and theatre career included), she started to record her own songs recently. This is where she met Muflon Man. This is first fruit of their cooperation, we hope for more songs in near future.

Munay Ki Dub - Sueňos / Dubophonic (c) 2021
Munay Ki Dub is an electronic dub trio, representing a new breed of dub artists. Hailing up from the mountains of central Argentina, they combine live instruments such as violin, melodica, percussion, bass and guitar with programming, effects and digital instruments. The name comes from the South American Quechua language and means “I Love Dub”. 

Munay Ki Dub  / Dubophonic
In September 2019, Munay Ki Dub released their debut EP “MKD” with  Dubophonic Records, lyrically using the English and Spanish languages as a form of political expression and social awareness/consciousness, musically gliding between digital roots reggae, dub & bass and steppa. Within the first few weeks of its release, MKD was sounding out on radios in Argentina, Peru, Mexico, Italy, Spain, UK, Ireland, Israel, Hawaii, Finland, Belgium, Cyprus, Greece, Turkey, Germany, Holland, France, Australia, Canada and the US. 

Currently Munay Ki Dub is preparing to release their new EP “Groove of Meditation” with Dubophonic Records, recorded in the mythical Los Angeles studio in Traslasierra, Córdoba, Argentina, with technical production support from renowned sound engineer Felix Valls.

Sueños invites you to pursue your dreams through the very groove of meditation. The song came to life in the mystical hills of central Argentina and was born to electronic dub trio Munay Ki Dub just as the first lockdown set in. Inspired by a strange stillness and introspectiveness that appeared to cover the world in those first weeks, Sueños is a call from within, a call to keep going, to expand, into your light. We make dreams come true.

Chebeen Teriya meets Sub Conscious Dub - Ajabro [DUB038]

Chebeen Teriya is a unique 5 piece band lead by singer/multi-instrumentalist Dramane Bakwan, who brings original music from his homeland of Burkina Faso. From a young age, Dramane participated in the sacred musical traditions of the Gourounsi people of Burkina Faso (West Africa). His insatiable appetite for music drove him to study the myriad of rhythms and melodies of ethnic groups throughout the region. A love of country and continent has inspired him to write over one hundred original songs with lyrics in five languages. His work explores social, environmental, and political themes with the aim of inspiring people to take care of one another and the planet they share.

Sub Conscious Dub is the project of Antreas Kassos, representing the new breed of dub producers coming from Cyprus. His talent was already recognised very early, participating in various local festivals and online events (Unity Vibes, Reggae Sunjam, Lockdowndub Weekender) and being featured in the Explorations In Dub Vol. II compilation. His dub mix of Dubmatix tune Jump And Twist has received some crazy airplay and the artist was endorsed by Dubmatix himself, including him in his Bassment Sessions radio show.

Blending West African sounds with roots reggae, “Ajabro” (which means in the African tradition “Sorcerer”, “Witch Doctor” or “The one that evil can’t hide from”) is the result of the collaborative work of those exiting new artists. The EP is the first collaboration between Cyprus and Burkina Faso. It contains “Jeune Africain” & “Terrorist”, two vocal tracks with a big social message, composed by Dramane Bakwan and written in French and in Dioula languages, as well as two heavy dubs/versions by Sub Conscious Dub. The tracks were originally recorded in Vietnam, where the artists met each other, and dubbed in Cyprus.
