DubRaJah - Nilotic [DUB012]

DubRaJah - Nilotic / Dubophonic
DubRaJah - Nilotic / DubophonicDubrajah, one of the most prolific Dubophonic artists, is back with his new release.  The ethnomusicologist from Russia continues to follow the path he started in year 2014, demonstrating with each release his ability to fuse a deep digital dub style with organic sounds, traditional African melodies and chants. After Enkang (2014) and Reprise (2017), the Russian artist Sergey Gabbasov returns with his new EP entitled Nilotic.

Nilotic is a group of people indigenous to the Nile valley. Dubrajah’s new music is a journey inspired by the cultures of East Africa and specifically by the Nilotic people. All compositions include samples of traditional music and singing of Twa, Karamojong, Maasai & Swahili people.

The first track Mji Mkongwe (which means "old town" in Swahili language) is inspired by an old part of the Zanzibar city, which is also known as "Stone Town". This town from the time of its foundation has been the melting pot of people and cross-point of cultures of Indian ocean - from Madagascar to Iran, from Congo to Indonesia.

Karamoja, the second track, applies to a region in the North of Uganda. its main inhabitants are Nilotic people, Karamojong and Ik, who are semi-nomadic pastoralists.

The last track refers to Bwindi, a large primeval forest in southwestern of Uganda (means "impenetrable" in Runyakitara language), which includes the half of the world's population of mountain gorillas. Previously it was inhabited by Twa pygmies - hunter-gatherers, first indigenous people, who have been resettled by the government outside of the forest, because of creation of the National Park.

Foshan Roots - The Wing Chun Album (DUB010)

Foshan Roots - The Wing Chun Album / Dubophonic
Foshan Roots - The Wing Chun Album / DubophonicThe peaceful ZEN-warriors are back! It is a joy when a project, which has been inactive for over five years, comes back to live. It is even more interesting; when this happens because of the feedback it received by the listeners.

Such is the case of Foshan Roots. Founded back in the summer of 2012 by Brad Turner and Thomas Dewey, the duo made an impact when their first album Sky Attack Dub (written in 2012 to be released on the now obsolete label Springline Records, but never got released until the end of 2017 when it was discovered by Dubophonic, saving the master recordings from destruction) was awarded by Roots Reggae Reviews as one of the best albums of 2017.

Having received countless positive reviews and airplay and feeling the love they received, the duo was motivated enough to enter again the CAF Studios in East London and produce their new awaited album.

The Wing Chun Album consists of 10 new tracks with a dubwize feeling. Staying true to the style they introduced in their previous album, their 2018 sound is rootical and deep, with a strong stepper feeling, great bass lines and the addition of horns, oft accompanying the guitar and the melodica.

Credits: All instruments played by Brad Turner & Tom Dewey. All tracks recorded & mixed at CAF Studios East London and mastered at Med Dred Studios in Cyprus.
