Blessed Vibrations ina Spring time. This is the time of the "Sakura", the time of the year when the cherry trees blossom. Dub Thomas representing the Dubophonic family, travels from 4-17th April to the land of the rising sun to spread the positive vibrations and promote the sound of our family. What a perfect time to enjoy the awakening of the Spring and do with our Jah-pan family some joyful dub sessions.

We start on the 5th of April with "Rebel Skunk Sunday" from 13:00-18:00 in the town of Hanno, Saitama Perfecture, Tokyo. Hosted by the Rebel Skunk Warriors (Jahvaneeze, Deeco, DubLaugh/SkyBirdSound) and alongside Direct Impact, we let the vibes flow in a 5 hour session at Paddock Pass.  One Scoop, One Turntable, One Vibe powered by the Yellow suite Mini Set ina rebel skunking style!

Next stop: the Tokyo metropolis. It is a blessing that the Dubophonic sound will be blasted through the soundsystem of the oldest and most respected reggae club in Tokyo, Club Open, located in the bustling Shinjuku district. On the 10th of April come ina di dance and enjoy an all night session of Rasta-far-I culture sounds with lives by the band Jahspells, guest djs Mathew Tagood (Monte Bailanta) and Dub Thomas (Dubophonic) and resident Dj's Luv Kiyoshi, Iwa-T, Katsu, Misato and our bredren Big H, father figure and originator of the japan reggae scene.

We then travel back to Hanno City on the 12th of April in a place called "Ebisu Cafe" and from there we do a special radio broadcast for Versionist Radio alongside Direct Impact and many special guests in an open mic style. All tribes are welcome to join us, but even if you are not in in Japan, just tune in from 11:00am - 14:00pm UK time and celebrate with us on this special day, Dub Thomas celebrating his 50th birthday.

Jennifer Paulos featured on Irie Mag


After the United Kingdom and France, perhaps the most promising rising force in the Reggae & Dub scene in the European world of vibes is Spain. One of Spain's most talented new artists is without doubt, Jennifer Paulos. It was a such a joy to read in the March issue of Irie Mag, in the Irie Dub section, an exclusive interview with Jennifer Paulos.

The Hispano-Swiss-Portuguese artist reasons with the founder and editor in chief of the magazine Nicholas De Silva about her love and respect for Dub and Reggae, her musical background, her first encounter with Dubophonic and how "Revolution" was released, as well as about her future plans and ideas for new music and collaborations. Read the whole interview and download for free many of her tunes. Big up all the Irie Mag crew!

[DPH020] Mexican Stepper ft Rebel-I - Run & Tell REMIXEDAfter his first release on Dubophonic and following his recent European tour, the international artist from Mexico Yasser Serano, better known as Mexican Stepper, returns with another heavyweight track. Based on the same concept of the Mad Sunday EP, Yasser introduces his new tune “Run & Tell” and calls in these times of tribulation the Peruvian singer Rebel-I for vocal assistance, running and telling to the four corners of the world that Babylon is falling down. Originally the title track has been included in Mexican Stepper’s digital LP “Piramide del Sol” from last year released on the French netlabel Original Dub Gathering.

Since Dubophonic likes to experiment and stir things together, we have called assistance from our extended family of artists and asked them to spread the conscious message of the tune in their own style and fashion. The result was twelve exclusive versions of the original tune, reconstructed and mixed all around the world, strengthening the bonds and proving one more time, that conscious dub music is an international thing. Among all versions there is one special dubplate by Mexican Stepper and five remixes by Injham (FR), Thriakis Dub Destroyer (FR), Koncrete Roots (UK), JahYu (GER) and Mr Zebre (FR), as well as six alternative cuts/dubs by Du3normal (HUN), Holy Sound Crew (FR), Murjah Warriors (ITA), Dubios (GER), Mr Mefistou (PR) and Ktopp (GER).

Which is your favourite? You may prefer Mr Zebre’s warrior style vibration or the rootically inspired remix of Thriakis Dub Destroyer. Perhaps it’s the organic skunking melody of the Murjah Warriors, armed with a mandolin and a melodica ina “Renaissance” steppa style, that will carry you away inna cloud of irieness … or the heavy vibrations of Koncrete Roots and Injham. Perhaps the correct question should be “Which one is our favourite?” Well, all twelve versions are heavy enough to set Babylon on fire. So play them LOUD! It remains to you to discover the vibes hidden behind each version!

Dubophonic Showcase on Starfrosh RadioDigitally Imported meets DubophonicIn the last months many Dubophonic releases are receiving an increased amount of airplay, sometimes too much to track down! In the last weeks two new radio stations, representing the new fashion of airplay with rotation lists, voting and statistics formed by the listeners, have included the catalog of the netlabel on in their daily playlist.
The first one is the Dub channel of the Digitally Imported Radio (DI) operated by Panayiotis Lanbropoulos AKA Takito Jockey. The Dub channel broadcasts 24/7 "downtempo reggae rhythms with sampled vocals, drenched in sound FX" and showcases a wide selection of tunes in the dubwise tradition, giving the opportunity to the listeners to vote for their favourite tracks, interacting and affecting the playlist. Negritage, Karma Dub, Koncrete Roots and the rest of the Dubophonic family are included in their daily playlist!

The other one is the well known Starfrosch platform based in Switzerland, which offers podcasts and selected music for free download. Starfrosch has recently started operating their own 24/h Radio, taking its listeners on an emotional journey of life and love, through Electronic, Rock, Hip-Hop, Folk, Jazz, Classical, Dub and Children music. Dubophonic is showcased on a daily basis through a dedicated 2-hour slot from 21:00-23:00 GMT+1. Hope you enjoy the vibes!
