DubRaJah - Repatriation [DUB030]

DubRajah - Repatriation / Dubophonic Records (c) 2021
DubRaJah has a unique way of blending the cultural elements from the countries he has been to, into his music. Being an anthropologist and ethnomusicologist, he has made many ethnographical expeditions in different parts of Africa, Asia and Europe, produced several films about indigenous peoples and studied their native music.

His journey on our label started in 2014 with the EP Enkang, introducing a style that fuses dub with ethnic elements, samples and recordings made through his various journeys. In 2017 came the LP Reprise and 2019 the EP Nilotic. 
 
This is his fourth release, his second album entitled Repatriation, which is a collection of music recorded between 2016 and 2020 in Arusha (Tanzania), Sauraha (Nepal) and Moscow (Russia). Strictly outernational ethnic dubwise sounds. Our favourite track: Sajenio!

Dub Cmd & Irie-D - Jah Children Cry [DPH048]

Dub Cmd & Irie D - Jah Children Cry

After a prolific 2020, Dub Cmd returns in 2021 with his first release of the year. This time he works on the classic anthem Jah Children Cry paying respect to Jah Shaka, who started in the 70s spreading through his sound the Rastafari culture in the UK and still sticks to his vision until today.

Dub Cmd’s rework is done in a roots steppers style, featuring on the vocals Irie-D from Greece, on her first appearance on our label.

iRoadie - Dub Time [DUB029]

iRoadie - Dub Time / Dubophonic (C) 2021

IRoadie, born in The Netherlands in 1968, embraced the reggae scene at a very young age. The first lick on his guitar was Marley`s “Redemption song” at 11 years old. He spent his youth on stage and in rehearsal playing with many bands throughout the years, with rhythm guitar and roots reggae as his main focus. Working with multitrack recorders made him an independent producer and qualified broadcast studio engineer while the digital revolution enabled him a worldwide audience.

After years of manufacturing percussion instruments, studio work became his core business. Many artists visited his studio dubbing tracks. Cd productions followed in the styles of traditional Wassolon Mali music, Ska, Rock Steady and Roots Reggae. As time passed, he enjoyed many live performances and tours as guitarist and percussionist.

Fast forward to the present, iRoadie supports art students in audio visual technics, while he keeps the fire alive with a stream of new Roots Dub productions and playing guitar in a Rock-Steady band. iRoadie never gets weary and a new challenge starts for him in 2021, through a collaboration with Dubophonic Records. His debut EP on the label is entitled “Dub Time”. It consists of three dubs, the first one being based on the classic Cuss Cuss riddim featuring Stefanosis on the melodica. Strictly positive vibes!

Soul Fire - Wake Up Your Lion [DUB028]

Soul Fire - Wake Up Your Lion / Dubophonic (p) 2021
Lee “Scratch” Perry’s 70‘s classic “Soul Fire” was the ignition for the songwriter and singer Vassilis Savopoulos a.k.a “Jah Smiley” from Thessaloniki, to form in the beginning of 90’s “Soul Fire”, the first reggae band in Greece. It has been almost thirty years since then and probably no one could have ever imagined, that this reggae band would record their first album with the internationally renowned dub producer Mad Professor in 2005 and play as the opening act for the legendary band of Bob Marley, "The Wailers”. Well-known artists participated in that first album: drummer “Sinclair”, member of Lee Scratch Perry’s band “Roboticks”, Aisha on the backing vocals, Cofi and Mafia from “Mafia & Fluxy” plus MC Fredi Kruga.

Wake Up Your Lion is Soul Fire’s 2nd album and was originally released back in 2013 on Soul Fire Music. We feel honoured to be able to digitally distribute this album through Dubophonic Records, eight years after its original release. The album is mixed and mastered by Professor Skank and includes fourteen tracks ina roots and culture style. With classics like “Rasta People”, “Wake Up Your Lion” and “Rootsman Skanking”, this album is without doubt an important piece of reggae culture in Greece.
