Praise be to the name of God for ever and ever,
wisdom and power are his.
He changes times and seasons;
he deposes kings and raises up others.
He gives wisdom to the wise 

and knowledge to the discerning.
He reveals deep and hidden things;
he knows what lies in darkness 

and light dwells with him.
I thank and praise you, God of my ancestors.
You have given me wisdom and power,
you have made known to me what we asked of you,
you have made known to us the dream of the king.

Negritage - Greetings from Planet Dub [DPH031]

Negritage - Greetings from Planet Dub [DH031] // Dubophonic
Negritage - Greetings from Planet Dub [DH031] // DubophonicFour years ago, back in 2013, the Argentinian dubbers Negritage made their first appearance on the label with Guetto Roots of Dub Vol. 1, an album recorded in “Cuca Roots” and in “El Fuerte Dub Foundation” studios, exploring the Jamaican roots and culture dub tradition. Their analogue style and their authentic sound was greatly appreciated by the listeners and the album remains until today the most downloaded release ever made by Dubophonic, with more than 25.000 downloads and still rising.

Fast forward today and the long awaited Vol. 2 is finally out. “Greetings from Planet Dub” stays true to the same roots and culture background with 6 vocal tracks and 11 dubs. Nevertheless new elements are incorporated in their style, in which eastern melodies blend into the Jamaican vibes and the melodica meets the mandolin and the lyre like in a musical playground, were the singers and players of instruments playfully communicate through their music.

Big up all the artists from all four corners of the world, who collaborated with Negritage and made this release possible: the original roots defender dub activist Jam York (USA), the mighty Sammy Gold (UK), the wise Ibel Campbell (JAM) delivering solid and conscious messages, the dub poet and writer Haji Mike (CY), the studio wizard and dub creator Med Dred (CY), sister Yuuri Bamboo (JPN) blazing those melodica vibes, Christina Polycarpou (CY) doing her magic on the lyre, the humble Mandlion (ITA), flute master Eter Dub (ARG) and the lyrical messenger Zion Irie (FR). All tracks mixed by Negritage in Argentina and mastered by Med Dred in Cyprus. Cover artwork by Negritage. Distributed by Dubophonic for free download.

Cinematographic milestone: Dubophonic meets NAKOM

0 comments

Zion Dirty Sound / NAKOM film / Dubophonic
NAKOM is a film set in present day Ghana. It follows Iddrisu, a talented medical student, who returns to his home village of northern Ghana after his father's sudden death. Faced with a debt that could destroy his family, Iddrisu has no choice but to turn their farm and fortunes around. Over the course of a growing season, Iddrisu confronts both the tragedy and beauty of village life and must finally choose between two very different futures.

The film has been shown in many international film festivals  like the 66th Berlin International Film Festival and the New Directors/New Films Festival in New York. It won the Audience Choice Award at the 37th Durban International Film Festival, nominated for the Best First Feature Award at the 66th Berlin International Film Festival, nominated for the FIPRESCI Prize, the Golden Firebird Award, and the SIGNIS Award at the Hong Kong International Film Festival, nominated for the New Directors Competition at the Seattle International Film Festival and for the 2016 Independent Spirit John Cassavetes Award. In 2017 it has been selected for the Pan African Film Festival and is nominated for the "John Cassavetes" Awar.

We were very proud, honored and of course full of joy, as we were contacted by the the film directors Kelly Daniela Norris and T. W. Pittman requesting our musical contribution with the track "Cumbia Fever" by Zion Dirty Sound, released on the compilation Celebrity Fever / Reworks and Dubs, which we of course did without second thought and without any financial compensation. Massive respect to all the NAKOM crew for this great cinematographic experience and of course Djibril and Faida for the great vibes they provide us through their music.

Watch a small scene from the film, with Zion Dirty Sound's music playing on the background. Soon come in a cinema theater in your country!
