A very special evening coming your way on the 5th Jan 2017 in Nicosia, Cyprus. Introducing you on the decks Syrina Sound and Dubophonic, blending the conscious messages of Reggae and Dub music with the modern digital sounds of Steppers.
★ Syrina Sound ★ Based in Amsterdam, Syrina Sound is a collective of two female selectors. Playing strictly vinyl, Syrina Sound brings old and new roots, reggae and dub music to the dance: from the Abyssinians, King Tubby, Aba Shanti I and Jah Shaka, to Empress Shema, King Alpha, Jah Militant and Maasai Warrior. Besides sharing their love for music, Syrina Sound has been founded to promote the contributions of women to the world of reggae and dub music.

★ Dubophonic ★ The Cypriot label provides its listeners since 2013 with quality dub music. Through artists not only from Cyprus and Greece, but from all around the world (Dub Caravan, Shaky Norman, Professor Skank, Haji Mike, Med Dred, Mexican Stepper are just a few of them), the label is defining its own sound in dub music, exploring the outermost borders of dub music by combining the roots of reggae, the digital vibes of the new century and the ethnic sounds of world music in one big vibration.

[DPH026] Eter Dub - In Da Name Of Jah


[DPH026] Eter Dub - In Da Name Of Jah / Dubophonic[DPH026] Eter Dub - In Da Name Of Jah / Dubophonic
Cat. Nr.: [DPH026]
Artist: Eter Dub
Title: In Da Name Of Jah
Genre: Dub, Reggae, Fusion
Country: Argentina
Release date: 22/10/2016

Eter Dub was founded by the dub master Federico Balza, in Mendoza (Argentina).  The project was floating around the air for some years until the first works came out in 2015 through a self-release called "JaH-Fi". Federico Balza (flute/sax) is a graduated musician from the Universidad Nacionalde de Cuyo with studies on classical flute and member of the Orquesta Sinfonica Juvenil (1st flute) in Argentina. As saxophonist (tenor/alt), flutist and keyboard player he collaborated with many reggae, dub and hip-hop bands like Zona Ganjah, Downbeat and Negritage touring around the underground scene of Latin America (Argentina, Bolivia, Colombia, Brazil).

Eter Dub offers a new fresh breeze in dub music. His sound cannot be framed into one genre. It is definitely dub, but with references not only to his classical musical studies but also into jazz, which is his second nature. Each composition offers originality and an alternative approach to dub music. From the “linguistical” approach on Hand Of Jah, to the slow and wild “Ras-Sax”, from the funk-jazzy “Jah Trax 5” to the adventurous “Jah Jah Love”, all seven tracks of the EP build a new concept of dub music.

Special thanks to Martin Musso and Richman Fyah for the guitars on this release, El Vignold for the awesome cover art and Salvator & Viento Zondub for the inspiration. Be prepared for something different.
