[DPH021] DownBeat dub - ElectrorgánicoArgentina strikes again! From the province of Mendoza comes DownBeat dub, a four member live band with a twist! Emi Bless (Drum & SetLive), Jah Sound (Bass & Synth), Coco (Guitar) and Eter Dub (Keys & Brass) are mixing organic sounds with some heavyweight dubwise business. "Electrorgánico" is the name of their first digital release on Dubophonic. Half organic and half electronic, Latin America is cultivating indeed some serious dub vibes and is establishing itself in the world dub map!

"Electrorgánico" is also the name of their style, the result of their passion and commitment to explore dub music and introduce some new musical paths. The four musicians from Argentina are passionate and dedicated to the study and live performance of dub music. Their album is an amalgamation of many elements: analog meets digital, organic meets electronic, ethnic meets dub.

Starting with Coco's guitar healing the nation, the journey continues with some funky dub sounds leading to an inside upliftment. Only to pause for some inspiration through the musically artistic interludes, admiring the view from the high mountains of Aconcagua, the journey continues in an everlasting musical creation. You are invited to join the journey and be a part of their world.

Next Dubophonic release by Downbeat Dub


Argentina strikes again! From the town of Mendoza comes Downbeat Dub, a four member band (drum, bass, guitar & keyboards) mixing organic sounds with some heavyweight dubwise business. Half organic and half electronic, they are preparing their first digital release on Dubophonic titled "Electrorganico", which will be out for free download in May 2015. Latin America is cultivating indeed some serious dub vibes and is establishing itself in the world dub map! After Negritage, Mexican Stepper and Rebel-I, Downbeat Dub is the latest this continent has to offer on our label (not counting artists like The Dubbstyle, Mr Mefistou, which were represented in previous compilations). So hold tight family!

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!
