Dubophonic joins the 1st Netlabel Day

0 comments

1st Netlabel day // 14th July 2015
The International Netlabel Day will be organised for the first time this year, following the example of the Record Store Day, which was created back in 2007 to celebrate the record stores in the USA and the rest of the world. Independent artists and netlabels from different genres will install a new tradition and will be releasing together digital music every 14th of July, from now on!

This initiative was born in Chile thanks to Manuel Silva, from M.I.S.T. Records, and it reunites more than 50 netlabels from all over the world under one common purpose: to support the Creative Commons music and to celebrate and showcase music that is generally only digitally distributed and shared via netlabels. All genres are present: Rock, electronic, noise, ambient and many many more, free and just for you. Dubophonic will be participating in this initiative supporting the dub genre and will be represented by Koncrete Roots with one unreleased track.

The event is supported by the Cerebral Rift and all music will be uploaded on Archive.org and Free Music Archive and will be available for free on WAV and FLAC via direct download or torrent.  All this and much more activities (podcasts, live radio shows, local events, etc) will be announced soon on the Netlabel Day homepage. We hope that this initiative will grow over the years and establish itself in the vast world of digital music.

[DPH022] The Dubbstyle - Simona

[DPH021] DownBeat dub - Electrorgánico
Artist: The Dubbstyle
Title: Simona
Cat: [DPH022]
Genre: Dub, Electronica, Fusion, Dubstep
Country: Argentina
Release date: 15/6/2015

[DPH021] DownBeat dub - ElectrorgánicoThe brothers Mauro Waro Salina and Federico Bindub Salina started making their first appearances to the public five years ago, as djs in the local scene of the city of Mendoza, Argentina. Soon they started incorporating in their sets their own compositions. This happened in the middle of year 2012, when the two djs started demonstrating and promoting their own music through various events in different venues. Their sound is a mixture of trip hop, reggae and dubstep, presented to the audience in a live dubwise style.

In the late 2012 Waro decided to commit himself totally to the bass and Bindub took the role of the Dub Master.  That is how THE DUBBSTYLE was born, a live dub project from Argentina, in the spirit of the new breed of dub acts combining live sounds with the traditional on-stage dubbing. They perform as a duo in Mendoza, Valparaiso (Chile) and Cordoba.

During their live shows there is a very distinct stage presence with them dressed up as monkeys, staying anonymous to the public. Nevertheless, it is the originality of their sound their big asset. Especially during their lives, their sound enters into new dimensions with the addition of many guest musicians on drums, guitar, percussion and horns.

Although quite new in the dub scene, they have already released halfway of 2013 their first EP titled "Blood Fire", a self-release that can be downloaded for free from their own webpage. It is through that release that they were discovered by Dubophonic and were included in the compilation Explorations in Dub with the track Alive, while they also appeared on the Red Star Martyrs’ EP Time for tea serving their own recipe of Mint tea.

SIMONA is their second EP, their first on Dubophonic. It includes six brand new tracks by the Argentinian duo, juggling between trip hop beats, dubstep, traditional South America melodies and reggae, all presented in their own original dubwise style. We have included also an unreleased cut of their first track “Bloodfire”, specially reconstructed for this release, featuring Enzo Furiasse on the live trombone, properly dubbed and spaced out. With these words said, please welcome the new heavyweight dub sound from Mendoza! The Dubbstyle!

Two years Dubophonic - Forwards with The Dubbstyle

0 comments

Two years Dubophonic. Unbelievable what we have accomplished in these two years. We would not believe in our wildest dreams that the label would receive such a positive feedback from all around the world. From the first release back in June 2013 by Dub-I to the latest one by Downbeat Dub, every release was created from the heart and accepted by you with lots of love. We thank you all!

Two years of vibes, twenty one free releases and one VIP release ... and we continue into the third year with our 23rd release and with another project from Argentina. The Dubbstyle, a live dub project from Mendoza, is already known in the Dubophonic circles through their previous appearances on the label. They were featured for the first time in the 2013 compilation Explorations in Dub with the track Alive and  one year later, as part of the Dubophonic All Stars, they served their own recipe of Mint Tea on the Red Star Martyrs Time for Tea EP.

Now its time for their own release. Out for free download on the 15th June 2015, the 6 track EP will be a musical brew of Trip Hop, Reggae, Dubsteb and South American melodies, all mixed in an original dubwise style. As a special birthday present we will include also a reconstruction of Bloodfire (which was included in their first self-released EP of the same name), featuring Enzo Furiasse on the live trombone, dubbed and spaced out appropriately for this special occasion. Let the vibes flow!

Release date: 16/5/2015

[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.

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!
