Munay Ki Dub is an electronic dub trio, representing a new breed of dub artists.

The name comes from the South American Quechua language and means “I Love Dub”. 

In September 2019, Munay Ki Dub released their debut EP “MKD” with  Dubophonic Records, lyrically using the English and Spanish languages as a form of political expression and social awareness/consciousness, musically gliding between digital roots reggae, dub & bass and steppa. Within the first few weeks of its release, MKD was sounding out on radios in Argentina, Peru, Mexico, Italy, Spain, UK, Ireland, Israel, Hawaii, Finland, Belgium, Cyprus, Greece, Turkey, Germany, Holland, France, Australia, Canada and the US.
