You may Sit & Wonder (but we call it Dub!) Vol.2 [1979 - 2015]

• October 22nd, 2019

Still sitting and wondering? Right, so here´s the second part. Starting with the Dub version of the underground hit "Blue Eye Boy" by the sound pioneers of Renegade Soundwave. I saw them live first time at the Berlin Atonal 5 in March 1990, it was ground breaking!

Raw Stylus were part of the Acid Jazz movement and presents here their remix of the Bill Withers tune „Use me“.

The Senior Allstars from Germany play the instrumental version of the Tamlins´ „Baltimore“, Sly & Robbie did two different dub versions of it, too. The orginal song was sang by Randy Newman and of course by: Nina Simone.

Again a Senoir Allstars version, the Chosen Brothers´ „Mango Walk“, again a reggae classic, this time originated by the In-Crowd. The Bullwackie Dubwise Version was re-released by the Berlin Rhytm & Sound Crew in 1998.

Peikko & Lassi´s „Pula Dub“ seems to be a One-Hit-Wonder from Finland, the 12" was produced by Jimi Tenor.

And at last: a UB40 tune, named after a 1964 British science fiction film. Special to the movie is the use of silence to create a chilling athmosphere.

  1. Renegade Soundwave (1990) - Black Eye Boy 00:00:00

Lee “Scratch” Perry, the Upsetter - Original Dub Dadaist Speaks No Evil (1990-2019)

• April 5th, 2019

About 35 years from now I started my journey into a musical universe called "DUB". In the the summer of 1984 I met a guy, who knowed, that I was already interested in Reggae music. He told me: "You like Reggae? Okay, come to my house and I will show you something you will love." This was the first time I heard artists like Augustus Pablo, Jacob Miller, Rico Rodriguez, Deadly Headly, Aswad, Prince Far I, Pablo Gad and last (but realy not least): Lee "Scratch" Perry, the Upsetter! Thank you for opening this musical door for me, Robby!

The works of Mr. Perry can be divided in three parts:a singing carreer, and than before and after the Black Ark burned down. The first parts were showcased in a lot of compilations, mixtapes and podcasts. So it is time to pay attention to the third part, when chanting, singing and toasting are the main things.

This mix starts with one of the first Lee "Scratch" Perry / Mad Professor colaborations taken from the album "Mystic Warrior" and it´s Dub counterpart. After all the years one of my favourite albums. Followed by a Dub Syndicate tune, one of the many works with Adrian Sherwodd and the On-U-Sound crew. Over the years the Upsetter works with many musicans and producers: Pura Vida, Subatomic Sound System, Bill Laswell, Alpha Steppa or ERM, to name only a few. Some specials are on this mix tape: Sound Of Jamaica (Horns version) is taken from the bunch of extra versions, that were given to the crowdfounding members, that make the album "Back On The Controls" possible. And the teaser for the upcoming new AMS / LSP thing: "Rainford".

His lyriks are pure Dadaism: sometimes strange, but most of the time more a Mystic Warrior than a Bad Boy.

So, here´s the playlist:

  1. Lee "Scratch" Perry & Mad Professor - Mystic Warrior [1990] 00:00:00
  2. Lee "Scratch" Perry & Mad Professor - Mystic Warrior Dub [1990] 00:03:27

Electric Darkness in Dub Vol. 6 (the slow, the deep & the heavy)

• April 22nd, 2018

Two tracks lead the way to this mix tape: the Dubtechno sound of Babe Roots and the Sylvan Morris dub mix of  African Star´s "They Just Can't Stop Us".

Perfect, to be the crystallization points for a new episode of the Electric Darkness series. Get ready for a spacy blend of Dubtechno, Ambientdub, Jungeldub, Dubstep and, of course, pure Dub from 1984 to 2017.

Tack>>Head - One Thousend Overdubs

• October 28th, 2017

When Funk turns Dub turns Industrial turns Dub turns Funk, then you are here: TACK>>HEAD! A band that fascinates me since the late 80s...

"Tackhead was created when bassist Doug Wimbish, guitarist Skip McDonald and drummer Keith Leblanc, the SugarHill Records house band (and one of the electro funk most recorded rhythm section) met english dub master and On-U sound boss Adrian Sherwood in 1984.
First under the moniker Fats Comet then Tackhead, they have recorded experimental 12" singles, using sampler as a real instrument, mixing dub, funk and industrial music. In 1989, vocalist Bernard Fowler joined the band into a less underground direction.
Tackhead was also a backing band for Mark Stewart or Gary Clail." (taken from www.discogs.com)
