After the success of the latest release by Samson Sounds, DubCombe Records sticks around the block to discover one more talent that Glasgow has to offer. Argentinian-Scottish naturalized, MAXIROOTS joins forces with the Edinburgh based independent dub label to present his first solo EP ‘See No Light”. It is with great pleasure that we are presenting here a first taste of this exciting new release, available from the 1st of MARCH on DubCombe Records
“Maxi Roots here presents a diverse EP of full-frequency electronic dub, influences from electronica & bass music can be heard alongside old-skool dub, all mixed up dark and deep to great effect. Looking forward to hearing more from this promising new producer. BIG UP!!!”
Born in Buenos Aires Maxi has been involved in many different projects both as bass player and sound engineer for a number of years. Following his move to Glasgow in 2008, he started one of the most successful reggae/dub bands in Scotland – The Mezzanine Allstars (former Captain Slackship’s Mezzanine Allstars). He has since shared stages with legends such as Lee Scratch Perry, Toots and the Maytals, The Wailers, and Jimmy Cliff among others. Over the past six years, Maxi’s deep involvement in the Scottish dub scene gave him opportunity to engage with few of the names he always considered great influences of his style, names of the caliber of Mungos Hi Fi, Vibronics and Zion Train to name a few. This lead to a sick addiction for the BASS (and it’s not just the instrument we are talking about!).
This was of great inspiration, encouraging Maxi to move into production and forge his own sonority under the name MAXIROOTS. Following nearly three years of preparation and road testing around Scotland, Maxitoos finally sees his first solo EP – See No Light – taking shape and form with DubCombe Records, an independent net label from Edinburgh/Rome, dedicated to those who love Dub music and its derivatives.
