[DPH014] Dubsynaticx - Studio Dubs Part 1Daniel Rossmann, better known by his stage name Dubsynaticx, was born November 1982 in Vienna, Austria.
He inherited his passion for Reggae and Dub music from his father. From an early age he was a big fan of Inner Circle, Jimmy Cliff, Desmond Dekker UB40 and many other performers from the 90s.
Daniel also began to discover and learn the synthesizer, drum machine, guitar and piano during his childhood.
He was truly inspired by the Dub mixes of Scientist, Mad Professor, King Tubby.
Daniel quickly started to create his own Dub singles.
As he was interested in developing his professional technical skills, he attended various sound engineering workshops and maintains to continue his improvement in sound engineering.
————————————————————–
—————————-
His first web album “Powerful Water Dub” debuted on the Internet in 2005 received a plethora of positive feedback from Reggae and Dub fans from all over the world.
Two years later, in 2007, he released his first official single “Sunshine Dub”.
He was involved in various projects with other great artists, among others with Madi Simmons and Sammy Gold and in 2013 Dubsynaticx launched his own Record Label “Tone-Echo Music”, under which he released in March 2014 the single “Shining Dub”.

“Studio Dubs Part 1” is Dubsynaticx’s first release on Dubophonic and is out for free download, sharing some festive Easter vibrations.

Daniel Rossman’s inspiration has always been the works of the great dub masters of Jamaican music and this is clear to hear to be heard in his work. Nevertheless, he manages to add his personal tweaks through his sound engineering skills setting his own style and striking with a 10-track dub album full of vibes.

All tracks have this retro skanking dub feeling, but still sound fresh and vibrating.

Whether it is due to the irieness of “Dubconscious”, the skanking guitar riddim of “Salt and Pepper Dub” or the heartikal singing of Madi Simmons on “Love Serenade”, the album succeeds in spreading those positive vibes in each and every way.

The inclusion of three vocal tracks in the album and the guest appearances of Sammy Gold (properly dubbed), Madi Simmons and Goldtea, definitely adds value to an already good work worth of listening.

:::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::

 

The Austrian Daniel Rossmann aka Dubsynaticx was one of the first artists that were approached by Dub Thomas back in the first half of 2013, as the netlabel was making its first steps.
It took nearly one year for Dubsynaticx to finalise this work, but at last we are able to announce its official release next Sunday, 20th of April 2014.
“Studio Dubs Part 1” is actually what the title says, a collection of old school dubs ina skanking style, which will add a great laid-back mood to your Easter holiday. 
A small oasis of retro vibes, tribute to the old kings of dub music, that shines among the mist of the digital steppa age of today … and as the title of the release implies, there will be also a part 2! Along side with him the voices of Sammy Gold, Madi Simmons and Goldtea.
Here is a track from the coming release, to get you into the mood. Enjoy some warm and sunny vibes from the “cold” Austria.

SOUNDTIPS → [DubOPhonic 011] KONCRETE ROOTS – Dub ina Midlands

KONCRETE ROOTS from ENGLAND

.…………………………..

Koncrete_Roots_front

:::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::

::::::::::::::::::::::::

The year 2014 starts with some new dubophonic heights from the Koncrete Roots, a one man project by Thomas Kenney from Leicestershire in the East Midlands of England.

From an early age Thomas would listen to a huge amount of music, though he would always favour the sounds of Ska and Reggae. Music was always in his blood and he began producing back in 2004 under a different name. The music he was making at the time was a reflection of the scene around him; hip hop and grime. It wasn’t until later in life, when he was introduced to (and fell in love with) Dub music. that he started to take his own music seriously and started to develop his own sound and style.

—–

Koncrete Roots’ style can be described as a deeply rooted dub sound with a modern day steppa twist. This twist makes all the difference and gives an electro dubness to their traditional rootical sound introducing some great vibes to the massive, as we enter into the new year.

From the meditative “River Jordan” to the rootical  electro steppas like ‘Inity Step” and “Sound Killah”, Koncrete Roots deliver their message of dubness and irieness into the year 2014.

Not withstanding his versions of two old time classics, the UK producer seems like a sound warrior, armed with deep basslines and organic melodies like in “Universal dub”, marching to destroy Babylon on his way to Zion.

DUBOPHONIC NETLABEL from CYPRUS

Artist: Various Artists (compiled by Dub Thomas)
Title: Explorations in Dub
Cat: [DPH010]
Genre: Dub/Fusion/Experimental/Electronica

Explorations-in-dub-back-web:::::::::::

……………………..

The first compilation of dub-o-phonic is a musical journey to some unknown areas of dub music.

Compiled by Dub Thomas, “Explorations in Dub” tries to find the hidden elements of dub music in musical genres, where under normal circumstances no dub is existent.

This release might not comply with the “conventional” dub reggae as we know it.

Being the tenth release of the label, Dub Thomas selects tracks with a strong experimental musical vibe, staying truthful to the future sound of the label.

The compilation includes seventeen tracks from artists scattered in the various corners of the globe, from Cyprus to the French West Indies: Daidalos One (CY), SXtheMadArtist (CY), Ras Robin Dennis (CY), Dub-I (RUS), Dub Riots (GR), Green Glow (MEX), Hernibernie (BEL), Knoto (JP), Mr Mefistou (PR), Negro Pirana (MEX), Rakoon (FR), Red Barrio (ES), Roots Dubbing Project (BRA), The Dubbstyle (ARG), Twixymillia (FWI) and Dub Across Borders (DEN).

———————————————-

—————————————-

Included in this compilation is Dub-I’s “Rididub Master” in a new extended version, serving not only as a musical flashback to our first release, but also as a starting point for the dubs to follow, while the jazz/ambient tracks of Hernibernie and SXtheMadArtist (the cover art designer of the release) are perhaps at the highest innovation point.

Knoto manages to strip a famous reggae song down to its basic beat elements keeping the melody as a sweet buzz in your head. Daidalos One offers an atmospheric intermission, Ras Robbin Denis fuses an ethnic/ambient feel, Dub Across Borders blips and clicks, Negro Pirana dubs the blues, Mr Mefistou builds up slowly a dubbed step, Green Glow steps it up, Twixymillia rewinds it, while Dub Riots, Roots Dubbing Project, The Dubbstyle, Rakoon and Red Barrio transform irie melodies into experimental dubscapes.

“Dub means experimentation with sound. From the first innovations of King Tubby to the unorthodox techniques of Lee “scratch” Perry, dub has always been evolving, influencing many of the musical genres of our century, whether these are called Hip-Hop, Electronica, Fusion or even World/Ethnic music. This is a journey into the world of dub!” – Dub Thomas

Blessed with a devotion to dub and roots culture and politicised by the inequalities that haunt a world of plenty, Red Star Martyrs have arrived as the latest incarnation of musician and producer Stanley Wood. As a member of cult Birmingham reggae outfit Route 81, Stanley learnt his trade as a guitarist and gigging musician before becoming part of guerrilla graffiti specialists and urban raconteurs Echo Base. Here he encountered for the first time th e mystical world of the recording studio and within it, the wonders of the Roland Space Echo – a love affair was born.

_______________________

___________________________________

The romance bloomed with the arrival of affordable technology, enabling those that dared to dream the chance to create their own Channel One studio.

The logical outcome for Stanley was Shotgun Rockers.

From producing original dubs for the Dub Nation sound system, Shotgun Rockers became recording artists for Zip Dog, Nubian and Tanty records at the moment when a new breed of dub was being formed, introducing the energy of European dance music to inspiration from the legends of the Jamaican dub.

Fast forward to the now and Red Star Martyrs exist as an open collective where roots and dub artists from all over the world are invited to contribute and collaborate, bringing a message of love, unity and political consciousness.

Oh yeah, and to have fun too, because roots dub music is what makes us all smile, right?

First appearance of Mrs Boo La La aka Bec Crispin on “Independence” spreading the rootical vibrations all the way.

[DPH005] Mexican Stepper: The Mad Sunday EP

:::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::
Dubophonic introduces Mexican Stepper. Born in Mexico, Yasser Serano has been into music since his childhood. His anxiety to contribute to the reggae and dub scene led him into participating in many festivals in Mexico with important recognitions. Tapping into different rhythms but mainly with stepper productions, Yasser introduces 2009 his Mexican Stepper project with the intention of creating a new dub proposal in his homeland Mexico. Little he knew that his sound would soon overcome the borders of his country and spread like a virus all around the world. Living proof of this is the willingness of many artists from all around the world to join his effort, offering their own musical interpretations on Yasser’s tune.

————————————-
Mexican Stepper’s first EP consists of the title track “Mad Sunday”, a hard stepper tune with an ethnic feel, accompanied by an ever so exiting dub cut. Just to step it up a bit more, we included some exclusive remixes by artists who were already introduced on previous releases like Dub-I (RUS) and Negritage (ARG), but also by Dubophonic newcomers Svaha Sound System (UK), Injham (FR), Mr. Lion AKA Jahstyle (CAN) and Mr Mefisto (PR).

Each track is more than just a remix. It is a brand new interpretation of the main tune with each artist reconstructing the basic tune according to his unique style. Negritage makes a dirty rough rootical stepper out of it, Dub-I transforms the hard stepper into a musical dub experiment, Mr Mefistou incorporates the revolutionary speech of the Bolivian president Evo Morales after the trouble he faced in Europe due to his pro Snowden attitude, while Injham introduces a complete recut of the tune. Big versions by BBC Introducing Artist of 2012 Svaha Sound System and the Canadian Mr. LioN
