Dreadlock Tales meets Tree of Dub – Seeker 7″ + Noohim live dub

This 7″, almost brand new from Dreadlock Tales and Tree of Dub is not your average dub. This one has a strong and fresh nordic forest vibe to it and uplifts the mind and soul in a psychedelic-techno-meditation style.

And as a bonus from Dreadlock Tales, a free download of Noohim Dub, a very meditative live dub mix.

DubRaJah – Enkang (free dl!)

Found this nice ethno/afro-influenced EP by Russian DubRaJah from the internets by first stumbling upon the Dub-O-Phonic Netlabel. My favourite track is Zanzibar Dub which features no other than the Mad Professor. Download your very own digital copy from Bandcamp.

«DubRaJah» is a project of Sergey Gabbasov, a Russian anthropologist and ethnomusicologist, specialized in the peoples of East Africa and Indonesia and student of “Dhow Countries Music Academy” (Zanzibar, Tanzania). He has made many ethnographical expeditions in different parts of Africa, Asia and Europe, produced several films about indigenous peoples and studied their native music. This is his first release on Dubophonic.

“Enkang” means “homestead” in Maasai language. Maasai is one of the very few tribes who have retained most of their traditions, lifestyle and lore. “Enkang” is also the name of DubRaJah’s EP, which was recorded in the period from Autumn 2013 till Summer/Autumn 2014 in Arusha (Tanzania), Stone Town (Zanzibar, Tanzania), Wete (Pemba, Tanzania) and Moscow (Russia). DubRaJah fuses a deep digital dub style with traditional African melodies and chants from the people of Maasai, Datooga, Hadza, Pemba and Zanzibar, incorporating also samples of Mad Professor on “Eyasi Dub” and “Zanzibar Dub”. Each track has is own magic, from the ritual chants in “Laibon” to the mystical beauty of the “Ngezi” forest, cleansing the body, the mind and the soul. – source

JahYu – Lineage of the Sun (FREE DL!)

A massive album by JahYu (fb, soundcloud)! An excellent blend of oriental vibes, big stepper riddims and just brutal whompathumpawubwub bass. Available for free download via Steppas!

JahYu: the Korean word for ‘freedom’, this is an artist whose music is rooted in the notion of freedom, freedom of sound, freedom of expression, freedom from mind and freedom of the soul. JahYu uses his creative freedom to connect directly with his ancestors and create music that somehow transports the listener through time and space. Oriental flute and string melodies slide effortlessly amongst powerful roots-based dubstep, creating a sound that is unique and full of flavour. This Korean-German producer blends both sides of his heritage, the digital steppers that emerged from Europe in the 1990’s alongside the traditional oriental music of his mother’s homeland, Korea, augmented by a deeper exploration of contemporary bass music. – JahYu-fb
