Hermit Dubz: The elusive dub hermit, often unseen, toiling away in his hermit cave, meditating on low frequency vibrations. This secretive character grew up travelling the world. From an early age, the love of reggae and dub was instilled in him, and would remain his deepest love. Moving to England in the 90s as a teenager, he discovered the newly awakening electronic dance music scene and was soon DJing and creating his own sonic experiments. Over the years, the reclusive Hermit Dubz has been accumulating a horde of dub influenced sonic artefacts, and more recently building the Hermit Cave studios in Birmingham, Uk. After a long period of experimentation, isolation, meditation and contemplation, Hermit Dubz has re-emerged, ready to unleash his sonic relics.
Knati P: Musician, painter (the artwork for this release is a painting by Knati), and entertaining performer with a unique vocal style. He studied at the Jamaica School of Art, moved to Brixton, London, in the late 1980s and regularly took part in the Notting Hill festival. In the year 2000 he was voted MC of the year. He has an impressive recording/performing record (Pineapple Tribe, Jah Observer, R.D.K, Manasseh, Equalizer, Skanga International Muzik etc.) and is a much respected lyricist, vocalist and MC.
The two artists met in Surrey, UK, at a dance where Knati was performing with his local sound system, Da Vinci. They have been friends and musical collaborators ever since, and the result is some great riddims, which remained hidden in the Hermit’s cave for quite some time. We managed to get hold of some those tracks and we present them to you today in the form of an EP. “Fyah fi Babylon” consists of 3 vocal tracks and 3 blazing dubs. We hope that the bass heavy sound of Hermit Dubz and the original Jamaican voice of Knati P will be the perfect combination for your upliftment.
>>>Always with the conscious dubbing on Bass Culture Players – ‘rascal recommended’
Sin papeles’ sees the light today, 15J, day against Detention Centers for migrants. No one is illegal.
Today solidarity is rebellion and sympathy transgression. Because they break barriers built up on legality and because they are fought by authorities with violence.’Sin papeles’ (‘without papers’ in spanish) means to defy. An invitation to acknowledge that so-called other side behind that line we are not supposed to cross. What they want us to ignore and not feel as equal. ‘Sin papeles’ is revealing a truth without discretion. ‘Sin papeles’ is, in addition, an exercise of collectivity, where Diemuba Cissé’s voice brings Musta Fall and Mamadou Dia lyrics to life, riding on Bass Culture Players riddim. Music has been recorded by diverse musicians, produced by Puppa Shan and finally brought together by Alchemy Dubs mastering. ‘Sin papeles’ is not yours, nor mine. It belongs to everyone that heads the way with the conviction we are all in the same boat.

We can’t stop listening to this awesome new release from Dysphemic!!
With a beautiful story behind it, this mesmerising EP is available for free download…. Check it out below!
Dysphemic – Inter-G-Lactic
Released 19 Jan 2016
Returning with his second release on Gravitas Music, Dysphemic perfectly melds glitch hop with 1980s sci-fi soundtrack vibes on “Inter-G-Lactic”. Julian, who is better known as Dysphemic, has co-created this cosmically minded EP alongside his brother Yiani as a tribute to their father, Vernon Treweeke, who passed alway last year. Well known for his visually psychedelic paintings, Vernon was a well respected figure within the Australian and international psychedelic community; his legacy lives on through his sons and their musical memorial to his achievements.
The freshman tune “Age Of Vern” kicks things off with conscious hip hop cut fueled by classy Spanish guitar and funky yet smooth bass lines. Things get a bit heavier with the title track; well-tuned synthesis plays beautifully alongside filtered, twangy guitar riffs. Called “a tour de force of Balkan and Middle Eastern string sounds” by The Untz, “Anatoli” dips deep into an exotic aesthetic while continuing the larger aesthetic of the album. “Decompression” brings up the rear with its intricately resampled reese basses and broken, pulsing drum beat.
