[DUB005] Hermit Dubz Ft. Knati P – Fyah Fi Babylon

Posted on 31st July 2016 by Brett Caporn (LRRecords) in dub/wise,labels,music,release promo - Tags: , , ,

 …as always; proper and good dub on dubophonic netlabel…’rascal recommended’

Cat. Nr.: [DUB005]
Artist: Hermit Dubz ft. Knati P
Title: Fyah Fi Babylon
Genre: Roots, Reggae, Dancehall, Dub
Country: Cyprus, Jamaica
Release date: 23/07/2016

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.

[FREE DOWNLOAD] Sin Papeles by Dieumba / Bass Culture Players

Posted on 19th June 2016 by Brett Caporn (LRRecords) in dub/wise,labels,make things right,remix - Tags: , , ,

>>>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.

Keep the Community in Your Radio

Posted on 11th May 2016 by Brett Caporn (LRRecords) in make things right,music,music news/stuff,must see must do,national - Tags: ,

http://www.keepcommunityradio.org.au/#_=_

The Federal Budget contains cuts of $1.4 million p.a., funding that currently keeps community radio stations broadcasting on digital in 5 capital cities. Community radio’s standing alongside public and commercial broadcasters is at risk. 

The good news is that community radio has great community support and during this election campaign we’ll be speaking up loud and clear and calling for both the Coalition and Labor to restore the funding if they win government.

Sign the petition below and we’ll make sure that both Malcolm Turnbull and Bill Shorten get your message.

Petition

Malcolm Turnbull and Bill Shorten, as a supporter of community radio I’m asking you to reinstate funding to keep community radio on digital if you win government.

Community radio serves so many Australians; from radio reading for people with a print disability to programming in the different languages spoken across our country, to Indigenous broadcasters, faith based stations, regional stations and youth stations.

Please don’t leave community radio behind.
