Dreadwise Music is proud to present: Bukkha: “Back To Roots” An instrumental 4 track 10” single + Digital release. Featuring live Sitar by Lance Hume and live Flute by Don Fe.
By now the name Bukkha should be synonymous with quality productions and heavyweight dub sounds. Releasing on labels such as: Lion Charge, Zam Zam and System Music. Hot on the heels of his debut album on Moonshine Recordings. Dreadwise Music brings you “Back To Roots” an exploration of world sounds and dub.
A-side: “Sitar Cut” Showcases multi instrumentalist Lance Hume, as he skillfully weaves a mystical tapestry of nimble and expressive playing over the deep, earthy, 140 sub bass riddim that Bukkha crafts. Laden with percussive nods to India, dark synthy drones and a bright steady skank. “Sitar in Dub” is as hypnotic as it is heavy, a soundscape constantly being peppered by an ever changing array of echos and colour. B-side: “Flute Cut” features the superb Don Fe, playing joyful quick phrases accompanied by the warm reverb of picked guitar. While the moody Dub Version “Flute in Dub” takes us back down the dub rabbit hole, building slowly and then lurching ever forward dripping in echo and atmosphere!
Cut and Mastered by Beau at the legendary Ten Eight Seven Mastering. “Back to Roots” is a serious slab of pure heavyweight Dub goodness. A plate no self respecting head can be without. This is the 5th release from Dreadwise Music, a contemporary Dub label based in Nottingham UK. Focused on pushing a sound steeped in world music and Jazz whilst maintaining a dark Dub sensibility.

Dreadwise Music is proud to present: Massive Dub Corporation, “Time Collapse” & “Vent Solaires” with 2 heavyweight remixes from Digid and Dubbing Sun. Taken from the second studio album (The Event Horizon) by French Dub sensation Massive Dub Corporation. Both feature tracks on this 12” breath new life into the realms of dub and jazz with MDC's unique blend of electronic squelch and soundscapes, coupled with a musicianship un-matched and un-paralled within the current Dub landscape.
A-side: Time Collapse enters with a rough bass line, led by effervescent horns and an infectious growling groove while Dubbing Sun and Digid on remix duty take the track to the next level, with an absolute monster steppas version that rattles and thunders ever forwards, all the while maintaining skankability. Sure to rattle a few speaker boxes!
B-side: Vent Solaires is much gentler on approach, opening with a fuzzy distorted sound, giving way to a mellow marimba and then into some solo horn adventures which see us tumble up, down left and right before finally touching down back to earth on this wonderful musical journey. Digid and Dubbing Sun fail to disappoint yet again offering a remix that's as haunting as it is heavy.
Cut and Mastered at the legendary Stardelta, this 12” hits hard sonicaly from start to finish, a serious piece of wax for the forward thinking head and Muso alike. This is the 4th offering from Dreadwise Music, a vinyl only label based in Nottingham UK, focused on pushing a sound steeped in world music and Jazz while maintaining a dark Dub sensibility.
