Pure, distilled Dub. Upholding Jamaica’s legacy as well as Germany’s unequivocally influential Dub Techno spirit, Moonshine Recordings proudly welcomes their next addition to the roster. On the controls for the 9th full-length album release, a true-to-the-roots, all-analogue musician: Another Channel. Having put himself on the map with releases on Soukah’s Blacksoil Records, Bristol’s Transient Audio as well as on Australian imprint Modern Hypnosis, it’s now time for the album release, we’ve all been waiting for. No computer involved as impeccable arrangements and analogue reverberations unfold. Live and direct in the original Dub mixing fashion, the Augsburg-based artist uniquely transports the sonic characteristics of Rhythm & Sound into the present time.
Subtle vinyl crackles gently introducing meditative beats, ‘Run Dub’ sets the pace. Keen listeners find themselves embedded in lively echoes and reverbs, left to bask in smooth, sonic contemplation. Engineered to soothe the soul, timeless foundation sound. Intensified groove meets low-frequency pressure in ‘Amir Dub’ among haunting melodica fragments. ‘(Yes!) Badness’ unsheathes its off-kilter swing, vocal and foley samples musing in the distance - further showcasing Another Channel’s technical prowess. Heavy chord stabs and delicate overdrive counterpoint the immense scope of conjured space in ‘Ael Na Dub’, concluding a beautiful A-Side.
Lush chords lure us to the flip-side - ‘Solid’ kicks off with a staccato bass-line in the midst of lavish white noise surges and minimal drums. Rooted in endless feedback trails, steadily kept in check. Previously teased, the mighty ‘Ethiopian Dub’ steps through in full glory, carried by militant drum motion and forceful low-end. On a more spacious excursion, ‘Uranus’ takes a brightly lit stroll through the analogue Dub universe, led on by Another Channel’s signature groove propulsion. Pointing back towards A-Side, prolific Dub proponent Babe Roots presents his musical qualities in a monumental remix of ‘Run’.

Dub-Stuy Records welcomes a new artist to its ranks, California’s Dubamine. The young producer has been active since 2009, with a string of digital-only releases, and String Up The Sound marks his vinyl debut with four tracks that trace direct links between roots, reggae, hip-hop, and bass music. The EP features the vocal talents of Jamaica’s Blackout JA, London’s Brother Culture, a long-standing voice in the sound system community, and DC-based Carlton Livingston, a Jamaican legend best known for his work with the Greensleeves and Jah Life labels. String Up The Sound is a meeting of styles and generations.
The EP’s three vocal tracks -- ‘Nicodemus’, ‘String Up The Sound’, and ‘Good Morning Jamaica’ -- offer sureshot summertime anthems with memorable hooks over production that blends the best of DMZ’s eyes-down philosophy with vocal-driven contemporary dub reggae in the vein of Mungo’s Hi Fi. The release is completed by the instrumental ‘Murda Style’, a subtle and powerful forward riddim inspired by dub techno and a minimalist aesthetic reminiscent of Rhythm & Sound. This debut by Dubamine combines bass weight, legendary voices, and sound system aesthetics to please multiple generations of bass-loving fans.
