Forward thinking dub is the ethos of this highly collaborative future stepper from Scrub A Dub Records. US production duo Alter Echo & E3 have linked up with Bristol’s Ishan Sound to create an awe- inspiring warrior stance anthem. Ah Mi Guide features a hypnotic sample from Rider Shafique, over an unrelenting beat crafted by E3 and Ishan then mixed in dub by Alter Echo. The flipside remix comes via ascendant dubstep producer Egoless, who transforms the stark original into a slow burning fire, garnished with a flourishing flute refrain. Either side is guaranteed to shake up and mesmerise a dance!

Ghori from D-Operation Drop is a driving soundsystem roller with a low swung beat crushed through 80’s sci-fi algorithms and burnt onto analog tape. On the flip is Natty coil, one of the crew’s most requested tracks, a masterful mix of organic bass and robotic shuffled hi hats from these mix scientists.
D-Operation Drop are a crew from Italy who gravitated around their love of bass, releasing music on labels such as Artikal, Lion Charge, Zam Zam and Moonshine, gaining support from the likes of J:Kenzo, N Type, Bukez Finezt, and Dj Madd.

Soulquencies is a perfect harmony of deconstructed soundsystem music. Beautifully rebuilt with ambient textures, it hints towards grime and steppers while all the time melodious, musical and underpinned with bass weight. It perfectly transcends from clean and heavenly harmonies to bass pressure and grit – icy to warm in a masterful way.
This is the first full length album on Scrub a Dub and we couldn’t be prouder of this piece of music, which is equally at home on a hi-fi or a soundsystem.
Soulquencies is the brand new album from the artist Aquarius, a classically trained musician from Tokyo who cut his teeth in the music industry in Glasgow in the early noughties. He hosted some of the city’s frst dubstep nights bringing artists like Silkie and Goth Trad, and taking small basement sessions into the bigger clubs, supporting Mala at the Art School. He played at some of the frst Outlook festival parties and was a trusted tour engineer for Mungo’s Hi Fi Soundsystem, before returning to Tokyo where he distilled his experiences and musical vision into this project.
Release Date: 8th December 2017
Topping off 2017, Scrub a dub has signed two hot new producers with some fresh Soundsystem weapons.

These tracks are already gaining support from VIVEK, Coki, Bukez Finest, Mungo’s Hi Fi and many more.
With only 500 copies pressed, here’s one 12" not to sleep on.
a. Somah – Rollin dub
b. JSM – King of kings
Released 3rd February 2017
Ltd single-sided 180g 12" Vinyl. If you have heard Kahn & Neek's Fabric mix you will know this tune. It started appearing in their sets early this year and brings a level of darkness to Charlie P's vocal pitching it down to about 3 semitones away from hell. Combined with JD's deep instrumental it becomes a melancholic masterpiece. Catch the limited onesided press before it vanishes.

Released 14th October 2016
