Dub Neurons - PsyAmb 77

Back in the matrix. Here is a mix of psychedelic dub which starts out in a effortless laid back style thanks to producers Kuba and Green Beats. It then gets gradually more and more trippy with tracks from Androcell's super new album Imbue ( recently voted best psydub album 2014 on reddit/psybient ) and Squazoid before peaking with the glorious Globular tune Dance Of The Logarithm from the Kupuri Festival vol 2 compilation. There is plenty of good psydub tunes to check out in this mix so be sure to follow up on some of the great artists involved.

We kick off with Kuba with his tune Unsinkable off the "Beneath The Trees" EP. Kuba has recently released loads of his stuff on bandcamp including a few new EPs and is due to release a new full album this year too ! A class act all the way - check him out if you are yet to do so.

A drop of Green Beats go well with a slice of Kuba I think. Both acts have a very laid back dubby vibe that oozes production genius. Victor Solsona and Xavier Jansana of Barcelona have been together for a number of years now and impressed with their debut full length album "Cosmic Turtle" back in 2012. The lads are due to release a new album this year so track them on Facebook to keep up to date on that one.

Sunshine Music For Smiling People - Kukan dUb Lagan - Review

It takes a singular vision to avoid the temptation of following the crowd. To blaze your own path in your own style is a pursuit we can respect in any artist. It's something that has always attracted me to the music of Kukan Dub Lagan a.k.a Itay Berger.

Itay has been creating his own take on dub music for the past 10 years. It's a journey that sees him mix up traditional old school dub with more modern psychedelic sounds. Nothing new there I hear you cry. And you are right - there is an entire ocean of it around to be sure. 

However there is something just that little bit peculiar, the little bit extra in his music that really catches my attention with each new album. 

It's like a peanut butter sandwich with lettuce added. You know the lettuce shouldn't be there but wha'dayaknow -  it works ! And so news of a new long player on the horizon was gleefully received by yours truly . 

Titled "Sunshine Music For Smiling People" it is presented with engaging cover art by Ronit Rozensal devoid of your typical dub cliches and sports 10 fresh new takes on the psychedelic ambient dub genre. The album contain a variety of styles from pure ambient dub to more experimental stuff and others approaching BuddhBar like chillout. With mastering by none other than Ultimae Records head honcho Vincent Villuis ( Aes Dana ) you can be guaranteed of top notch sound quality too.
