Bass music meets roots culture in debut EP from Californian producer Dubamine.
Dub-Stuy Records welcomes ​ Dubamine to its ranks. Hailing from Santa Cruz, CA, the young producer has been active since 2009 with a series of digital-only releases. 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.
