Dub Section – One Track Every Friday

After working on a number of varied projects from folk music to experimental soundtracks I finally turned my attention to finishing off a pure dub album that I started pulling together a couple of years ago.

Encouraged by a decent collaboration with musician producer friend, Johnno Casson – we co-produced the track, Live It Up by Walken400, which went down very well with Tom Robinson on his BBC 6Music show back in 2020, I became determined to finish off this project.

After a few sporadic lurches: choosing a collection of old songs, stripping out vocals and instruments, putting them back together and then running them through some outboard gear I finally have come to what will be my fourth studio album, Dub Section. I am going to release one track from it every Friday for the next twelve weeks, starting today leading up to a release date in January. You can listen to Power Vacuum now.

Twelve wee dub gems pulled from the archive, mashed to a pulp and reformulated. Full of saturation, swirling phase, big reverberation and messed up repeats it’ll be, I hope, a delight to the dub afficionado and anyone who, like me, is a fan of; The Scientist, King Tubby, Lee Perry, Mad Professor, Linval Thompson and Dennis Bovell.

Expect a full release in January 2024.
