11738134_10153187291251676_4412641233843158807_nPo raz kolejny zapraszamy Was na kolejną, tym razem 15 edycję Ostróda Reggae Festiwal. Przez 4 dni na festiwalowych scenach wystąpią dziesiątki gwiazd z różnych krańców świata. Wśród głównych headlinerów tegorocznej edycji znaleźli się między innymi: Capleton, Gentleman, Protoje czy Black Roots. (Po pełen program zapraszamy na http://www.ostrodareggae.com/line-up/.Festiwalowy maraton rozpocznie się już 6 sierpnia od koncertów w Ostródzkim amfiteatrze. Będzie można tam usłyszeć występy czołowych zespołów polskiej scenie reggae takich jak Bakshish, Vavamuffin czy Habakuk
Nie lada gratką dla soundsystemowych maniaków będzie „soundsystems’ meeting”, czyli tradycyjna już soundsystemowa rozgrzewka, która również odbędzie się 6 sierpnia w przystani „ U Ździcha”. Swoją dubową selekcję zaprezentują tam na własnych ścianach dźwięku Jah Love Soundsystem i Roots Melody Soundsystem.
Ostróda Reggae Festiwal to przede wszystkim występy na głównej scenie. Oprócz koncertów takich gwiazd jak Gentleman czy Protoje, ciekawie zapowiada się także World Reggae Contest, w którym zmierzy się pięć zespołów z różnych części świata.
Nie sposób nie wspomnieć również o Green Stage – zielonej scenie soundsystemowej. Występy na niej zostały podzielone na 3 tematyczne dni: reggae day, dancehall day i dub day. Z pewnością warto odwiedzić tę scenę każdego z festiwalowych dni, jednak my w szczególności zapraszamy oczywiście na dub day, w ramach którego wystąpią Aradub, Dub Dynasty, O.B.F. oraz Radikal Guru z gościnnym udziałem Dubdaddy i Cian Finna.
Nie zabraknie także Yellow Stage, napędzanej i dowodzonej przez Rise Up! Soundsystem. W ciągu trzech festiwalowych dni swoją selekcję zaprezentuje tam blisko 20 składów i selektorów (m.in. DHS, Jabbadub, Bass Invaders, Roots Vibracja).
Tradycyjnie w trakcie festiwalu będzie działał Uniwersytet Reggae. W jego ramach odbędzie się m.in. spotkanie z Davidem Katzem, premiera filmu dokumentalnego o Lee Scratch Perrym oraz zapowiadające się wyjątkowo ciekawie spotkanie pt „Jamajska produkcja muzyczna”, na którym Rory (Stone Love), Sam Clayton i Stephen Stewart (Harry J) opowiedzą o technicznej stronie pracy z muzyką reggae.

Wszystkie szczegóły dotyczące festiwalu znajdziecie pod adresem http://www.ostrodareggae.com

Do zobaczenia!

Tracks&Dubs feat. Paul Fox – “Warning” (Tribe 84)

Tracks&Dubs feat. Paul Fox – “Warning” (Tribe 84)

11150971_1089264821089115_3161181513976386742_n

We are very happy to share the information about the birth of a new label, dedicated to roots/dub music and related with our friends. Tribe 84 was established by Jaszol from Roots Revival and Mamba from Most High Warriah.

Everything started from a conception and willingness to release beloved music on a beloved, vinyl medium. In the same time Radek “EMZK” Ciurko and Bartosz “King DuBear” Cymes decided to join their forces in a new project called “Tracks&Dubs”. The duo has set a clear plan for their activities. Firstly the composition was made and recorded by EMZK in Something Like Studio, then the tracks were sent to King DuBear, who is responsible for dub mixing in this project. Soon after additional musicians participated – an excellent drummer Marek Sieroszewski and next – Paul Fox. This very talented vocalist from UK with an extraordinary voice without hesitation decided to sing to the music of Tracks&Dubs – he liked the riddim so much, that during 24h he wrote lyrics and recorded his vocal. The track called “Warning” was ready. Next, the paths of the project and the label has crossed and with cooperation from both sides the plan of releasing 7” vinyl was successful.

We encourage you to familiarize yourself with this tune and keep in touch with Tribe’s 84 activity, which is not limited only to Tracks&Dubs – currently they are working on a new releases and the next premiere is planned in 2-3 months.

The release will be available in the shops this week.

Dubowy Uniwersytet Reggae na Ostróda Reggae Festiwal 2014

Dubowy Uniwersytet Reggae na Ostróda Reggae Festiwal 2014

katzAs an official medial partner of Ostróda Reggae Festival we would like to invite you to an extraordinary event. In the rich schedule of the party (14-17.08) education and film projections will be present as always in the Reggae University amphitheater. One of the planned happening is a meeting with David Katz, famous British journalist and writer. On 15.08 he will present illustrated with unique multimedia lecture entitled “Dub revolution: genesis of the most impactful Jamaican musical invention”. David is an author of books “People Funny Boy: The Genius of Lee ‘Scratch’ Perry”, “Solid Foundation: An Oral History of Reggae” and “Caribbean Lives: Jimmy Cliff”. His articles and photos were published in such magazines as Mojo, The Guardian, The Independent, The Telegraph or Riddim. David releases records, chips in films, lectures on universities. His monthly DJ parties “Dub Me Always” in The Ritzy in Brixton are a firm element of London night life and he is one of the crucial reggae history specialists in the world.

Katz supported i.a. Lee Scratch Perry in Royal Festival Hall, Mad Professor in Momo’s Kemia Bar and Horace Andy, Aswad, Rico in Jazz Café. He has played with Ras Kush from Black Redemption Sound System in New Jork and Rio de Janeiro. Carried public debates with Bunny Wailer, Rita Marley, Chris Blackwell, King Jammy, Bunny Lee, Horace Andy, The Skatalities, Derrick Morgan and many others on festivals like Rototom Sunsplash and Reggae Geel. Presented scientific works about reggae on University of the West Indies on Jamaica and on universities in Brazil and Italy.
During the last sixty or more years, Jamaican popular music has rarely been in a standstill and often has been flourished with innovations of a group of involved practitioners, who has constantly been pushing it to the new tracks. Although it took a while for the outside world to notice the sounds from that Caribbean island, and even more to understand them, it’s an undeniable fact that during the last few decades Jamaica has enormously influenced the musical technique and practice all over the world. Dub appeared to be the most influential reggae subgenre. Without dub novelties of trailblazing Jamaican sound engineers and producers, rap would never become the most popular genre of popular music and various forms of dance music powered by technology probably would never be created. For sure you would not be listening to dubstep, which is popular now in many countries. So, who exactly is responsible for dub? What was the initial purpose that it served and how did it change over the time? Is dub a constant form or does it change its shape?

DuBoLoGy – Yellow Dub – new release on Paproota.org

dubYD_200x200

Our friendly netlabel paproota.org doesn’t intermit. The newest release from their stable has just surfaced – DuBoLoGy – Yellow Dub.

DuBoLoGy (dub – a technique of creating sounds + Greek: ?????, logos, „study”) – is a field of science that examines the reactions of human body, on the psychological as well as the physical level, to low-frequency sound waves and the space surrounding them. The lecture by a French dubologist presented here, which consists of eleven parts, touches upon current affairs, referring to the results of up-to-now achievements, eventually it suggests solutions which look far ahead to the future. This lecture titled “Yellow Dub” is crucial to the development of dubology, hence it is dedicated to all enthusiasts, examiners, and experts of this scientific branch. You’re welcome to ponder over it!

You can hear and download it here.
