Weeding Dub feat. Iration Steppas & Ras Divarius

Weeding Dub feat. Iration Steppas & Ras Divarius

WD002_POCHETTETwo tracks from Weeding Dub LP “Still Looking For” (http://dubmassive.org/en/12008/weeding-dub-still-looking-for) have been selected for this 12” and the choice could not be other than these ones – “Gypsy Dub” and “Sound System DNA”.  The former with very catchy violin part comes with two additional dub versions. The latter is a real sound system anthem with crucial words of Mark from Iration Steppas about sound systems. This killa tune perfectly suited for a session comes with another, wild version with very fast beat for mad dancing and it lasts 8 minutes (!), during which a lot of effects is coming in and out.

Big tunes.

And remember – Sound System is a DNA thing!

Dub Temple #74 – report

Dub Temple #74 – report

dt74foraAfter a long break Weeding Dub appeared in Cracow for the second time, right before the premiere of his new album ‘Still Looking For’ (my review here). This French producer is known of his great, energetic music that connects electronic, dub and often steppers rhythms.

Czech crew Dub From The Ground have been warming up the public starting with roots&culture and moving to heavy dubs after the midnight. Weeding Dub began his act around 01:00 and the beginning itself announced an intriguing set. We could hear his older tracks from singles and albums including my favourite ‘Fyah a go bun dem’ with Echo Ranks. There also were tunes from the incoming album, including this one which I’ve heard first time at Outlook Festival:





And of course this tune had to be played – the mighty voice of Mark from Iration Steppas said the truth about sound system, that it has to be a part of your DNA :). I think this track will be a killer and an anthem of more than one session.





A big plus is that Weeding Dub presents his tracks in the form of a live act, which lets you listen to known ones with new details and a bit changed form. This energetic session was finalized by ‘Judgement’ with Inja.

I have to admit that the French producer has a lot to show – some of the tunes are pure dance floor killers. He also knows well how to present them and make us of dub effects – here Weeding Dub is following the path of such dub live act masters like Dj Perch from Zion Train.

Weeding Dub – “Still Looking For”

Weeding Dub – “Still Looking For”

Weeding-Dub-Still-Looking-For-Cover2 years after “Inna Digital Age” French producer Weeding Dub came back with a new album. “Still Looking For” is a continuation of the style that he got us to know himself from the best side – a combination of electro-steppers with UK dub sound. When you add great arrangements coming out of well-worn schemas and good singers you Weeding-Dub-photo-vertic-by-Qwestget a very energetic mixture. The least interesting tune of the album for me is the calmest ‘Love’ with Parvez who doesn’t seem to fit at all here. However, Little R sounds much more interesting on the same riddim. In general, singers with a good flow plus Weeding Dub riddims is a very good conjunction – for example ‘Check Yourself’ with Oulda, ‘Free’ with Inja or Demilition Man. The arrangement side is very rich, there are a lot of details and great instrumental parts, that can be heard since the very first tune with a beautiful violin sound by Ras Divarius; ‘Shadow Soldiers’ sounds like an action movie soundtrack!

I left one tune for the summary – ‘Sound System DNA’ with amazing Mark from Iration Steppas and his speech. Ain’t much to say here – this tune is an absolute killer soundsystem anthem, period. It’s also the best signature of this great album.

WEEDING DUB ( Lille, Francja)

Mieszkający w Lille światowej sławy producent dubowy łączący ducha muzyki roots z nowoczesną elektroniką. Na scenie szerzej znany od 2004 roku, gdy po wydaniu licznych singli w kilku labelach stał się jednym z najbardziej innowacyjnych i rozpoznawalnych artystów olbrzymiej francuskiej sceny dub, a piętnaście kawałków z jego ostatniego albumu tylko utwierdziło jego pozycję jako czołowego dubowego producenta epoki. W swojej muzycznej marce, sound systemowej estetyce oraz „undergroundowej” etyce Weeding Dub zawiera wszelkie wpływy nowoczesnego reggae. W jego innowacyjnej twórczości początek maja bardzo taneczne utwory będące połączeniem digitalnego reggae i cieżkich dub steppersów. Styl artysty to zarówno klasyka jak i nowoczesne technologiczne wpływy czerpiące inspirację z jamajskich korzeni, a zarazem z bardziej współczesnych brzmień. Muzyczna pomysłowość jak i świetne aranżacje są doskonałym tłem dla siedmiu wokalistów uczestniczących w jego ostatnim LP ‘Inna Digital Age’ wyprodukowanym dla szerszej publiczności trafiając w gusta zarówno czystych rootsmanów jak i miłośników ciężkich, elektronicznych steppa dubów. Po ponad dziesięciu latach nieprzerwanej aktywności, niezliczonych koncertach na całym świecie, a przede wszystkim klimatem ostatniego albumu pokazuje, że jest brakującym ogniwem pomiędzy muzyką Mad Profesora a Zion Train.

Na dwóch koncertach w Polsce we Wrocławiu oraz Krakowie artysta zaprezentuje głównie materiał z nadchodzącego nowego albumu, który wkrótce ujrzy światło dzienne!

Skank Lab #3 – Dawa Hi Fi/Weeding Dub (12”)

27b09a8d05900949328eacd0349e8194Once again our musical journey leads to France, this time due to a sound laboratory Skank Lab – an initiative promoting French dub artists, where they confront two chosen dubheads. The A side of their newest laboratory experiment is “Bad Boyz In The Street” produced by Dawa Hi Fi, but mixed and dubbed by Weeding Dub. On the B side roles are inverted – “Mass Mental” by Weeding Dub is mixed and dubbed by Dawa Hi Fi. Musically we get essence of French dub – both artists know how to make massive steppers!

PS. This one is the 3rd piece of amazing musical meetings. Previous releases includes collaboration of Full Dub & OnDubGround and Mahom & Panda Dub.

Dubquake Records presents: Weeding Dub&O.B.F. (12”)

Dubquake Records presents: Weeding Dub&O.B.F. (12”)

front cover dubquake rec001To celebrate the Dubquake event, which takes place in Geneva since 2006, OBF Sound System decided to launch his own label to release songs that have been “tested” there. For a start we have Weeding Dub with vocalist Inja in a track entitled “Judgment” (known also from the Weeding Dub longplay) – it is a powerful tune embedded in a French dubs esthetics with Inja’s rap, which on the one hand, adds to its speed, but with the other may not suit taste of listeners, who like more melodic dubs. The other side of the 12” belongs to the originators O.B.F. – “Echo dub” is a solid, 12-ton roller to mash up the dance floor and was many times tested on Dubquake. If you like “Forward dub”, you will love this tune.

Weeding Dub – album “Inna Digital Age” soon available

Weeding Dub - Inna Digital Age

A lot of dub lovers can recognize Weeding Dub from France. That producer born in Lille is renowned for many interesting productions and collaborations – lately we wrote about his 12″. On 7th of october there will be available his newest longplay titled “Inna Digital Age” in the shops. It will include 15 tunes kept in modern dub stylistics with roots basis – it’s nice to hear that the artist doesn’t try to hide digital nature of the tracks, but finds balance in them. The release also unveils the versatility of the producer – we can find on it fast digital tunes (“Believe In YRSLF” with Little R or crazy “Judgment remix” with hiphop-ish toasting by Inja), classic digital steppers (“Jah Set You Free” with Diana Levi or “Fyah A Go Bun Dem” with Echo Ranks) and even contemplative tunes like “Rootikal Road” with Fu Steps, “African Step” with beautiful winds by Houseman Horns or a great guitar ballad “Brick by Brick” sung by Madu Messanger. Besides the tunes with vocals we get ofcourse classic dub versions and miscellaneous instrumentals – heavy dub lovers will like “Dub For Gaza” especially.
To sum up – a great, varied album, that shows creativity and versatility of the producer.
