Latest news » Dub Me Tender Vol 1 and 2 Out Now

'Dub Me Tender' is 14 tracks of deep 70s style dub remixes by Dubulah himself of tracks from the first two Dub Colossus albums. Packed full of blazing horns, spooky organ and rock solid rhythms the original Ethio-jazz tracks are stripped back and loaded with weighty dub-heavy grooves.

Dub Colossus is the vision of Nick Page - aka Dubulah. Dubulah first travelled to Ethiopia's capital Addis Ababa in 2006 to collaborate with musicians and explore traditional Azmari styles, 60s Ethiopian pop, Ethiojazz and 70s Jamaican dub reggae. There he came across some amazingly talented artists and Dub Colossus was born. When their first set, 'A Town Called Addis', was released back in 2008 it was hailed as one of the most inventive fusion albums of the year, with its blend of contemporary and traditional Ethiopian styles, jazz and dub reggae. This was followed by an even more varied and sophisticated album, 'Addis Through The Looking Glass', that moves the experiment on - with the Ethiopian contingent playing a greater role in the proceedings.
