DUB AS A WEAPON – “ARMED & DANGEROUS” LP (JUMPDUB085LP) – OUT OF PRINT

Brooklyn’s DUB IS A WEAPON has been on the fast track over the past few years, recently becoming LEE SCRATCH PERRY’s permanent backing band. These two superpowers clashed throughout 2006 with a sold out tour of the West Coast and Canada, and were the talk of the town at this year’s SXSW. Although many fine musicians have performed within the ranks of DUB IS A WEAPON, two men have been the catalysts since day one: DAVE HAHN, a man who has traveled the world as a guitarist with Continue reading DUB AS A WEAPON – “ARMED & DANGEROUS” LP (JUMPDUB085LP) – OUT OF PRINT

2006’s Chicago Massive was perhaps a bridge too far for the Drastics, a sprawling two-CD set that, while eminently entertaining, was at times a study in excess. Waiting, in contrast, returns the group to their roots, a sharp, tight set that’s a potent reminder of the band’s power to thrill. Every number within is a fascinating aural journey, with Anthony Abbinanti‘s studio wizardry as crucial to the trip as the Continue reading THE DRASTICS “WAITING” CD (JUMP079)

THE DRASTCS have set the world a blaze with their unique style of heavy roots dub reggae, taking inspiration from past masters (King Tubby, Lee Scratch Perry, Augustus Pablo) and blending in afro-beat, jazz, hip-hop, dancehall, and R&B. Formed in 2003 from the ashes of rock-steady soulsters The Zvooks, The Drastics quickly made a name for themselves with the release of their 2005 debut album “Premonition”, featuring guest vocalists and musicians from Chicago (Vandell Harris, Prince Gonzalez), Boston (Westbound Train members and Craig Continue reading THE DRASTICS “CHICAGO MASSIVE” 2xCD / 12″ EP (OUT OF PRINT) – (JUMP076)
