Shaolin Dub was written and recorded by Subatomic in the downtime during the pre-production of the “Super Ape Returns To Conquer” album with Lee Scratch Perry and inspired by the mostly instrumental African jazz influenced dub reggae on the original Super Ape album but re-contextualized in a Subatomic production environment that includes both analog and digital recording & mixing technology. Additional live instrument recording was done in Brooklyn at the Bridge Studio and is documented in the EMC educational video with Subatomic Sound System on live dub mixing. “Shaolin Dub” has been performed live throughout the 2017-2019 tours but never released until now.

Vocal versions coming on a next release. Check tour dates Sept 19-29 USA & Mexico with Lee Scratch Perry.
