Dub Champions: Rolling


Originally released as a continuous mix CD, the way it was performed at the parties, now scoop it digitally as individual tracks on Beatport(temporarily missing Kingston Sirto track), iTunes, Juno, or Spotify.

A live dub weekly party and musical project founded by Emch of Subatomic Sound System and Andrew Carras, Dub Champions transformed what was once confined to the studio — the Jamaican dub reggae production style of the 1970s — into a dynamic DJ soundsystem for the here and now.
