Dub Champions Festival Europe 2015 lands in Vienna, Linz, Amsterdam: 5-14 February

Dub Champions Festival Europe 2015





Follow as it unfolds: Website | Facebook | Twitter | #DubChampions on Instagram

Subatomic Sound presents the 3rd annual Dub Champions Festival Europe, a journey into the international musical phenomenon called “dub.” Characterized by heavy bass, drums, and the copious use of effects, producers become the artists and the mixing board becomes an instrument with this Jamaican art form.  The festival features both performances & educational workshops to exhibit how the music is created and has evolved from its 1970s, reggae roots to become a cornerstone of electronic bass music. Dub has also inspired countless genres from rap to rock to punk to dance music, and in the process has redefined the role of producer as artist. Advance ticket links for all events on the festival site and Facebook events for all 9 shows and workshops.


Dub Champions Festival was founded in New York City by Subatomic Sound, and is dedicated to featuring the world’s greatest dub pioneers from Jamaica to every continent worldwide.  Our goal is to build a global network of artists and event promoters across generations who are committed to educating, preserving, and pushing forward the sound and tradition of dub music through high quality music and events. The European festival is produced in cooperation with our committed friends and family from Dubblestandart, Bunfire Squad, True Soldiers Productions, RAW, SubPac, and Dubspot.

Lee “Scratch” Perry & Subatomic Sound System “Black Ark Vampires” limited edition 45 vinyl

SS029  Lee Scratch Perry & Subatomic Sound System  "Black Ark Vampires" vinyl 7" 45

UPDATE New mixes also available 3/18/2016 on Black Ark Vampires digital EP.

Lee “Scratch” Perry & Subatomic Sound System “Black Ark Vampires” limited edition vinyl 45 debuted Nov. 4. 2014 on Juno Records, #1 in dub, #1 in reggae, and broke the top #100 in all music before selling out on the site (more copies on the way).  It premiered for Halloween on Brooklyn based Jamaican culture site Large Up  and received an overwhelming response.  Buy it directly from Crosstalk Distribution (US), Juno Records (UK) (who ship worldwide), Jetset (Japan) and many other fine record stores around the globe.

On “Black Ark Vampires”, Lee “Scratch” Perry & Subatomic Sound System have crafted a throbbing sound-man tune propelled by subsonic bass, bubbling skanks, and pulsing beats that balance the murky and mystical vibes of Perry’s classic Jamaican dub reggae recordings with the flammable energy and subsonic vibrations of current electronic bass music, fine tuning a recipe that they have slow cooked throughout their last four years of U.S. tours spreading authentic dub to a new generation in places like Coachella, Dub Champions Festival, and Red Bull Music Academy.
