This is the second release on A Quiet Bump netlabel, for the Berlin based Italian duo Daniele Antezza and Giovanni Conti, aka Dadub. It’s a 4-track EP, centered around opne track, but it has the usual A Quiet Bump vibe: stripped down, “less is more” dubby goodness.
The main track is “Keep on Struggle”, which has a deeply chilled dub groove overlaid with melodica by Ivan Antezza and vocals by Stefano Fusillo. “Dub on struggle” is unsurprisingly a dubwise interpretation that retains the same well spaced vibe. “Keep on struggle (Melodica version)” dispenses with the vocals entirely and allows improvised melodica to take centre stage and take charge. “No struggle” is a remix featuring AQBMP stable-mate, Peak, with a white-noise inspired version.
You know what you’re getting when you download A Quiet Bump releases, and for me, that is quality, minimalist, chilled and expertly crafted dub. I commend this release to you! Irie.
So come all ye roots, dub and D&B lovers and enjoy the new album the ever excellent Dubmatix….out now!

Dubmatix is back with more ribcage-rattling reggae -I’m predicting the artist who won the Juno last year for Best Reggae Recording is going to bag the award again.

It’s been confirmed that the ReggaeDubWise.com community has closed down. This is a real shame, not just for the listeners of my podcasts, who have enjoyed the music, not just for the dubsters that have used the community for sharing, improving and help each other with their music, but also for the Carl Horton, and Rob Connelly who have given so much to make it work.
Carl is suffering from cancer and Rob has lost a close friend, a relationship and even his home during 2009. Regardless of your faith or your views, please spare a thought for these guys today and pray that 2010 will be a better year for them.

If you like my podcasts then you will undoubably have heard me play Alionsonny at some stage. He’s always given away over 100 pieces of music for free over the years and has been a great character in the dub communities. I’ve never met him personally, but feel he’s part of a great community of dub lovers.
He’s in trouble at the moment, and needs our help. Read more about his predicament at Reggaedubwise, and if you can help him out, then please consider donating, using the button below.
