Dub has long since emancipated himself from his Jamaican fathers and so did the second Dub-Generation of the UK steppers is about to retire. In the meantime, many small home studio frickers have taken the helm and are tinkering with sometimes inclined, sometimes neat quilting Dubs. As we all know, France is way ahead, but if you look closely you can see that we are no less creative here in Germany Dub- have a scene - which, however, prefers to work more in secret. So it takes courageous curators who go on a search, align their seismographs with subsonic bass waves and record offbeat weather. Two of them are based in Hamburg: Nicolai Beverungen, Echo Beach label boss and Karsten Frehe, one of the operators of the Irieites website. They both worked together on Chapter 2 four years ago. At "King size Dub - Reggae Germany Downtown - Chapter 3 " (Echo Beach), however, Karsten has taken over the direction. “When making the selection, it was clear from the start that the German DubScene should be depicted as diverse as possible, ”he explains. “In addition to gathering well-known strategists like Felix Wolter, Aldubb, The Senior Allstars, Umberto Echo and others, it was important to me to look for new faces and sounds. "Okay, let's hear who Karsten discovered:" For example Brian May aka Beam Up, whom I really like guess. He has a new one Dub of his first-class tune “Hanabi Dub“Contributed. Or Irie Worryah from Detmold, who has been attracting attention for years with his fresh remixes. Eddie Domingo and Jah Schulz have recently come into my focus. Eddie Domingo comes from the Irieites environment. He has been working in silence for years and with "Dub Coming “feat. Italee a great one takeDub laid down. Interestingly enough, in his "Dubrise “does without the offbeat. Still, the tune pumps a lot for my ears. I was also blown away by the Frost & Wagner production with Tetrack “In These Times”. What a voice and what a flow! I immediately noticed similarities to late Bim Sherman tracks. I was also very happy to have a Jahtari production with Roger Robinson with me. Together with Disrupt he has a current version of Dub Poetry brought back to the future, which is extremely critical of today's wounds. ”So much for Karsten. The only thing missing is my judgment. It reads: Karsten is one hundred percent right.
