Well, what do you think?! To go, of course! Dub has always been about being on the move, wether in the Jamaican (concrete) jungle or in the outer realms of inner space.
Kabanjak – experienced musician, producer and DJ with Switchstance Recordings from Day One and, as part of the duo Ancient Astronauts, the only German studio wizard in the fine artist roster of the American label ESL Music – has always loved the bass-heavy forays of sonic pioneers such as Lee Perry, King Tubby, Augustus Pablo, Scientist or Mad Professor. Honestly, who doesn't?!
But his likings and influences certainly don't stop there, and that is why his upcoming „Dub To Go EP“ is not „just another“ Dub affair: In the title track „Dub To Go“, Kabanjak combines ultra-low bass with inspired drum breaks, a deep organ and loads of subtle effects into an epic reverie that is much larger than its parts – which were all played and recorded by Kabanjak himself, no less! „Dub To Go (Ancient Astronauts Remix)“ sees Kabanjak reunited with his longtime collaborator Dogu – together they shape the track into a proper piece of bass-laden funkin' and skankin' music which might even be able to make your head fall off from too much heavy nodding while dancing. Third and final track „Wishcraft“ presents yet another interpretation of Dub music, enhanced by funky, almost rocky drums as well as guitar and flute licks that bring – in more than one ways a trademark Kabanjak choon, but in a fine Dub-To-Go stylee!
The „Dub To Go EP“ by Kabanjak is released on vinyl and digital 30th July 2010 on Switchstance Recordings. It represents the first teaser for the upcoming Kabanjak solo album „Tree of Mystery“ which will be released by ESL Music in fall of 2010.
