Dubmatix

Music runs deep within the veins as does the various musical styles Dubmatix drops - from pure, old-school King Tubby dub to the freshest electro/steppers dub to classic conscious roots to Drum'n'Bass and more. Having imprinted his name in the mind of the reggae fans across Canada & Europe with one of his first-ever releases back in 2004, the Toronto-born producer is now firmly established as one of Canada's premiere reggae/dub artists and with two chart-topping releases behind and the new "Renegade Rocker" just coming out, the future looks brighter than ever.

The Chameleon Project

The Chameleon Project delivers sleek and progressive dance music, using all the tools at their disposal. Urgent and infectious beats meet deep pocket angular grooves. Surprising textures and cleaver arrangements unite in an atmosphere where anything can happen for the sake of the groove. This tightly knit trio pushes musical limits while remaining melodic. With backgrounds in improvisation, jazz, electronic music, dub, and funk they lay down dance music with a brain and improvisation with a purpose. Extracting the musical innovations from the masters of the past and the vanguards of today, the Chameleon Project distill their disparate influences, the likes of Roni Size, LTJ Bukem, Grant Green, Miles Davis, Chic, Funkadelic, The Grateful Dead, Little Feat, & King Tubby, into a cohesive sound that delivers exciting soundscapes and dangerous beats. This is a band that you have to experience live. No two shows are ever the same. Be prepared for anything, but count on moving your body while thoughtful melodies and pastoral textures entrance your mind.

On June 29, 2008, tune in to Inside The Music on CBC Radio to hear "Jamaican Echoes". This groundbreaking, hour long documentary traces the spread of dub from an accident in a Jamaican recording studio to the four corners of the Earth. It will be broadcast on Radio 2 at noon and Radio 1 at 8PM

Interviews with historians, musicians and engineers explain how dub, once the instrumental counterpart to reggae, has changed popular music around the world. Dub is the heart of remix culture. It has become an international music, yet its descendents continue to be inspired by its Jamaican innovations. Dub isn’t just a musical remix, it’s a social remix.

Jamaican Echoes features a continuous mix of music spanning five decades to bring its narrative and interviews to life. Jamaican Echoes is both entertaining and insightful in bringing this underappreciated but widely influential musical concept to a national audience.

Featuring interviews with:

Adrian Sherwood (On-U Sound - Depeche Mode, Primal Scream)

Bill Laswell (Global dub innovator - Fela Kuti, Motorhead, Herbie Hancock)

Twilight Circus (M Records - Michael Rose, Big Youth, Queen Ifrica)

Clifton Joseph (Dubzzz poet at large - CBC, Dub Poets Collective)

Dubmatix (Nu dub from Toronto – new disc features Alton Ellis, Sugar Minott)

Leroy Sibbles (All-time reggae legend! Heptones, Studio One bassist)

Michael Veal (Author; Dub: Soundscapes And Shattered Songs In Jamaican Reggae)

Jamaican Echoes is hosted by Lauren "DJ Chocolate" Speers and written/produced/edited by David Dacks.
