Influenced by UK and Jamaican dub, the KANKA‘s sound is stepper (warrior style !) and his compositions based on a strong bass & drums section. Even if the reggae riddim can often be heard, it sounds of today : tempos are particularly high for this kind of music, the heavy bass line combined to a dynamic drums style and electro soundz
His first ‘‘official’‘ album, ‘‘ Don’t stop dub ! ’‘, has been released on HAMMERBASS Records in march 2005. Acclaimed by all the actors of the international dub scene and played by respected sound systems, this album gave him the opportunity to make himself known from worldwide dub addicts.
As for the 1st album, KANKA is playing all instruments (drums, percussions, keyboards, bass, machines…) on his new opus also released by Hammerbass Records : ‘‘Alert’‘. Composed of 12 tracks, included 3 featuring vocals of Brixton’s famous MC BROTHER CULTURE , ‘‘Alert’‘ is one of the heavyest dub album released in the last 20 years !!
Electro soundz and roots dub riddims are still combined with the purpose of efficiency.
Created for Sound Systems parties as well as club’s dance floors, ‘‘ALERT’‘ will make the walls rattlle !!! Crucial dub !
