<strong>ALEK<sup>6</sup></strong> makes us travel into a more <strong>introspective</strong> and clinical territory than his usual productions and propose another read of dub music : the tempo’s slow down and electro texturing is significant. But bass-lines remain seriously huge and the result is an infectious <strong>dubstep-reggae hybrid</strong> entitled "<strong>INSIDE</strong>". Alongside the 10 tracks, dub weighted bass is roaring while choppy beats create a metallic ambiance and “INSIDE” is a shining example of the collision between hightech dubstep and rootsy dub. To be noticed, 2 tracks highly made for making the walls rattle : "<strong>Station</strong>" in a steppa style, and "<strong>Home</strong>", a drum'n'bass digression. <strong>ALEK<sup>6</sup></strong> : the new name of dubstep !

<a href="http://www.hammerbass.fr/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/2012/11/10_10.jpg"><img class="alignleft size-thumbnail wp-image-207" title="Baby G" src="http://www.hammerbass.fr/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/2012/11/10_10-150x150.jpg" alt="" width="150" height="150" /></a>Talent and simplicity. These two words are enough to define <strong>Baby G’</strong>s personality. Talent because he is full of it, because his voice is out of the ordinary, recognizable among all. And simplicity : of his person, his lyrics, which send back to the real values of reggae : rebellion,contesting of social and racial disparities, peace and unity between the masses.

Born in the countryside in the city of Shelchers (in the French Carribean island of Martinique), he began singing at the age of 10 in the choir of his Tivoli parish. In the same time, a vocation and voice were born. Teenager he scored the whole sound systems of the island and began to gain a certain reputation. He then recorded a song for a compilation entitled <strong>« Dance Hall Party</strong> » produced by <strong>« Don Miguel </strong>» famous figure of the reggae scene in the Carribean islands ; and a single « <strong>Children of Africa</strong> » on the <strong>Hibiscus </strong>label.
In 1995, his apprenticeship completed, he went to Jamaica, the great neighboor island, cradle of reggae and of the rasta ideal.
Barely turned up, he rush to «<strong> Mixing lab</strong> » and met « <strong>Fatta Linford Marshall</strong> » who then mixed his first album «<strong> Hileaf </strong>» produced by the carribean crew Hileaf. The Jamaican adventure ended in an artistic disappointment due to his lack of experience in studio and to his excessive fascination for <strong>Jamdown</strong>.
Whatever, with this experience he went to France and frequented the parisian Sound Systems where he met « Philip & Yao », duet of the « <strong>Djins » & « Paris Yard</strong> », and the HAMMERBASS / Dub Action crew. They then decided to work together on the realization of an album. He also appeared on the Elephant System album (Island) produced by Adrian Sherwood,
participated to the compilations « Plus de cœur égal soleil » (Barclay) of PK Machine, PierPolJak’s possee, « Assassinat » and « Genesis » of the label Mek it Happen, and recorded for the volume 1 of the « Kaktus records » compilation (Naïve).
Enriched with these various experiences and with dozens of shows with the « Dub Action » Sound System, he just completed his first real album :« h.i.m. ».

Here we are with ten tracks, individually revised by a selection of top quality remixers of the Dub scene.

Thus some of the creators of the UK 'new roots' of those last years (<strong>Zion Train</strong>, <strong>The Disciples</strong>, <strong>Alpha & Omega</strong>) run along the must of the 'Dub-illbient' made in Brooklyn (<strong>Spectre</strong>, <strong>The Count of Monte Christo</strong>).

The young emerging French DUb scene had to be represented by the most innovative artists (<strong>Lab°</strong>, <strong>General Dub</strong>, <strong>Kobe</strong>, <strong>Prime Time Victim Show</strong>, <strong>Djins</strong>).

Also on this album 2 previously unreleased tracks of <strong>Brain Damage</strong> and <strong>Another Sound System Experience</strong>, freshly coming from the <strong>7/11 Laboratory</strong>.

With a firmly eclectic constitution, '<strong>Combat Dub</strong>' seems to assume an homogeneous feature though, thanks to a certain spirit shared by all of them :
Independance and Artistic quality.

Coming from the Lyon electronic scene, LCX and FYG, the 2 handymen <strong>BOTOM BOTOM</strong>'s musicians already released a self-produced EP ('Testez les 6 sens') in 1997. Then they got involved in several compilations such as <strong>La Dernière Bombe</strong> (97), <strong>Créature des Abysses</strong> (alongside Zenzile, Le Peuple de l'herbe, Rhinocérôse...in 98) and <strong>Wreck This Mess</strong> (alongside Twilight Circus, Spectre, Dub Factory, DJ Spooky...in 99).

At this time the <strong>HAMMERBASS</strong> crew spotted them and <strong>BOTOM BOTOM was logically invited to the famous <strong>DUB ACTION</strong> parties in Paris in 2001. The seeds of collaboration between the band and the label were sown.</strong>

The same year, they start working with a female singer, Sylvie Russo, and they build their own studio called The Jurassik Studio (a mix of old and new equipment, with few prototypes here and there...)in which they composed and recorded in 2002 their first real album 'Peace, Unity, Love, Having Fun and Computers'.
<strong>HAMMERBASS</strong> Records released it in october 2002 and the following months several gigs were set with <strong>DUB ACTION</strong>. The album got good feedbacks from the media and the promoters. Then one of the track, 'Reality Show', appears in the famous compilation <strong>I DUB YOU!</strong>[EMI] as well as in <strong>FRENCH DUB SYSTEM VOL.1 </strong>[Wagram].

End of 2004 they go back to the Jurassik Studio to build their next album : <strong>'This is not a stereotype'</strong> which will be released by <strong>HAMMERBASS</strong> in februray 2006.

<strong>BOTOM BOTOM</strong> is now 5 people on stage as a bassman (Maurad) and a guitarist (Hakim) join them to share the pleasure of live music.

From dub electro to world music, from trip-hop to reggae, BOTOM BOTOM music gives a fresh new breath to the French scene !!

They already acquired a solid live reputation playing regularly with <strong>DUB ACTION sound system</strong> all over in France and as residents of the Paris Elysée Montmartre “Jungle Fever” parties. Live, they mix machines and instruments for the best dancing efficiency.

At ease with Reggae/Dub, Drum’n’bass, Jazz or Traditional Music, these “made in France Sly & Robbie” are everywhere: the famous French magazine LES INROCKUPTIBLES included them on their Summer 99 Sampler while another track is featured on the German label <strong>ECHO BEACH </strong>compilation <strong> “FRENCH DUB CONNECTION” </strong> (June ‘99).

<strong>DJINS</strong> composed the music and produced the French singer <strong>CHET</strong> album (May 2001) as well as some French raggamuffin <strong>SAI SAI</strong> tracks.
Then in 2002, they released their side project album under the name of<strong> PARIS YARD “Dubvisions” </strong>on Hammerbass Records (BASSCD009) and co-produced French reggae new talent: <strong>BABY G</strong> (“<strong>H.IM</strong>” / BASSCD013).

<a href="http://www.hammerbass.fr/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/2012/11/1_1.jpg"><img class="alignleft size-thumbnail wp-image-183" title="Fedayi Pacha" src="http://www.hammerbass.fr/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/2012/11/1_1-150x150.jpg" alt="" width="150" height="150" /></a>Member of the French dub collective <strong>BANGARANG</strong>, <strong>FEDAYI PACHA</strong> appeared in 2003 when the project <strong>ANOTHER SOUND SYSTEM EXPERIENCE (A.S.S.E.)</strong> ended, shortly after a master piece EP released in 99 : <strong>'From Scratch'</strong>.


Faithfull to the Saint-Etienne-based crew, <strong>Fedayi Pacha</strong> also belongs to the electro-dub trend, but with an obvious attraction for the crossover between technology and much more oriental flavours.

Far from confining himself to his Armenian roots, he uses the whole Middle-East (Palestine, Egypt...) as a sound frame all along the 9 tracks of the album.
We think about Bill Laswell, Bally Sagoo or Black Star Liner...Rhythm are haunting, almost hypnotic and for sure basslines are present.

Likewise the Orientalists, he uses the theme only as an excuse to renew the approach : <strong>Fedayi Pacha</strong> sets himself free from the Jamaican roots of dub music by spicing it differently.

Thanks to a mobile studio, each live act is an opportunity to rebuild the music through the mixing board and sound effects, combining sound textures, jumping from brand new high-tech equipment to out-of-date technology rejects, through dudug and melodica through sampler and other sirens.

After a 1st serie of gigs (amongst them 2003 Larzac Festival, Avatarium fest,Batofar, alongside <strong>Brain Damage</strong>, <strong>Ez3kiel</strong>, <strong>Lena</strong>, <strong>Aba</strong> <strong>Shanti</strong>, <strong>General Dub</strong>, <strong>Radio Bomb</strong>, <strong>Double Nelson</strong>, <strong>Techno</strong> <strong>Animals</strong>, <strong>Duberman</strong>) and several appearances on different compilations ('<strong>Combat Dub 2</strong>' for a remix of <strong>Brain Damage</strong>, '<strong>I Dub You!</strong>',<strong>French dub System</strong>'...), <strong>FEDAYI PACHA</strong> was back on stage for about fifteen nights, including a memorable party at the Batofar in Paris, for the warm-up of <strong>Zenzile sound System</strong>.

Next album to be released for spring 2007 !

<a href="http://www.hammerbass.fr/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/2012/11/8_8.jpg"><img class="alignleft" title="Jah warrior" src="http://www.hammerbass.fr/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/2012/11/8_8-150x150.jpg" alt="" width="150" height="150" /></a>‘’I first became interested in reggae music during the mid seventies, when I lived in Manchester. It was the era of the <strong> 'punky reggae party </strong>' - they always had a mixture of punk bands & reggae bands and I heard my first sound system at one of their outdoor festivals.
At first I became aware that some of the music was different to the rest - it had a harder feel to it, with strange echoed bits of voice and piano. Eventually I discovered that this style of reggae was called 'dub' and from then onwards I became a confirmed dub addict.

I began collecting records, ones which cost little then but have since come to be worth a small fortune. Dances were different in those days. Most of the sounds were much heavier - you'd be literally gasping for breath because the bass put so much pressure on your chest, but in 1980 I discovered a new level of sound system, when I heard <strong> Jah Shaka </strong>for the first time in Derby.
The intensity of <strong>Shaka </strong> dances back then was something else. The music he played, the way he sounded and his dj style was unique - even though other sounds might have played the same dubs, <strong>Shaka's </strong> cuts were always the baddest -, and everyone producing music or playing sound on this scene nowadays is influenced by him, myself included. In fact, the roots scene in England probably wouldn't even exist now without Shaka, 'cos he's the only one who kept the faith & kept it going when all the other sounds drifted off into sleng teng and fast talk MC's and ragga.

In 1981 I moved to London and started going to <strong> Shaka </strong>dances at a club called <strong>Phoebes </strong>in Stoke Newington on Friday nights. A few years later I got the opportunity to have my first actual input, when hip-hop dj <strong> Tim Westwood </strong> asked if I wanted to do a reggae show on a pirate station he was on called <strong> LWR </strong>. I did it for about six months and I used to do 'session tapes' in advance where I'd record dub with an MC and sound effects then play it during the show.

At the same time some local youths who were forming a sound system asked me to join as selector, owing to my large collection of music. The sound was called <strong>Humble Lion </strong> and for a couple of years we played in blues dances throughout North London, building up a reputation. Sound members came and went, then in 1987 we decided to build the sound up more and changed the name to <strong>Jah Warrior </strong>. For the next few years we played in London on our own and also with other sounds like <strong> Manasseh </strong>, <strong>Jah Tubby's </strong>, <strong>Iration Steppas </strong>, <strong>Aba Shanti </strong>, <strong>Jah Observer </strong> and so on.
The sound system led to my first beginning in producing music. I started off doing dubplates with <strong> Keety Roots </strong> and <strong>Blacka </strong> at a studio called <strong> Vibes </strong> in East London. I didn't really have much involvement with the music then, I just used to hum a bassline, and they'd turn it into a tune for me. I continued doing this at various other studios with other people, and began to teach myself how to play, though I still wouldn't really call myself a musician.
Then in 1990 I had an opportunity to release some music with <strong>Mr Modo </strong>records. I put out an LP called <strong>Warrior Dub </strong>' under the name <strong> Zulu Warriors </strong> and a single called ' <strong>2000 Style' </strong>with <strong>Naph-Tali </strong>, but I wasn't ready for it at the time and I later took a long break from releasing any more stuff, whilst continuing to produce dub for the sound.

In 1995 I decided the time was right for putting out more music, and the first on the <strong>Jah Warrior </strong> label was <strong> 'The 22nd Book </strong>' , voiced by my long time companion <strong>Naph-Tali </strong>. The tune sold well and was generally acclaimed as one of the best roots singles of the year.
Since then, the sound system has taken a back seat to the music production. I'll still play out for other people when the occasion demands, but after twelve years of carrying speaker boxes up stairs, I get more enjoyment out of working in the studio and I plan to release many more tunes in the future. <strong> Jah Warrior Records </strong> has gone from strength to strength now and is established as one of the leading independent roots and dub reggae labels in the UK. To everyone who's been with me on the way, I just want to say thank you, and respect.’’

<strong><a href="http://www.hammerbass.fr/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/2012/11/5_5.jpg"><img class="alignleft size-thumbnail wp-image-192" title="Manasseh" src="http://www.hammerbass.fr/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/2012/11/5_5-150x150.jpg" alt="" width="150" height="150" /></a>MANASSEH SOUND SYSTEM </strong>first played out at <strong>Notting Hill Carnival </strong>1985 .Although this was the beginning of a Sound System , it was also the culmination of a good few years of planning and hoping . The speakers were all hand made and the amps and pre-amp were custom built by the veteran builder <strong> ‘Jah Tubbys’</strong>. Right from the start the sound has specialized in Roots Reggae Music . Although we play all types of reggae and always have done , the roots is where we’re coming from and is the reason why we started the sound . The original crew consisted of Nick as the Selector and Operator , Eddie as the box designer / Tek and Billy T as the overseer and voice of reason . Based in West London , Sheperds Bush , it wasn’t long before we were playing all kinds of parties and blues around the place.
It was when we hooked up with Femi (later with the Young Disciples) and the brothers Joey and Norman Jay that we started to provide reggae music at some big warehouse parties in the late 80s . Apart from playing at some great nights and finally making a bit of money , this association had one big consequence : Joey and Norman got us a late night show on the pirate station <strong>Kiss FM . </strong>

<strong>MANASSEH ON KISS FM </strong>began in February 1987 after Nick and Jeremy Armstrong returned from a trip to Jamaica loaded up with rare oldies , brand new music and some dubplates from<strong> King Tubbys</strong> . The new show ran from 3am to 7am or whenever somebody else turned up ! Along with Joey Jay’s Sunday evening show these were the first hardcore roots shows on the radio and their popularity revolutionized<strong> Manasseh </strong>as a sound system . <strong>Manasseh </strong>was now playing to the people who wanted to hear and we started to do some big roots dances . In 1988 we clashed with the mighty<strong> Jah Shaka </strong>which was a big dance and a memorable night in Hackney (some people say we had him , I think he played better than I have ever heard him play) . We also played three dances with <strong>Jah Warrior</strong> (won the first two , last one debatable!) , sessions with<strong> Coxsone</strong> , <strong>Observer</strong> , <strong>Jah Tubbys</strong> , <strong> Fatman</strong> , again with <strong>Shaka</strong> (where he dropped us with two tracks from our first album) and even<strong> Soul 2 Soul</strong> inna dubwise style ; and more recently <strong>Aba Shanti </strong>amongst others .
Kiss FM finally went legal and on air in September 1990 and until early 99 we did the late Saturday night 3 till 6 slot . With various changes of personnel the final Manasseh Djs on Kiss in 1999 were <strong>Nick Manasseh</strong> , <strong>Eddie Rocksteady</strong> , <strong>Oxman </strong>and <strong>Jeremy Equalizer</strong> . Our and Joey Jay’s shows helped to create the climate for todays Roots Scene with new artists like<strong> Luciano</strong> , <strong>Sizzla</strong> and (the late great) <strong>Garnet Silk</strong> becoming massively popular ; as well as huge interest being generated in revival roots music , there now being an important re-issue 45 industry based in Jamaica and several labels in the UK re-issueing hard to get LPs and compilations (<strong>Blood & Fire , Pressure Sounds etc) . We hear of Manasseh radio tapes from all over the world and know of vast collections going back years ; it’s quite common to meet somebody of 25 who has listened to the show since they were 13 or 14 !</strong>

<strong>MANASSEH PRODUCTION </strong>. Nick Manasseh began producing music for sound system exclusives around 1986 and after hooking up with Scruff Guilder in 1987 started to concentrate on a particular project which eventually became<strong> Sound Iration in Dub</strong> . The first single “Seventh Seal” was cut on the 8/8/88 and was big on the roots scene , widely credited with being the first new wave UK dub track . The album was released in March 1989 on <strong>W.A.U. Mr. Modo</strong>records , a label which was the brainchild of <strong>Alex Patterson </strong> (The Orb) and <strong>Youth</strong> (Killing Joke) . The album sold well and the label went on to release some other notable roots/dub albums produced by Scruff and Nick such as Tena Stelin’s first LP “Wicked Invention” ( a vocal set to S.I. in Dub ) ; Lidj Incorporated :Black Liberation and the Dub album to it as well as various singles .

In the early 90s Nick along with Gil Cang , Eddie Rocksteady and Mak Gilchrist started<strong> Riz Label</strong> . The first releases were <strong>Orville Smith</strong>’s Leaving Rome , <strong>Bob Skeng</strong>’s Education and <strong>Earl 16</strong>’s Natural Roots . 16’s track went very well and the label quickly established itself as one of the leading UK roots labels . Other big things on Riz were <strong>Admiral Tibet</strong> “Permission” , <strong>Marcella French</strong> “Be Still” (on a funky vibe) and <strong>Manasseh meets the Equalizer</strong> “Soul Jah” from the album <strong>Dub The Millennium</strong> . Riz is still occasionally active , more recently releasing 45s with<strong> Johnny Osbourne</strong> (Rise Up) and <strong>Devon Russell </strong> (Underground) , although the momentum and vibe were dampened due to unrelated personal issues (divorce!).
When Riz released the Manasseh meets the Equalizer LP on vinyl a lot of interest was generated and the album was soon licensed to <strong>Acid Jazz </strong>records who were getting into putting out some roots music and tuned into the slightly jazzy flavour of the record . This began a period of major label interest in Manasseh productions with <strong>Columbia/Sony</strong> releasing <strong>Danny Red<strong>’s album “Riddimwise” in 1994 (co-produced with Pepe Acunzo and Martin Madhatter) . <strong>B.M.G</strong>became involved when Nick met up with the <strong>Stereo Mcs</strong> and their manager Kieth Cooper to sign a deal for a more leftfield dub record for their new label Natural Response which was in itself signed to B.M.G .This project became <strong> “Spectre : The Missing Two Weeks” </strong>and was recorded solo by<strong> Nick </strong>with<strong>James Style</strong> as the vibemaster and overseer . Recently re-issued by <strong>Echo Beach </strong>records , this is one of the faves ! Another album for <strong>Acid Jazz </strong>came out in late 96 called “Shining” and although a great piece of work it suffered a lot from the problems which troubled that label and led to its demise . Both the Manasseh meets the Equalizer LPs were released in America on Hollywood records and are still available . Nick Manasseh and Jeremy the Equalizer are busy recording and as of the time of writing have just about finished a new album . The last record out was the <strong>Skenga EP</strong> which mashed up the place in the summer of 99 . Nick also works as a producer and recently produced an album for one of Portugal's top bands (musica exotica para filmes , radio e televisao : Cool Hipnoise) and features on the <strong>Dido</strong> album "No Angel" on the track "Honestly OK" (melodica and additional production). Remixes are too numerous to list but labels worked with recently include : Guidance (Chicago) , Interchill (Canada) , Soundtrees (London) and Butterfly (London) . A full discography is available .</strong></strong>

<strong>MANASSEH NOW </strong>are playing all over Europe and the UK . Having played at <strong>Rodigan’s Reggae</strong> as resident for a year and a half , Nick now plays this night at Subterrania roughly every month and plays in Edinburgh , Dublin , Brighton and Manchester all 2/3/4 times a year. He also does one off nights in Paris with the<strong> Dub Action</strong> crew and is touring in Germany and Austria this September 2001 alongside the <strong>Blood and Fire sound</strong> . There are occasional Social Centre gigs in Italy (Rome , Milan) and Portugal , and Nick is one of the regulars at the Essential Festivals and at the Glastonbury Festival . There are too many underground gigs to mention but those who went to the Junction in Brixton on Thursdays last year to check Manasseh at Jerry Dammers’s Wierd Science nights will remember them well ... Nick is also one of the regulars at 100%Dynamite ; a night run by Soul Jazz records and related to that great series of compilations of the same name . Going back to the early 90s , Manasseh played the first ever night at London's Dub Club and has continued to play there since . Nick has also been signed to Trust the DJ. Com so look out for downloadable Dj charts and nuff exclusives !<a href="http://www.hammerbass.fr/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/2012/11/5_5.jpg"><img class="alignleft size-thumbnail wp-image-192" title="Manasseh" src="http://www.hammerbass.fr/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/2012/11/5_5-150x150.jpg" alt="" width="150" height="150" /></a>

The 1st one, '<strong>En marche pour Sion</strong>' 2001 was unanimously acclaimed by specialized media. Eversince this album was released, <strong>MINIMAN</strong> is constantly on the French road and played in many festivals (<strong>TRANSMUSICALES</strong> in Rennes in 2002, <strong>NORDIK IMPACT</strong> in 2003, <strong>TELERAMA DUB FESTIVAL</strong>, <strong>JAMAICAN SUNRISE</strong> and <strong>MILLESIME </strong>festival in 2004, <strong>FESTOLERON</strong> in 2005…) and supported the <strong>ZION TRAIN</strong> 2003 French tour.

After his side project named <strong>SEVEN SEALS</strong> released in 2005 (elaborated with a guitar player), <strong>MINIMAN </strong>is back with a brand new album : '<strong>Opus in Dub Minor</strong>' and a new record label : <strong>HAMMERBASS Records</strong> !

Still deeply 'roots-influenced'(<strong>King Tubby</strong>, <strong>Sir Coxsone</strong>, <strong>Jah Warrior</strong>, <strong>Dub Syndicate</strong>…), <strong>MINIMAN</strong> delivers a massive dub, enlarging his borders towards trip-hop, breakbeat, industrial, or transe. A sophisticated sound made of samples, melodica, cinematographic atmosphere sometimes taken from original soundtracks.

With '<strong>Opus in Dub Minor</strong>' the talents of <strong>MINIMAN</strong> as an arranger are no more to be proven. Add the melodic inventiveness of his compositions (he trained as a pianist) and you'll have one of the major 2006 dub album.

<strong>MINIMAN</strong> will support <strong>EASY STALL ALL STARS </strong>[U.S] in march 2006.

The bands four previous releases, ‘<strong>Nucleus Roots</strong>’ from 2000, ‘<strong>Nucleus Roots in Dub</strong>’, 2001 , ‘<strong>Universal Love</strong>’ 2002 and ‘<strong>At the Heart of the Matter</strong>' 2004 were very well received and made them a regular feature on all respected sound systems as well as achieving Independent chart positions in France and Belgium. The new album is accompanied by a storming 10 inch, released by popular demand. This features <strong>Simon Dan</strong> singing ‘Jah Rule’ and ‘Let there be light’ by <strong>Moses</strong>.

Recent summers have seen <strong>Nucleus</strong> raising a storm at clubs and festivals across the continent, highlights involved supporting <strong>Lee Perry</strong> in Bergen, Norway, the prestigious Ostroda Reggae festival, Poland and the huge Dour festival in Belgium.

<strong>Nucleus Roots</strong> have a massive stage presence, with a mix of real instruments, heavyweight digital sound system vibe and a positive message. Current live shows feature the vocal talents of the heartical <strong>Moses</strong>, versatile <strong>DJ Country Culture</strong> and the mystical <strong>Daniel Ray</strong>, preaching tolerance peace and harmony to all who are prepared to listen. 2006 will also see guest appearances from <strong>Ossie Gad</strong> of the legendary <strong>Naturalites</strong>. With the solid backing of <strong>P Lush</strong>’s subterranean bass lines and the bubbling keyboards of <strong>Peter Technical</strong> they produce a contagiously danceable, uplifting roots sound.

Feelings run high when <strong>Nucleus</strong> take the stage so be prepared for a live performance that will take you through the full gamut of emotions.

<strong>Nucleus Roots</strong> really are at the heart of Dub!

<strong>Marco</strong>'s the singer / agitator of <strong>TREPONEM PAL which, since 1986, blows away every single "Rock" fences : after having delivered the world its metal-indus fury, the band covers the tracks by blending hard core, ragge, dub, funk...
He's also one of the 2 DJ's of the collective <strong>DUB ACTION</strong>.</strong>

<strong>Amadou</strong>'s is the singer of <strong>COLLAPSE</strong>, a rock band with industrial, metal, electronic and ethnical influences. He also produced albums for the <strong>Têtines Noires</strong>, <strong>Colm</strong> and <strong>Cape Fear</strong>.

The 2 musiciens knwo each other quite well and from their collaboration will come a heavy urban dub, boiling hot & freezing cold, intense and raw.

<strong>Heavy</strong> because the beat is destructive and the bass ultra-powerful.

<strong>Dub</strong> because the influence of reggae remains and the sound of the equipment is unique.

<strong><a href="http://www.hammerbass.fr/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/2012/11/12_12.jpg"><img class="alignleft" title="The rootsman" src="http://www.hammerbass.fr/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/2012/11/12_12-150x150.jpg" alt="" width="150" height="150" /></a>John Bolloten aka THE ROOTSMAN</strong> is one of the English electro-dub wave leaders along with <strong>Manasseh, Alpha & Omega, Zion Train or Dreadzone</strong>.
He first underwent basic training by selecting titles in <strong>roots-reggae</strong> sound systems and by being guest for pirate radio stations.
A few years later, he then organized his own party called <strong> ‘Dub me crazy’</strong>, which quickly acted as a reference. At this time he began to play along with artists such as <strong>Alex Paterson</strong> (The Orb) or <strong>Andy Weatherall</strong> (Sabres Of Paradise). While beginning creating his own bits, <strong>THE ROOTSMAN</strong> decided to create his own label and studio, <strong>THIRD EYE</strong>, and released the first <strong>DAYJAH & The DISCIPLES</strong> in 1993 before releasing several albums (among which featured the mythical ‘<strong>IN DUB WE TRUST</strong>’ in 1996).

His distinguished and crossbreeded music is a combination of several musical and cultural influences arising from <strong>Jamaica</strong> to the <strong>Middle-East</strong>through the <strong>North of England</strong> where he grew up.

With now more than ten albums released, <strong>THE ROOTSMAN</strong> has multiplied collaborations, and has remixed artists as varied as <strong>DUB SYNDICATE, BLACK STAR LINER, MUSLIMGAUZE (rip), TREPONEM PAL, DUB WAR, RASBORAS</strong> or <strong>SOULFLY</strong>.

The meeting with the french crew <strong>HAMMERBASS / DUB ACTION</strong> occured in 1997 in Paris on the occasion of a noteworthy party. Then was released at the end of the EP vynil ‘A matter Of Time’ (BASS001 – Out of stock!) – which framed the founder element of the <strong>HAMMERBASS</strong> label. The collaboration spread out with the releases of the album <strong> ‘REALMS OF THE UNSEEN’</strong> in 1999 (BASSCD001), of the ‘split album’ with Jamaican toaster<strong> DADDY FREDDY</strong> in 2000 (BASSCD002) and the remixes album ‘<strong>ROOTS BLOODY ROOTSMAN’</strong> (BASSCD007) in 2001.
