Initiée par les membres de KALY LIVE DUB, le projet BASS CRAFTERS est une création 100% live qui a pour vocation de faire exploser les dance-floors ! Imprégnés de la culture sound-system made in UK, ils ont opté cette fois ci pour une formule « live-machine » percutante et mutante. Et pour les accompagner dans cette nouvelle aventure, ils se sont alloués les services de SHANTI D, chanteur déjà bien connu du public reggae-dub, notamment pour ses productions avec Junior Cony, High Tone ou Obf.

De cette collaboration fructueuse est né FEEDBACK, 1er maxi composé de 4 titres puissants, oscillant entre stepper dub et dubstep, sur lesquels SHANTI D pose sa voix envoûtante.

A l’occasion de la sortie en novembre de FEEDBACK (exclusivement en vinyl et téléchargements), ils seront en tournée pour le TELERAMA DUB FESTIVAL !!

Né de la rencontre explosive de 2 formations incontournables de la scène dub européenne, le projet <strong>"IMPROVISATORS DUB meets IRATION STEPPAS"</strong> a vu le jour à l'occasion d'une création et un concert unique pour le <strong>Printemps de Bourges</strong>en 2007, fruit de 10 jours mémorables de travail en commun.

Le résultat fut tellement encourageant que les 2 groupes décidèrent de ne pas en rester là…

Au menu : 12 titres ravageurs, taille sound system !

Rythmiques imparables, basses abyssales, effets dévastateurs et chants terriblement efficaces que n'aurait pas renié Prince far I…De quoi faire chauffer les systèmes et les dance floors !

Histoire de boucler la boucle, le super collectif décline ces titres en un live écrasant, percutant, perforant, bref : puissant !
Et après avoir mis tout le monde d'accord lors de la dernière édition du <strong>Telerama Dub Festival</strong> en mai 2008, les 8 dubbers remettent ça avec une série de dates exceptionnelles en France : c'est l'événement dub de cette fin d'année à ne rater sous aucun prétexte!

Inna Steppa Dub

Improvistor dub meets Iration steppas Commander sur CD1D

This project is actually the 1st part of a serie of remixes he elaborated with other artists using his album 'Foundation Rockers' (end of 2003).
Entitled "Remixed : Dubwise", he brings together the 'roots' tunes and turns on original vocals of well-known singer (featuring in the previous album) : <strong>BIG YOUTH</strong>, <strong>LUCIANO</strong>, <strong>MIKAL ROSE</strong> (<strong>Black Uhuru</strong>), <strong>RANKING JOE</strong>, <strong>BROTHER CULTURE</strong>.

For exceptional vocalists, he needed exceptional remixer !
The artists who showed up are prestigious and well-known by reggae-dub fans.

71 minutes of original sound in the purest Jamaican tradition !

<strong>XLR8R "<strong>Twilight Circus is the top sound....."
<strong>THE WIRE - ".....this is as good as newly created dub gets..." – Steve Barker
<strong>EXCLAIM! - "Moore's songwriting and recording technique remains superior to anyone working in dub today"
<strong>REGGAE VIBES - "One of the most creative and original Dub wizards in the world!"</strong></strong></strong></strong></strong>

Why this compilation ?

Dub Action sound system & Hammerbass label basis but also goal have always been the exchange spirit, a dub speciality (thru dub plates, clashes, remixes), shared by the whole dub network : artists, labels & sound systems. We wanted to thank & pay tribute to those of them who supported us and made it happen ! All tracks are mixed in a sound system style. You will find previously unreleased tracks and also songs extracted from Hammerbass vinyls or CDs. Last but not least, we asked all our dub friends to collaborate to this record by sending little messages to be the links between the tracks.

1/ <strong>RASBORAS DUB TRIBE</strong> “House of Dub” [Rasboras inc.] / previously unreleased
As a composer, Rasboras is the spine of this compilation, mixing & remixing all the tracks like he used to do live.

2/ <strong>DJINS </strong>“Warrior” [Djins] / previously unreleased
An unreleased track taken out from the huge Djins’ repertoire. Djins & Dub Action team being friends for years it naturally led to the release of their first album on Hammerbass.

3/ <strong>THE ROOTSMAN</strong> “Imitator” [The Rootsman] / from the album “Realms of the Unseen” BASSCD001
Rootsman is likely the stepping stone for Dub Action / Hammerbass. First artist to be invited to the Dub Action parties, first 12” vinyl, then first CD album on Hammerbass.

4/ <strong>DADDY FREDDY</strong> “Imitator” [The Rootsman / Daddy Freddy] / from the album DADDY FREDDY meets THE ROOTSMAN “Old School New School” BASSCD002
Another Rootsman’s production, this time with the legendary & genuine DADDY FREDDY, the man with the fastest flow in the world, inventor, with his friend Asher D., of the Ragga Hip Hop.

5/ <strong>DUB WISER</strong> remixed by THE COUNT OF MONTE CRISTO “Fire” [Mulat / Luzardi] / previously unreleased
Another meeting thru DUB ACTION between JP Sluys aka the Count of Monte Cristo from Brooklyn (Qaballah Steppers, Baraka Foundation) & parisian dub duet DUB WISER.

6/ <strong>DUB WISER</strong> “Sensi Drinka” [Mulat / Luzardi] / from the 12” BASS004
Luz used to play in the late 80’s in a band called Ausweis. Together with the french singer PUPPA LESLIE, on their last album,“Dub Action” (!), they initiated french Rub A Dub. A decade later, he meets Rico, and “the urban crossover adventure begins”.

7/ <strong>RASBORAS</strong> “Ta’ al ya ahi” [Rasboras inc.] / previously unreleased
Once again Rasboras’ fascination for North Africa is revealed here.

8/ <strong>PRIMITIVE</strong> “Keep on rollin’” [Sall / Neves] / from the 12” BASS002
Marco Neves (Elephant system) & Amadou Sall (Collapse),both coming from the industrial hardcore scene, explore electro dub.

9/ <strong>PRIMITIVE</strong> remixed by THE ROOTSMAN “Keep on rollin’” [Sall / Neves] / from the 12” BASS002
A collaboration between Primitive and The Rootsman, between french and english new school was bound to happen.

10/ <strong>RASBORAS DUB TRIBE</strong> remixed by DJINS “Peace & Freedom” [Rasboras inc.] / from the 12” BASS003
A track revisited by the French Sly & Robbie, Phil & Yao. One can recognize their unique touch at first hearing : drum’n’bass as a background.

11/ <strong>RASBORAS DUB TRIBE</strong> “Peace & Freedom” [Rasboras inc.] / from the 12” BASS003
Rasboras’ original version : a trip thru Oriental landscapes & dub spiritual thought.

12/ <strong>THE ROOTSMAN</strong> featuring PATRICK IRIE “A Matter of Time” [The Rootsman] / from the 12” BASS001
The sound that gave birth to Hammerbass. During his first gig in Paris The Rootsman played this dub plate with the anglo-jamaïcan singer P. Irie, bringing the evening to a climax. It soon became the very first Hammerbass release.

13/ <strong>THE ROOTSMAN</strong> featuring PATRICK IRIE “A Matter of Dub” [The Rootsman] / from the 12” BASS001
DUB DUB DUBWISE !

14/ <strong>RASBORAS DUB TRIBE</strong> remixed by THE ROOTSMAN “Elevation” [Rasboras inc.] / from the 12” BASS003
This dub is the result of an inevitable collaboration between two oriental music and digital experiments addicts.

15/ <strong>DJINS</strong> “Fire” [Djins] / previously unreleased
DJINS as usual explore different musical landscapes : dub meets house

16/ <strong>The ROOTSMAN meets The RASBORAS</strong> “Ras el Hanout” [The Rootsman / Rasboras inc.] / previously unreleased
A week end in Paris, Rasboras & Rootsman face to face in a home studio : that’s live and direct !
