Mildtape focuses his attention on the dub’s infinite possibilities of evolution and mutation blending together, with the art of mixing, different genres with synthetically designed sounds .
After a considerable number of successful releases of notorious European netlabels, Mildtape lands on DubCombe Records with his new “Coat Rack EP” delivering an intricately deep and dark fusion of dub echos with spacey ambient sonorities, perfectly matched with DubCombe’s underground styles .
is an up-coming outfit within the city of Glasgow. Incorporating musical elements from African highlife and blues, to Kwaito and steppas with a heavyweight dub base. The grooves played are tight, solid and never fail to bring warm happy vibes to any event.
A highly diverse group, the use of digital elements, gives them the ability to set up in limited spaces bringing live music to where only DJs have played before. It also allows soundsystem-heavy music to be played live at similar levels to those of a DJ with ease.
Originally started with a soundsystem, DJing and solo productions by Anders Samson the band began in earnest when, King Raja and Willie G joined, bringing trombone and guitar to the table. From here the sound really progressed. Willie’s rapid African plucking and Rajas melodic brass gave a much wider scope for the music pushing the boundaries out from the solely electronic into a fresh blend of live instruments and digital sounds. With the addition of singer Easy Oze in early 2012 the group had reached the fullness of today. Easy Oze’s sweet and sometimes deceptively high voice, cuts a path while also providing deepsoul vocals to soothe it back over.
Born in Buenos Aires Maxi has been involved in many different projects both as bass player and sound engineer for a number of years. Following his move to Glasgow in 2008, he started one of the most successful reggae/dub bands in Scotland – The Mezzanine Allstars (former Captain Slackship’s Mezzanine Allstars).
He has since shared stages with legends such as Lee Scratch Perry, Toots and the Maytals, The Wailers, and Jimmy Cliff among others. Over the past six years, Maxi’s deep involvement in the Scot- tish dub scene gave him opportunity to engage with few of the names he always considered great influences of his style, names of the caliber of Mungos Hi Fi, Vibronics and Zion Train to name a few. This lead to a sick addiction for the BASS (and it’s not just the instrument we are talking about!).
This was of great inspiration, encouraging Maxi to move into production and forge his own sonority under the name MAXIROOTS.
Following nearly three years of preparation and road testing around Scotland, Maxitoos finally sees his first solo EP – See No Light – taking shape and form with DubCombe Records, an independent net label from Edinburgh/Rome, dedicated to those who love Dub music and its derivatives.
