Please meet MAXIROOTS

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 Scottish 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.

SUNRISE EP Launch Party…The Video!

One of the best parties ever! A great turn up for a wonderful event to celebrate a great release, the Sunrise EP by Glasgow dub cats SAMSON SOUNDS.

 Here the video from the launch party delivered by the Bumbaclot Mediahouse crew to relive those magic moments….ENJOY!

Sunrise EP by SAMSON SOUNDS – OUT NOW IN FREE DOWNLOAD!

Samson Sounds 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 deep soul vocals to soothe it back over. This group will always bring style and smiles to any party, regardless of the crowd.

Early Grey EP by DU3NORMAL – OUT NOW in FREE DOWNLOAD!

 


 

First breath of life for DubCombe Records comes from Hungarian producer DU3NORMAL and his Early Grey EP.
A cup of tea is a moment of break, relax and peaceful meditation; based on those concept DU3NORMAL has chosen the title of his first EP to represent the inner status of his mind while producing DUB.

The release floats on heavy kick drum beats in accordance with the stepper British style for an EP that will make you sweat from the first note!

Produced By: DU3NORMAL
Mastered By: QUOOB

REVIEWS:

 

QUART  [Hungary – 15.02.12]

“Jah Instead BudapestWe have some Hungarian ambassadors of all the Jamaican music genres now, recently for example the pre-reggae music was introduced here by Three Teadies and Mighty Fishers; and, although Anima Sound system started from here, dub music is still missing from the palette somehow. DU3normal plays this genre whose EP called Ealy Grey is the first downloadable release of DubCombe Records. The four tracks are worth to listen not only because of the fact that hey, there’s a dub tune in which they say Budapest instead of Jah, but also because it is tough, inspirational and it makes you want to dance. Our expert says this music follows the tradition of the UK stepper style – you can hear really good sounds beside the drum and bass: light guitar and brass themes with slyly effected synths.”

FREEGAN KOLLEKTIVA  [Greece – 10.02.12]

[…] “Although he comes from Budapest, Hungary, he has some island vibes in the sound, especially in the last track ‘Relax’. The sound is dub-centered with no deflections. It is a mix of dub of the classic era with a European vibe, especially UK steppers. The most evident characteristic of DU3normal is heaviness as beats and bass are quite pronounced, driving the songs. As the EP progresses, the songs are becoming more infectious. ‘Budapest’ presents a typical dub/reggae theme from start to finish, while ‘Fat Breakfast’ drops some 1980’s keys in the mix that gave me a bit of Jahtari style feel. The third number ‘Shadowsteppa’ is a homage to UK stepper dub style (Alpha and Omega, Disciples etc.), with some innovative samples. It is a personal favourite from this EP, along with the last track ‘Relax (Steppa Mix)’ which sounds so positive, shining and uplifting – mixing island dubbing with heavy kick drumbeats to stuff you with some energy. The sounds used on this track remind me the dreamy, spiritual sounding productions of Augustus Pablo.” […]
