Of course, Dubblestandart have been keeping a version of the dub flame alive for the last two decades, their formation coinciding with the phase in which Jamaican dub was on the way out. Formed in 1988 as a reaction to the stagnant Austrian pop scene, the group was heavily inspired by the Black Ark, On-U Sound and Jah Shaka, infusing such dub influences within their heady blend of hardcore reggae and new wave, which soon brought them into the European public’s consciousness. Soon, they were so in demand as to be backing Lee Scratch Perry on the Austrian stage, followed by stints with dub poet Lilian Allen and ace toaster, Dillinger. At present, they have already issued over ten albums, collaborating with Ken Boothe, Sly & Robbie, Mad Professor, Marcia Griffiths, Chezere, Caron Wheeler (Soul To Soul) all the while working new technological dimensions into their sound, and although they have undertaken a dub tour of the US west coast, Canada, India, Russia it is fair to say that the band is worthy of a broader audience.

Dubblestandart’s cavernous excursion into deep dub, chilling dub and dubble-tough dub will into perfection at DUB REALISTC.

Dubblestandart’s handling of this mission has been exemplary: the productions are pleasingly individualistic, retaining plenty of originality and professionalism without seeming stoic, dull or contrived. Watch this space to see where Dubblestandart’s dub realistc is blasting from the art of state...

Opening DUBREALISTIC with a slowed down adaption of Massive Attacks massive hit “Safe From Harm” presents Amanda Bauman going deeper, followed by a journey into the Middle East(Arab Dub) & further examples of how we, as musicians, digest the world around us (Earthshaker). Populistic tendences at home (Welcome To Europe) or “effects”of the refugee crisis (The Boat Stops) triggering questions: What is the role of us as artists (Not Controlled by the Artist) and how do we contribute in a positive way? From Kingston/ Jamaica Reggae & Soul singer Tanice Morris appears on „Let It Flow“ & Dub version & from Cairo/Egypt Aisha E dubbing on Bob Marley’s Sun Is Shining.
