DUB WAR NYC SPECIAL
feat Sensational + Spectre, Badawi
Dub War closes out an amazing year of future bass music by returning to our New York roots.
At the heart of the mighty Wordsound label, producer/DJ/label owner SPECTRE crafted some of the dankest, darkest, strangest hip hop rhythms ever produced during the Brooklyn label's mid-90s heyday. Drawing inspiration from producers like DJ Premier, RZA, and Evil Dee, Spectre reduced his productions down to the darkest and most minimal core.
These tunes proved to be the perfect vehicle for the one-of-a-kind verbal weirdness of MC SENSATIONAL. Formerly part of the Jungle Brothers, Sensational veered toward ever weirder and more experimental flows. But he always stayed close to the streets and has recently been making waves, appearing on the cover the The Wire magazine this month and releasing a record on the amazing Werk Records label in London.
Another New Yorker who helped paved the way for the current underground bass movement makes his return to Dub War this month. BADAWI has made waves recently, appearing with the Dub War crew on the Mary Anne Hobbs show on BBC Radio 1, getting remixed by Kode 9 and Shackleton, and offering up new original material for the new Index label launching early 2010. His work as part of Sub Dub in the early 90's, and solo albums like "Bedouin Soundclash featuring Honeychild" were way ahead of their time. Check his latest mix of new original productions for the Dub War Podcast.
Then the residents - Joe Nice, Dave Q + Incyde are going to bring the freshness as always!
