Various artist – Danish Dub Part 2 LP


Second chapter of the Danish Dub-series is here!

In June 2023, Tribe 84 Records and Dubfabrikken Records released the first ever compilation of Danish dub music. The vinyl double LP sold out fast, so here comes the second chapter – Danish Dub Part 2, released on June 29, 2024.

Once again, with this compilation we bring forward the best Danish reggae & dub producers to be presented for a wider audience internationally and nationally. Ranging from more traditional inspirational reggae vibes, filled with analog effects, to stomping electronic steppers music.

Danish Dub Part 2 is a strictly homegrown double LP – produced, mastered and manufactured locally in the Danish capital of Copenhagen. It was even recorded to analogue tape to bring out the best sound possibly.

For Danish Dub Part 2 we have dug deep and found both brand new upcoming producers just starting their journey in dub music, as well as producers who ventured into dub many moons ago, utilizing homebuilt reverb units and rare studio equipment dating back to the 50s.

Record 1 of the Danish Dub Part 2 double LP features four brand new dub songs made for this album. Gogo, Mambe and Jah Moby are all singers well known in the Copenhagen dub and reggae scenes, collaborating with several local producers and sound systems. Dan I Locks is a more familiar name in the international dub and reggae communities, releasing hit after hit with, among others, dub legend Ashianti Selah. Based in Malmö, Sweden, he’s a frequent guest at the Dubfabrikken sessions in Copenhagen.

Sven Irie and Gogo starts out the first part of Danish Dub Part 2 with a cry for ceasefire on Evil Must Fall in both vocal and dub versions. Unfortunately, still – and always – a relevant message. Doktor Lond and Dan I Locks are up next, inciting peace and love to our neighbours. On the other side, Dub Across Borders and Mambe goes deep in Subconscious and the counteraction Dubconscious, followed by Almost HiFi featuring Jah Moby’s dystopian dub visions in Darkness.

The second record comprises four unrelenting instrumental tunes, from different Danish dub music studios. Concrete Iration from the city of Aalborg in northern Denmark has been building a dub soundsystem and music studio over the last years, and now they’re ready with the tuff tune No Freedom.

When the dub effects ring out, the young guns from Ital Foundation steps up with a up-to-date take on the steppers style of dub music, pushing the bass speakers to the max. On the flip, Hieronymous Dub Sounds takes you on a journey with the track Copenhagen Jungle Dub, before Mbizo & 2000F finishes the >record with Cold Gold, a raw dub instrumental that is guaranteed to fill the dancefloor.
