If you're looking for a hot music event to go to in New York City, be sure to check out one or all of Dub Inc.'s shows beginning next weekend. They're coming over all the way from France, so you know it'll be worth it. Overseas, they've become renowned over the past decade for their unique sound that draws from Reggae, North African music, and American Hip-Hop. On stage the group is equally eclectic, with a variety of nationalities being represented and lyrics in four different languages. After touring extensively in Europe, they're ready to make it big in America. Check out the video above for a taste of their music, then head over to their web site or read the press release below for more information.
FRENCH REGGAE ACT DUB INC DEBUTS IN NEW YORK
(Brooklyn, NY) Exciting time for Dub Inc http://www.dubinc.org as they prepare to splash on America.
Hailing from St. Etienne, Dub Inc is renowned throughout all of Europe. Formed in France in 1997. Often labeled as ‘French Reggae’ the group’s sound is an immersion of a diverse array of musical influences. From N.African to Hip Hop. The band’s two lead vocalists embody this diversity, as one sings in a characteristically raga tone while the other uses a more “far eastern” style.
Fused together makes for a very interesting and refreshing sound that is both Universal and moving,
Dub Inc have toured over 800 concerts/festivals around the world since forming. Their live show is dynamic, powerful and electrifying.
Their latest project Afrikya is critically acclaimed and they are currently finishing up a new project to be released in October 2010.
The most remarkable aspect of Dub Inc is the independent nature of their rise to prominence.
They have maintained complete autonomy by being self-produced and self contained. Independent distribution with Naïve.
Dub Inc are extremely excited for this introduction to America which is long overdue but glad they finally have a platform. They have been dreaming about it for a long time. New York get ready!!!
