I had the pleasure this summer to see them on stage in different festivals and I have to say it was really amazing. Their music has its unique Dub Inc. touch, their live performance are full with energy and love from them to they audience, and from the audience to them ! This time, Zigo, the drummer in the band, offered us an interview before his show. Unfortunately we couldn’t be in the same place, but thanks to Skype, we made it anyway !
Undoubtedly Dub Inc has become the epitome of the successful European Reggae band; indeed the band’s life performances have allowed them to establish as the spearhead of the French musical scene abroad over the past ten years. By achieving this an unequalled breath of fresh air has swept over it completely.
Inspired by true humane ethics, their unique sense of melody combined with truthful lyrics has exported so well that their music resounded as far as Portugal, Algeria, Senegal, Canada, Columbia or India, as well as in places where they rubbed shoulders with internationally-renowned artists like Tiken Jah Fakoly, David Hinds or Tarrus Riley.
Blending Reggae, Dancehall, Kabyl or World Music, Bouchkour and Komlan’s voices, both different and complementary, embody the band’s true belief in the intermixing of styles and people : whether they write in French, English or Kabyl they convey a universal message with an energy that live music only possesses.

Big Up Zigo, Big Up Dub Inc, Big Up Valentin !
