Of the many artists and musicians I’ve met in this reggae game, perhaps no one is as grounded and reverent for this music as DJ and producer-extraordinaire Emch of Subatomic Sound System. We have enjoyed level vibes since Day One, an that is why it is my pleasure to announce that the Subatomic Sound Record Label will be taking their Dub Champions Festival to Vienna, Austria for the first time ever!
After two ground breaking dub festivals in New York City that brought you Scientist, Kode9, Lee Scratch Perry, Clive Chin, Appleblim & more, Subatomic Sound partners with Bun Fire Squad, RAW Vienna, and more to launch the first Dub Champions Festival in Europe in one of the world’s great musical cities: Vienna, Austria. The festival will span Feb 5-7 and, as in NYC, it will extend from the reggae roots of dub to the future of bass music, featuring legendary artists from Jamaica who invented dub as well as the latest innovators from around the globe who continue to push the sound forward in electronic music.
Subatomic Sound presented DUB CHAMPIONS FESTIVAL, SEPT. 20-24, 2012, in NYC. Dub from the reggae roots to the future of electronic bass music w/ the world’s greatest: Scientist & Roots Radics, Kode9, Lee “Scratch” Perry, Clive Chin, Appleblim, & more! In 2011, Subatomic Sound set out to create the premier dub festival in North America featuring the likes of Adrian Sherwood, Mad Professor, and Lee Scratch Perry, bringing together not only performances but also education and films. In 2012 we aim to step up it up a notch further reaching not only from the reggae roots of dub with Scientist & Lee Scratch Perry but also into the future of bass music with Hyperdub label founder Kode9 and Skull Disco’s Appleblim.
