Alborosie releases ‘Dub Pirate” just in Time for 420.

Alborosie presents Dub Pirate, released on his label evosound, ashis seventh adventure in dub music. Alborosie showcases his production skills by remixing twelve songs from Soul Pirate, his iconic 2006 album.

Reworking classic tracks like Kingston Town, Still Blazing, Rastafari Anthemand Herbalist, the Italian star, a resident in Jamaica since 2001, evokes the spirit of the Jamaican sound system with his mostly instrumental dub mixes defined by low seismic lines, ricocheting echo effects and clattering drum patterns.

Soul Pirate was Alborosie’s first solo album. The album, which has accrued over 200 million Spotify plays, proved a springboard to greater success, winning the Best Reggae Act gong at the 2011 MOBO (Music Of Black Origin) awards; he was the first white artist to triumph in that category. To date, Alborosie has released fifteen albums, three of which made the Top 10 of Billboard’s Reggae Chart.

The album will also be available on MQA-CD and  digital platforms.
