Stones Throw and Dub Club have teamed up to release a collection of new recordings by Jamaican sound system legends. The album Dub Club: Foundation Come Again was recorded in Jamaica and Los Angeles by Jamaican artist Tippa Lee and Dub Club’s Tom Chasteen and will be released July 16, 2013. Prior to the release, they’ll have two limited-edition dub albums mixed from the Foundation sessions. The first, Signs and Wonders in Dub, is available now.
Signs and Wonders in Dub was mixed live to tape in one take by Chasteen. The dubs were made the classic way, improvising in the moment, twisting knobs, pushing faders, reshaping a song with echo, reverb, space and time.
Chasteen says, “Dub is not just a contest to create the heaviest ever bassline, but a subtle carving away at a piece of music. The dubs on this record also keep one foot in the dancehall, where dub where was born and raised.”
Signs and Wonders features artwork by Gustavo Eandi, with art direction by Jeff Jank. Each sleeve was hand-printed by Hit+Run in East L.A., using a set of different screens and ink, resulting in one-of-a-kind sleeves.
