LIONDUB (Brooklyn, NYC)
(Liondub International / Konkrete Jungle / Breakbeat Science / Earwax / The Agriculture / Lustre Kings / Halcyon)
DJ Liondub comes correct. An authentic product of Brooklyn, his musical mindset was formed at the crossroads of major international bass vibrations originating from Jamaica, NYC and the UK. Inspired by the global rhythm culture emanating from the streets beneath his feet, Liondub has spent a lifetime pounding that very pavement in pursuit of his passion for bottom-heavy beats.
Between stints as a wax warrior one can find Liondub in the studio honing the flipside of his craft. His steady stream of productions converged with the with Toronto-based producer Marcus Visionary resulting in the launch of Liondub International. The label has been sending massive waves through the sub-frequency obsessed bandwidth, peaking (so far) with “The General” featuring Jahdan Blakkamoore, a riddim co-produced with Matt Shadetek of the Dutty Arts crew that has been tipped as one of the top Ragga-influenced dubstep tracks of 2009. With ongoing support from baller jocks like Annie, Nightingale, Rusko, Ramadanman, Remarc, Benny Page,
Chrissy Chris and MJ Cole, 2010 looks to be a year of exceptional promise for the upstart international imprint.
So whether behind the decks as a DJ, behind the boards as a producer / engineer or behind the scenes as a label executive, event producer and record shop buyer, it is Liondub’s uncommon ability to flow between these kindred yet surprisingly disparate musical spheres that distinguishes his creative vision and defines his professional ethos. What emerges from Liondub’s wide angle view of Dub history is an improbable yet fresh way forward that balances the warm soul and raw spontaneity of a Kingston Dancehall sound system with the exacting precision of a London Drum and Bass technician. That’s no easy mission, but one Liondub delivers
