Subatomic Sound presents DUB CHAMPIONS FESTIVAL 2013 Opening Night in NYC with Deadly Dragon Sound
Dub Champions Festival day 1! Warm up on the first night of the festival in NYC with a Thursday institution, Deadly Dragon Sound’s weekly rub-a-dub party, right around the corner from the Deadly Dragon record shop, is temporarily homeless with the closing of Happy Ending, so we will be throwing the opening party downstairs at The Delancey: dedicated vinyl selectors (aka DJs) with DJs (aka MCs) rocking the mic, preserving the Jamaican sound system culture from which dub originally evolved.
This will be the US debut of India’s first sound system crew, Reggae Rajahs out of New Delhi. Always expect surprise guests. Vibes come correct. The night will start bubbling early, 7pm, with Carter Van Pelt, radio host of Eastern Standard Time – WKCR 89.9 FM and the long running Coney Island Reggae on the Boardwalk summer beach parties.
ABOUT THE FESTIVAL
The third annual Dub Champions Festival is a 5 day journey into the international musical phenomenon called “dub” a style characterized by heavy bass, drums, and copious use of effects, where the producers become the artists and the mixing board becomes an instrument. The festival features both performances & educational workshops to exhibit how the music is created and has evolved from the original roots in Jamaican reggae of the 1970s to becoming a cornerstone of the future of electronic bass music. Along the way it has redefined the role of producer and influenced and inspired countless artists and genres from rap to rock to punk to dance music.
Dub Champions Festival was founded in New York City by Emch from Subatomic Sound (www.SubatomicSound.com) and third annual USA festival takes place this year in New York City, Washington DC, & Philadelphia.
