Über Dub Pistols
The Dub Pistols offer a cleaner, commercial-friendly presentation of Monkey Mafia's fusion of dub and Big Beat. These London hedonists -- often compared to Big Beat contemporaries the Freestylers, Lo Fidelity Allstars and the Chemical Brothers -- layer rough elements of Dub Reggae, hip-hop and Acid-oriented dance styles with a fierce Punk rock temperament in the tradition of Madchester bands like the Happy Mondays and the Stone Roses. Confident pop, rap and dub lyrics serve up revolutionary themes over contagious Crystal Method-inspired breaks, lonely horns and mean rhythms from the dark side of the island. Satisfying to open-minded Dub Reggae followers, this explosive mix fronts a readiness to rock the party that will make even the most dedicated hip-hop heads chuckle in spite of themselves.
