Going like a Ghost -Dub Renaissance EP

Habe nun ein paar meiner Tracks, die ich in letzter Zeit am Computer arrangiert habe, auf Soundcloud hochgeladen.

Dub Renaissance EP is a mixture of dub elements, primarily vocal samples and drum patterns, within an electronic music style. The tracks contain deeply arranged sound elements in order to enhance the dynamics of the songs.

Dub was the first electronic genre in modern music history and many dub-versions of songs in the 1980’s were created as remixes. Going Like A Ghost’s “Dubtronix“ like release was influenced by dub as a genre by itself and also by the variety of electronic music styles that refer to dub as their sample / sound source.

The five tracks on the EP focus on widely known dub elements and put together new ones into one whole. “MezzaninDub“ features “western-sound“ elements while “Triotrio“ focusses on the bassdrum and a 4-to-the-floor beat with a steady  bassline. “Madrasp“ is also a deep and techno-orientated track, which could be labelled as dubtechno. On the other hand, “Santanda“ and “Demiandub“ work more in a static manner and feature a typical triphop like beat-aesthetic.

The release can be seen as a declaration of love to dub music and their representing artists. – Vocal samples on “Santander” by Dillinger (CB 200; Island Records).
