Are you ready to do something good by listening to good music? To allow the content of this post to our friends from other countries, i’ll write this one in english. Finally we can present to you our Charity Project Social Sounds From Planet Dub, that features 18 tracks from international Dub & Reggae Artists to help Refugee Kids in Germany.
The Idea for the project came late 2014, when a dark wave of the radical right-wing called PEGIDA (patriotic Europeans against the islamification of the occident) came over Germany. To fight against this foolishness and ignorance, we had to build a sign and help Refugees that had to leave their country. After asking some artists from the basscomesaveme Contact List and others, we just got positive Feedback for this idea. We had the luck to get some serious Tunes for this Compilation, finding a really good social Project in the region of Thuringia, Germany and after 4 months of planning we can proudly present to you this Project called: SOCIAL SOUNDS FROM PLANET DUB
The Compilation features some heavy Tunes, lots of them are unreleased Material and Tunes that been produced for this Project. We begin with a Song by High Smile HiFi outta Switzerland, who teamed up with oldschool toaster Capra Dread from Italy. On Social Rub A Dub you’ll get a nice Digital Dub Riddim that is topped by some social chants. From England we have a deadly combination that is formed by Choepak Dubs, Shaman Dubs and Interrupt. The England Riddim provides us with some heavy UK Style, that keeps you jumping. Back in Germany we have the mighty iLLBiLLY HiTEC with Longfingah and Tribuman. The Song Head Up, we all know, was remixed and bassed up to maximum by the man called Max Powa. You don’t know about hungarian Dub?
