Dub-Stuy presents ECHO CHAMBER: Tour De Force (ft. Ranking Joe) Dub Gabriel, Ticklah, True Nature at The Paper Box [10PM/$15]

We’re BIG supporters of Dub-Stuy – they’re a pillar of soundsystem culture in NYC. Not only does their custom-built 12,000 watt soundsystem look and sound GORGEOUS, but their events are always expertly curated. Check out the interview we did with the founder, Q, on the eve of their launch event

Saturday, they have another killer lineup. Tour De Force is the roots-oriented dubstep project of Dub-Stuy’s founders, Q and Double Tiger, featuring a rotating cast of emcees. It’s exactly what I want to hear on that system. This time out, they have legendary toaster Ranking Joe, who has been an integral part of soundsystem culture since the 70s.

Dub Gabriel has an epic resume, but what really matters is that he fits right in with the Dub-Stuy sound – his 4th LP, Raggabass Resistance, fuses a heavy dub aesthetic with incredibly tasteful digital production and an allstar cast of dub vocalists (Jahdan, Juakali, The Spaceape, Warrior Queen, Brother Culture, MC Zulu, etc).

We’ll be treated to a roots reggae set from Ticklah, producer and keys for the Easy Star Allstars (of Dub Side of The Moon and Radiodread fame). He’s also a founding member of Sharon Jones & The Dap-Kings AND Antibalas Afrobeat Orchestra. Man knows dub. Rounding out this monstrous lineup is True Nature, resident at RECONSTRVCT and a true master of the opening slot – that’s a huge compliment, by the way.

10PM – Ticklah (Easy Star, Liondub)
11:30PM – Dub Gabriel (Destroy All Concepts ✈ SF)
1AM – Tour De Force Soundsystem ft. Ranking Joe (Dub Stuy)
2:30 – True Nature (RECONSTRVCT, 4th Temple)
