Hello Steve, I hope you’re well and have a good weekend lined up. Let me introduce Dub Mafia, this seven-piece band meld drum and bass, dub, dubstep, bashment, breakbeat and beat boxing together effortlessly. They’re also pretty impressive when performing live, which leads me onto my next point, Dub Mafia are playing over the next few weeks in London:
6th October – Passing Clouds, Dalston [INFO]
13th October – Bedroom Bar, Shoreditch [INFO]
11th November – Hootananny’s, Brixton [INFO]
‘Under the Radar’ is the blistering new single by Dub Mafia, taken from their much awaited debut album due for release later this year. Epitomising the archetype of a 21st Century band, Dub Mafia have forgone releasing through an imprint to their thousands of fans accrued through awesome live shows.
The single follows their debut double-A single ‘Danger/Breakneck’, which was lauded by the blogosphere as a “dreamy liquid beat – something that many Brits would describe as being a straight up “rude rhythm.” (Earmilk). Returning to the fold with ‘Under the Radar’, an epic journey that perfectly melds styles and genres without ever feeling busy, the gut-disturbing sub bass is permeated with stunning vocals and scorching guitar solos.
Since forming just two years ago, Bristol-born Dub Mafia have become one of the most formidable acts in the UK dance scene and beyond. The seven-piece band are synonymous with blending drum and bass, dub, dubstep, bashment, breakbeat and world music to create their own unique sound. And with a strict policy of ‘no backing tracks’, their live performances give an insight on how their signature style is created.
Fronted by singer Eva Lazarus, the band have earned hundreds of thousands of fans this past year. They have accrued multiple show stealing performances on the main stage at Outlook Festival, The Matscher Au Reloaded Festival and a special guest slot in Romania supporting the legendary LTJ Bukem. 2010 saw the band tour tirelessly through the UK, Germany, Holland, Denmark, Finland, Poland and Croatia.
