ABOUT THE RELEASE:
Dub Gabriel hits us with his most thought-provoking and subversive tracks to date, highlighting the dilemma facing our global society as people take to the streets striking out against hunger, poverty, war, government corruption and the rise of corporate cultural hegemony. Joined by pioneering UK dubstep MC, The Spaceape (Kode9/Burial) on the incendiary title track ‘Is This Revolution’, and Chicago’s Mighty Dub Killerz on the flip for the soulful call to action of ‘These Times’ - together they deliver a lyrical mind-bomb that invokes the spirits of Linton Kwesi Johnson, The Clash and Gil Scott-Heron for a new generation.
ABOUT DUB GABRIEL:
Bass music pioneer Dub Gabriel has been pushing the low-end spectrum since his start at NYC’s legendary Limelight Club in the 90′s. Now, as part of the Akai Pro Artist family, he travels the globe with his APC40 breaking down the barriers between DJ’ing and live electronic performance. His trailblazing style has created much demand on the international club and festival circuits (most recently playing to capacity crowds in a headline slot at this year’s Fusion Festival in Germany), and has seen him perform regularly alongside a truly diverse set of cutting-edge artists that include Benga, Bomb Squad, Kode9, DJ Craze, Scientist, Meat Beat Manifesto, Zion Train and François K (with whom he is a regular guest for the past 7 years at Cielo’s celebrated Deep Space night in NYC). When not on the road, Dub Gabriel is immersed in the studio creating critically acclaimed projects that include a recent string of heavy-hitters featuring U-Roy, Michael Stipe (REM), MC Zulu, Yo! Majesty, Jahdan Blakkamoore and 77Klash (both known for their work w/ Major Lazer). His unique take on Global Bass Music has led to many commissioned remixes, including some recent standouts for Balkan Beat Box and Dubblestandart feat. Lee Scratch Perry & David Lynch. Under the guise of Jajouka Soundsystem, he recently worked with Bachir Attar (of the Master Musicians of Jajouka) and David J (Bauhaus/Love & Rockets) – their critically acclaimed first track, ‘Salahadeen’, is featured on the groundbreaking Generation Bass ‘Transnational Dubstep’ compilation on Six Degrees Records.
