Bio

You could call Brisbane outfit DUBMARINE many things, but unforgettable is probably top of the list. When you see this band live, you know you’ll walk away with a grin on your face and sweat on your brow. Smashing together dub, dancehall, reggae, drum n bass, and just a little touch of rock, the nine-piece tour-de-force is now set to unleash the first single – Beat in Control – from their highly anticipated second album due in the second half of 2013. Beat in Control offers the first taste of the floor-shaking new record and will be online everywhere through SUGARRUSH on March 8. Backed by a powerful brass section and lead by the vocal gymnastics of Indigenous superstar and Gangulu man D-Kazman, Dubmarine have a mission – to produce bass crunching, rhythm pounding, hip shaking modern music fusing elements of music from all around the world. And that’s exactly where they have taken their music over the past few years – around the world. Building on a run of acclaimed releases – including the 2010 debut album Depth of Sound – the band has earned fans around the globe, drawn to a near legendary live show. In Europe they have hit stages and festivals throughout Germany, the Netherlands, Belgium and The Czech Republic and this year, they were invited to perform at the truly unique Sakifo festival in the Reunion Islands. Meanwhile back home in Australia, their star continues to rise thanks to Bluesfest Byron Bay, WOMADelaide, Woodford Folk Festival, The Dreaming Festival, Good Vibrations, Parklife, Island Vibe, Reggaetown alongside numerous appearances at the annual BIGSOUND music industry showcase in Brisbane. Dubmarine’s live show is built on catalogue of killer releases including Depth of Sound that feature the band’s trademark bass-driven foundations, twin trombone blasts and thunderous synth explosions. Winning support from media and radio across the country, the releases have picked up a run of Queensland Music Awards nominations and have been featured on the annual national HOME compilations profiling the country’s best new Indigenous artists. 2013 will not only see the band continue to light up stages, but they will at last take the wraps off their new album that takes the bands sound to a whole new level.

This just has a killer feel to it. From the deep metallic production to the stuttering horns, it's got a real heaviness to it. Brilliant stuff.

Doing dub the way it was done before 'step' got to it. Which is to say chugging bass and brass, albeit with added vocal hooks and DIY sci-fi costumes.

Wow, this is heavy! Makes my bones rattle and brain thud and the rush of energy it emits is infectious.
