Bio

Mind aware. Dub heavy. We've been shifting and mutating our sound for years, mixing up members, arrangements, instruments and styles. We mix live instrumentation with live analog and digital FX manipulation into a live experience channeling the studio dub sound. We love everything from reggae, dub, afro and dance hall to psych-rock, fuzz, hip-hop and noise. We took out the 2014 WAMi Best World Music Act for our single Thundercracker Dub, out on Community Records and available on wax from Rhubarb Records. We are not a world music band.

"…some of the most genuine-sounding dub the Perth scene has to offer.” -themusic.com.au
