Raggabass Resistance is the groundbreaking 4th album release from critically acclaimed ragga/dubstep pioneer, Dub Gabriel. Three years in the making and spanning multiple continents, he has been on an epic bass-fueled journey that saw him enlist the support of an incredible crew of collaborators - U-Roy, Warrior Queen, The Spaceape (Kode9/Burial), Brother Culture (On-U/Mungo’s Hi Fi), Jahdan Blakkamoore (Major Lazer/Snoop Lion), Dr. Israel, MC Zulu, Juakali, PJ Higgins (Temple of Sound), David J (Bauhaus/Love & Rockets), Pedro Erazo (Gogol Bordelo), and Mark Pistel (Hercules & Love Affair) - they all come together in an electro-organic stew of future reggae sounds to create Dub Gabriel’s most realized and ambitious album to date.
Originally from Chicago, and now living in San Francisco (by way of Brooklyn and Berlin), Dub Gabriel got his start at New York’s legendary Limelight Club in the late 90’s, which quickly gained him significant press coverage in major publications including Interview Magazine, The New York Times and Time Out New York, and launched him as one of America’s premier producers and DJ’s. A tireless innovator, his musical explorations have taken him the furthest reaches of electronic, rock and world music, appearing on over 25 releases that include collaborations with Michael Stipe of REM, and The Master Musicians of Jajouka, and a string of massive remixes for artists such as Balkan Beat Box and Dubblestandart feat. director David Lynch & reggae legend Lee Scratch Perry.
