Wrongtom Meets The Ragga Twins release 'In Dub'
Published: Tue 3rd Oct, 2017
‘In Dub’ is the new album of dub mixes by roots and reggae producer Wrongtom and Hackney’s veteran breakbeat/ jungle MC’s the Ragga Twins. Remixing tracks from their ‘In Time’ album released earlier this year, Wrongtom dissects and then rebuilds each track with a new lease of life. ‘In Dub’was fronted by two singles, “Bacchanal” and “Follow Fashion”, and as excitement for the ‘In Time’ album grows,the project has picked up spins from David Rodigan, Steve Lamacq and Lauren Laverne,glowing reviews from MOJO, Q, Mixmag and The Wire, a Vinyl Factory premiere for “The Vibes”, and a Clash premiere for the Murder He Wrote remix of the most recent single “Follow Fashion”.
Continuing an important tradition in reggae, Wrongtom reveals that the art of remixing originated with dubbing: “It was a pivotal moment where the producer became the artist, rather than the old tradition of the buttoned-down guy telling the artist what to do or play” he explains. “I also love the second-hand nature of dub. I'm all about hand-me-downs and reusing old things from clothes to the music gear in my studio, so why not do that with tracks I've made too?”.
