04.11.11 - Hahn Solo of Dub Is A Weapon selects


Today on Deadly Dragon Sounds, the crew welcomes Dave Han of Dub Is A Weapon , to the EVR studio. Dave and his cohort Larry have a new album coming out on April 26 and we'll be sure to hear all about what comprises this latest release.

Inspired by the dub productions of legendary producer King Tubby, Dave Hahn formed Dub Is A Weapon to make dub music as well, but wanted to take it out of the studio and perform it live. With help from a Jamaican beatnik percussionist (Larry McDonald, who had played on several crucial Bob Marley cuts in Jamaica and had since backed up American icons from Taj Mahal to Gil-Scott Heron to Bad Brains), an old high school friend, and young upstarts from the Brooklyn scene, Dave has honed their live take on the genre’s spaced-out grooves. This sound is felt in full force on tour as Lee “Scratch” Perry’s backing band and most recently on their soon-to-be-released album Vaporized.
