DUB ENGINE is a live and studio project created in 2009 by musicians Tux (dubmaster, fx) and Sabry (vocals, synth) from Bologna (ITA).
Ruff bass, acid upbeat synths, infinite delays and tons of wobbles are the trademark of Engine’s sound, part of that new generation of dub coloured by various music genres: from roots-reggae to its electronic descendants like stepper, jungle and dubstep.
Deeply influenced by UK & French new millennium dub era, they started to evolve their live style towards a new “psycho-steppa” way, an original dub musical expression where voices, effects and basslines explode in an intense high-impact psychedelic sound.
They’ve shared the stage with international dub artists like Zion Train, OBF, Alpha & Omega, Mad Professor, Martin Campbell, Jahtari, spreading their vibes in most of the festivals/clubs in Italy and Europe.
Revealed in 2010 with a 8-track release under free CC license on “Irie On Air” net-label , they appeared on several european compilations before signing “Rude Boy” in 2011 on Dubatriation Records, their first 7″ vinyl release, killer Shaka dub tune.
