Also a possible gig the 16th in Sweden in either Stockholm or Norrköping. Ill let you know when I know. Keep yourself updated on all my live-dates at my myspace. Hophop!


The Wire

Posted in Attention with tags on February 25, 2008 by dubmood

I noticed that a pretty akward review of my Jahtari Chip-SKA EP was published in the english techno/dub/etc musicmag The Wire. Pretty funny, must say the Jahtarians are good at promotion! ❤ ❤
Anyway, hard to tell if its possitive or negative, really. The reviewer seems more chocked and confused.

Dubmood is a ‘chip-music’ artist from Gothenburg now operating out of Marseillie, with a library of over 300 different pieces composed on Amiga, PC, Atari ST and Gameboy for numerous pieces of cracked software, chip music disks and 8-bit compilations.
This EP gets in a rush with the opener, a version of The Skatalites’ classic “(Theme from) Exodus” from the movie of the same name, followed by a cover of “Kick De Bucket” by The Liberators. The version of The Maytals’ “Pressure Drop” is enough to induce hypertension in serious Clash fans (which Clash fans are not serious?), with the Toots soul scorcher done over in a Fisher Price style.
But the most seriously deranged track here is “VodSka-Dance”, apparently featuring a popular Russian folk tune which buzzes uncontrollably around your head long after the music dies. The final track, the catchily titled “dbug-cd197”, is a collaboration with chip music roots rocker GOTO 80. It’s not dub as we know it, but the strain is mutating rapidly

Almost like a diskmag (Btw did I tell you about my interview in the latest Pain diskmag? if not let me know and Ill fill you out on that too). Anyway, check it out! Btw sorry for the absence of songs but I ran out of time to get a new batch out. Patience! I havnt frogot about your need for blipblop!

Dubmood on M6

Posted in Attention on February 23, 2008 by dubmood

Dubmood featured on french TV M6. Not that very creative since the idea of the reportage was that all of the audience of M6 should understand what its about. And then cut down to 1minute. But hey its the mainstream media! (that explains the super mario tune they forced me to put there). Still fun! “avec ton propre sound tu est unique!” hell yeah! I bet gwEm is glad maxymizer passed on TV too. Primetime and all that. hop hop! Click click click

Léonard de Léonard – Elephantizer (Facteur remix)

Posted in Remixes with tags on February 13, 2008 by dubmood

Time to give heads up to the locals. Facteur from Tcheaz who recently contacted me wich lead to me changing opinion about marseille lacking good new electro as I previously stade in an interview =) This guy is extremly promising and im hoping to hear more from him soon. But I have no clue why he is naming songs after swedish glam-metalrockers, maybe its a french thing to like Europe since I noticed during the freesson residance that Sidabitball also likes them. Or maybe its a joke I dont get because all I can think of when seeing his name is the Percy Tårar Expressen Fredag scetches. ^^ Anyway big up for Facteur! hop hop!
