Dubbest
Dubbest
Since 2009, Dubbest has been forging its own path through the heavily forested reggae landscape, expertly infusing roots traditionalism with a refreshing improvisational savvy that calls to mind not only the studio experimentation of pioneering dub producers Osbourne “King Tubby” Ruddock and Lee “Scratch” Perry but also the real-time exploration of jam bands like the Grateful Dead and Phish. As friends in high school, guitarist Andrew MacKenzie, singer/melodica player Ryan Thaxter , bassist Sean Craffey, guitarist Cory Mahoney, and drummer Kyle Hancock shared a love of pop-punk and ska, bonding over bands like Black Flag, until they caught wind of Augustus Pablo’s 1974 dub classic Ital Dub. This was the gamechanger that set the stage for their current musical approach: using introspective, spacious bass and drum grooves to anchor a thickly-textured interplay of instruments, vocals, and timbres. With their third album, Light Flashes, Dubbest is poised for national recognition.

DubHaiku
DubHaiku
Dub Haiku may be from the small mountain town of Lyons, Colorado, but their music brings such pure reggae vibes you'd think you were chilling on a warm beach by the ocean. The 4 piece group spins their own version of the classic genre, bringing elements of roots, dub, hip hop, and modern jam. The band formed in 2017 and quickly dropped a self-released EP, recorded just months after their lineup began to solidify. The four track EP demonstrates their original songwriting skills, and is just a glimpse of what the future holds for these crusaders of modern reggae. Dub Haiku maintains a steady schedule of local shows in the Boulder/Denver area, gaining new fans and venue support with their raw and entertaining shows.
