One of the country’s best-loved live acts to emerge from the recent burgeoning Kiwi Music scene, “pumping rock-roots, reggae, soul-ska, dub”
A sound driven by the unified groove of six core members joined intently in the musical collective. A fusion of the authentic roots styles combined with a contemporary approach to creating conscious music for the soul.
Renown for their ‘cranking and skanking’ live shows, the band never fails to ignite and connect with the crowd and they have become firm favourites at many nationwide outdoor festivals in NZ including Splore, Queenstown Winter Festival, Soundsplash and Rhythm & Vines
The debut long player from dDub, Awake At Dawn, is the culmination of several years of developing the dDub style, and the realisation of a long-held dream. ‘This album is a milestone in the dDub journey’ says lead vocalist Derek Browne. ‘To finally have the songs recorded and set in time for people to actually take away with them is fantastic.’ The first single lifted from the album, The flow, received airplay nationwide, with the video being nominated for the Juice TV awards. The second single, Comfort, is currently being released to radio and Music TV. The song Give Up Your Love has become an extensively played kiwi track, with the video winning ‘Best Independantly Produced Clip’ at the 2004 Juice TV Awards.
