Alpha Steppa is thrilled to announce the arrival of a truly unique and international release that is bound to enthrall music lovers of every generation. Alpha and Omega, true icons of the dub world have joined forces with son and nephew Alpha Steppa to create Dub Dynasty. The record, in the words of Alpha Steppa, is "an exploration of the unrelenting force of nature and the inspirational powers that brought us together to create this record." Taking inspiration from this credo, the title Unrelenting Force is a true reflection of the power and community that dub has mastered. Alpha and Omega and Alpha Steppa have called on their favorite collaborators from the UK, Ireland, South America, New York, Jamaica and South Korea to join with them in merging their pure, unadulterated dub into one of the deepest releases ever seen. Alpha Steppa spent 2011/2012 living and creating music in Asia, and he has been rewarded with some powerful connections in South Korea. For Unrelenting Force, he has called in Koonta, a member of Rude Paper and Korean reggae duo Koonta & Nuoliunce. Another artist from Korea to feature on the release is up-and-coming melodica wunderkind Smiley Song. Singing on "Chicken and the Cow and the Buffalo" and "Goodness" is N'goni, one of the most exciting and mysterious new lyricists/singers to hit the scene. "Monsoon Come" features the Dublin-based South American singer Ras Tinny, and there is also an appearance by Dub Judah of Dub Jockey label fame -- one of the most respected names in UK dub. Linval Thompson is considered one of the essential contributors to reggae and its message in its 1970s golden era. Featured here on the dub "Long Time," Thompson's vocals are as memorable as they are powerful. Last but not least, Cian Finn contributes his unique blend of Celtic spirit and rootikal dub to "9 Years" and "Dub Island." This album is powered by bass -- the kind of bass that can reverberate through your whole body and lift you into another time and place. Raw, pure and unadulterated dub. The CD version contains bonus mixes and dubs.
