Jesse King aka Dubmatix is a dub mastermind from Canada. His albums Champion Sound Clash (2005), Atomic Subsonic (2006), Renegade Rocker (2008), System Shakedown (2010) and System Shakedown Remixes (CCT 3025CD/LP) hit the spot worldwide and shook up the reggae massives all over the planet. Dubmatix is continually evolving his style, taking new influences on board on each new recording; by now it simply doesn't do justice to the incredible breadth of his work to slap a dub sticker on it. His new and fifth album feature an impressive roster of respected guest stars, including Tenor Fly, Horace Andy, Eek A Mouse, Prince Jazzbo, Earl Zero, U-Roy, Cornell Campbell, Luciano, and many, many more. These collaborations see him effortlessly incorporating all conceivable facets of reggae and dub with a striking self-assurance and combining them with an exceptional willingness to experiment and take new directions. This kaleidoscope of variety is particularly in force of this album. As well as working as a musician and producer, Jesse King is also a sought-after remixer and app designer, with recent remixes including tracks for the Easy Star All-Stars, John Brown's Body, Zion Train, Martha & The Muffins, Don Letts, and Mungo's HiFi. For this album, he spent two years in the past and a lot of time in tweaking the knobs on high-class roots tunes inna crossover style. Here, the Toronto native pushes the musical envelope further -- mixing authentic Jamaican riddims with contemporary electronica -- all with his unique and distinctive trademark sound that has made him a leader and household name among reggae and electro-dub fans worldwide.
