"Since its formation in 1984, KMFDM has been regarded as one of the driving forces in industrial/rock. But the band has always incorporated elements of many musical styles to create its trademark ultra heavy beat. 2019's Paradise proved this, exhibiting the heaviest infusion of funk & dub sounds the since such landmark albums as 1988's UAIOE and 1990's Naïve. Now KMFDM takes things to the next level with In Dub, reinterpreting some of the group's best known songs of its 35 year career into a blistering display of chilled out grooves and spaced out atmospheres. The world is held in the tightening grip of sociopolitical upheaval, so it's fitting that Sascha 'Käpt'n K' Konietzko should reach back to KMFDM's earliest roots in dub to present a fresh take on what it truly means to 'Rip the System!' 'Everything old is new again,' sings Lucia Cifarelli on 'Real Dub Thing,' perfectly defining the power of IN DUB. Mosh pit anthems reimagined into meditative grooves, laden with horns, organs, and slithering bass lines as on 'A Dub Against War,' 'Hau Dub,' and the opening 'Dub Light.' Andrew 'Ocelot' Lindsley's incendiary rapping on 'K?M?F Dub' and Cifarelli's vicious, vivacious vocals shine 'Superhero Dub,' 'Amnesia Dub,' and especially on the in-your-face electrified sonic assault of 'Rebelz Dub.' Andee Blacksugar's guitar textures and angular solos give In Dub an extra dash of audio intrigue, making this KMFDM's most unique outing. With a long history of addressing political issues and encouraging social revolution In Dub proves that KMFDM remains as powerful a voice for rebellion as ever. Angry, hopeful, tranquil, energetic, In Dub is no mere remix album -- this is KMFDM looking to its original inspirations, making a pure, honest statement that the world no longer need be a paradise for assholes. 'Dub & reggae music has been one of the greatest & most constant musical influence to me, I have been nurturing the idea of making this album for so many years, & here we go!' --Sascha K."
