Exploring organic styles of Dub like few others, JahYu's very own Tripedal Crow Records ventures off into five uncharted sound system excursions. Expressing his Korean heritage through sound, the Hamburg-based artist and label operator has firmly embedded himself in the national and global Roots and Dub scene, including a notable affiliation with the fulminant Steppas Records. Now on the controls for the imprints subsequent release - the man himself with full force and spirit.

Immersing yourself in the sonic jungle, 'Intimacy' unveils slow-motion drums, reverberating into a beautiful low-frequency foundation. Amidst the vibrant bass-line tribal drums keep the groove in full swing - livid skanks propelling the arrangement onwards as distorted overtones carry the weight. Dub-wise instrumentation flows in cohesive harmony, a common denominator of this profound release. Next up we turn to 'Dub Anarchist' - a melting pot of rising anticipation as ephemeral flutes pace amidst its fierce rhythm. Unleashing warrior sounds of revolution and urging action, no choice but to skank alongside invigorating lead melodies and drums in a stepper's style.

'Fake Dub' commences with broken, granular beats - haunting echoes luring keen listeners into JahYu's innovative take on combining musical elements from the past and present in an organic fashion. Authentic harmonies stacked on top providing the profound musical message. In a distinctively activist approach, 'Take Action' dispatches distant string fragments, recoiling in unbridled weight and power. A stripped down armament, designed for the dance and its audience, ruling the sound system with an iron fist. At the zenith of this sonic journey, the finale awaits. Within the sounds of 'Public Madness' - a hypnotic low-frequency meditation unfolds, driven by percussive vigor and spheric atmosphere. Forward-thinking and roots-conscious Dub music, guaranteed to be heard on sound systems all over the globe.
