High Tone influenced us in our early days - we love the fact that the music crossed over old sounds with new tech and how tight the playing is.
Example: Onew Dub (Live)
You can always recognise Scientist tracks - some of the best sounding drums out there. His tunes usually only consist of drums, bass and delayed out elements, but they say more than the sum of their parts.
Example: Dance of the Vampires
We were regulars at Si Scott's monthly Sub Dub event when we were at Leeds, where Iration were residents. The sound and vibe had a big effect on us at the time, and we're still massive fans.
Example: General - Michael Rose Special:
Representing UK dub for a long time, the energy at the Vibronics live show and on their records is hard to beat. We play part of the Vibronics High Grade remix in our live show and always goes off!
Example: High Grade (Vibronics remix)
Like Vibronics, Zion Train have been right at the top of the UK dub tree for a while. They always push the envelope with their use of effects, their basslines are always on point, and Dubdadda's vocals always stick in the memory.
Example: Hailing up the Selector
