DubRaJah brings some real heady dub vibes on Terai, letting the full force of the subcontinental jungle take control. “Mentawi Dub” is a massive track, pulsating steppas beneath a smooth melodica; “Papua Dub” goes deep while the summoning call of “Sumatra Dub” pairs well with the twangy percussion; “Tharu Dub” is as serene as Nepal’s Bardia National Park, “Newars Dub” combines tribal drums and digital rhythms, and closer “Nepal” is a sparse, churning epic. This is clearly musical anthropology gone dub, or is that dub gone anthropological?

Indidginus' Sab Kuch Milega EP takes a worldly approach to bass, featuring numerous vocal styles while letting the beats fiercely drop. The South African producer/performer starts with well-crafted claps-and-drums on the future-electro of “Arab Spring” before nicely twisting into drum-and-bass; haunting strings introduce the track, but once the beat begins, “Vajradanti” is hardly predictable tabla but rather huge subcontinental vocal hook atop thick dubstep; final full-length “Timewave Zero” is fresh-off-the-spaceship intergalactic digital-dubstep. Also available for your listening pleasure are the Friction Labs remix of “Fitteh Moo” along with several potent minimixes. Much more than Bollywood-gone-bass, this is what happens when the tribes unite:

New Cape Town label Bombaada unleashes three fierce dubs as 7FT Soundsystem Meets Fletcher In Dub for a nice free digital download.  Billed as a “once in a lifetime” aural adventure, all avenues of the depths of dub are explored: opener “Monkey See Monkey Dub” has a classic vibe - spacey and teasing; “Monday Dub” is more melodic and uptempo, yet still light; “Evil Bush Dr. Riddim” takes a few choice vocal samples and then drops synths and basslines all over them, resulting in a rather tongue-in-cheek finale.  Hopefully more bass-xploration pops up from Bombaada in the near future…
