Dub Spencer and Trance Hill – A psychedelic brew for Freedom Sounds Festival
Dub Spencer & Trance Hill’s brew of psychedelic Dub-Reggae with Rock, Electronica and Trance influences is quite unique. On their ten albums so far, these Swiss Dub masters have deconstructed and reinvented tunes from all sorts of sources – The Clash, Lee Perry, Damian Marley, Seeed, Spaghetti Western movies, Genesis’ Mama, Falco’s Jeanny or Grauzone’s Eisbär. In true Dub spirit, there are simply no boundaries. While they brilliantly maintain the spirit of dub, Dub Spencer & Trance Hill are not afraid to twist and spice things up in order to create something fresh.
What most dub acts can achieve in the studio only, really comes alive on stage, congenially mixed and dubbed live by Umberto Echo from Munich. In September they had the honour of playing the farewell (and sold out) show at Cologne’s Underground Club – a wild night many people will not forget.
