P-Dub presents East Coast Dub Cartel volume one

CAUTION : These sounds are extremely habit forming.

The East Coast Dub Cartel is a coalition of the east coast's best reggae, ska, dub and rock steady artists. The Cartel was organized by P.Dub of Predator Dub Assassins, who created this series of recordings to showcase some of the brightest talents and most interesting faces of the genre.
The distinct sound of the album may be familiar to Predator Dub Assassins fans as Dub Assassins front man P.Dub handles the writing and production and plays multiple instruments on the tracks. Though each artist has their own unique style, this lends a warm cohesiveness to the CD. The recordings were engineered at the Dub Shack utilizing session band The Dub Smugglers who both augment the bands that appear, and also provide an excellent backing to the solo artists. Members of the Dub Assassins also appear on many of the tracks.

Known Dub Cartel members include:

Predator Dub Assassins : Hard and dangerous. Responsible for numerous musical killings.

Inspecter 7 : Back on wax after 10 years. Known to move freely in U.S. ska underground.

King Django : Reputed boss in large ska smuggling ring. Faces charges for his involvement in 5 Tons of Ska flooding international markets.

Barry and the Penetrators : Extremely brazen multiple offenders. Punk, ska, reggae and dub. These guys have been on the run for a long time.

Roy Radics : International musical criminal hailing from North London, U.K. Last spotted with notorious ska/reggae gang The Rudie Crew.

Master Timo Scott : Radical dub poet and bass player with Predator Dub Assassins. Wanted for a slew of offenses. Shows a concern for the disenfranchised. Must be stopped at all costs.

Ronnie Rude : Suspected of conspiring with The Dub Smugglers to unleash an extremely potent brand of rock steady onto the streets. Forget the baby face. This guy is bad, bad news.

Stringbean & the Stalkers : Masters of disguise. These guys have been known in the past to deal mainly in blues, but their recent move into raw uncut reggae has authorities highly concerned.
