We have featured Dub Terminator & Ras Stone as a track of the week here before with the ‘Bad Mind’ single and remixes, but this new cut from the Auckland producer and Wellington chanter is just too good to be overlooked.
Pushing forward with his own distinctive electro/roots style, Dub Terminator serves up a fresh original rhythm which simultaneously incorporates the best of both reggae and dubstep styles. Ras Stone lays down a strictly conscious voice-over imploring us to give praise to the most high.
Yes, there is autotune and there is also a wobbly bassline but these contemporary flourishes are never overdone and can’t disguise that this tune is still essentially a righteous roots anthem. This one is currently running on high rotation at the dub headquarters right now.
To date the pair have recorded some ten songs together, so with a little more time in the studio I anticipate that a full length album release is not too far away. For those folk that like an excess amount of step in their dub I have also included below a link to Dub Terminator’s raggastep remix of Skrillex & Damian Marley’s ‘Mek It Bun Dem’, which was his entry in the recent Beatport Play competition.
