The crew from rainy Brest city, with charismatic frontman Pupa Jim, will visit Prague on 30th January 2016 for the first time. This eclectic audio-visual show will take a place at the <a href="http://www.meetfactory.cz/">MeetFactory</a>. t’s a collaboration between three different institutions. As a part of the 10th anniversary of Radio Wave’s show “Scéna s Jakubem Johánkem”, in cooperation with the guys from New Wave Praha, and as another installment of the International Dub Convention sound system sessions. All powered through the heavyweight Black Diamond Sound System and with support from some of the finest acts from czech dub scene.</p> <p>Stand High Patrol are not a typical french dub project. selecta Rootystep, operator Mac Gyver and MC Pupa Jim have been presenting from early 2000s with a hybrid & dynamic style, which they like to call “Dub a Dub”. Their production is heavily inspired by the 80’s era of digital reggae, like Mungo's HiFi, Conscious Sounds or Jahtari, but their style easily crosses boundaries of dub music. The latest album of Brest’s musketeers “Matter of Scale” was released on their own label Stand High Records in the beginning of 2015. The full Stand High crew will be visiting Prague with their new member, and trumpet player, Merry.</p> <p>Local support in MeetFactory will represent some of the top acts on the Czech dub scene. Long time active sound crew, dub parties organisers and owners of the first Czech dub record label United Forces of Dub. Also, Slovakian born DJ & producer <a href="http://www.riddimtuffa.co.uk/">Riddim Tuffa</a>,who is currently based in Prague but regularly tours around Europe. Both acts mentioned above are also responsible for a soundsystem session series called International Dub Convention. Petr Mikovec, Jakub Johanek and Dj Teamatique will be joined by percussionist Martin Krejci as they will celebrate the 10th anniversary of Radio Wave’s show “Scena z Jakubem Johankem” (ex Dubovy High).

When you reach a party branded this way, you will probably find a couple of soundsystem “walls”, that are situated around the whole space and keep changing turns in playing out. You might know this concept, which has become a world phenomenon and is gaining more on more popularity around Europe, for example from a legendary London regular dub night* University Of Dub*, which presents not-only UK key soundsystems, such as* Jah Shaka, Aba Shanti I, Iration Steppas* or *King Shiloh*. Thanks to the interaction, which keeps flowing between the sounds during the whole night, dub conference is an experience, which is undoubtedly very special and unique and that can't be felt during any usual concert or party.</p> <p>As this is going to be the first event of such kind in Prague area, we have invited a special guest, who is more than familiar with this concept - the best known scottish ambassadors of the bass culture – *Mungo's HiFi*. Mungo's HiFi is a sound, which has been tirelessly promoting reggae and dub and also contemporary genres, such as dubstep or trap since their founding. They regularly release their own production on their labels *Scotch Bonnet*and *Scrub A Dub* and travel the world on tours around various countries and festivals. They played e.g. at last year's Uprising in Slovakia and Outlook in Croatia, where they are in charge of one of main stages every year. Mungo's HiFi have performed in the Czech Republic in the past, on a festival Real Beat, where they brought their own soundsystem, they also played around several venues in this country. For our session they are bringing a Nigeria-born *El Fata*, who is based in London and is a much sought-after singer, cooperating with many producers such as digital fanatics *Jahtari, Mungo's HiFi *or Prague-based* Riddim Tuffa*.</p> <p> *Riddim Tuffa* is also going to be one of the local performers on the night longside czech dub veterans *United Forces of Dub* with a Kenyan vocalist* Fireson Bantu* on the microphone, *Intuitive Lab *from Zlin and his live act or Czech/French *Fyah Sound*. The sound is going to be provided by *R2D2*, *Bashment Bass Foundation*, *Raggaultras* and* FMP*, who all are also going to perform. The solid sound will be supported by a visual show of a VJ crew* Moire*.</p> <p> Such an unique event belongs in an unique space, which definitely is an industrial zone *Nákladové nádraží Žižkov*. So it's time to note down *Friday 6th June 2014* and get ready for something Prague has never seen before!</p> 2014-05-17T15:01:03+02:00 Dub Force Community Radio show http://www.unitedforces.cz/en/home.php?d=28 United Forces of Dub <center> <b>United Forces Of Dub 04/04/2014 the Internet</b><br/> </center><br/><br/> <p> Friday 4th of April 2014 - listen our radio show an the on-line community radio <a href="http://www.dubforceradio.com/">dub force</a>.

We are summoning all reggae and dub heads for we are coming with yet another hot stuff. As was announced earlier we have worked with the RiddimShot band and now is the time for the revelation. There are three tracks based on the musical background of the a forenamed band. The riddim carries itself in a best roots reggae tradition with Mustakillah Studio's sound imprint. Again there are artists from different corners of the world featured behind mic. Jamaica, United Kingdom and Kenya are represented by Sandeeno, Dark Angel and Fireson.</p> <p>Release party will take place in Cross club as usual featuring vocalists Sandeeno and Fireson live with RiddimShot band and they will accompany United Forces of Dub during their sound system set. Warm up will be provided by duo Petr Mikovec and Jakub Johanek and finished by local Fyah Sound. Basement stage will feature Roots'n'Future DJs.</p><br/> <h2>Sandeeno</h2> <p>Sandeeno was born in Birmingham Great Britain however he grew up and was raised in Manchester county Jamaica in the same community where artists like Garnet Silk or Tony Rebel grew up. He started his musical career as deejay Superman accompanied by his colleague Spiderman. They got recognized by audience quickly with their debut album produced by Ranking Joe. During following years they cooperated with different producers and were releasing with crucial labels like King Jammy's, Shocking Vibes or Penthouse. The real breakthrough happened to be the album "IT AIN'T EASY" in '93 which was warmly welcomed by critics followed by a tour around Switzerland. After the tour duo Superman Spiderman split up. Spiderman returned back to Jamaica and Superman, now as Sandeeno, stayed in Europe. He settled in England where he had a major success with his hit song "TEAR DOWN BABYLON" from the eponymous album. The single climbed up to the first position in reggae chart where it stayed for several months and it lived to see many remixes including the most famous one released by the cult label Knowledge & Wisdom. Sandeeno, thanks to his original performance and brilliant voice, became successful musician which lead him to cooperation with elite producers like Gussie P, Blacker Dread or studio Fashion. Thematic album "GUNCRIME GONE CRAZY" where he proved genre effervescence from roots to dub from ragamuffin to r'n'b was released after the start of a new millennium. At the present he works with well known British producer Dougie Wardrop (Bush Chemists) and their latest work is last year's album called "THE HEATHENS" on Conscious sounds brand with hit tune "BAD MIND" also known from our 10" single.</p><br/> <h2>Fireson</h2> <p>Fireson Bantu is an artist who doesn't need much introducing. Local audience knows him well for his tune "BABYLON WAAN TEAR ME" on our "Amiga Riddim" and by many performances around Czech Republic and lately for his cooperation with another local production Cocojammin. Fireson is talented hope of Kenyan and hopefully the whole African reggae. Music influenced him since his early years and soon he started getting involved. He got recognized by public in 2005 with his single NAIROBI TOO ROUGH on Ark-Angel Records. He supported his growing popularity with other hits like GOD BLESS or SHE WANT FIRE on the same label. Tune POLICE BRUTALITY became huge success sung together with Jamaican reggae star Ginjah. Fireson lives in Prague at the moment and concentrates on studio production mainly with United Forces crew and live sound system performances or concerts around Europe.</p><br/> <h2>Riddimshot</h2> <p>Czech band Riddimshot works on a music scene in different team configurations since 2001. Since its foundation they mainly performed as backing band with singers like King Kalabash, Baron Black, U-cee and others. The ever developing show of the band merges from roots reggae sound to modern shape of reggae, dancehall, dub and hip-hop. At the present, next to well coordinated rhythm section, band consist of experienced musicians playing and cooperating with bands like United Flavour, Svihadlo and so. The core idea of what Riddimshot are involved in is, apart from making their own studio productions, their development as a quality backing band being able to support artists throughout the genres of modern urban music. They also have prepared a show with already mentioned singer Fireson Bantu.</p> 2012-11-21T20:54:23+01:00 Digital downloads, OBF and so ... http://www.unitedforces.cz/en/home.php?d=23 United Forces of Dub <p>Although it seems quiet there's lot of things going on.

We focused on promoting our works, for example, our „Label Showcase“ in London has been a success or we had a show on the, currently biggest soundsystem culture festival, Outlook. All these things helped us to establish the brand on international dub scene. In the same time we were gathering materials for next releases so you can expect a fresh batch of music.</p> <p>First record to come out is a project „AMIGA“ riddim on which we've been working together with respected Czech producer Syncro. It has been recorded not only at home base studios Mustakillah and Gunjah but also at Conscious Sounds in London and uniquely at Syncro's mobile studio in Nairobi(Kenya). It is an international project putting together conscious artists from different places of the world. Solo Banton from United Kingdom, Rueben Mystic from Jamaica, Juakali from United States, young singers from Africa Dada Afrik & Kalcia and a talented artist Fireson from Nairobi. Although from different places, the artist are united on this record lyrically, focusing in one way or the other on the many faces of Babylon, being it state, society or police brutality.</p> <p>Every new record needs to be celebrated and in the case of this new 12 inch it will be under the inspection of seasoned artists. First is a legend of British reggae and jungle, Tenor Fly, he's going to go back to his roots and bring a reggae-dub show inna soundsystem style. Next to him will perform headliner of the new record Solo Banton who is now one of the most sought after deejays. Third overseer of the celebration is going to be a special guest directly from Nairobi(Kenya), Fireson, who is on his first visit to Europe ever. Last but not least is going to be our local MC Ras Jahdone.<br/> One thing is clear, packed schedule and superb line up is not accepting any apologies.

This is event is a beggining of a new irregular series called "International Dub Convention" where we want to present current dub culture from different places from Europe. It will be all in our best tradition, with the usual stall full of records, irie up magazines and other merchandise and with extra sound system, this time we will be proudly baptising new hand-built bass boxes from our family, the Roots'n'Future sound system. We're gonna shake the Cross to the bones so if you are sensitive bring some earplugs. So what we've prepared? Firstly, a Jamaican singer <a href="http://www.myspace.com/jahreubenmystic">Jah Ruben Mystic</a> will appear alongside ourselves. Secondly, our invitation accepted a foundation dub sound from Zagreb, Croatia, <a href="http://www.myspace.com/digitronsoundsystem">Digitron Sound System</a> and also as a little surprise <b>Mark Dub</b> from Bristol's <a href="http://www.dubrevolution.co.uk/">Dub Revolution sound</a>. As we always strive to show what's going on in our own neighbourhood we invited our Brno connection from <a href="http://www.myspace.com/pawlaczewls">Pawlač Zewls</a> and <a href="http://www.myspace.com/radiobuferacrew">Radio Bufera Crew</a>, <b>Jamal Rodriguez</b> and <b>Ramon Ramirez</b> as well as <b>Echodelic</b> from Prague.</p><br/><p><a href="http://www.myspace.com/jahreubenmystic">Jah Rueben Mystic</a> (Bryan Williams) was born in april 1971 in Kingston, Jamaica. Growing up in the centre of "roots music" during the "70s reggae boom" young Rueben got involved soon. He took over his "silky" smooth voice after his favourite reggae singer then Sanchez. After gaining experience in small local sound systems and competitions Rueben toured with Black Hero Sound system around Jamaica where his performance charmed several producers and promoters. Shortly afterwards first contacts for studio recordings and live gigs with band at major reggae open-air festivals followed. Tune „JAH JAH ONLY YOU“ is one of the best tunes from his Jamaican era.</p><br/><center><iframe width="288" height="246" src="http://www.youtube.com/embed/5dJU4fxrS5w?rel=0" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe></center><br/><p>At the dawn of 3rd millenium Rueben moved to the european reggae metropolis London where he still lives. In London, he got the attention quite quickly and became a solid part of the scene. He's especially known for his combinations with Ras Zacharri in Mannaseh's production or for tunes he did with Markie Lyrics on Universal Roots label. This is his very first visit to Czech so don't miss out and make him feel welcomed. United Forces say so!</p><br/><center><iframe width="288" height="246" src="http://www.youtube.com/embed/aCxZyrwI-cY?rel=0" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe></center><br/><p><a href="http://www.myspace.com/digitronsoundsystem">Digitron Sound System</a> is a first and for sure best-known sound system in Croatia. Although it's been established in 2008 it is nothing that new as behind it stand seasoned musicians from Zagreb. To back it up be sure that the foundation member is nobody else but Vrki a.k.a. WRX the bass player from Radikal Dub Kolektiv and Radikal Dub Sound operator and it is him who's going to represent the sound here in Prague. So expect their own heavyweight production which is being released on their own label Digitron Records as well as some exclusive dubplates and roots selection and that all with the true punk attitude.</p><br/><center><iframe width="288" height="246" src="http://www.youtube.com/embed/e6Y0wjrtXtM?rel=0" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe></center><br/><p><b>Mark Dub</b>, from Bristol's sound <a href="http://www.dubrevolution.co.uk/">Dub Revolution</a> is a surprise guest and we're very happy to have him here. Dub Revolution is a loose crew of musicians, producers and singers and is more focused on diverse live shows than studio work. One of the current memebers of the crew is Knaty P who you may remember from the memorable visit of RDK Hi-Fi sound system back in 2008.</p><br/><h2>Lineup</h2>21.00 - 22.30 ECHODELIC<br/>22.30 - 23.30 JAMAL RODRIGUEZ & RAMON RAMIREZ<br/>23.30 - 00.30 MARK DUB /DUB REVOLUTION SOUND /UK<br/>00.30 - 02.00 JAH RUEBEN MYSTIC (JAM) & UFoD<br/>02.00 - 03.30 DIGITRON SOUND SYSTEM (HR)<br/>03.30 - ???

We've been asked to setup a warm-up launch party for, ever bigger and more and more prestigious, <a href="http://www.outlookfestival.com/">Outlook festival</a> here in Prague. Outlook is becoming one of the most influential events in bass and soundsystem culture in Europe. A place where the traditional UK Roots approach from 80's meets the latest forms of experimental and dance music. We adopted the same approach for the launch party in Prague's Cross club. Besides <b>Jack Sparrow</b>, who's been to Prague already and has recently released a great album Circadian, we'll see the master of masters and long time hoped for British producer of Indian descent - <b>Kromestar</b> with the support of <b>MC Sun of Selah</b>. To all this add two stages with heavyweight soundsystems and plenty of other foreign and local artists, djs and producers. So don't forget to write down the date 11th of June to you party calendar!</p><p><a href="http://www.outlookfestival.com/">Outlook. Outlook? Outlook!</a> If you haven't heard about it yet then trust us that this is a very special event. The festival is held in an abandoned fort in Pula in the stunning region of Istria, Croatia, Outlook is at the forefront of bass driven music featuring some of the biggest names from the most vibrant and cutting edge dance scenes around. This years line up includes some of the biggest names in Soundsystem culture from the worlds of Dub, Dubstep, Dancehall, Drum & Bass, Hiphop, Grime, Garage, Electronica and Bass Music. At least bit of the festival vibe is what we aim for to show you here in Prague. Check out the full line up, if you like the bass music you won't be dissaipointed.</p><br/><br/><center><h1>11.6.

United Forces of Dub label (UFoD) was founded in 2010 as a part of Roots'n'Future Soundsystem. It's a collective of czech reggae and dub enthusiasts, which has been cooperating with many leading producers and artists, such as Mungo’s HiFi, The Disciples, Bush Chemists, Iration Steppas, Dubateers, Top Cat, Brother Culture, YT or Tenor Fly over the past 8 years. By creating this label, UFoD have taken some of their past cooperation further, releasing three 10" records so far. The first release "Dem Don't Know" features one of the most talented UK reggae artists Kenny Knots and was recorded & produced by Mustakillah Sound in Prague, where the music video - Kenny's first ever - was also shot. The flip side tune was provided by Vibronics (UK). This is how the label's "split" strategy, a nice way of introducing local czech producers side by side with already well established reggae and dub producers - has started. The second release features UK veteran dub activist Jah Free and his"Run Babylonian", and introduces Syncro, a czech producer and founder of Gunjah record label, with Juakali (USA) on the vocals on the flip side. On the latest release we can find one of the UK finest roots and dub producers Dougie Conscious (Conscious Sounds) with Sandeeno (UK) on the vocals for his "Bad Mind" and czech dub producer Petr Mikovec on the flip side. With all these three releases, United Forces of Dub have managed to achieve a great success all over the world. United Forces of Dub reflects reality, represents the roots and tradition and connects them with presence to create the future. And now we've got an amazing opportunity to introduce you these fantastic producers and artists, featuring on United Forces of Dub records, live and direct from the Czech Republic and around UK!

Hackney is, in a way, very cultural place with loads of soundsystems and community centres and it is the place where King General got introduced to reggae.</p><p>Being a white boy his beginnings as a singer were very tough as in them days it was more or less a black man thing. Later he ended up in Dougie's studio where he recorded number of singles and dubs and that led in 1996 to a first LP King General Bucks Up Pon De Bush Chemists - Money Run Tings. Family and other factors stopped him for almost 13 years but luckily enough in 2008 Chazbo met General on the corner and convinced him to come back. You can listen to the result on King General Re encounters Bush Chemists - Broke Again released in 2009. What is also interesting is that he has never performed live on stage before he came back and it's more than worth it!</p><br/> <a href="http://www.alltribeswelcome.com/?p=172"> King General Interview – Video</a><br/><br/> <p><a href="http://www.myspace.com/petrmikovec">Petr Míkovec</a> is active in the music business since 1996, to reggae fans he's known especially as member of Czech band Ilam where he has written many songs and played synths and squeeze box. His way to reggae and dub music wasn't straight forward he got to know it through hip hop and other sample based electronic music, his first encounter with electronic based reggae was through a compilation Journeys Into Outer Bass (1995). As a producer he has released a very diverse album Vogelwijk on discontinued Virtual label, which released a lot of independent Czech electronica, in 2000. In 2003, he started DJing and very quickly moved to reggae and later to roots and dub. The tune Rootstock coming out on our label is his first purely dub production released.</p><br/> <p>Proper dance coming up with proper sound system so don't forget your ear plugs.</p><br/> 2010-12-08T12:17:00+01:00 United Forces of Dub digitally http://www.unitedforces.cz/en/home.php?d=6 United Forces of Dub <p>We're living in digital times and although as UFoD we are big fans of analogue vinyl, we understand that not everybody shares our passion.

You can get hold of it on all usual places. Check the <a href="en/links.php">links</a> section for the list of distributors and shops.</p><br/><p>On the first side, you get a fresh tune from legendary Jah Free. His charismatic voice is presenting us a straight message which content is clearly suggested by the track name – &ldquo;Run Babylonian&rdquo;. Babylon is going to shake under the pressure of heavy bass so typical for Jah Free's production. Also typical is the drum programming determining swinging beat supported by distinct skank and vintage Hammond sound. Throughout the track, synthetic clavinet riff is adding it's sound to the base line and completing the distinctive groove. Dub version is darker and harder mix showing the skills of seasoned dub engineer. Lot of effects give the track new dimensions.</p><br/><p>Flip side is a meeting point of interesting vocalist Juakali, originally from Trinidad, and a veteran soldier of Czech dub scene, Syncro. We are proud to present Syncro's tune &ldquo;Long Time Badman&rdquo; as Syncro has his own, for more than 10 years established, label GunJah. It is a straight stepper with litghter groove and darker atmosphere which is accentuated by main horns theme full of delays and fine-tuned by guitar riff, phasered keyboard skanks and spaced synth pads. Dub mix is more or less an instrumental version which shows Syncro's studio skills and work with individual instruments. Whole dub is filled with Juakali's vocal bits.</p><br/><p>Check the sound clips on the <a href="en/catalog.php?d=2">catalog page</a> for the release.</p> 2010-10-02T16:03:06+02:00 Video : Kenny Knots - Dem Don't Know http://www.unitedforces.cz/en/home.php?d=4 United Forces of Dub <p>Promised music video with Kenny Knots is finally out!
