Dub Pistols v Dubmatix – Blue Monday – OUT NOW!

Every year, the third Monday of January is dubbed ‘Blue Monday’. The theory goes that this is the time of year when we’re all cold, broke and riddled with guilt that our New Year’s resolutions to get fit, drink less alcohol, and be a better human being have fallen by the wayside.

This year, to mark the infamous day (18/01/21), we’ve released ‘Blue Monday’, a cover of the New Order classic, recorded with our good friends Dubmatix, with all proceeds going to Tonic Music for Mental Health.

The single is released digitally alongside a Dub mix by Grammy nominated Reggae producer Gaudi, as well as on limited edition 7”, with the Dubmatix version on side A and a special ‘Stepper’ mix, also supplied by Gaudi, on the B-side.

Corn Exchange Mini Concerts: Dub Pistols

We are Back
SATURDAY 23 JANUARY 2021
Cambridge Corn Exchange – CB2 3QE
The Corn Exchange welcomes you back for a socially distanced “mini” concert. Grab your tickets and don’t forget your masks!
English electronic group the Dub Pistols are coming to Cambridge!

The eighth Dub Pistols album Addict — named after new track, Addicted To The Bassline, featuring Cheshire Cat — is a melting pot of dubwise sensibility, junglist riddims and feelgood party anthems. “I think it’s the best album we’ve ever done,” says Barry, although during the recording of it they tragically lost one of their members, Will xxx. “That was a real down-point, but we want to celebrate him in this album,” Barry adds.

Addict also features mic skills from 2-Tone heroine Rhoda Dakar, stalwart MC Navigator, long-term collaborator Lindy Layton, and foundation MCs the Ragga Twins, as well as permanent live vocalist of the past few years, Mr Seanie T. It’s out in the autumn on Sunday Best.

In Conversation with Barry Ashworth from Dub Pistols

Sometimes you have to go through the mill to realise why you were put on this Earth. So it is with the Dub Pistols, the reggae-breaks-jungle mashup, the gangster-swaggering festival stalwarts whose rollercoaster story reads like a rock’n’roll cautionary tale on a grand scale. When big beat ruled the clubs the Pistols were snapped up for $1.5m by legendary Interscope magnate Jimmy Iovine and anointed Geffen Records’ priority act for America. But Geffen put their album out the week that 9/11 happened, so the Dub Pistols ended up broke and label-less instead of US superstars. This is how it happens. They get knocked down — but they get back up.

Over an 18-year career, the Dub Pistols have worked with heroes like The Specials, Busta Rhymes, Horace Andy, Madness and Gregory Isaacs. They’ve burned through different members and hundreds of thousands of pounds on assorted capers and hedonism, and done — in the words of dapper frontman and prime mover Barry Ashworth, a ducking, diving South London graduate of the Summer of Love generation who started a band because he loved Happy Mondays and never looked back — “more fucking drugs than we knew what to do with.”

Dub Pistols ‘​Addict​’ is the eighth studio album from the highly respected group. The record promises a melting pot of dubwise sensibility, junglist riddims and feel good party anthems. It is already shaping up to be one of this year’s essential releases. Dub Pistols are an English electronic music group founded by Barry Ashworth.

This week on the podcast, I chat to Barry about their new album, touring, lockdown, live streaming and general rock n roll of being in an electronic music band. Barry also gives me his 5 things producers need to know. You can listen below or on Apple Podcasts, Spotify, Google Podcast and more via Anchor.
