ARTIST QUOTES

“Dub Architect is proving the dub style truth that the version is original! He changes the lens on the kaleidoscope to the soul! Musical familiarity in new light with abstract pops, colors, and shapes. Dub in its true definition.” – James Searl of Giant Panda Guerilla Dub Squad

“We wrote this song with our good friend Jacob Hemphill on SOJA’s tour bus…  It has now found another path to Dub Architect.  The up and coming brother in dub blazed it up.  Keeping true to the dub while maintaining the metal edge is not an easy task but he managed to cross both in a way that keeps true to our sound while creating a new vibe for the piece.” – Chris Regan of Fear Nuttin Band discussing Dub Architect’s remix of the band’s hit song “Rebel”

“It’s always great to see a new generation of young producers get inspired by and create dub. Dub Architect is one of those young producers who has embraced the music and it’s lineage. Staying true to the core elements that are essential but adding his own style.  On his new release Dub Volume 2 – Dub Architect displays his growth and maturity as he tastefully adds his dub sensibility to the remixes. …A prime example of the next dub producer generation coming of age.” – Jesse King a.k.a Dubmatix
