Deep Space returns to earth to launch their residency in the Public Records Sound Room. The lauded, multi-award winning party which was at home at Cielo and Output (RIP) for 15 years, brought trippy vibes and dub-drenched mixes to open-minded dance floor fanatics. Known for its creatively inspired and open-minded inclusion of all music forms that were distantly or directly inspired by dub, the party saw a veritable who’s who’s in guests ranging from disco icons, bass music founders, dub developers and post-modern instigators. Techno, house and Afrobeat had as much of a place on the dancefloor as jazz, Brazilian and the words of great poets. The guests of the party often opted to perform crate-digging, signature “Deep Space” sets that often allowed artists to explore a side of their artistry they typically didn’t get to share.
“I am so excited to share the news that we've decided to start a new Deep Space monthly residency at Public Records in Brooklyn. Ever since Deep Space started in 2003, the party has always felt like the most natural vehicle for me to be able to express my deep love of the dub aesthetic in music, new and old, no matter what form it took. This can only be accomplished in a proper setting, with the right sound system and requires a comfortable and immersive atmosphere which allows our guests to fully become one with the music. We believe that Public Records will be the perfect new home for the continuation of our exploration of the ever-expanding musical cosmos as Deep Space takes place in their Sound Room on Sunday evenings. Hope you can join us!” - DJ François K.
Subatomic Sound System (performance & release party)
- Screechy Dan
Subatomic Sound System & Screechy Dan "Champion Sound" single out 2/21/2020 -- Musical victory booming out of the speaker: A love letter to the competitive art of sound clash, a master class on live dub, and a thrilling 3 minute history of Jamaican reggae riddims, dancehall, and sound system culture brought to you by the same Subatomic Sound System lineup as on Lee “Scratch” Perry’s acclaimed “Super Ape Returns To Conquer” album. A hit live for many years on Subatomic tours, every selector needs a tune like this in their record box to let the competition know they are the boss! Recorded in New York City at Subatomic Sound and in Brooklyn at The Bridge Studio with Emch creating the past meets future dub riddim linking reggae and electronic music, Jamaica's conga legend Larry McDonald on the rootical percussion, Troy Simms & Omar Little juxtaposing classic Jamaican horns lines against Ethiopian jazz solos, and Brooklyn via Kingston Jamaica singjay master Screechy Dan on the mic with his first rate chatting and vocal melodies. Produced, mixed, & mastered by Emch at Subatomic Sound in NYC & LA.
Spearheaded by producer, DJ, and multi-instrumentalist Emch, NYC’s Subatomic Sound System is leading a mission to re-establish the bass heavy, spacious soundscapes, and live improvisational remixing of classic Jamaican dub reggae music at the forefront of today’s producer-fueled, beat and bass driven music scene. Subatomic Sound System has pioneered a one-of-a-kind performance style that combines live musicians and electronics. Subatomic's innovative approach caught the ear of Bob Marley's producer and mentor, the legendary Lee “Scratch” Perry, who after hearing some of Emch's dubstep remixes of his tunes from 2007, enlisted Subatomic in 2011 as his go to band for creating his famous Black Ark studio sound live the past 8 years. The core Subatomic Sound System live band also includes Jamaican conga legend Larry McDonald who has been playing since the inception of reggae with everyone from The Skatalites to Bob Marley & Peter Tosh to Gil Scot Heron as well as Troy Shaka Simms, sax player of Brooklyn Gypsies. Most recently Subatomic & Scratch released a new single "Dub Organizer" and completed a US tour celebrating the 45th anniversary of the word's first dub reggae album 'Blackboard Jungle Dub' produced by Scratch in 1973, which featured the original recordings of several Marley songs like "Kaya" and "Keep on Moving". Also in 2019 Subatomic was invited to open for Julian Marley on tour and to remix the lead single "Morning is Coming" for Sting & Shaggy's recent Grammy nominated album.
After numerous remixes and singles over the past decade, Scratch & Subatomic topped both reggae and electronic charts with their “Super Ape Returns To Conquer” album, a 21st century re-imagining of Perry’s visionary 1976 album ( http://bit.ly/SS033s ). The new album breaks ground of its own as Subatomic's use of technology creates an unprecedented level of dynamic improvisation across frequencies, between live performers, computers, and studio manipulation, exploding traditional concepts of what is a live performance versus a studio recording. Other releases with dancehall artists like Anthony B, Elephant Man, and Jahdan Blakkamoore have further defined the reach of the Subatomic Sound dub style as well as unlikely collaborations and remixes pairing a global network of underground electronic bass music producers with the likes of filmmaker David Lynch, Ari Up of The Slits, a collective of Colombian cumbia producers, and more. Emch worked as a radio host on Radio NY FM for 3 years and continues to host a show on BrooklynRadio.com. Emch also worked for many years teaching at Dubspot and is the founder of Dub Champions Festival in the USA and Europe which organizes both performances and educational workshops on dub music. The Subatomic live show has toured the world in various configurations as an innovative combination of electronics and live instruments which recently inspired a viral documentary by Great Big Story.
