|Dub Fx Thinking Clear Limited 180gram Vinyl 2LP Set
Melbourne born Dub FX lived in a van for 6 years performing on street corners worldwide to build an underground fan base that rivals some of the most successful artists today. A pioneer of live looping, Dub FX builds each track in the moment by beat boxing a heavy groove, layering soulful vocals and warm melodic bass lines. In 2009 Dub FX's social media skyrocketed when Bristol filmmaker Ben Dowden captured live street performances and uploaded them to YouTube. With over 600k Facebook fans & 100+ million YouTube views Dub FX promotes self-empowerment and inspiration to independent artists all over the world. Over the last decade Dub FX has played almost every major festival worldwide including Glastonbury, Coachella, Sziget, Boomtown, Shambala and Exit. 'Thinking Clear' is the 3rd album by this independent, forward thinking free spirit and is released through his own label Convoy Unlimited in partnership with Membran. "I'm always evolving artistically. By working with Evan Tweedie (bass) & Andy V (keyboards) I have been able to explore new territory in the songwriting process." Recorded in his own Treetop Studios just outside Melbourne, 'Thinking Clear' is a blend of urban genres sown together with soulful conscious lyrics. "The album was recorded in 4 months but I wrote a lot of the lyrics while on tour. I feel like this album captures the essence of all aspects of my journey." Dub FX has a way of exploring social, political and spiritual subjects that leave the listener positive and inspired. The blend of live instrumentation over his signature beat boxing gives an edge to his unique sound. "I wanted the album to sound live and electronic so I wrote and recorded the album with a bass player, pianist, percussionist and a 3 piece horn section." This 2xLP format of 'Thinking Clear' is pressed on 180g vinyl.
