Following 2009’s “Return From Planet Dub” Dubblestandart return with their new longplayer “Marijuana Dreams”. The band’s 12th album is showing Dubblestandart’s international outraging status, including a series of exceptional forward-looking collaborations with the mighty Lee Scratch Perry on four tracks, GuGabriel aka Gudrun Liemberger on three tracks, American filmmaker and visual artist David Lynch, top Jamaican artists Anthony B and Elephant Man, and the posthumous voice and art of the American novelist, poet, essayist, painter and spoken word performer William S. Burroughs.

One of the most important production teams actively creating and mutating dub in Europe, Dubblestandart from Vienna have kept a uniquely inspiring version of the dub flame alive for the last two decades. Formed in 1988 the group was heavily inspired by the sounds from legendary dub space, the Black Ark, Adrian Sherwood’s On-U Sound label, sound system operator Jah Shaka, infusing these dub influences within their own heady blend of hardcore reggae and new wave. In demand as a live backing band (i.e. for Lee Perry, Dillinger, Top Cat, Lilian Allen, Ari Up) as well as for their studio creations, Dubblestandart has become an international dub act with performances in Europe, Canada and the USA.

“Marijuana Dreams” was recorded in Kingston, Jamaica, the Bronx, NY, and the band’s own studio in Vienna, Austria. Dubblestandart’s handling of this mission has been exemplary: the productions are pleasingly individualistic, retaining plenty of originality and professionalism without seeming stoic, dull or contrived.

A dubstep remix by New York sound system Subatomic rounds out the astonishing (over 72 minutes playtime) album perfectly. Dub versions appear on the album and make “Marijuana Dreams” the most extraordinary dub production in 2010.
