Dub & Culture

Proprio come una vecchia trasmissione radio: due piatti, un mixer e un microfono, album e singoli in vinile, il Dub e la sua storia… Ecco cosa vi aspetta nel programma del veterano del dub italiano Rankin Alpha, che ci racconterà aneddoti e storie più o meno (o per niente) conosciute del dub e della sua favolosa storia.

Just like an old radio transmission: two turntables, a mixer and a microphone, vinyl albums and singles, the Dub and its history … Here’s what awaits you in the program of the Italian dub veteran, who will tell us anecdotes and stories more or less (or not at all) known about the dub and its fabulous history.

Rankin Alpha: polistrumentista, produttore, cantante, co fondatore di Dubital e Jam Ra Records, che dal 1995 annovera collaborazioni e coproduzioni dub internazionali e non (Lee Scratch Perry, Mad Professor, Zion Train, Dennis Bovell, Africa Unite, Tre Allegri Ragazzi Morti, Paolo Baldini…)

Rankin Alpha: poly-instrumentalist, producer, singer, co-founder of Dubital and Jam Ra Records, which since 1995 has included collaborations and international dub productions (Lee Scratch Perry, Mad Professor, Zion Train, Dennis Bovell, Africa Unite, Tre Allegri Ragazzi Morti, Paolo Baldini …)
