DubConscious - NonViolent -2009-
(Reggae, Dub, Afro-Beat)

From: Athens, Georgia

Since 2002, this Georgia Reggae/Dub collective has been on the leading edge of solution-based philosophy, social and environmental awareness, and the evolution of today's music. They are dedicated to spreading the word on sustainability, unity, and a greater understanding of the human experience. These values are promoted through their music, their distinctive line of organic merchandise, and their collaboration with many great organizations. Their unique musical style pays homage to world music icons Bob Marley, Burning Spear, Lee “Scratch” Perry, Fela Kuti and King Tubby, while incorporating newer influences of musical pioneers such as Thievery Corporation and Sound Tribe Sector Nine. NonViolent is the bands most exciting and accomplished work to date. Production, playing, and lyrics (“I hope the words of tomorrow do not contain the mistakes of today.”) are all top notch. Not only is DubConscious one the greenest bands around, but their tunes are GOLDEN!
