Click on the link above or below to listen to the result. For the best listening experience I recommend that you listen on a real soundsystem or good headphones.
Double Bass Dub was previously released on Stingray Vision Records back in 2017, but I have spent a considerable amount of time remixing and remastering the music, and it now has a new and fresh sound.
All the sounds are created with the double bass and an electric bass for the reggae bassline. Classic Andy Benz style! I am a sucker for that old style dub sound that I grew up with. King Tubby, Lee Scratch Perry & Augustus Pablo are some of my heroes from that age.
I used my old Yamaha SLB 100 for the effects and rhythm.; my Rickenbacker for the bass line and then finally my acoustic Pöllmann Busetto for the solo. The result is a pretty conservative Andy Benz track. A sort of classic Andy Benz sound.
If you listen to Flowing in Circles. Then you will find that Double Bass Dub is very closely related to a composition from that album called MS Dub. It is sort of an updated version, but then with a different and more bluesy melodic line.
The track will be included on my upcoming 3rd album titled The Vibration. So Double Bass Dub could be called the first single if you like.
