As we approach another netBloc release, I remind you that if you did forget to download netBloc Vol. 18’s 42 page liner-note booklet, it’s ok. Really! It is. Just keep in mind when netBloc Vol. 19 is released, you need to download the PDF booklet as well… ok? Cool. Thanks yo. So here’s another excellent mini-interview that could be new to you. Dub One!
01 - Why free music? Because it’s a great way to spread your music to a greater audience while you keep the control. You get feedback very easily and you get to know a lot of different musicians all over the world with whom you can collaborate without exhaustingly long legal negotiations.
02 - Do you perform your music live? If so, where can people most-likely catch you? I used to play with several bands in the past but when it comes to my own music I’m still figuring out what line-up would be best for me and where my stage-fright derives from :)
03 - Who are some of your musical influences? Of course I’m attracted to any kind of music with offbeat skanks and that typical chill-head-nodding feeling that reggae and dub usually provides, but I also like to listen to a lot of jazz-rock and funk musicians such as Herbie Hancock, John Scofield, Miles Davis, Mike Stern and Maceo Parker.
04 - What was the last free netaudio album you downloaded and listened to? Jambassa “the roots and the flowers” Great! Get it!
05 - Dub, Version, or B-Side? Dub is… a step aside from the speedy and stressful way of life many of us are stuck in. It’s a natural tranquilizer that makes you happy instead of tired. It’s about the little things that come out big time.
