Dub Life: A Continuous Mix by DJ Shawn Francis

Instinct Records


The first Ibiza/Chillout experience…on the dub tip!


It’s a bit of a rare quality nowadays but DUB LIFE pulls it off in very cool fashion! Inspired by the coastal lounge scenes of Ibiza or San Tropez, Shadow creates with DUB LIFE a lush atmosphere by using some of the latest grooves., DUB LIFE features Hybrid Device, Saru and Merkin Dream who first appeared on SHADOW: HED SESSIONS.

After the nightlife, there is DUBLIFE. It’s not as frenetic, but just as funky. It’s where the bass is a bit deeper & slower, and the beats caress you more than come after you; music for downtime, not peak time. DUBLIFE is a soundtrack for lingering sunsets, & all of those late nights that turn into velvet mornings.

But this is much more than just another random chill-out compilation. It’s like an intercontinental soundclash between Ibiza, and Jamaica; the result is a hybrid Caribbean-Mediterranean sound that is both soothing, and rhythmic. Your selector for this excursion into the version, Shawn Francis, gives you 70 minutes of sun-kissed sounds, including several exclusive plates from the Shadow Sound System, produced especially for this mix!

DUBLIFE features new remixes & productions by Shadow favorites like Saru (“Something Stronger” & “Bamboo Shadow”), and Hybrid Device (“Rhesus” & “Substation”), as well as material from Blend, who will drop his stellar debut album on Shadow later in 2002. Also included for your listening pleasure is the Baby Mammoth remix of Greg Long’s “Nostalgic Lament”, cut specifically for this release!

It’s a globe-spanning mix, from Saru’s LA underground to the languid Mediterranean bliss of Greece’s Digital Alkemist & on through to the loping funk of “Pass the Mess” by London’s Deja-Move. The journey comes to its’ climactic end in Texas, where the 8-piece live dub majesty that is Sub Oslo deliver the spine-tingling 10 minute-plus “Celestial Dub”. It’s a soothing end to a long journey.

Go on, live the DUBLIFE. It’s like a non-stop trip around the world without the jet lag.
