Indulge Your Senses: Ari Joshua’s ‘One Dub’ EP Delivers Musical Magic

In the heart of reggae dub’s dynamic universe, where the beat is the blood and the bassline the backbone, Ari Joshua stands as a conjurer of sound, a sorcerer summoning spirits of rhythm and melody. His “One Dub” EP is not just a release; it’s a revelation, an odyssey into the soul of dub that dares the listener to dive deep and emerge transformed.

Ari Joshua doesn’t just play music; he channels it. Guitar in hand, he’s the pied piper of a procession of prodigious talents, leading them on a quest to both honor and reinvent the reggae dub tradition. The Bunker Studio in Brooklyn becomes their chapel, Alex Conroy their sonic scribe, as together they weave a tapestry vibrant with the hues of passion and the textures of innovation.

The ensemble that Ari Joshua assembles is nothing short of regal. John Kimock, the rhythmic royal, known for his percussive prowess with luminaries and soon to share stages with the likes of Mike Gordon and Otiel Burbridge, lays down beats with a surgeon’s precision. Andy Hess, bassist of legend, infuses the tracks with a resonance that’s both anchor and compass – deep, directing, divine. And Eden Ladin, the keyboardist whose fingers flirt with the keys, crafting harmonies that dance between the earthly and the ethereal.

This quartet embarks on a reggae dub odyssey, a journey marked by purpose and ignited by passion. Each track, from the infectious title cut to Mell Dettmer’s hypnotic remixes, is a chapter in a saga of collaborative genius.

Mell Dettmer, the remix wizard, takes Joshua’s visions and spins them into new realms of auditory ecstasy. Her touch at the mixing desk is that of a sculptor, chiseling soundscapes that envelop and elevate.

Mell Dettmer’s deft remixes breathe new life into Ari Joshua’s composition, elevating them to dizzying heights of sonic ecstasy. With a keen ear for detail and an unwavering commitment to artistic vision, Dettmer proves herself to be a true maestro of the mixing desk, sculpting soundscapes that are as immersive as they are exhilarating.

But the true alchemy of “One Dub” lies in Ari Joshua’s guitar. It’s a loom on which he weaves a sonic web – silken, intricate, enveloping. The EP crystallizes a moment in time, a confluence of talent and vision, a symphony of technical mastery and artistic soul.

Jonathan Plum, the mix maestro, infuses each track with a depth that’s almost tangible, his work at London Bridge Studios a testament to his craft, enveloping the listener in a cocoon of sound. And then there’s Blase aka Reberlan Paresqui, whose artwork for “One Dub” is a visual symphony that echoes the music’s depth and complexity.

For Ari Joshua, “One Dub” is more than an EP; it’s a legacy of a life lived in the service of musical truth. Born in the cradle of Cape Town and nurtured in the melting pot of America, Joshua’s music is a journey, a quest, a crusade of rhythm and melody.

As the architect of The Music Factory, Joshua has sown seeds of musical wisdom far and wide. With “One Dub,” he beckons us to join him on a voyage through the rich tapestry of reggae dub, a realm where rhythm reigns and melody is sovereign.

So, surrender to the siren call of “One Dub.” Let its rhythms enfold you, its melodies transport you, and let the collective genius of Ari Joshua and his collaborators guide you to shores of sonic bliss. “One Dub” drops anchor in the harbor of streaming platforms worldwide on May 10th, 2024.
