NOiSEMAKER(Dub)- Sign of the Times
The new dub reggae single 'Sign of the Times' provides a sonic exploration of using deep bass lines, and a tasteful combination of organic and synthetic sounds. Vocals from Kava Jah an inspired artist from Clarendon Parish, Jamaica provide an authentic message, grounded in roots reggae heritage.
Nathan Shay Elias-Kocivar aka NSEK, is a multi-instrumentalist, dub enthusiast, music educator, and producer from San Diego, California. He infuses his music with respect for the tradition of Jamaican reggae-dub.
Speaking on the song, NSEK explained "My favorite part of making this track was running almost everything through my Roland Space Echo RE - 201 tape delay/spring reverb. The saturation is beautiful and the tape motor is pretty wonkey so you never know exactly how the take is going to sound. I make many different types of music but I love making dub the most as it feels that it comes from my heart. As Rocky Bailey says, "The music is in the message and the message is in the music".
