2019, to celebrate Brain Damage career 20th birthday, Martin Nathan opens his whole discography to remix. He then conducts an amazing casting, essentially consisting of iconic producers and international dub leaders (ZionTrain, Vibronics, OBF…), but also of legendary and charismatic singers (Horace Andy, Willi Williams, Harrison Stafford…). Naturally, French producers are strongly represented, all architects of that now worldwide renowned« French dub touch », such as Zenzile, Dub Invaders (High Tone), Dub Addict (Kaly Live Dub), Stand High Patrol, etc…
Though the project aims surely beyond a mere juxtaposition of prestigious names. It indeed intends to reflect 20 years of collaborations, crazy ventures and meetings, that have shaped Brain Damage career into something unique. All different artistic periods of the producer, and each of his 14 albums are represented, from the very first years until most recent works.
Combat Dub 4 is laid out as a digest of Brain Damage teeming discography, revisited by 14 producers among the most influential of their generation. 20 years of dub & experiments …
From Bogotá to New-York, from London to Guadalajara, from Kingston to St Etienne …
From 1999 to 2019…
Happy birthday … dubwise !
