First Listen: SN Dubstation – Yesterday / Feet First
Hailing from Swindon in the UK, SN Dubstation are a lively 8 piece band comprising of Drums, Bass, Keys, Guitar and that all important Brass section.
Fusing reggae, ska and dub, their sound is a merging of genres through trippy synths, twangy guitars, melodic horns and pounding bass lines. The band have taken their inspiration from traditional reggae and ska, but added their own twist of energy to create fantastically infectious music.
The new single ‘Yesterday’ is released on April 28th and, with gigs all over the UK this young band is set to make a big impression on the festival circuit this year.

“If you cut Swindoners SN Dubstation with a rusty Stanley knife they would bleed walking basslines, upbeat tempos and horn jabs. These young lads epitomise modern Dub, Ska and Reggae – three genres increasingly melded together. Taking these historical musical foundations they blend them with modern moments like whip-smart rap deliveries and contemporary lyricism to deliver a great meeting of old and new. Very much does what it says on the tin, it really gets you up and wanting to dance like you were the King of Skank.” – The Ocelot, Feb 2015
