The 11 tracks of the LP stand
true to SKG's Dub Allaince's motto of "delivering Bass Culture" to
every corner of the planet. Once the elephant, the true king of the
jungle, sets himself loose, then there is no stopping. Every one of his
steps is like an earthquake, shaking the ground with deep vibrations,
while his cry cuts through the silence like the revolutionary cry of a
warrior. When the elephant marches towards you, take cover .....
especially if you are a Babylonian!

SKG'S DUB ALLIANCE is a project formed by three friends: Big Shine
(voc), Digital Monk and Lorrd. Coming from different musical projects
(Rodes United - Moriginal Beats- Kako Synapantima) but with their love
for Bass culture as a common denominator, they composed a dynamic trio
with a high-energetic stage presence. They have released their work on
various labels (Breathe Records (GR), Reggaewise (GR), Gradient Audio
(USA) Dubtribu Records (UK), Iron Shirt Records, Dubophonic (CY) etc.)
and their first EP "The Alliance" has received very positive reviews in
the local press.
Performing in Greece and sharing the stage
with great names of the local scene and from abroad (Dub Pistols, High
Tone, Mad Proffessor, Dub Fx, Radikal Guru, Amit, Zion Train, Grounding,
Alborosie, Dub Inc , Asian Dub Foundation, etc.), they set up a unique
show during their live sessions, with a lot of bass, scratching and
vocals/toasting, grabbing the public's attention.
Bass" is their debut album and it is released on the greek label
"Reggaewise", almost one and a half year after "The Alliance" EP. The LP
was born out of the need of the crew for a more complete work, defining
the way they perceive dub and stepper music. The album stands out from
any previous releases, incorporating live drums combined with
turntablism, percussion,live dub mix and with Big Shine delivering some
powerful lyrical flow on the mic.
