Started by House aficionado Claudio Coccoluto, The Dub has remained a staple of Italian dance music sporting an indubitably consistent catalogue that reaches right back to 1997.
Now - in the follow up to a slew of 12"s from the owner himself - The Dub present their 37th record, the first addition from Claudio's son and current label manager Gianmaria Coccoluto working alongside fellow Italian Luca Vera.
At just 22 years old, Gianmaria Coccoluto is an auspicious talent already with records on Wound Music and his own label TÊTE under his belt.
When paired up with veteran producer and DJ Luca Vera, we see an enlivening musical meld resulting in 3 lively cuts primed for brimful dancefloors.
'Gjørme' kicks things off with a sharp kick and tumbling bongos that gather momentum towards abrupt shifts in intensity that are certain to send the floor into rapture.
'Jorden' then drives a full-bodied kick drum through more busy bongos and a persistent, circling bass pattern that keeps tension bubbling throughout.
'Sand' then finishes up with frazzled feedback signals and a loose-limbed groove. Off-kilter organ stabs and rich atmospherics generate a brooding mood that caps off another fine addition to a label with 20 years experience in the game.
