Rootfire Premier – Dubbest: round table discussion + new live album

If you haven’t had a chance to check out Dubbest, now is the time to rectify that. The five-piece balances classic analog tone with a distinctly 21st century edge to create their brand of melody-driven roots music. Last year marked the release of Light Flashes, their second collaboration with engineer, producer, and all around reggae guru Craig “Dubfader” Welsch, who’s album credits include modern reggae classics like 10ft. Ganja Plant’s Hillside Airstrip and John Brown’s Body’s All Time. Dubbest recently relocated from Boston to American reggae hotspot San Diego, where the crew is preparing the release of their first live album, Live at the Belly Up. I caught up with the boys last month to chat about working with your heroes, the album making process, and what’s next for the new comers to the SoCal scene.
