|THE LOW DOWN:
Seven Dub shows how sexy dub can be. Miles Davis, Herbie Hancock, Sly Stone, Georges Clinton and the Parliament, Norman Whitfield, Lee Scratch Perry,Sly & Robbie...this musical backround inspired P.Bylebyl & G. Metenier (aka Seven Dub) for their musical revolution that started at the end of the 90's.
Since then, the Paris based Seven Dub made great a reputation as dance act in the last 5 years. In particular their various sampling contributions have added to their cachet. Whether on Hifi Dub Sessions Vol. 1 (released on Chicago's remarkable house label Guidance), on the exquisite sampler King Size Dub (Echo Beach), or on the Midnight Snack Sampler (New York's Naked Music), Hotel Costes vol.1 (Wagram), - Seven Dub delight with a most modern mix of house, jazz, dub and an unerring feel for all that is groovy. When they signed ages ago on Paris label PRO-ZAK, Patrick Bylebyl and Guillaume Metenier already had been active for several years as musicians for Babylon Fighters and Les Satellites.
Even then they had cultivated their predilection for black music. Which is the reason why they lent a helping hand as studio musicians to Paris based Jalal Nurridin and his mates of the legendary first US rap band Last Poets, during production of the Scatterap/Home album. In the meantime they have become sought-after session musicians throughout France and earned respect all-around with memorable remixes (Femi Kuti, Manu Dibango, Silent Poets, Horace Andy, Dubblestandart vs Sly & Robbie). Their debut "Rock It Tonight" was released all over the world, including all the remixes on a bonus CD. The band themselves talk about a journey into inspiration, where pure roots rhythms meet technology - analog and digital technology join mellow, harmonious and precise arrangements.
