Loopmasters proudly present Dub Pistols Smoking Dubs 2 - a legendary collection of Sub-Busting Bass, heavily-skankin’ Beats and authentic, dubwise Instruments from the industry’s finest purveyors of Dub! The Pistols return to bring you another package of authentic Bass-heavy magic - ideal for injecting vibes into your productions, and 100% Royalty Free.
An expansive 18-year career has seen the Dub Pistols working with The Specials, Busta Rhymes, Horace Andy, Madness and Gregory Isaacs. Their genre-smashing abilities have led to remix work for the likes of Moby, Crystal Method, Limp Bizkit, Bono, Korn & Ian Brown, Busta Rhymes, and soundtrack credits on Blade 2 & Y Tu Mama Tambien.
Since their sixth album, ‘Return Of The Pistoleros’, (released on Rob Da Banks’s Sunday Best imprint) they’ve worked with the artist Gavin Turk and created music for a Banksy documentary. The rising star of British street art, Ben Allen, created his whole collection while listening to the Dub Pistols. Nothing is beyond the Dub Pistols – with Bono and The Edge at their electric live shows and Howard Marks doing their sleeve notes. The epic journey continues with Smoking Dubs 2!
