Rockers TV: Addis Pablo x Suns of Dub “In My Father’s House” Documentary

Words by Michellee Nelson~Screen shot 2014-02-13 at 2.13.26 PM

You won’t hear fans of Addis Pablo and Suns of Dub complain about a shortage of entertaining content and music from the crew. The group, along with Jah Solid Rock, have just released a documentary to follow up their upcoming album (which you can preview here) recently released album In My Father’s House on the label. The 38-minute film is directed by Kush I, director of Jah 9′s “Steamers,” and Jesse Royal’s “Modern Day Judas” videos.

The In My Father’s House documentary features interviews with a number of different artists and musicians including legendary guitarist Earl “Chinna” Smith, who has worked closely with Suns of Dub and also played alongside Addis’ father, Augustus Pablo, at the height of his career.

AUDIO: Addis Pablo &The Suns of Dub, “Selassie Souljahz (Vocal Dub)”

Words by Jesse Serwer—

Addis Pablo Selassie Souljahz

Produced by the Bay Area’s DJ I-Vier, “Selassie Souljahz” is one of the tuffest reggae tunes to come across our desk so far this year. The conscious reggae posse cut features Chronixx, Protoje and Kabaka Pyramid longside Sizzla over a heavyweight, hip-hop influenced riddim. Melodica player and up-and-coming reggae force Addis Pablo, son of the late Augustus Pablo, and his group Suns of Dub have reworked the song five times over for an upcoming EP due out next month on I-Vier’s Royal Order label.

LargeUp TV: Snoop Lion Talks Reggae, Rastafari + Musical Youth

Snoop Lion

Like it or not, Snoop Lion’s Reincarnated is the most talked about reggae project since… yeah, even we are struggling to remember the last time a new reggae LP elicited this level of intrigue from the world at large. Other non-Jamaican acts with big names have made surprising left turns into reggae before but none has generated the interest and backlash as the former Snoop Dogg has with his new identity.
