Dubblestandart, in nearly 30 years of running their operations, worked with many of their idols: Sly & Robbie, Dillinger, Ken Boothe, Mikey Dread, Marcia Griffiths, Lee Perry, William S. Burroughs, Mad Professor, Adrian Sherwood to drop some names. U might have heard of their legendary Return From Planet Dub album, that linked them to film director David Lynch, Lee Perry and Ari Up from the Slits.
Or u might have seen one of their rare live appearances, backing up Martha Griffiths in Sweden, Lee Perry in Central Park NYC ( & Moscow, Russia!), Ari Up on 2 Canadian tours or jamming with India’s top ranking singers MC Dehli Sultanate & Begum X in Goa, India.
However, we believe u had an exceptional experience seeing a quite unusual band in challenging times. To resist the downward spiral of political developments as well as being resilient to a more and more tricky digital music market, have been their core assets ever since. Representing a generation X band of the early 90s , Dubblestandart’s name itself, seems like a symbolic metaphor for the end of the analog days and the dawn of the digital age.
