written and produced by gabriel le mar
gabriel le mar is a veteran in electronic music with over 25 album productions on his belt. synonymously his name stands for a decade of deep dub techno and consequently pushing tracks for intense nights on the floor. in this process the productive artist likes to integrate himself in different artistic constellations with project pseudonyms such as subsonic park, aural float or justin sequence. next to his many music projects gabriel also works with aural float (alex azary, pascal f.e.o.s. and gabriel le mar) on audiovisual concepts: as a team they did the artistic supervision of spacenight, a prototype of an integral tv-concept, utilizing spectacular pictures and visionary soundscapes which became a landmark success on german television and was highly acclaimed on an international level and remains a synonyme for chillout until today.
on his brandnew album "dubwize" le mar offers 8 new tracks which are tailored for the dub inspired clubber, combining different playful approaches of dubwith the functionality and stringency of techhouse music, without sounding like another basic channel epigone, but rather to focus on an own approach with different methods and results. precisely this means that the length of an album context is used to tell a story: agile tracks like the opening "dubster" mixes and the more minimal pounding "love dub" alternate with spheric minimal groovers like "seasonal dub" and "time for everything". bridges are built by more minimal functional grooves like "minitex" or "nova bluez" which give an opportunity to exhale. a perfect on-the-point production, "dubwize" sounds refreshingly variable and discrete, caused by an uncoerced approach in the studio and conveyed by the input received by the creative exchange processes with his project partners and last but not least, the musical socialization which encompasses rich influences from king tubby to andy stott is definitely a factor which helps gabriel to stay refreshingly flexible.
