Dub De Luxe
Feat. Doc Reggae
With Doc Reggae's compositions, Dub De Luxe is aiming to getFrench speaking reggae glowing far beyond remote galaxies and nebulas of the universe.
To the band's musicians, « Doc Reggae is just wicked. Unlike most average reggae singers, he's not trying to ape Jamaicans, he does poetry. His lyrics are just wicked. They just can't compare with any other, a slightly literary sort of thing, but just wicked, it's cracking us up. He's adressing to French speaking people mostly. His style of songs is unique, just wicked. And on top of that he's just a wicked guitar player. »
Well known for his all-out work in the Jamaican music field, the Doc knows his stuff when it comes to reggae. So Dub De Luxe refines some sweet roots reggae over which the Doc lays down his delirium and blah blah.
Onstage one can hear their tunes heard most on the radio :
« Si je reste » (« Should I Stay or Should I Go »), « Paris c'est pas funky » and of course Bob Marley's « War » (listen urgently to the super nice « War Album » with Haile Selassie's voice and the Doc's French version).

Also after remixing so much Serge Gainsbourg - who was the first musician to lend credibility to French speaking reggae - Gainsbarre went to his head a bit. After the « Aux armes et cætera » remixes where Doc Reggae's English rendition of « Lola rastaquouère » can be heard, he is sometimes covering a couple of Gainsbourg's songs (unavoidably).
On certain special occasions if the mood is right Dub De Luxe can lose control and veer towards blues, soul and even rock and roll. To obtain an answer to any question, all it takes is contacting Dub De Luxe by clicking here !
