  • NEWS: MARCUS VISIONARY-HUMBLE LP-LIONDUB INTERNATIONAL

    The real deal finally arrives! Marcus Visionary’s latest album, released on his own Liondub International imprint, serves as a rich tapestry weaving together the Toronto native’s musical influences, which range from jungle and drum and bass to reggae and dub. Featuring guest appearance from the likes of  the legendary Sugar Minott, Johnny Osbourne, Kandiman, Bunny General, Jahdan and Messenger Selah, there is plenty of old school, dub heavy jungle fire brought to the table here, all mixed down impeccably and presented in an original groundbreaking style.

    PURCHASE THE HUMBLE LP AND GET A FREE 28 TRACK MIX BY MARCUS VISIONARY INCLUDING EXCLUSIVES, DUBPLATES, REMIXES AND UPCOMING RELEASES FROM LIONDUB INTERNATIONAL at   HERE

    MARCUS VISIONARY’S INTERVIEW

    Born and raised in the city of Toronto, Marcus Visionary has helped shape the city’s scene and sound since the early 90s. His first love is jungle / drum & bass but he has deep roots in reggae, dub and bass music in general. With a new album out combining all his musical loves, we got in touch to find out all about it.

    Tell us about Liondub International, the NYC based ragga label, and the Humble album you’re releasing on it?

    I co-run Liondub International with Eric Wise, aka DJ Liondub, out of Brooklyn NYC. We feature all styles of bass culture music but focus mainly on jungle and dubstep. We also have Liondub 45 which is a reggae / dub label.

    I met Liondub a few years back when he came to Toronto to DJ. He told me about his links to Jamaican artists and we set a plan in order to create a label that works directly with Jamaican artists.

    Humble is the first reggae / dub / dancehall influenced jungle LP we’ll be putting out. We decided to put out two EPs spread over five or six months in order to promote the LP which will be dropping January 3rd 2011.

    The music on this album project as very dancefloor friendly and heavily influenced by Jamaican dancehall and soundsystem vibes, but how do you describe your own tracks, and what kind of “genres” would you say they belong to?

    The Humble LP is a tribute to reggae / dancehall and dub influenced jungle. When I first heard jungle in 91/92 I was drawn to the reggae and dub influences in the music.  I had always hoped to one day work with original Jamaican singers and deejays without having to sample them illegally.  This LP is the first step in that direction.

  • NEWS: NEW TRON LOOKS A LOT LIKE THE PAST

    By Seth Schiesel – NY Times

    You’ve Googled yourself, right?

    Like it or not, there’s a digital you out there. In fact almost every aspect of your life is probably reflected in some computer somewhere. You could say that information, that data, has a life of its own. If you have anything to do with modern society, you are no longer a purely biological, analog being.

    The idea that a person could be represented inside a computer both thrilled and frightened me when I first saw “Tron” in the summer of 1982, when I was 9 and just starting to get into computers. As incredible as it may seem now, my friends and I would buy magazines that published short programs in Basic code. The ones we cared about were games, and I would enter them by hand into my Commodore VIC-20. Unlike kids today, we had no ability to create films or Web sites. But we could make little games, and we did. [Read More]

  • NEWS: ROCKING A CRADLE OF A EXPERIMENTAL THEATER

    By Ben Brantley – NY Times

    It was almost exactly 16 years ago that I made my first visit to La MaMa in a professional capacity, as a new theater critic for The New York Times. I’d been there before as a civilian, usually under the influence. (I believe it was where I first saw a foghorn-throated drag queen named Harvey Fierstein.) But even then La MaMa had for me the whiff of another time, the patchouli scent of the 1960s, when downtown theater was longhaired, renegade and rude.

    I wasn’t around for that heady heyday of La MaMa, the willful, playful brainchild of Ellen Stewart, who died on Thursday. Yet what I saw in the East Village theater that January night in 1994 turned out to be not only absolutely of the moment but also of the future. It was a rough-hewn, rowdy, dirty little play called“Stitches,” put on by a brother-and-sister team that presumptuously called itself the Talent Family. Their real names? David and Amy Sedaris.
