Dub Colossus No.1 in World Music Charts

colossus

B&W Music Club artists Dub Colossus are currently no.1 in the World Music Chart Europe with A Town Called Addis which was our August album.

Recorded originally in a shed in Addis Ababa and completed at Real World studios, Wiltshire, it is a unique attempt to mix traditional East African music with the most experimental reggae sounds and was one of our most popular downloads.

The album is a perfect example of an album that would never have been made if not for the B&W Music Club and one that we are particularly proud of. Many of the musicians had never left Ethiopia, let alone visited Bath and by the end of the year had played at both Glastonbury and The Barbican.

The album is available from Real World Records and the band will be organising live dates across Europe this summer.

    Hi everyone. For those of you who have been enjoying the B&W releases, I recorded the Ethiopian end of some of them, and also this one (latest review 5 stars) http://lastheplace.com/2009/08/17/invisible-system-punt-made-in-ethiopia/
    there is also a facebook group and page, myspace, and http://www.harperdiabate.com with album out on e.g. amazon.co.uk, play.com and many specialist record shops e.g. Sterns and Rough Trade etc. It is on itunes etc but I am considering offering it for download via our website at CD quality next. Big up to B&W who I remember from my Brighton days when Dickie first designed the Nautilus and Inner Field Sound System and remember listening to Massive Attack on it in his flat :) Enjoy the album – Invisible System – Punt (Made in Ethiopia) – Best Dan
