Umphrey’s McGee Drop “Turn and Dub”-style
Normally it wouldn’t be big news to see a band put out a remix, but I was psyched to see the man behind the mix is Michael G. of Easy Star All Stars. Clearly the band has been inspired by this man’s work, as they started covering “Breathe” in the Dub Side of the Moon style a few years ago.
At 12:01 AM PT Tuesday, October 6th, we will release our first remix single, Turn & Dub, re-mixed by Michael G of Easy Star All Stars. Michael Goldwasser, as producer, musical director, arranger and guitarist, has been the man behind just about everything the Easy Star All-Stars have done in the studio and on stage including their best-selling tribute album releases, Dub Side of the Moon (2003) and Radiodread (2006), as well their newest release, Easy Star’s Lonely Hearts Dub Band. As we prepare for Caribbean Holidaze in Runaway Bay Jamaica December 10th through 13th, we are excited to share this dubbed out version of Turn & Run with you! The single will be available for download at umlive.net as well as iTunes, however, you will be able to stream the track at www.umphreys.com Monday October 5th.
Here’s the video evidence of the new-found dub styles of UM:
