Globetrotting Texan trio Khruangbin are set to release
‘Hasta El Cielo’, the band’s glorious dub version of their
second album ‘Con Todo El Mundo’. The full album has
been processed anew along with two bonus dubs by
renowned Jamaican producer Scientist.
The band’s exotic, spacious, psychedelic funk aligns with
the dub treatment particularly well. Indeed, keen fans
won’t find this a surprising release. Dubs of tracks from
their first album ‘The Universe Smiles Upon You’ appeared
on limited vinyl releases of ‘People Everywhere’ for
Record Store Day 2016 and ‘Zionsville’ on the
BoogieFuturo remix 12”. The especially eagle-eared will
have caught a dub of ‘Two Fish And An Elephant’ playing
over the credits of the track’s celebrated video.
“For us, Dub has always felt like a prayer. Spacious,
meditative, able to transport the listener to another
realm. The first dub albums we listened to were records
mixed by Scientist featuring the music of the Roots
Radics. Laura Lee learned to play bass by listening to
Scientist Wins the World Cup. His unique mixing style,
with the emphasis on space and texture, creates the
feeling of frozen time; it was hugely influential to us as a
band. To be able to work alongside Scientist, a legend in
the history of dub, is an honor. This is our dub version of
Con Todo El Mundo.”
- Khruangbin
Formed of Laura Lee on bass, Mark Speer on guitar, and
Donald “DJ” Johnson on drums; Khruangbin’s sounds
are rooted in the deepest waters of music from around
the world, infused with classic soul, dub and psychedelia.
Their 2015 debut album ‘The Universe Smiles Upon You’
was heavily influenced by 60’s and 70’s Thai cassettes the
band listened to on their long car journeys to rehearsal
in the Texan countryside. 2018’s follow up ‘Con Todo El
Mundo’, which received hugely positive critical reactions
and radio play around the world, took inspiration not just
from South East Asia but similarly underdiscovered funk

and soul of the Mediterranean and the Middle East, par-
ticularly Iran.
