Blackjob - Trashdub



Original Cultures

Released: 23rd July 2012 | 6 track dub ep

Blackjob is the latest project from famed Italian bassist Mannaman, a musician who over the last 20 years has worked with renowned Italian artists and collectives such as the Isola Posse All Stars and Casino Royale with whom he has recorded numerous albums, releasing on major labels and collaborating with the likes of Howie B and Tim Holmes from Death In Vegas.

Having kept his feet firmly in the underground throughout his career, Mannaman returns there with Blackjob - a dub project alongside singer Suz and vocalist Soul Boy, Tayone and keyboard player Tony Toilet.

Trash Dub is a five track EP of modern day dub, with inspiration from the music's Jamaican roots and its modern day offshoots and mutations. The music on Trash Dub combines electronic and organic elements into a meditative whole, with Suz and Soul Boy's vocals bringing a human element that echoes Bristol's Massive Attack among others.

The EP will come in three parts: an original EP, a remix EP featuring Baobinga, Monolithium, Danny Scrilla, T-Woc and Moresounds - both on digital - and a 12 version with a selection of both originals and remixes.

"Some great sounds. Old school Massive Attack vibes with sounds that remind me of Nick Cave (in a good way) for some reason!"
A Taut Line, Diskotopia
"Dream-like and roots heavy, definitely one for the soul"
Om Unit, Cosmic Bridge / Civil Mus

Opti, Airflex Labs
"Loving the Blackjob EP, sounds like the best of old fashioned Bristol bass channelled through current tech trickery."
Wrongtom, Ninja Tune / Tru Thoughts
