HONG KONG DUB STATION 香港空轉 - CELESTIAL 天上


Hong Kong Dub Station 香港空轉 (Released by Drum Music in 2004), the third in the series of albums from Celestial, once again invokes a pan-asian dubscape of hypnotic rhythms and deep space textures. Another tectonic phase shift from Celestial merges the sounds of 70’s Jamaican b-sides with top Asian instrumentalists and digital tech-know-how. 

 

Rhythms and sounds from dub plates, collide with melodies and textures through zen temple gates…

Trip the light dubtastic in the dancehall of the mind…

 

 

 

Musicians featured again include Hong Kong’s number one erhu player, Hsin Hsiao Hung; the musical ambassadors of Nepal, trio “Sur Sudha”; Hong Kong’s very own shakuhachi master, Sunny Yeung; Asia’s jazz guitar genius, Eugene Pao and flitting between China and France, Dave Packer on harmonica. Multi-talented vocalist Angelita Li offers vocals in English and Portuguese, though she’s just as much at home singing in Cantonese, Mandarin and Thai. and rapper/producer Eddie Chung supplies some Augustus Pablo style melodica...
