Biography

Lead by Brooklyn's own Dr. Israel, this new incarnation of the Dub sound is like nothing else you've heard. "Patterns of War," the new album by Doc and the young Brooklyn collective Dreadtone International, is a new-school-meets-old-school marriage of roots, dub, trip-hop, rock, and R&B. Teaming up with vocalists Lady K and Chemda, along with an assortment of Brooklyn’s finest dub players, the good Dr. has created possibly his most accessible effort to date—an entirely new dub sound. Think Massive Attack vs. Fugees. Heavy heavy bass lines, thundering beats, beautiful melodies, pristinely produced vocals, and conscious lyrics paint an over-all soundscape which is as powerful as it is unique.
