Knights of the DUB Table – ‘Tronic EP’
Knights of the DUB Table hit full stride with their first physical release Tronic EP – a showcase of musical styles blended together to bring you an emotive and unique sound. Following on from their previous Sing It To Me Remix EP (digital), Tronic has captured the ultimate vision and essence of the band.

There is a sense of growth within the music as the Knights have matured through a flurry of live performances. Since their win at the 2009 York Street Studios Band Experiments, their sound has become bolder and stronger and this is echoed through the tunes laid down on Tronic. The sounds are full and rich and delve deeper into the musical creativity which will forever keep the Knights sounding fresh and ahead of the times.

The Tronic story begins with the first track ever written by the Knights, Sing It To Me. This brooding dub piece sets a compelling scene with strong vocals, catchy lyrics and resonant horn lines. Nothing short of epic, this hypnotic tune displays the potential to stir the soul of those listening via a strong emotive current.

The second track entitled Small, is an endearing roots number written from a child's perspective and boasts an infectious chorus that will have us all singing along. Living Carefree is next, driven by an upbeat ska/hip hop rhythm, catchy horn line and solid bass, then followed by rich drum n bass track Come Down in which we pay homage to the power of music. Both of these tracks have become genuine crowd pleasers for the Knights.

Finally, as if to add the icing to the cake, the Knights provide us with five amazing bonus remixes by some of New Zealand's top-notch producers. Music legend Tiki Taane, dubstep maestro Optimus Gryme, Undertow, AUM and the Knights very own Mr Samy'samson all jump on board to offer another layer to this powerful EP. Evan Short adds the cherry on top with his mastering magic, making everything crisp, phat and blissful to your ears.

Bio

Knights of the DUB Table combine elements of Reggae, Drum n Bass, Dubstep, Hip-Hop and Rock into their own fusion of Dub flavoured music with powerful high-energy performances that leave the crowds wanting more.

Since their inception during 2008, they have performed with some of New Zealand's best known Reggae/Dub acts Tiki Taane, Katchafire, dDub, Optimus Gryme, House of Shem and Cornerstone Roots as well as popular Australian Dub outfit, The Versionaries.

In 2009, the Knights of the DUB Table went from strength to strength, including winning the 2009 York Street Band Experiments and releasing their 'Sing It To Me Remix Ep' digitally.

2010 began with a bang, getting sponsorship from Converse, playing at Music Mountain Matakana's Bush Party, Waikato University O-Week 2010, The Tainui Games, Hamilton Gardens Arts Festival, Shiverdown and embarked on a tour to support their EP.

Their new 'Tronic EP' hit shops April 6th 2010 (distributed by Border Music) and contains four original Knights tracks and five bonus remixes from Tiki Taane, Optimus Gryme, AUM, Undertow and their very own Mr Samy'samson. They also released a video for their song 'Small'.

Knights just keep making headway and so far in 2011 they have performed at Wakedup Festival, Sonic Waves Festival and are working hard to complete their full length album.

“Since their inception the Knights have gone from strength to strength...2010 is shaping up to be a big year.” - New Zealand Musician Magazine 2010.

“These guys have a great style and for me to be apart of their progression is an honor.” - Tiki Taane 2009.

“...they're a treat to watch on stage...a strong element of improvisation, with lengthy, indulgent interludes that raise energy levels among the crowd before they hit the heavy bass lines. The mish-mash of dub, reggae, drum „n bass and rock is a surprising one, but it works well...after a high energy, tight two hour set, Knights of the Dub Table proved they can definitely hold their own.” - Gisborne Herald 2009.

“From the outside looking in it looks as though you guys are on the brink of something epic”. Mammoth 2009.
