It will be released during the Fall. I have to get it manufactured and it is taking forever as pressing plants are so loaded with orders nowadays that it takes forever to even get a quote for pressing prices.

The regular release will be a 150g single LP with 4 tracks on each side while a limited edition will be a 180g double disco 45 with two tracks on each side. Super audiophile stuff...

Then a high definition digital release will be available exclusively on https://taxitabou1.bandcamp.com/ in 24 bit wav or flac files for the same price as mp3's.

Then, it will be available everywhere in digital format.

No CD is scheduled.

this other album, "Dubmaster Voyage", is it "genuine" or a dub album connected to vocal releases?

I dont know what you mean by asking if Dubmaster Voyage is a genuine dub album.

Robbie and Sly have always given newcomers their chance since Taxi was created. We found this dude posting remixes on Youtube and one of his remixes was of a S&R production. So we contacted him and told him to stop the pirating business and offered him to try him out on a Horace Andy track which S&R had produced for the Living It Up album. The result was quite interesting and we felt that given proper guidance, this kid, named Dartanyan Winston, who lived in Sandusky Ohio and worked at a McDonald's joint, could evolve into a pretty good dubbist. So we sent him more stuff, which he worked on, submitted to Robbie for review and critique, reworked, etc... Robbie gave him a lot of valuable advice and over the last couple of years, we accumulated enough niceness to put together the album. It includes tracks recorded for Bitty McLean, Bunny Rugs, Horace Andy, Khalifa, Gregory Isaacs, Chezidek, etc...

You can listen to, and buy hi rez audio files of, Dubmaster Voyage at

http://taxitabou1.bandcamp.com/album/sl ... ter-voyage

The artwork for the album was created by street artist Seize Happywallmaker. We gave the album to SHW and he made an awesome painting 4 feet / 1.20 meter wide. I have lent the painting to several exhibits in recent months and people freaking love it.

I'd love to have a mini concert organized in the gallery that sells HWM's work, that would be cool to have Dub performed by S&R in an art gallery rather than a regular venue...

by "genuine" I meant if this tracks were recorded especially for this release or if they were dub tracks to existing vocals tracks - a question you've answered

99% of the time, dub albums are albums that collect dub versions of existing songs. It is a rare dub album that is recorded especially for a dub project. At least in Jamaica.

Maybe contemporary Euro-Dub projects are done like this, I don't know. Maybe you can shed some light?

I always thought some of the stuff S & R recorded in the 70s and 80s were dub albums with no vocal counterparts, albums like "From the 60s, 70s to the 80s", "Syncopation", "Rhythm Killers" or "Don't understimate the Force" come to my mind, and then (from the UK, though) records like "Mawamba Dub" or "Dubbing from the UK"

actually, I am pretty sure the 99% figure you quoted is tad bit too high

"From the 60s, 70s to the 80s", "Syncopation", "Rhythm Killers" or "Don't understimate the Force"

none of these albums are dub albums
60/70/80's has some vocal songs
rhythm killers is a vocal album
syncopation is a joe gibbs release with instrumental parts of songs for which they were used as musicians
dont underestimate the force also and they have nothing to do with it

I dont know the others.
