dubLoner "Chairr Nawena" (ft. Isaac Haile Selassie)
Published Apr 16, 2015Kenneth James Gibson has been actively putting out music in the Los Angeles electronic music scene since 1994, releasing his latest offering as dubLoner just this week — and Exclaim! has got the premiere of the brand new single "Chairr Nawena."
Coming from an EP of the same name, the track is a joint effort between Gibson and his longtime collaborator, Ethiopian MC Isaac Haile Selassie. Chairr Nawena also features remixes from Boston techno-dub musician GYS, as well as Kush Arora.
Described as "an homage to reggae," the new single is definitely a work spawned from Gibson's electronic roots, but the slow-paced beats, exotic instrumentation and Selassie's vocals bring together the worlds of techno, dub and reggae into one cohesive piece of music.
Chairr Nawena is out now via Adjunct, and you can listen to the title track in the player below.
