The Chemical Brothers have shared a new dub mix, on which they explore their love of the music.
The hour-long mix is the first in a planned series of themed mixes by the production veterans as they launch a new station ‘Radio Chemical’ for Sonos Radio. The dub mix features music from the likes of King Tubby, Mixman, Dub Syndicate and more. You can check The Chemical Brothers’ new dub mix out here.
The Chemical Brothers said of the project: “We’re excited to bring you a selection of some of our favourite music – a deep dig into our record collections. Hopefully there will be something there for you whatever time of day you’re tuning in. Keep listening for exclusive DJ mixes that will explore some of our musical passions.”
They continued: “The ‘In The Dub Mix’ channels our love of dub music – where the foundation is drum and bass and the lead instrument is the mixing desk, where a delay feeding back on itself can be as exciting as a heartfelt lyric.
“A lot of this music pushes the boundaries of what can be done with a multi track and an application of echo, EQ and phase. It’s a constant inspiration to us of what is possible in the studio and the myriad of ways you can find to interpret a song.”
The Chemical Brothers were among a number of high-profile artists to be named hosts of their own Sonos shows in January. The likes of Björk, FKA Twigs, Brittany Howard and D’Angelo have also joined the roster.
‘Radio Chemical’ first hit Sonos Radio on March 2, bringing songs from Pharoah Sanders, Kraftwerk, Tony Allen and more.
A new hip-hop station curated by artist manager Corey Smyth, Blacksmith Radio, is also coming to the service, as is the Object Of Sound podcast from poet and writer Hanif Abdurraqib.
