Dub Gabriel~Restless Youth EP

Check out friend of the proGram Dub Gabriel’s newest eFFort…..

Dub Gabriel continues to push the musical envelope with his Restless Youth EP, delivering a deep and heavy dancehall-meets-dubstep scorcher. For the lead track, ‘No Lies’, Dub Gabriel has paired up with none other than MC Zulu (Poirier/Soulico), one of the most sought-after ragga vocalists in electronic music today – his newest track with Dub Gabriel is set to be one of this year’s hottest dance floor bangers! Engineered by Mark Pistel (Meat Beat Manifesto/Hercules and The Love Affair), Restless Youth features 4 tracks, including the incendiary “No Lies”, the post-apocalyptic ‘Babylon Shall Fall’, the riddim treatment of ‘Set the Lazers to Destroy the Sun’ and, the dance floor crushing ‘Tactile Evasion’ – a remix of ‘No Lies’ from one of our favorite producers, Liquid Stranger. Once again mastered by Taylor Dupree of 12k, Restless Youth is definitely not for the faint of heart!
