Growing up in the ‘burbs of Philly, e-dubble got his musical education at the knee of his Daddy, a singer and songwriter who wielded a mean guitar.
Throughout his family household there was music: Pop’s Paul Simon records singing about Graceland while sis was digging Snoop Dogg. His first mix tapes — on a Fisher-Price recorder — covered everything from the Boss to Nirvana to Dre.
Blending all this together, with some influence from Biggie and Wu-Tang in the mix, Dub turns out songs that hit you in the gut like a sucker punch then make you want to get up and dance like it’s a Friday night disco.
“Animal” is from a disc he dropped called Freestyle Friday, where he recorded a new song every Friday night for a full year. Near as we can calculate, this one happened sometime in September. His latest disc, released in 2099, is called Hip Hop Is Good.
