Do you love the trombone? How about nasty bass-lines that vibrate the ground underneath your feet, shaking your insides to a reggae rhythm? If your answer is yes, Super Hi-Fi has a major dose of what you love waiting with their debut EP Dub to the Bone, out today on Electric Cowbell Records. Super Hi-Fi is the brainchild of Ezra Gale and the inner-workings of his Afro-Dub mind. Ezra has been a friend of mine for several years now. I first saw him perform with Aphrodesia, the bay-area afrobeat ensemble that introduced me to the experience of live afrobeat, back in 2005.
Ezra moved across the country to New York around 2009 where he started to put together the lineup for Super Hi-Fi. The band has evolved into a known entity around New York where their brand of dub is in demand. Dub to the Bone is the culmination of their early efforts, 8 tracks of thick, heavy, sub-woofer empowering dub. I'll be checking them out this Friday night at Toad in Cambridge, MA. They're sharing the bill with Rubble Bucket Orchestra on December 20th for Armagedd-It-On at The Lab in Brooklyn, NY.
