Forming in Moss Side, Manchester, from members of Black Star Dub Collective and Manchester’s dub organisers Dub Reaktion, Conscious Youth started with the primary intention of being a studio project producing political digital dubs. Feeling inspired by sound system culture and the need to express there discontent with the social situation across the world Conscious Youth began work in the studio.
With songs such as ‘Onwards and Upwards’ (a positive plea for a brighter future), ‘Education’ (fighting words against the indoctrination of the education system) and the Eastern inspired steppers of ‘Knowledge Through Nature’ and ‘Struggling Dub’ getting plays world wide Conscious Youth decided it was time to take their message to the dance. Under the guidance of local legends Nucleus Roots, Conscious Youth are putting their experience as live musicians to good use and preparing a live set featuring live mixing, MC’s and musicians from their home turf and farther afield for 2015.
Conscious Youth are coming to a dance near you with heavy dubs, social lyrics and positive vibrations…It’s time to move things forward.
