BarabaDub Sound System is another imaginary project of a few music lovers, and a longtime friend of Seasplash and these are its most prominent spokesmen this year! The warm atmosphere and the excellent music are guaranteed because they are taking you on a whole night voyage by Haris Pilton, Prancing D, Chakka, Lewangz and Foreigners everywhere.
Haris Pilton aka Prince Har in May this year has released his roots reggae album “Dedication” last year, which is entirely made in old school reggae style. His style can be described as a unique fusion of gypsy music mixed with urban beats, spiced with a big influence of reggae tradition. This mixture gives us a result that his music sounds like funny, futuristic, Rasta, Balkan, Tarantinos Pulp Fiction movie. Humour in his music is mostly influenced by comic book Alan Ford. In the past years, he did around 50 remixes of gypsy, traditional music and in the last period, he is working on his own material. Haris Pilton gypsy, reggae, dub music is a question, not an answer!
A DJ, mediocre sound engineer and part of Medika’s household, Dino M. aka Prancing D comes from Zagreb, Croatia. When he is not playing music, he is probably somewhere around dragging music equipment boxes. His musical selection is not “dub schlagers”, but just some unknown roots dub riddims that you have not heard yet, and they are the sweetest reason for coming to a dance! And if you did hear them already, you might recall them again and rediscover the Jamaican culture and music that Prancing D celebrates!
