East London based Dubateers has and continues to produce some of the heaviest UK dub and reggae music to have ever hit the streets. Dubateers firmly holding to their foundations as an underground sound outfit, based on original rastafarian values. Dub fans since 1993 they launched in 2004 their releases which have become huge anthems for many of the UK’s greatest sound systems, both release music and dubplate, often unadvertised or without name or reference in sessions.

Although now solely run as a completely independent outfit by original founder Nick Dubateers, Dubateers have been very busy for the last 2 years (2012-2014) rebuilding a new studio to further many new production techniques for a planned prolific release period in the near future…
