Dub Trio have teamed up with Benji Webbe (Skindred) for a cover of Ini Kamoze‘s “Them Thing Deh.” The track, which has been retitled “Them Thing Deh Dub,“ can be streamed below:
Dub Trio‘s Stu Brooks commented:
“We’re putting this song out for the love of it. We knew we wanted to do a track that paid homage to our forefathers of reggae and dub, rhythm section greatness, Sly and Robbie. They have been an endless source of inspiration to us as a band from the beginning. So, as helicopters swarmed over Hollywood during BLM protests, my wife and I felt compelled to finally break quarantine.
As we approached Hollywood and Vine to join in solidarity with the protesters, ‘Them Thing Deh’ happened to be the soundtrack in my headphones. The lyric “got to keep your cool’ really spoke to me as I could feel the tension in the air.
That week, we quickly put the rhythm tracks together, recording from three different states, with the help of Roger Rivas on organ and keys and hit up our old friend, legend Benji Webbe. Benji is the ultimate genre-masher, soulfully clashing metal, reggae, punk, dub, dancehall… all the shit we love!”
