Texas trio Khruangbin have announced Hasta El Cielo, which is a new dub version of the group’s 2018 album Con Todo El Mundo.
Hasta El Cielo features two bonus dubs by Jamaican producer Scientist. “For us, dub has always felt like a prayer,” the band said in a statement. “Spacious, mediative, able to transport the listener to another realm. The first dub albums we listened to were records mixed by Scientist featuring the music of the Roots Radics. Laura Lee learned to play bass by listening to Scientist Wins the World Cup. His unique mixing style, with the emphasis on space and texture, creates the feeling of frozen time; it was hugely influential to us as a band. To be able to work alongside Scientist, a legend in the history of dub, is an honor.”
