Recently released via the independent outfit Major Label is the first five track EP by Dubvasion, a side offshoot of the well-known progressive instrumental band Guts Pie Earshot that fused with the Breakcore-artist L.N/A under the name of Subvasion for the release of their "Lost At Funfair" album and renamed after a split to Dubvasion now, taking on with their journey into electronic playgrounds yet undefined. Their new EP "From Afar" amalgamates influences from classic DubHouse and contemporary Dubstep, keeps an eye on solemn cellos and distorted guitars that also play a key role in their main band project, takes beats and pieces from genres like EBM, Tribal and Psychedelic or Ritual Trance and form something unique, a new musical shape to function live and on the dancefloor due to its massive gravitational pull and heartfelt seductive approach. Dubvasion are serving music for the emotionally deep without being cliche, exploring unknown terrain that still has to be named yet. What about Vampire Bass or Dub Nocturne?
