Yes Massive, We are continuing our Remix Artist Spotlight series here on the IMR blog, and today we had a chat with Neil Perch, man at the controls of the mighty Zion Train. Neil is another heavyweight joining the all-star remix team for the Dirty Dubsters ft. Turbulence "When The Road Calls" Remix EP.
IM: So it must be about a year since you've been to our home town...you're no stranger to Dublin, how do you find the crowd Boss?
NP: Hoping to be back in DUBlin in autum 2014...I love the Dublin crowd, musically educated, relaxed people who like to relax and have a dance....just our style..
IM: What was it that turned you on to the Turbulence track?
NP: I think Turbulence has a great voice so I was happy at the chance to work with it!
IM: Obviously you have a deep love for dub and reggae music, so who are your favourite roots-reggae artists out there at the moment?
NP: The best new JA reggae for me has to be Jah 9 although other places are producing some great acts too, the global reggae scene has never been so diverse and strong...
IM: Your live dubbing format has been an inspiration to Irish Moss flag bearers Dirty Dubsters to change their live set-up to vibe their material in a similar fashion. As an essentially "analogue" performance act, how do you sit with the digital revolution?
NP: I think analogue sounds great - but digital is a valid future...For performance you need to be DOING something analogue ;) We are all analogue people no? So to entertain people you need analogue actions and music... Most importantly the methods are much less important than the MUSIC!
