Music In Belgium Review: Indubious “From Zero” (translated)

18 Oct

“The story of the Indubious group is not made for sensitive souls. Like a phoenix rising from his ashes, Indubious was forged in pain. Evton and Skip, brothers in life and partners on the stage, born with cystic fibrosis and condemned by doctors to an imminent death from an early age, emerged as a powerful force for change and the future of music consciousness. Their new album “From Zero” features legendary guests: dancehall icon SizzlaVaughn Benjamin (formerly Midnite and Akae Beka ) and singer Reggae / R & B Zahira Soul. From Zero is a mix of conscious dancehall, reggae roots with a high level production. All songs were written, produced and designed by Indubious and published on their own label Righteous Sound Productions.

Based in Southern Oregon, Indubious has released three albums in recent years, including “Wake The Lion” , produced by pioneer EDM / Dub / Reggae Gaudi. From Zero was produced and recorded entirely by Evton and Skip, and it shows an astonishing rise in sound and production, while maintaining an emphasis on their reggae roots. The new album covers many genres, including dancehall, reggae roots, electronica, and even alt-pop, while highlighting the positive messages that have made the band known.”

The Rocker UK Review: Indubious “From Zero”

16 Oct

51eqyymhphl

“A Portland, Oregon based band led by brothers Evan ‘Evton B’ and Spencer ‘Skipwicked’ Burton, this is the third album from the band, which mixes up reggae, dancehall, r’n’b, dubstep and all sorts of things that the kiddies will know about.

Turns out that both brothers were born with the genetic disorder cystic fibrosis and a lot of the material is rooted in the difficulties they face in life. They’re helped along their musical way by a variety of singers including Zahira, Vaughn Benjamin and Sizzla (‘Golden Ones’) but the noise they make is all their own, sharpened by a touring schedule that has seen them play with some of the leading lights of the reggae world including Black Uhuru, Stephen Marley and Michael Franti.

They’ve produced the album themselves and have come up with a fresh and vital release. I’m not going to pretend this is a world I live in but for anyone who does, songs like ‘We Got Vibes’, ‘Golden Ones’ and ‘Sky High’ will provide a lot of pleasure.”

CD HotList Review: Indubious “From Zero”

5 Oct

From Zero Cover_Low Rez

“Their fourth album is a triumph of powerful, heavyweight grooves, conscious lyrics, and catchy melodies”

“You might not have heard of Indubious. They’re a reggae band based in Southern Oregon, headed by two brothers who were born with cystic fibrosis and were basically told from their early childhood that they were about to die. Now in their 20s, they have instead become a major force in the West Coast reggae scene, and their fourth album is a triumph of powerful, heavyweight grooves, conscious lyrics, and catchy melodies. Guests include Sizzla Kalonji, Vaughn Benjamin, and Zahira, but the album works because of Spencer Burton’s bass and Evan Burton’s sweet singing–not to mention the rich production, all of which was done by the two brothers. This is an astoundingly fine album.”

28 Sep

Indubious

Indubious will be touring California/West Coast this November with a few dates still open for booking. Fast Lane International is proud to announce the addition  of Indubious to their roster. For booking inquiries please email. The story of Indubious is not for the faint of heart. Like a phoenix rising from the ashes, Indubious was forged in the fires of pain and destruction, only to emerge powerfully with a message of transformation. Evton and Skip, brothers and bandmates born with Cystic Fibrosis and convinced by doctors of their impending death from an early age, have emerged as a powerful force for change and the future of conscious music. Their only choice has always been mind over matter, and time has proven that their unbending visionary outlook, combined with an inspiring message of love and hope, has not only helped them overcome personal hardship, but catapulted their music onto the world stage with an unstoppable momentum.

Based out of Oregon, Indubious has released three albums over the past few years, including Wake The Lion which was produced by EDM/Dub/ Reggae pioneer Gaudi. Their new album From Zero, released on July 1st, 2017, debuted at #6 on the Billboard Reggae Chart, on the iTunes Reggae Chart, and features legendary guest artists including Dancehall icon Sizzla, Vaughn Benjamin (of Midnite and Akae Beka), and songstress Zahira.

From Zero is a mix of conscious Dancehall and Roots Reggae with top level production. All songs were written, produced, and engineered by Indubious, and released on their own label Righteous Sound Productions.

“Simply put, Indubious is my favorite band of 2017, and From Zero is my favorite album of 2017 – and it truly deserves to be yours too.” -Review by Russell A. Trunk at annecarlini.com

“For me that’s one of the most original refreshing pieces of reggae music I’ve heard in a long time. I think it’s really special.” – David Rodigan, BBC

IDC is so honored to work with international reggae artist I-Octane!

22 Aug

ioctane

Jamaica, U.S.A (MPR Consulting) – International recording artist I-Octane has announced his recent signing with Miami based management company, Beautiful People MGT, and a deal with San Francisco based Independent Distribution Collective (IDC). The latter set in preparation for his highly anticipated 2018 album.

Fans of I-Octane have been clamoring for a full length anthology since his 2014 hit filled “My Journey” which topped #4 on the Billboard Reggae Chart. Since then, the reggae star has delivered numerous worldwide top charting singles, while continuing extensive touring from his hit filled repertoire.

“After being in music professionally for over 12 years now, I have grown and I have learned a lot along the way. I did 2 albums and they were both very similar. It was social commentary, more one drop oriented. This album has a lot of different things on it, it is a more versatile I-Octane. It’s more grown. I expect a lot of mileage from this album. I’m going to go to places where I’ve never been before through this album. Different sides of Octane, different vocal range, different sound, this is a totally different I-Octane, but the essence is me.. a grown me..” – I-Octane

Fresh from inking with his new management, the first order of the day for BPM was securing distribution with a reputable company, who would dedicate themselves to the project at hand. “As a fan of reggae music, I-Octane has steadily remained on my playlist, so joining his close-knit team was a honor. Our vision is similar, and our aim the same, so to find a company who would match our goal became a priority. To take the brand that is I-Octane to the four corners of the world”  – W.Morgan, CEO/Founder, Beautiful People MGT.

Speaking on joining the IDC family, I-Octane expressed “IDC is a great accomplishment. Big up my management team. This is big for me as an independent artist. To know that we have IDC on this project, not only for the global distribution but supporting us in all the marketing, promoting and also pushing us. They see the same for I-Octane as I do. They understand the concept, the sound, the growth. It all makes sense since this album is universal, everyone will relate to one song or another. I give thanks to IDC , my team and the power of the almighty“.

Steffen Franz, President/Founder of Independent Distribution Collective echoed a similar sentiment by stating, “IDC is honored to be working with I-Octane, an internationally successful Jamaican artist who has worked for his whole career, to forward the positive and conscious messages that are so important in music in this time. This new project will be wide reaching and it will be embraced by fans and audiences worldwide, and we are excited to be on board for the distribution of this brand-new album.

In business for over 12 years, Independent Distribution Collective (IDC) is a music marketing and distribution company based in San Francisco, California that offers physical and digital distribution, marketing and promotion, artist development services, and music licensing.

An unmatched combination of innate talent, lyrical prowess and versatility, I-Octane resonates with conscious lyrics, sentiments of universal faith, romance, social justice and compassion. The smooth Rastafarian singer who has amassed an impressive slew of hits songs in a few short years, has skillfully positioned himself as an ambassador of reggae music, while maintaining a strong appeal in the streets, where many of his songs have become anthems.

Even with his incredible success to date, I-Octane has just scratched the surface of all he is meant to achieve, however his name is securely cemented a musical legacy comparable to many icons.

Keys and Chords Review: Indubious “From Zero” (translated)

17 Aug
From Zero Cover_Low Rez
“Indubious is already on their fourth album. The brothers, ‘Skipwicked’ Spencer and ‘Evton B’ Evan Burton have furthered their musical composition skills and solidified their own reggae path. One might ask, how can two brothers with cystic fibrosis still deliver such high-quality sound? But, Indubious proves that one can also accomplish beautiful things regardless of a difficult background.
If you listen to ‘See Sharp,’ you will only hear the pure sounds. You will not hear irritated lungs, on the contrary,  you will hear pure music and vocals. Yes, this album can be labeled as reggae, but it’s more than just a Jamaican rhythm. It is beautiful in how it applies several modern layers to a classic reggae rhythm.
Indubious gets help from singers Sizzla Kalonji on ‘Golden Ones’ and Vaughn Benjamin in an immersive ‘Do not Lose Sleep’. Or Zahira’s contribution to the ingenious ‘Root Down’. These American gentlemen have played West Coast Reggae and various other festivals. With some good listening you will be able to immerse yourself in the music psychedelically and spiritually. With Indubious’ reggae-layers, one can see ‘From Zero’ as a starting point in a renewed genre.”
