It is with great joy that Dubophonic hosts in this release two of the most prolific artists and acknowledged melodica players of Europe. Representing Cyprus, long time friend and resident Dubophonic artist Med Dred takes over the right channel of the recording, showcasing his original Mediterranean-style play on the alto melodica, while on the left channel the worldwide acknowledged French artist Shaky Norman shines through his performance on the soprano melodica, polished by his 25-year experience in music. They are accompanied by Dub Caravan on the electric guitar and the bass, a fine addition indeed!

"King Solomon's Dub" is based on an original one-drop roots reggae riddim, composed, arranged, mixed and mastered by Med Dred, and co-produced by Med Dred and Dub Caravan. The riddim is presented in three different versions and is available from all major online stores and also on cd in limited quantities.

"King Solomon's Melodica Duet" is what it says: a playful musical reasoning in a strictly meditation style, with the two melodica players engaging in a "question and answer" game, improvising on the chords and completing each other, while Dub Caravan sets the pace through his basslines.

As if the first cut wasn’t meditative enough, the next two versions lead into deeper meditation, taking the vibes into new levels. Med Dred’s “hybrid dubwize” accomplishes this through digital and analogue techniques, while Dub Caravan serves a strictly analogue version, using deep echoes and reverb ina a meditation-upliftment style, dubbing it live.
