Dubokaj — Mountainwater
Dubokaj & Lee „Scratch“ Perry
Mountainwater, the debut single, begins with a L$P shoutout to the record label Dubokaj co-founded and where he released his previous albums, Mouthwatering Records misspelling it Mountainwater Records, which is great poetry to begin with! The field recordings capture the sound of the secret Swiss Mountains Laboratory door slamming. The concept of the forthcoming album is one of the disruptive attention span of the journey from the virtual realm into reality and then back again.
The synth riffs on the Mountainwater single almost act like doorways: they soundtrack the way we turn our computers and laptops on and off, but the main feeling is that we are actually commuting between nature, the Swiss mountains and an indoor space. Maybe we are in front of a screen watching something on Daydreamflix, your favourite Dubokaj & Lee $cratch Perry surrealist broadcasting channel. This could be the last episode of Black Mirror.
“The session with Lee was this intense, fiery, and surreal experience. The field recordings, on the other hand, are very meditative and personal. When I record them, I always travel alone. As a result, they’re infused with my memories and what I felt at the time.
Jamming with Lee Scratch Perry stayed with me for a very long time! I was so deeply affected by it that I started to hear and see the world differently. Mago, my bass player, who helped record the session, called me the day after and told me that spending time with Lee Scratch Perry felt like you had an extension added to your synapses; and that this extension added something beautiful and precious to your experience of life. It’s as if just by being around the man an update was installed, like a plugin which makes you feel more positive about everything. I am gutted by the loss of a very special human being! Mr Perry, rest in Dub!” – Dubokaj
