church and the dub

I am a dub survivor
ready to ez on by

cos its been a long, long time
since the dance hall boy
loved your ways.

Went to Salmonella Dub on Friday. I’d forgotten I had a body that is God-made to move. I’d forgotten what it feels like to feel bass through my feet and chest. I’d forgotten the magical integration of a tight set, great lights, dub beats, and video.

Someone once described Graceway as like a Salmonella Dub set:
a mix of brass, beats, electronica, with Tiki tane conducting them like wild prophet, inviting us to join for the ride. And what a ride it is; sound, light, visual, dance, sweat dripping from every pore in my body. It finishes all too soon. But what a great gig, no great experience. I am reminded of how I enjoy our attempts at graceway to incorporate the elements of this experience into our worship; sound, light, visual, movement…connecting all the senses to God, who calls us to worship him with all our heart/soul/mind/strength. I go of to the next gig, thinking about just which salmonella dub track i will use on sunday…

  1. At the risk of revealing myself as a total weenie, I’ve never heard of Salmonella Dub. More info please?
