Following their Dub Sound System tour in 2016, High Tone is back to China in tour in full instrumental set this may, meanwhile starting another important music exploration through collaboration – Featuring More brilliant Chinese artists, High Tone will start a 1 week long residency project in the Morning House, Chengdu, China for their next album. We can expect their Nova Dub classics throughout 20 years of existence, the off beats dancefloor from their Soundsystem set Dub Invaders, and some fresh and hot new creations from this collaboration !
High Tone is back in China for the 4th time and DB Bros records had the occasion to give them a small interview :
1 – DB Bros : Since, it’s not your first time here, what do you think about the chinese underground scene ?
1 – High Tone : Hi in fact this is the 4th time in china because we came in november 2016 with Dub invaders our other project
We don’t really know the chinese underground scene, we discovered CHACHA in november and really like it;
now we just met Stolen an amazing post electro punk rock band in chengdu and Jahwazoo reggae ska style. they are really good band tight and serious musicians.
2 – DB Bros : Would you be interested in producing an album in China ?
2 – High Tone : We are here to play and recording traditional chinese musician, and this morning we just recorded a Flute player “Zhang Xiaobing” a friend of the owner of the Morning House in Chengdu. Tomorrow we will have a Pipa & Erhu players
We want including this in our futur album cause we always love China traditional music
Also we will record the singer Chacha
3 – DB Bros : What is it that you love the most when you are creating a song ?
3 – High Tone :Meeting new musician is a good part of the creation, they bring you new things
Sometime when you create you can do some mistake, and this mistake can create new things
That’s the way Dub music was created when the sound engineer open a track by error with a big reverb or delay on it!
4 – DB Bros : What about when you are on stage ?
4 – High Tone :On stage you play for the people and try bring them good vibration, we love make them dancing
feeling happy or sharing other feeling like sadness plenitude deep things thru the music.
Generally we love to be on tour, it’s a special moment ; People come after a hard week of job, ease off the pressure,they are in “open mind way”, sometimes it’s the beginning of friendly story or a love story ! lol !
5 – DB Bros :Do you love the food here?
5 – High Tone :Yes a lot, there is so different things; we eat everything in China. So different between the town and district !
