DUB // STEPPAS // ROOTS // REGGAE
– Lion’s Den invites… Dub Engine & Digitron for a night of PSYCHO STEPPAS –
!! powered by Lion’s Den Sound System !!
a year has passed since our last joint tour, and some months since our last release together, so we thought it’s about time to bring back our good friends Digitron from Zagreb, Croatia, for a musical meeting of a unique kind, only this time on our sound system and not alone… we rather take the full madness…
we proudly also welcome the great dub duo Dub Engine from Bologna, Italy – highly in demand in the modern dub scene, and with a special place in the hearts of most Berliners after a memorable Fusion gig in 2014…
as they are good friends and dub-hooligans of the same kind they have spent many raving sessions and studio hours together throughout the last year, so be ready for some ‘engintrone’ vibes… pure dub craziness, psycho steppas…

/// ABOUT ///
Digitron Sound [Zagreb / HR]
Digitron Sound System, pioneer dub sound outta Croatia, balkan dub defenders! Since 2007 based on members of 2 live dub bands (Radikal Dub Kolektiv and Bamwise), piled up and led with the intention of making the first Croatian sound system, in a country where there was no culture of its kind. Musicwise closest to UK sound of digital dub with influences of different musical directions, from electronic music, to more organic. Usual suspects in Croatian and European underground scene: festivals, clubs, autonomous zones etc…
Digitron runs many nights in the biggest Croatian and only alternative cultural centre, former squat called Medika. A monthly program is paired with organizing and running many dub stages on different festivals (Modem, Lost Theory, Seasplash etc…). Apart from being active as an act that has been performing all across Europe on some of the leading festivals and club nights (Fusion, Reggaebus, Hadra, Lusine etc…), Digitron also has a label called Digitron Records and is an active production force – always ruff and tuff.
Dub Engine [Bologna / IT]
Live and studio project started in 2009 by musicians Tux (dubmaster, fx) and Sabry (vocals, synth) from Bologna (Italy).
Ruff bass, acid upbeat synths, infinite delays and tons of wobbles are the trademark of Engine’s sound, surely part of that new generation of dub coloured by various music genres: from roots-reggae to its electronic descendants like stepper, jungle and dubstep.
Deeply influenced by UK & French new millenium dub era, they started to evolve their live style towards a new “psycho-steppa” way, merging the hypnotic energy of psychedelic vocals with militant-warrior style typical of stepper music.
They’ve shared the stage with international dub artists like Zion Train, Alpha & Omega, Mad Professor, OBF, Alpha Steppa, Jahtari, Mayd Hubb spreading their vibes in most of the festivals/clubs in Italy and Europe.
Revealed in 2010 with a 8-track release under free Creative Commons licence on “Irie On Air” net-label , they appeared on several european compilations before signing “Rude Boy” in 2011 on Dubatriation Records, their first 7″ vinyl release, killer Shaka dub tune.
