pass it on
come on – and pass it on now
I know that you – can make it somehow
let´s share this thing – all together
mix it in the air – and change the weather
get up and – pass it on now
push you wake up – and raise your eyebrow
o I see you`re – gone quite far with it
you look like – ah yes that one is it
and while you get back – from that dream
into another – picture we beam
but before you go – down out on the floor
I know there`s something – that you do for sure
never forget – to pass it on yo
never ever forget – to pass it on fo´
if you forget – to pass it on son
something wild – ill wake you up man
lyrics by George DIN
His mission remains the same today:
exploring electronic music with a Dub mindset
Gabriel Le Mar is a music producer releasing electronic music with a special focus on deep sounds and Dub inspired TechnoHouse. Inspired by the mix techniques of Jamaican Dub music, Gabriel combines his heavy Dub mixing with the pure physical energy of club and dancefloor sounds in his productions.
Being into Dub music for ages Gabriel Le Mar started 1995 as a member of the successful "dub-club-concept" Serious Dropout, and with a sound-system playing strictly Dub: Dub Mix Convention, became one of the driving forces of NuSchool Dub in Germany. The unique connection of Dub, Reggae, Electronic and Techno sounds featured singers from Jamaica and the UK. All tracks were mixed in Dub-style, using the mixing board and it`s effects as musical instruments, other major production tools were overdub- and cut up-techniques.
On his solo albums Gabriel produces tracks, which are tailored for the Dub inspired clubber, combining different playful approaches of Dub with the functionality and stringency of TechnoHouse music. Bridges are built by energetic and minimal grooves. The Dub-feeling is clearly the inspiration behind his sound. Gabriel Le Mar skillfully mixed his Dub universe on his albums "Dubistalles", "Benevolent Chaos", "Level" or "Dubwize" and demonstrates innovative efforts to offer interesting hybrids of techno/house music. It`s all about combining these styles. Classic Dub-effects meeting uptempo beats.
With an open mind and always in a search for fresh musical experiences Gabriel Le Mar likes to integrate himself in different artistic constellations with project pseudonyms such as Saafi Brothers and Aural Float into ambient, space and experimental soundscapes...
With Aural Float Gabriel explored the leftfield side of electronic music. The project produced three albums with an emphasis on live sound manipulations, fat basslines and deep emotional Electronica.
Saafi Brothers got deeper into Ambient-Dub and add drum thrills that kept the tunes rocking. The secret of the Saafi Brothers albums is the "danceable speed" in Ambient tracks. Mostly starting with deep intros and then merging into cubby beats for the floor, that can be especially experienced in their live performances.
Next to his music projects Gabriel also worked with "Aural Float" on audiovisual concepts: as a team they artistcally supervised SPACENIGHT, a prototype of a TV-concept, utilizing spectacular film- and documentary footage from outer space with music made on Earth. A spacy sound to accompany the viewer for hours in space. SpaceNight became a success on German television and soon reached cult status among the young night watchers until today. Deep space in the wee hours - on air since 1996. End-of-Days sound for the next generation.
In the following years Gabriel Le Mar received wide acclaim for his genre crossing Dub to leftfield productions with Saafi Brothers, Aural Float and solo.
Gabriel Le Mar keeps on making waves. With a mixture of Reggae influenced Dub, House and deep Dubtechno sounds, he creates a unique connection with his new project Dublocation. In his coop with Dr. Motte Gabriel steps on a new ground releasing electronic dance music with a special focus on the various colours of Techno. Their releases Dr. Motte meets Gabriel Le Mar bring together elements of both ends of the Techno/Electronica spectrum, lovingly creating the pure aspects of dance music.
Expect deep + soulful Live+DJ-sets... Gabriel Le Mar knows how to connect DubTechno elements with Technohouse and Techno into an energetic mix, powered by experimental overdubs, played live by Gabriel. Appearances solo and with his projects at festivals like TimeWarp, Deichbrand, Pollerwiesen, Merkwürdiges Verhalten, Roskilde, Sziget, Ozora, Tribal Gathering, Reworks, Mjaft, Hadra, m4music...
