Official site : http://www.matzig.comFresh New stuff at http://www.myspace.com/jahaciddubJah Acid Dub is Matthieu Ziegler a.k.a Matzig. Originally from Paris, Jah Acid Dub has a past rocked by the Jazz (Be Bop), Acid Jazz, Indian music (Raga) and Reggae.
To the search for new rhythms and textures, it plunges in the hypnotic galaxy of Dub becoming unconditional of Lee "Scratch" Perry (The Upsetter at the 'Black Ark Studio' period). His influences pass by giants of Roots such as Lee Perry, King Tubby, Scientist, Augustus Pablo, Glen Brown, Israel Vibration and the new ones like The Orb, Stress Assassin, Tikiman, Rhythm & Sound, Pole, Caspar Pound & Jammin’Unit, Backroom Beats (Twisted Records), Liquid Dub (Liquid Sound Design), OTT, Vibrasphere etc… The name of Jah Acid Dub comes from three concepts.
- Jah for saying that the rhythmic base of his tracks are based on Reggae.- Acid because he uses the Silverbox (the famous TB303 from Roland) and for a small wink to Acid Jazz.- Dub because he makes Dub Music! Jah Acid Dub composes and own-produce lonely all his riddims in his own home studio called "The Bad Weed Studio".
He is divided between several styles: Electro Dub, Ambient Dub, Atmospheric Dub, Psychédélique Dub, Hypnotic Dub, Dubby House and Atomic Dance Floor but the whole always on foundations very Roots.
His compositions are wrapped with deep bass, a solid controls of machine drums and much effects: Echo, Reverb, Phasing, Distortion, E.Q and Filter. Dubbin' with the old rootsy stylee foundation, Jah Acid Dub follows the tradition of the dub.
In 1996 he names his style 'Acid Dub' (because of the systematic use of the TB303). The tracks in these two albums (New Land Dub & Acid Revolution In Dub) were recorded live during some concerts between 1996 and 2002.
Jah Acid Dub was using at the time a MC303 or a MC505. For each title was programmed 2 at 4 patterns max and JAD played with the echo, reverb, distortion, and mute channels.
