Puppashan is a Jamaican rhythms lover and precursor in Spanish reggae music. He has worked in different projects related to this music, such as Brentford Road fanzine, Bass Culture Reggae Radio Show or the soulful reggae band Hotdrop. He has developed his career as an autodidact producer and shows his work in this new project: Bass Culture Players.
This showcase is a compilation of five singles (and its five dub mixes) recorded between 2008 and 2011. Puppashan has worked with some of the best Spanish reggae musicians, from bands like Tasty Grooves, Hotdrop, Amalgamah, Rockers roots… “Dub Box” has two special collaborations: producer Dani Ites plays melodica in “Rally Round”, and Ranking Forrest, the genuine deejay from California, works in the vocals of “Gwaan Good”.
Discoinferno is the studio where this production takes place, using analogical techniques and equipment, which have generated a whole range of sounds and shades, evocating different ages and places. The mastering has been carried out in Rollover Studios (London) by producer Oscar Pablos a.k.a. Ojah, who boosts the vintage textures that wrap up “Dub Box”.
This 10-track compilation rescues the essence of Jamaican productions, and brings it to this modern age where physical releases have lost much of its importance. “Dub Box” musical and graphic work has been developed from the respect and admiration to Jamaican music.

Bass Culture Players will be back soon with more of its personal productions, inspired in jamaican music.
