  • GYPSY DUB SOUND SYSTEM make their debut in Melbourne after establishing themselves as the electronic gyp heads of Sydney town... Whenever & wherever Uber drops a Gypsy Balkan gig the hordes come out... combining this with the intimate atmosphere of Melbourne's top Gypsy bar, we should be in for a corker! Gypsy Dub Sound System: Merchants of the sublime Gypsy-scape... Gypsy Dub incorporate Eastern European and electronic composition, combining Bulgarian strings, traditional brass and the skankin riffs of a reggae guitarist. A favourite of the Uber Lingua summer series of 2006/07 and G&B Bashes, GDSS has grown out of a search to bring the passion, excitement, skill and juice of European music into a fat and funky club and festival context.

Roots to Futurism, East to West, Minimal to Maximal are all sonic stops on bP's translingual express. Brendan additionally works as a producer at the legendary Melbourne radio station Triple R during the day and presents the weekly 'Dialectic' radio program on the web and Tasmania's Edge Radio and nationally via the Community Radio Network satellite...
