San Francisco's legendary Dubtribe Sound System rarely performs in the US anymore. Deep Space is proud to be one of the chosen to present this legendary house music duo of Sunshine and Moonbeam Jones, back to Cielo.
Of notoriety, Dubtribe released 1993's 12" single "Mother Earth." the single was frequently quoted as being a major influence in the origins of the Chemical Brothers, DJ Icey, and many other breakbeat producers of the 1990s. Reaching the bottom of the UK Dance charts, included on hundreds of dance compilations, and remains a commonly sampled record.
After their time with BMG/Jive Records where their latin house and deep house sound was included on hundreds of dance compilations and dj remixes, they moved over to Defected. In 2001's Do it Now', intended as the final Dubtribe Sound System recording, found itself in the hands of the UK Dance Music Guru Simon Dunmore of Defected Records Ltd.. Dunmore and his staff created a worldwide phenomena from the song, and gave it a five-year life span in turntable and charts all over the world. It remains by far Dubtribe's most popular and well-known recording.
