Grace Jones is giving away a teaser from her dub oriented remix album ‘Hurricane Dub’. Follow the link below for a free download.
Born in Jamaica, Grace Jones has never shied away from her West Indian roots. Incorporating Caribbean styles, her seminal early 80s albums made frequent use of the legendary studio at Compass Point.
Returning with her new album ‘Hurricane’ in 2008, Grace Jones took the echoes of dub to an intense standard. Inspiring some under-the-counter remixes, Digital Mystikz supplied a stunning re-working of ‘Love You To Life’.
Seemingly taking this on board, Grace Jones confirmed plans for a dub remix album earlier this year. Ivor Guest stood at the controls, with the singer’s material given a complete re-working by the producer.
As ever, image is paramount to Grace Jones. The cover for ‘Hurricane Dub’ features an image from one time creative partner Jean-Paul Goude of the singer wearing a trademark Philip Treacy hat.
Set to drop on September 5th, ‘Hurricane Dub’ could well turn out to be a fascinating about-turn from Grace Jones. Giving fans a taste of what to expect, the singer has released new cut ‘Well Well Well Dub’ as a free download.
