On the heels of a triumphant gig both performing and musical directing the live performances of "Atomic Bomb! The Music of William Onyeabor" in NYC, London, and LA (with guests like David Byrne, Damon Albarn, Luke from The Rapture, Dev Hynes, and Alexis from Hot Chip) we are super stoked to both announce and release the second Sinkane album on DFA. Ahmed and crew really knocked it out of the park on this one.

Four premium dub remixes of Sinkane by Peaking Lights, housed in a natural tan sleeve with red/green/yellow heady gradient center label. 

Approaching a busy festival season, including a performance at Glastonbury Festival this weekend plus Womad and Meltdown later in the summer, Sinkane has joined forces with Peaking Lights for a 12” EP release entitled Mean Dub, to be released on August 21st via DFA/City Slang.

With a magical dub overhaul unique to Peaking Lights, Aaron Coyes has given a bass rich enhancement of four original Sinkane songs from last year’s celebrated album Mean Love.
 
Including stand-out tracks and BBC 6Music favorites "Hold Tight" and "How We Be," there is also special attention given to one of the band's signature live jams "Galley Boys," a song that succinctly explores the spiritual overlap of reggae and country western music with floating pedal steel atop a heavy reggae beat.
 
Combined with Peaking Lights' dub aesthetic, there is perhaps no finer example of the stylistic multiverse for which Sinkane is known, than this version of "Yacha." It is the first taster from this 34 minute EP.
 
The two bands met whilst on tour with The Atomic Bomb Band (the William Onyeabor tribute project for which Gallab acts as music director), and quickly developed a mutual admiration for each others work.
 
Dub is the epitome of music to me”, says Sinkane’s Ahmed Gallab. “It's the concept of re-defining, re-appropriating, and re-interpreting an idea. Putting a different spin on something that already exists. It's collaboration and renovation. I've always wanted someone to make dubs of Sinkane songs and these Peaking Lights joints have come out really beautifully and have shed an amazing new light and energy on our music. We can’t thank Aaron enough for these jams and the amount of work he has put into them."
 
Aaron of Peaking Lights commented: “Sinkane are such a pleasure to tour with! When I first heard Mean Love I was blown away by it's soulful psychedelia - not just a wash of reverb and delay psychedelic, but literally a new mind expanding approach to songwriting… Then I got into the stems to do the dub, and the fire within was lit!
 
Ahmed’s voice is amazing! Jaytram’s drums and Ish’s bass are fully locked in, and Johnny is a straight up shredder on guitar. I'm really, really happy with how these turned out, I hope you dig’em too. I hope I kept enough of the original essence that was already so beautifully laid out and freaked out enough for your trip.
 
Enjoy, brothers and sisters!"
