“The Weapons are sick! They seamlessly blend the organic and the digital in a way that continues to push boundaries, in the spirit of dub and electronic music.”
“Live dub influenced bass music at its best. These guys will take you on a musical journey every time. Big Vibes!”
The Weapons are a San Francisco based collective of musician-producers who came together in 2014 with a dedication to the fusion of live instruments performing electronic music. The band’s sets are musically rich, maintaining dancefloor pumping aesthetics as they explore the relationships of Reggae & Dub, House, Deep Dubstep, Drum & Bass, Afrobeat and Funk. As Beatport and Juno charting producers and owners of Dubs Alive Records, Dubsworth and Tapa (also of the Spit Brothers) formed this coalition to hone their keen dubwise productions and live instrumental chops. The groups members combine schooled musicianship with minimal electronic sensibilities in live sets made up of completely original music. The band members switch between instruments and perform on Bass guitar, Drums, Guitar, Saxophone, Melodica, Electronic Percussion and EFX all mixed with live Dub fading.
