Lion Dub is at the forefront of a new breed of young experimental grime producers like Lewi_B, combining the traditional sounds of grime with heavy horns and dub-step like hooks. This young versatile producer has a strong musical background playing drums from the age of 10 and is now a professional standard drummer at the tender age of 18.
Being a former member of London's prestigious Modern orchestra, his drumming backgrounds are evident in his unique sound, the use of complex drum riffs to reinforce the traditional simple grime sound is unbelievable. His experimental nature is similar to that of a young Mikey J or DaVinChe.
His two instrumentals "You Dizzy Blud?" and "Motivation" (instrumentals), clearly shows versatility within his sound. This ability to switch styles is astonishing like Mikey J two tracks are never the same, listening to his different tracks and then realising that they are all from the same producer, is almost as shocking as Big H's forfeit in LOTM6. But this trait is one that could be used as a weapon amongst the industries producing elite.
By no means is Lion dub the finish product, Lions raw talent needs to be tamed but at eighteen he'll be putting a mark on the industry with expected collaborations and work to be released over the coming year. Currently all of his tracks are free to listen to on his SoundCloud.
And after listening to his beats, I'm sure you'll agree this is one of the future stars of the grime scene.
