Since DubConscious’ inception in 2002, this dub reggae collective out of Athens, GA has created and maintained their place on the cusp of solution-based philosophy, social and environmental awareness, and intellectual evolution of music. They are dedicated to spreading the word on sustainability, positivity, and social and environmental awareness through their distinctive line of organic merchandise, their music and lyrics, and through being involved with such organizations as Hands On Atlanta, Rock the Earth, Wiser Earth, and Sustainable Waves. DubConscious often performs on solar stages and at festivals that support conscious and sustainable practices, and are committed to their own mantra of being the change they wish to see in the world. Their unique blend of dub, reggae, and afrobeat pays homage to such greats and musical pioneers as Burning Spear, Lee “Scratch” Perry, Fela Kuti, and King Tubby. DubConscious also successfully transcend their respective genres, as they often incorporate elements of r&b, hip hop, electronica, and jazz, making them a favorite amongst a diverse and dedicated fan base.
