Producer, DJ and multi-instrumentalist, Dub Gabriel has been pushing the boundaries of rock, dub, world and electronic music for over a decade. His musical explorations in Brooklyn in the mid 90’s drew him to the outer limits of the New York scene where he got his start as a DJ at the legendary Limelight. His genre-bending style and hard-hitting sets launched him as a trailblazing figure in the New York underground club scene and gained him the attention of leading publications including Andy Warhol’s Interview Magazine who hailed Dub Gabriel as “one to watch” in New York City.

Fast-forward to today and Dub Gabriel continues to build on this legacy in everything he does - whether it’s creating genre defying original music, remixing projects or throwing down slamming DJ sets. Most recently he has collaborated with Michael Stipe on a track for the album Ciao My Shining Star: The Songs of Mark Mulcahy, which also features tracks from Thom Yorke, The National, Mercury Rev and Frank Black. This is his second collaboration with Stipe - the first one being for Dub Gabriel’s 2008 album, Anarchy & Alchemy. The album has garnered critical acclaim from leading publications Pitch Fork, New York Magazine, The Wire and CMJ, with Exclaim Magazine naming it the “Best Dance Album of the Year”.

In between working on his upcoming fourth studio album; which features collaborations with a diverse crew of legendary artists that include U Roy, David J (Bauhaus/Love & Rockets), members of Gogol Bordello and many others; 2009 has seen Dub Gabriel dropping remixes for Balkan Beat Box (J Dub), Raiz (Universal) and a soon-to-be-released remix for the uncompromising No-Wave pioneers, Suicide. Staying true to his multi-cultural roots, he is also working on a side project with Bachir Attar & The Master Musicians of Jajouka, which will culminate in both a studio release and a live touring project. If all of that isn’t enough, he continues to stay busy composing for TV & film and has written music for MTV, VH-1 and Nickelodeon, as well as scoring an upcoming feature film staring Bradley Cooper.

As a DJ, Dub Gabriel is much in demand on the international club circuit dropping sets alongside other genre defying DJ’s and artists that include, Kode 9, DJ Craze, Banga, Bomb Squad, Jazzanova, Scientist and Meat Beat Manifesto. He is a regular guest at Francois K’s legendary Deep Space night at Cielo and has even held down sets at Givenchy’s runway show during China Fashion Week in Beijing, Puma’s World Cup party in Berlin and the 50th Anniversary of the Peace Bell Ceremony at the United Nations!

“Gabriel proves as adept at the genre-smashing game as anyone around”
- Time Out New York.

“Dub Gabriel's most realized and best so far”
- The Wire.

“The cross-cultural fusion is a philosophical masterpiece”
- XLR8R.

“A top producer in the electronica scene"
- All Music Guide.

“His tracks variously bring to mind moments of Thievery Corporation, Bill Laswell and Brian Eno, but overlays these influences with Gabriel’s distinctive flair. *CRITICS PICK!”
- Billboard.

“Gabriel firmly embraces an identity formed by a punk rock youth a progressive spiritual consciousness and equal adoration for dub, electronic and world music traditions”
- Resonance.

“Plays like a Kubrickian soundtrack for future societies where all the worlds instruments are thrown into one circle and the orgy is conducted by none other than archangel Gabriel himself”
- Paste.

“New York-based producer-artist Dub Gabriel, a frequent flier in international dance scenes, supplies the bigness and relentlessness you need for a modern dub fix”
- LA Weekly.

“Because everybody and their mom can essentially be a DJ and/or producer these days, it’s hard to discern what's worth paying attention to in the electronica world. That said, Brooklyn-ite Dub Gabriel is well worth your time - much like Thievery Corporation, he uses a lot of "world" influence, but comes off more dark and disturbed”
- Village Voice.
