Twilight Circus

Widely recognized as one of the most exciting and original artists working in dub today, multi-instrumentalist, producer and sound engineer Ryan Moore aka Twilight Circus Dub Sound System has been involved with dub for the last 25 years. He has worked with some of the very best in reggae music: Sly Dunbar, Robbie Shakespeare, Dean Fraser, Michael Rose (Black Uhuru), Luciano, Mikey General, Big Youth, Skully, Vin Gordon (Bob Marley), Chinna Smith (Ziggy Marley), Eddie 'Tan Tan' Thornton (Aswad), Buttons (UB40), Ansel Collins, Style Scott (Dub Syndicate), Bobby Ellis (Studio One), Admiral Tibet, Jah Stitch, Sugar Minott, Queen Ifrica, Fred Locks, Max Romeo, Gregory Isaacs, Mafia&Fluxy, Cevin Key (Skinny Puppy), DJ Spooky, and Mad Professor. Moore’s take on dub is a radical application of the ideology of dub pioneers like King Tubby, Lee Perry, and Augustus Pablo. His bass lines weigh tons, his atmospheres are deep, and his arrangements are kaleidoscopic while seeming inconspicuous: he “plays” the sound studio. Based in Holland, Moore released over 35 recordings (some vinyl-only) on his own label M Records since 1995, and worked with many reggae greats, including Michael Rose, Sugar Minott, Lutan Fyah, Ranking Joe, and Gregory Isaacs, the percussive sounds of Sly Dunbar and Skully, guitar from Chinna Smith and saxophone from Dean Fraser. His show will include exclusive dub plates, glimpses of his upcoming releases, rare reggae dub classics, modern dance tracks, ambient sounds, and samples all mixed into an original, danceable sonic treat.
