Grimy Styles

Taking their cues from dub pioneers like King Tubby and Lee "Scratch" Perry, Austin-based quartet Grimy Styles is ushering in a new wave of exploratory dub. The group's latest album, Rewind, boasts tweaked-out klezmer, gypsy dub, and other global grooves that are creatively rehashed. Their heavy, syncopated beats beneath a surging rhythm section have helped give them a solid reputation outside Texas, where they began as a trio in 2001. They've already gigged with heavyweights like the Skatalites and have crafted riddims for reggae artists such as Capleton, Luciano, and I-Wayne. They're in South Florida playing a handful of shows; why not welcome spring with a couple of dubbed-out concerts?
