…SOUL MAGNIFIQUE Presents…
(( DUBTRIBE SOUND SYSTEM ))

DESCRIPTION:
Dubtribe Sound System is a San Francisco based electronic musical group who produced and performed live world wide between 1991 and 2005. Dubtribe consisted of singers Sunshine Jones and Moonbeam Jones, but also included many sit in and “on tour” musicians over the years. Originally born in a rent party, Dubtribe Sound System distinguished themselves as performers by performing live for many hours, rather than replaying their recordings from dat tapes or portable computers, and touring without stopping, often bringing their own sound, lights, and traveling family with them. But unlike their few counterparts in North America, Dubtribe would depart from the warehouse movement and establish themselves in the mid-1990s as a grass roots tour de force, refusing help, press, or money from any outside interests.

ORIGINS:
Sunshine Jones, an ex-punk rocker and Bay Area native, taking in the still-emerging sounds of hip-hop. At club Townsend, DJ Doc Martin broke out some house music. “One night he just started playing Marshall Jefferson and Ten City, and it was a real shock,” Sunshine says. “I left angry with Martin because he sold out on hip-hop.”

After Sunshine spent a summer on the Spanish party isle of Ibiza in 1989, it started to make sense. All shapes and sizes getting together to dance, he says. I wanted to share that. It changed me forever.

Back in San Francisco, Sunshine had been leading an acid-jazz band. When it needed a vocalist, he took on Moonbeam in 1990. (“I didn’t want to meet anybody named Moonbeam,” Sunshine says. “I had the shit beat out of me for my name.”) Inspired by Ibiza, he tried to transform his group into a live house-music act. Many of the band members bailed, leaving just Sunshine and Moonbeam to go it alone as Dubtribe. At first, it was a grind trying to get booked in a DJ-centric world, but the duo’s DIY ‘Come Unity’ events at the Bryant Street pad (the first event was a rent party) were a hit, and soon Dubtribe was making records.
