Stylistically, Improvisators Dub is an unapologetic throwback to the Kingston and Montego Bay of the ’70s — they recall a time when dubwise artists traveled all over Jamaica and carried their impressive sound systems with them. And for that matter, the French group also recalls a time when dubwise became popular in the U.K. and artists like Aba Shanti I and the London-based Mad Professor (just to give a two examples) ruled the pre-dancehall era of British toasting.
Improvisators Dub was formed in Bordeaux in 1997; that year, they ventured to London and recorded their debut EP with Jamaican singer/producer Junior Delgado. The group’s first full-length album, Hybrid, was followed by Dub & Mixture, which found them joining forces with the Disciples (a well-known dub group from England) and was released in France in 2000 on the Reverb label. Improvisators Dub’s subsequent albums on Reverb have included Live Act Outernational (their first live album) in 2001 and Super Vocal & Dub Session in 2002. In 2004, Super Vocal & Dub Session was released in the United States on the Vicious Circle label.
