“Heavyweight Dub Champion restores all hope.” – KRS-ONE
Sonic Shamanistic Alchemy - Founded in a log cabin at 9,000 feet in the mountains of Colorado, and now based in San Francisco, California, Heavyweight Dub Champion is a movement of interdimensional warriors representing the Army of the Last Champion. Firmly rooted in hip hop, dancehall, dub and electronic music, and performed on more than 50 channels of vintage analog and digital gear, the band has gained much notoriety and a growing following from its high-intensity and visually captivating live performances. Founder and Last Champion Manifesto author Resurrector transcends space and time wielding an arsenal of deep revolutionary audio with support from a revolving crew of co-conspirators that include Totter Todd, Dr. Israel, A.P.O.S.T.L.E, Jillian Ann, MC Azeem and Stero-Lion. At the collective’s core is the universal intention of inspiration, mind expansion and transformation through creative expression - all of which manifests in their collective artistic performance known as The Liberation Process.
Rise of the Champion Nation is the highly anticipated, genre-bending new album from Heavyweight Dub Champion. Produced by Resurrector and Patch and recorded over the span of five years on multiple continents, Rise features collaborations with some of contemporary music's most revolutionary-minded vocalists, including the legendary KRS ONE and Killah Priest. Rise will be available everywhere May 5th 2009!
