about

Uus Energia was formed in year 2009 when a small group of friends started fooling around with one drop rhythm and skank. Born essentially out of a punk rock soul the band’s first dub experiments maintained a healthy tone of roughness that eventually has transformed into more conventional form of reggae-dub.

In 2012 Uus Energia released their debut album „Studio Live Dub“, since then the Tallinn-based group has steadily sprouted their roots in collective dub-consciousness. This record is a first of a series to reflect on a contemporary dub music – scattered between the influences of electronic bass culture and traditional live instruments, it is here for the benefit of dub itself.

Over the years Uus Energia has educated a lot of promising musicians to understand the arts of dub music. Although seen many different line-ups, the heart and brains behind the band has remained, watching over the growing culture of reggae-dub enthusiasts in Estonia.
