Dubmarine, Beach Hotel, tonight

Take cover! High-energy, bass-heavy electro dub vessel Dubmarine are taking the wraps off their brand-new single Unconditional, which is out 11 Nov through Sugarrush Records.

Live, Dubmarine are nothing short of a phenomenon. Over the last couple of years, the band has done it the old-fashioned way, earning themselves a must-see reputation through a relentless touring and festival schedule.

Led by the vocal gymnastics of Indigenous superstar and Gangulu man D-Kazman, the nine-piece create deep dancehall, reggae, dub, and drum-and-bass rhythm pandemonium on stage, fusing elements of music from all around the world.

Friday, free at the Beach Hotel from 9pm.
