Ishmael Ensemble have announced a new remix of the acclaimed EP, New Era.
Previously partnering up with Rider Shafique on the 2023 EP, producer and saxophonist Pete Cunningham said of the collaboration: “Rider is often associated as an MC with drum and bass and dubstep but his vocal ability far exceeds being pigeon holed, I think we both learnt a lot about our own potentials working on this EP as it was a step into new territory for us both.”
The collective have now collaborated with Bristol duo Dubkasm who have remixed the body of work in the classic dub-style.

Bristol’s finest DJ Stryda & Digistep, aka Dubkasm, reworked and authentically dubbed the original recordings and warped them into a sound-system ready collection of heavy hitting, deep sonic explorations.
The first single, New Era (Vocal Mix), is due to be released on October 13.
This will be followed by a special, one-off event at Strange Brew which will see members of Ishmael Ensemble perform alongside Rider Shafique and Dubkasm on October 26.
Tickets for the launch party are on sale now and can be found at https://www.headfirstbristol.co.uk/whats-on/strange-brew/thu-26-oct-dubkasm-meets-ishmael-ensemble-rider-shafique-95451#e95451
