#25: Dub FX

Dub FX is an Australian musician and worldwide street performer.

Born in St Kilda, Melbourne, Australia, Benjamin Stanford, better known as Dub FX, started his music career singing in a local alternative rock and rapcore band initially known as Twitch, which would later change its name to Never or Now. After they released a debut album in 2004, Benjamin moved to Italy and began a solo career.

His trademark became creating rich live music using only his own performance aided by live looping and effects pedals combined with his voice. Using this set-up, he creates hip hop, reggae, and drum and bass rhythms. Dub FX collaborates on some tracks with other musicials like saxophonist Mr. Woodnote.

Dub FX’s lyrics address both general world events and contemporary angst, while suggesting individual-based revolution through self-determination and engagement.

The latest album “Roots” is available on all the music streaming platforms. It’s one of the most original albums I’ve heard in a while, and I highly recommend you listening to it.

Dub FX currently resides in Victoria, Australia with his wife and two children.
