Hailing from the Black Forest in southern Germany, mR.kRaBbZ has a strong DIY background in speaker building and sound systems and draws from an eclectic mix of influences. Originally starting with heavy metal and grunge, he became enticed by jungle/drum’n’bass. The ragga chanting and reggae samples, and the discovery of original jamaican DUB music (King Tubby etc) shifted his interest strongly towards all forms of jamaican music, past and present. He has been involved from the early 2000’s with what is nowadays ”Dogtown HiFi” soundsystem, operating out of Rottweil, Germany.
His strong focus is nowadays mostly on the iconic 70’s era of roots reggae and associated dub. But at the same time mR.kRaBbZ can also draw from the extensive dubplate box of his native Dogtown HiFi brothers, which has been built up for 15 years with hard work, playing dances, underground parties and festivals.
