Weirdub is a recording project by 3 established artists; Gaudi, Luca Gatti (aka Dr.Cat) and Paolo Polcari. All experienced producers in their individual fields, bought together by a mutual love of Reggae and the urge to put their collective skills into the pot and cook up something fresh.
The result of this performance/production union is the album ReCreationAl, an adventure into deep bass by three maverick bass-men; each bringing to the party similar tastes but different production skills and musical backgrounds. Paolo and Gaudi bringing an amassed wealth of Reggae and Dub history with them and Luca a more Jazz oriented lean.
Recorded at Metatron studio in 2002… It was performed live and is in every way a live album; The session was recorded, start to finish, in one go and then sculpted into its final form by the three producers afterwards.
The spontaneity with which it was created is very much evident in the final product and gives a particular energy to the album that is rarely found in albums produced the conventional way (i.e. over time, recorded in parts and pieced together later).
It has an immediacy and cohesion like that which you get when a good jam session comes together to create something memorable and special. It is a rare work and despite being recorded 8 years ago its timeless musical style and GQMs impeccable re-mastering makes it an ageless and classy work.
This album is all about man making music as opposed to computers making music; in fact the only computer used was in the final editing. It was created using vintage analogue equipment – Moog, synths and tape echoes with additional live Fender Rhodes, theremin, melodica and guitars.
