    Dana Bernard is a twenty-seven year old singer / singjay, song writer, recording and performing artist. She was born to teenage parents in the harsh inner cities of Kingston, Jamaica in late 1980s and grew up with her extended family where her grandmother was the head of the household.

     

     

    "My father was the first who introduced me to reggae music, as he would always listen to Irie FM radio".

    Growing up, young Aza soon realized she could sing and would often do so for friends, schoolmates and family members. At the age of sixteen she did her first recording which was a dub plate for a New York based sound system and little did she know it had gotten quite a response. On leaving high school she went to work in the hotel industry as an Entertainment Coordinator. Several years later she gave birth to a divine baby girl and at that moment, her life changed as her consciousness opened to a new higher level. She found Rastafari way of life and always thanks "Rasta" energy for changing her thinking. She brought African Spirituality to her awareness and that connected her to her roots.
    On this journey she was relinked with the Lineage Family members (as they all grew up in the same community), to become the first active female of the Lineage movement. At this point music began playing a very important role in her life and she started writing seriously. Those who know Aza and are around her often say she is a "a vessel of messages".

     

     

    The Lineage Family started attending a weekly cultural open mic dub events called Dub School, held on the grounds of the Jah Ova Evil Studio where they met the members of the Jah Ova Evil movement. Aza Lineage was encouraged to sing and that she did. Her singing and messages were received well so they continued attending on a weekly basis. We could say without a doubt that Jah Ova Evil Studio became her training grounds. Along with the Lineage Family she started to attend other weekly cultural dub events named Kingston Dub Club, Inner City Dub, Sankofa Sessions, and Vinyl Thursdays, where she was able to sing and produce several features that have gain good responses.

     

     

    Under the musical guidance of Kevin Lineage Morrison (Lineage founder) and Jahnoi "Selah" Nunes (Jah Ova Evil Engineer) she is working
    continuously on developing her skills and talent as a well rounded hard core reggae artist. She believes that will be an advance to the nation, especially the youths, staying true to "Word Sound Power" mentality and lyrics to spark your mind. Aza Lineage is currently working with local based producers as well as producers overseas on singles to be released in 2017. "Love Alone", "Plant Up The Herbs" and "Smoke Weed Today" are just a few of them and they should be released soon. Each song is a product of working and collaborating with different producers.

    Aza Lineage is young, talented and hardworking artist. If you didn't hear about her already we are certain you soon will... One way or the other!

    The other day I picked up the new WUDUB!? BABYLON-EP, his third so farand while I was checking

    it out I couldn' t help but to write down these few lines, since compelling images started to flash

    through my head at full speed.

     

     

    A-side immediately hits it off, by a combination of minimal yet effective  

    kicks & snares, that carry a deliciously slow and sensual as ever LISA BENNETT,

    supported by convincing sounding Jamaican vocalist INFINITE,

    and listening to the guy no doubt in my mind that his voice BE heard.

    Hoarsely sung 'Call On Me' has a pleasant festival-feel, topics the concept and

    meaning of friendship in a style only to be described as reggae wudubby dub,

    and seems a pretty decent way to commence both this LP,

    as well as summer that is upon us.

    Second on A, titled 'Collie', introduces an uplifting playful melodica tune to pave the way and

    make susceptible for the (among connaisseurs I hear) specific charisma-driven

    vocal chords of RAS TINNY.

    I instantly make a mental picture of an Irish Friendly Hermit Giant coming to town,

    bringing a strong spiritual message in harsh times,

    armed to the teeth with integrity, and soul.

    Hammering away pounding bass lines, swinging 4-to-the floor-kicks into the arena.

    Like a devoted zen master who needs to hit you, in order for you to learn,

    bathing in lucid dreamy states, finishing with grandeur, spectacle and showmanship.

     

    Only moments into side B I'm taken by surprise, when I notice there are 2 completely

    distinct styles on this record. While side A feels quite roots,

    side B may very well offer a glimpse of evolution and future within this genre.

     

    First track 'Maintain', a true ballad that hacks away musically with mesmerizing intensity and  hypnotizing atmosphere, proves to be most impressive in its subtlety.

    A real stuck-in-your-head kinda track, I discover during the rest of the day, an anachronistic classic in a world that has yet to come.

    Its sweeping violin resembles a raizorsharp blade cutting through the existential void

    that surrounds us, societal emptiness that both binds and unites, as well as separates & divides us.  With a passion-fuelled preaching SAIMN-I, who spreads hope despite struggle, raises consciousness, comforts.

    A beautiful and clever fusion of dub, reggae, hiphop and deep dubstep, and a worthy acquisition for my collection.

     

    Last song 'Rastaman Style' is the audacious, bulky newborn offspring & diabolical result

    of the initial unlikely collaboration between 2 unusual characters.

    One being CENTROID, a chiptune artist who obviously saw a few more dimensions

    than the rest of us on the gameboyscreen, where from he funneled his melancholic melody

    and skank to lure us down into deep dark dungeons, enter his private -hunt or be hunted- gamemania-mension and far beyond that, into the gamemania-verse he dwells in.

     

    Having joined forces with our own trusty BABYLONBUSTER, sounding here like an angry prophet

    (who doesn't let his mood be spoilt & still manages to have fun in the process),

    semi-automatically machinegunning strong lyrics that floath and roar

    through the plastic universe on a -lowest key on the keyboard- steady heavy base

    that resonates hard in the bones.

    This is a -crazy-enough-it-might-just-work combo, that sure delivers,

    in nothing short of heart and spirit, spiked with humour, theatricals,

    and totally in the zone.

     

    A tale of Protest & Uprise, revolting with attitude, mobilizing to keep your chin up and hope alive in Babylon.

     

     

    I have a confession to make!

    I'm not an expert regarding these types of music, but I admit I am pleased by this LP.

    WUDUB!? keeps steppin' up further, succeeds to find ways to polish up his (though a previous already fairly clean) sound even more and consistently shows increase in quality, both esthetically and content wise.

     

    Contrast between side A and B is unmistakeable,

    but complementary, sequence of tracks well thought through,

    intended to make this vinyl kosmologically & alchemically complete,

    day/night, sun/moon, and an elegant harmony and balance is thus become.

     

    Side A feels rather warm, organic, has a reassuring relaxing vibe to bring you in the mood, but meanwhile steampreps to experience the funky android dark matter style that soon will hit you, and the synthetic nine-headed whip slashing electronics WUDUB!? is about to viciously

    bombard you with...

     

    Meanwhile I'm KEEPin' IT DUB!
