The story begins in 2000 in Britany (France). Two guys decide to create a sound system with the aim of sharing their common passion for roots reggae and early digital. Rootystep (selecta) and MacGyver (operator) begin to collect records and purchase music equipment. They are quickly joined by Pupajim who becomes the MC, the singer and the dub builder. The Stand High Patrol first toured the land of Brittany, gradually moving towards stepper dub production emanating from the English stage. Fifteen years later, the sound is more present than ever. Stand High has created a true identity and has established itself as one of the essential sound systems of the French dub scene.

The identity of Stand High comes from the unique voice of its singer and also from the singular style of his dub. Over the years the sound has developed a particular style integrating a set of personal and eclectic influences to his dub. This style, named “dubadub”, is defined as a subtle blend of dub, dubstep, and digital reggae. Built like the Hip Hop instrumentals are, the Dubadub is an hybrid and dynamic style that find its followers among fans of dub, hip hop and electronic music.

When STAND HIGH PATROL runs a session, it’s always rough and dynamic! Pupajim sings and animates while his dubs are reinterpreted by MacGyver and Rootystep. Rootystep runs the selection and also acts on frequencies with a preamp. At the same time, Mc Gyver dubs the whole thing with his effects (echo, delay, reverb…). The dubs made by Pupajim are never played two times the same way and the “three dubadub muskateers” never offer the same show.

In 2009, STAND HIGH PATROL creates his own label “STAND HIGH RECORDS”. In 2012, following the release of several Eps and singles, the three Dubadub Musketeerz presents their first album “Midnight Walkers”, 13 exclusives & wicked tracks inna pure Dubadub Style. Since this time the story continue with new releases on STAND HIGH RECORDS. Pupajim, Rootystep and MacGyver return in 2015 with their second self-produced album : “A Matter of Scale”

Maffi Promotions a.k.a. Maffi Boys come straight outta 1773 Kbh V, Copenhagen, Denmark. Originally founded in 1990 by the two homeboys, lazy body Moog and Junior the Rat, Maffi Promotions have been a steady producer of simple digital riddims for years. Hanging out in the streets of Hummel City Junior & Moog used to entertain their friends with the primitve riddims of the Maffi sound. Not knowing that they would do the exact same thing fifteen years later, they continued to believe that one day they would move up the ladder break out of the underground and reach the stars.

Now, after finally adopting a little sense of realism the two homeboys have realised that stardom is nothing compared to spamming people on myspace. So the two stoners decided to get a couple of friends and turn up the bass online. Together with their sound crew FIREHOUSE, maffi deal nuff weed and gyals.

Maffi Boys are very dedicated to the art of playing Sensible World of Soccer, rolling weed joints with manitou tobacco and keeping it real in a Vesterbro-style. So watch out! And don’t test! We’ll be putting up new riddims on a weekly basis. We have nuff things brewing – including a delicious chicken.


Growing up in the streets of Hummel City, Vesterbro, MOOG learned the pleasures of sleeping late, playing Sensible World Of Soccer and picking up hot gyals at an early age. He has spent most of his life trying to master these crucial skills. Taking a break from the dog race, Moog is currently focused on reaching a higher understanding of reggae-science and weedology.

Growing up in the streets of Hummel City, Vesterbro, JUNIOR experienced the necessity of rolling well-made spliffs at an early age. Incorporating the aestethic heritage of Scandinavian design, he has spent most of his life perfectionizing this old and traditional art form. Junior is currently taking his ph.d. in digital reggae by buying crates of 80’s 7″ and selecting for his sound system Firehouse.

A lot more big tunes on Necessary Mayhem and Scotch Bonnet followed, along with touring around the globe. From Panama to Japan, from India to Europe – no place is safe from this lyrical machine gun!

Monkey Marc



Straight from the vaults of his solar-powered studio comes Melbourne-based producer Monkey Marc, writing sonically rugged, politically charged beats by day, and playing them on his solar rig, DIY Hi Fi Sound System, by night.

With a background in breakcore, weirdo electronic music and a love for video game soundtracks disrupt and a trashy laptop set out on a mission to unite bits and bytes with the goodness of DUB back in 2003.

Starting the Jahtari imprint as an outlet for those humble but fun experiments helped to gain momentum for the sound and DIY approach the label is now known for. A fair heap of releases followed since 2007: “Foundation Bit” (on Werk Discs), “The Bass Has Left The Bilding” (LP), “Dot Matrix With Stereo Sound” and many ruffneck dancehall EPs and 7″s alongside Maffi and Naram.

Disrupt also produced the cosmic enka LP “Karma No Kusari” by Kiki Hitomi, and the dub poetry epics “Dis Side Ah Town” and “Dog Heart City” by Roger Robinson.

With the trilogy of cosmic library albums “Omega Station“, “The Recreation Room” and “Under Triple Suns” disrupt ventures out deeply into the unexplored space between dub and sonic fiction.
