One for the dubstep dads...

Post by grievous_angel » Fri Jun 16, 2006 1:22 pm

... and mums if there's any here...

Do you try to teach your little ones to sing dubstep basslines?

So far I've had some success with getting Felix (5) to do Haunted and Earth Run a Red. He won't do Monsoon at all.

He's pretty good at doing the chorus of Blood and Fire, and of course Shabba Ranks' Mr Lover Man is second nature:

Dad: "Mr Looooover Man..."
Felix: "SHABBA!"

Anyone else do this?

Quality post! Yes!

lets start with the youngest (7 days old) well he just lays quietly even when awake (for which we give thanks) but he was born at home to the sound of King Tubby and will be raised a bass head

then we have my two year old who I was having some success with:

Me: "One step forward, two steps backward"
Him: "Down inna Babylon"

To be fair it sounded like "Dib bibb abibilon" but he is only two! My girlfriend has sabotaged me tho by teaching him "twinkle twinkle little star" FFS!!

but my step-son, aged 9, is quality not only does he know nearly every word to all my lee perry stuff (even the stuff I can't decipher) he can do the vocal *and* hum the bassline for Zomby Spliff Dub and, fortunately, has not yet asked me what "one spliff a day keeps the Doctor away" means!!

my 7 year old daughter's favorite song right now is hater by various prod, and i've caught her humming the b line from haunted several times too. the moaning in fallen gives her the creeps though.

congrats to you and yours on the new baby boy drbluebeat. we're expecting the same in about two months.

I taught my 12 year old brother to mix records using doubles of a Plasticman record.

nyabinghi...Hmm maybe you can help me? Bob Marley's grandafther Omeriah used to call him by an african name rather than Robert (which he considered a "slave" name or "Nesta" which was what is mother called him) and the way it worked was you called them by the african name of the day they were born on.

For the life of me I can't find the paragraph in the book where I read this. nyabinghi rings a bell, so, you don't happen to know the nyabinghi for Monday do you? or even better can you clarify the above practise?

lol probably not but its worth asking!
