With the new album "Always And Everywhere“ Dub Mars presents his 3rd longplayer on Lemongrassmusic. 13 vocal tracks and 2 instrumentals shape a truly song-orientated work with a considerable potential for relaxation and for enjoying the calm moments of the day. Except for the cover version "Only Time“ by Enya all the tracks were written and produced by Dub Mars.
The project name says it all – Dub Mars makes kind of dubby music, sometimes with a Chill House feel. A unique base for his unique songs.... regarding the lyrics you will often find ambiguous statements which are not always transparent to the listener.
The songs reflect Dub Mars’ current moods and attitudes in life. Following this relaxed and cosmopolitan approach to life and the fine sense of humor many listeners could identify with the songs and possibly find a buddy for life. The producer and songwriter behind Dub Mars is Mario Christofferson from Northwest Germany. He also participates in further projects like $uperchrome, Breakfast Brothers, Puch, Takt 3, Julienne and Mario Santo.
Mars (alias Mario Christofferson) is back with his second longplayer „Give Me Some More“. On this album he carries on the concept of the first album, coming up with 15 unique and many-folded vocal tracks. The music has a true Electronica and Dub feeling with lots of modern impact. His warm-hearted mostly analogue vibes take the listener through this album, underlining his poetry with a blend of Downtempo and sometimes even heavy dope beats.
Only the purpose to express the mood of the very moment is what counts to him – whether sunny or melancholic, funny or sad, up or down. Like the preceding album „Give Me Some More“ is a fine and rare piece of honesty and unadorned human reality. Mario Christofferson from Germany is a producer, musician, singer and songwriter. Being in the music scene for more than 20 years, he is also the man behind projects such as $uperchrome, Puch, Takt3, Breakfast Brothers, Julienne, Mario Santo and more.
Dub Mars - a storyteller?! Oh yes, he is. Carefully built in 15 chapters, he is providing us an audio journey, which is born out of the very moment, reflecting the presence, past and future. But do not expect any extraordinary issues. The album is meant as a little collection of daily life snippets, which we all experience once in a while, only with a slightly different, personal note. Is Dub Mars telling the truth of life?! Well, Dub Mars doesn't know if he does, and he doesn't care. Only the purpose to express the mood of the very moment is what counts to him - whether sunny or melancholic, funny or sad, up or down. Therefore "The Storyteller" is a fine and rare piece of honesty and unadorned human reality.
Dub Mars is a one man show. Mario Christofferson from Germany is "The Storyteller"' - a producer, musician, singer and songwriter. Being in the music scene for more than 20 years, he is also the man behind projects such as Hell-g and Cara Mc Queen as well as $uperchrome, Puch, Takt3, Breakfast Brothers, Julienne, Microraum, Mario Santo and many more. Musically his mix of styles is all about Electronica but in various facets. Dub Mars goes beyond clichÃ© and doesn't care for genre limitations. In this self-created freedom a unique Dub Mars sound has developed. Stunningly it all appears so simple and logical. Obviously this guy knows about the secret of being one-pointed, not wasting time on useless decorating sounds and effects. Only his voice gets a treatment. Vocoder and similar effects add an artificial appeal. Sometimes "The Storyteller" may appear a bit rough sounding but it is always warm-hearted.
Mario Christofferson underlines his poetry with a blend of Downtempo, sometimes even heavy Dope-Smokin'-Beats, various up-tempo tunes melting bits of Dub, Soul, House and Rare Grooves. The warmth of an analogue production is willingly set as an element of style. Some parts are even lo-fi sounding incorporating the approach of simplicity. The album is taking off with a beautiful ballad called "Between the lines". A dark shimmering love letter perfectly fitting to Mario Christofferson's silky voice. Followed by "Everything will always be good", switching to the positivity of a bright day. "Lost in thought" rides on a lovely percussion. Even if Dub Mars doesn't care at all, "The Storyteller" is musically up to date, cool and hip. It is an album of songs, telling about the beauty and the challenge of human life. If you do not get the message, just get closer and give it a chance once more.
