Forever holding sentimental value due to their 1998 classic “Cyclone”, it’s good to see the Dub Pistols are still able to provide that classic reggae/ska breakbeat sound they’ve come to be known for. New track “Gunshot”, featuring UK hip hop icon Rodney P and reggae vocalist Darrison.
They all carry on that tradition with an intro that blends slow infectious grooves with trumpets that are so chilled out they ought to come with rolling papers – before it descending into old school jungle and drum n bass mayhem. With the days lasting a little longer and getting (slightly) warmer, this is the tune to get you primed for summer.

‘Gunshot’ is the third single taken from Dub Pistols’ celebrated fifth studio album, ‘Worshipping The Dollar’, released last summer on Sunday Best Recordings.
