The dub version of ‘NRG MOB’ has landed

Tokyo-based artists The Magus Project and Rob Kidney released the dub version of their neo-breaks single ‘NRG MOB’ today after an eight-month wait.

Their ‘Hong Kong Dub’ is a “boiled down and thickened up” version of their collaboration and comes with vibrant new hand-painted artwork courtesy of Kidney, who is also a visual artist.

The dub was previously only available to attendees of the opening of Kidney’s ‘Hong Kong Garden’ exhibition, who received a limited edition CD containing the dub in lieu of a paper or e-invite.

Held at Perks Souvenir Store, ‘Hong Kong Garden’ was Kidney’s debut solo show in Hong Kong and was covered by Mixmag Asia with a video interview and recap.

Available on all streaming platforms as well as on Bandcamp, ‘Hong Kong Dub’ boasts a grittier and deeper low-end while retaining the joyful melodics that made the original an instant classic.
