Born 1977,  Cologne / Germany. While he was living in London in 1993/94 he went to his first Jah Shaka Dance. Since then  heavily addicted to Dub Soundsystem music and bass. Returning back to Germany in 95 he met Oli Dread from Dubfront Outernational who, by that time, seemed to be one of the few people in Cologne knowing about the Dub / UK Roots and Culture thing that was going on in London. In 1999 the two and another friend, Frank, decided to build a Dub studio in Cologne. This studio, now known as Tabanackle Dub Chamber, grew over the years, trying to recreate a sound and atmosphere inspired by veteran Dub Engineers like King Tubby, Jammy`s, Scientist, Lee Perry, Wackies and especially the late 70s/early 80s sound of Channel One Studio.
Great influences came from the UK. Producers like Jah Shaka, the Disciples, Iration Steppas, Manasseh, Alpha & Omega, just to name a few, and various soundsystem dances were the major reason for wadadda to start producing music...`inna roots an` digital style`. Together with friends from Cologne and Berlin he runs a self-built soundsystem and organises soundsystem dances as the DubClub Cologne trying to keep dub soundsystem culture alive in Germany. Over the years, Wadadda played lots of dances presenting his own `Tabanackle Players` productions mixed with new material from the UK and vintage Roots and Dub. He is also a great fan of classic arab music such as Um Kalthoum, Fayruz and many others. Mid 2006 Wadadda was introduced to Dubstep sound. By that time he read an article about Berlin based Producer Dj Maxximus discovering he was an old schoolmate from back in the days and linked up with him. Inspired by people like Digital Mystics, Skream, Kode 9, Youngsta, Forensics and many others he started creating his own style of Dubstep or Dreadbass, whatever you want to call it. The results are out on MG77 Recordings. And more will come! | | booking: info [at]
