Chinese Dub (30 Hertz Records; 30hzcd30), a studio album produced by Jah Wobble, will be released Monday 5 January 2009. The recording includes singers Mongolian/Tibetan Gu Ying Ji and Wang Jingqi, from the Mao ethnic minority of China, part of Yunnan Province (both handpicked by Jah Wobble on a visit to China in 2007), internationally acclaimed guzheng player Zi Lan Liao, flautist Clive Bell, and Wobble himself; the Pagoda Chinese Youth Orchestra also features.

Throughout July and August 2008, Jah Wobble, legendary bass player and contemporary renaissance man, toured the UK with his new project, Chinese Dub, a 22-piece Anglo-Chinese aural and visual spectacular. Combining his trademark dub with Chinese melodies and instrumentation, the maverick music-maker successfully married East and West sensibilities, proving once again that his creative adventurousness is far removed from others’ world music dilettantism. The tour culminated in an appearance on the BBC Radio 3 stage at WOMAD in what was, for many media commentators and punters alike, the highlight of the festival.
