High Tone

Profile:
Instrumental dub group (guitar, bass, drums, keyboards and turntables) that breaks through the boundaries of the genre. This band is capable of incorporating all sorts of influences from 70's Jamaican dub to electronic music with a touch of ethnical, world music influence. The jungle intros, the oriental samples, the discrete scratches contribute to create a deeply organic warm sound, vibrant with emotions.
From Lyon (France)

Makes many collaborations with other bands:
Kaltone with Kaly Live Dub
Highvisators with Improvisators Dub
Wangtone with Wang Lei
Zentone with Zenzile
High Damage with Brain Damage (2)

High Tone can be called the masters of the french dub without any doubt!!
They invented their very own typical genre breaking down borders of styles uniting nations of sounds. Dub is the ground, jungle and techno are the hybrids, worldmusic samples and sounds are the blooms and downbeat is one big leaf. This is showered with unique visuals live. Since 2005 they do experiments with vocalists on records, yet they were strictly instrumental.
For sure High Tone are the fathers of a whole genre and the absolute masters of sound.
