Declan Kelly presents Dieseln'Dub - King of The Mountain

Declan Kelly presents Dieseln'Dub - King of The Mountain
Highly respected Australian musician and producer Declan Kelly hatched the idea of reinventing some of Australia’s most powerful protest songs into dub-reggae anthems. In developing the concept Kelly was motivated by the strong parallels between reggae music’s social conscience foundations and the outspoken political activism in Midnight Oil’s songs. “Diesel n’Dub was a dream of mine for a long while. I had heard some of the Midnight Oil songs sung by other people and especially First Australians, then with my love of reggae music felt it right to fuse the two together. Reggae has always been a platform for rebel music, and Midnight Oil has always been a band that addresses world issues in a powerful musical way. I am always humbled by their willingness to take a stand and voice out what needs to be said. To invite prominent Indigenous singers to sing the parts once sung by Peter Garrett seemed very fitting.” (Declan Kelly)

About this track...

Midnight Oil's hit King of the Mountain reinvented as a rollicking, ska-tinged, reggae feel-good anthem. Powerful lyrics, great vocals from Tony Hughes and the Stiff Gins and high energy produced by Declan Kelly. This one is a huge crowd-pleaser and should be played up loud!
