Dub FX (aka Benjamin Stanford) is an Australian musician, street performer and social activist who mixes live looping, beatboxing and world-class production into one sonic mind-fuck. Genre-bending hip-hop, dubstep, reggae, dancehall, d’n’b and jungle into something uniquely his own, Dub FX has gained worldwide recognition for promoting positivity, unity and social awareness via his distinct and powerful lyrics, with acclaimed full-length releases such as Thinking Clear and Roots adding to his reputation.

His upcoming new album, Infinite Reflection, is further testament to this. Taking listeners on a transformative journey that transcends boundaries, each of its nine tracks could easily stand alone as singles and are being treated as such, with a song  issued every Friday until the full album is released on 22nd September.

Floating is an album highlight with a distinct ’70s Jamaican reggae vibe. Talents that include Mista Savona (keyboards), Paolo Baldini (bass), Stevie One-Drop (drums) and Woodnote (saxophone) assist Dub FX in creating a bright summer anthem that nevertheless has a bittersweet lyric sure to resonate with anyone required to leave their loved ones for extended periods of time in order to work. A video for the song offers a glimpse into the typical day-to-day existence of a musician on the road, featuring footage shot on one of Dub FX‘s frequent tours. It can be seen HERE .

Behind the glamorous façade of a life on tour, there is usually a truth that tells a different story, with seemingly endless hours spent in crowded airports, confined aeroplanes, lengthy bus rides, chain hotels and cramped, uninviting backstage areas. Despite all this, the 90 minutes spent on stage each night are worth it, although for Dub FX not even this can surpass the sheer ecstasy of returning home to his wife and children.
