is this revolution?

dub gabriel feat. the spaceape


Dub Gabriel hits us with his most thought-provoking and subversive tracks to date, highlighting the dilemma facing our global society as people take to the streets striking out against hunger, poverty, war, government corruption and the rise of corporate cultural hegemony. Joined by pioneering UK dubstep MC, The Spaceape (Kode9/Burial) on the incendiary title track “Is This Revolution”, and Chicago’s Mighty Dub Killerz on the flip for the soulful call to action of “These Times” – together they deliver a lyrical mind-bomb that invokes the spirits of Linton Kwesi Johnson, The Clash and Gil Scott-Heron for a new generation.

In July-August 2011, five street artists were invited to NHH Norwegian School of Economics to give their comments on capitalism directly on the schools huge white walls. And the result? That you can see from the video above or under the heading “art” in the top menu. Enjoy
