Electronic music grabbed Kukan Dub Lagan when he was 16-years-old and has yet to let go for more than 25 years now. In between then and now the international musician has worked as a sound engineer for one of the top sound and light companies in Israel, and played everywhere from Europe and Russia to Japan and New Zealand. To date, he has over a dozen releases to his name, including 2020’s ‘Searching For A Fogbow.’
An innovator and true creator in the electronic scene, Kukan Dub Lagan dropped his debut, ‘Life Is Nice,’ in 2004. Fusing ambient, dub, world, downtempo, funk, and the indescribable to create a unique journey full of groove, bass, and soulful sound - he notes that at the end of the day he composes “sunshine music for smiling people.” Something the world continues to need daily. Since his 2004 debut, this master of electronic sound has released a cascade of albums, EPs, and singles including 2009’s ‘New Life New Vision,’ 2013’s ‘Delicious Beats,’ and his latest release that centers around life, reality, and truth.
“Gamut of Emotions” and “Reality is Quite Fugacious” for example, each presents a different side of his overall thematics while remaining individualistic and pure. “Gamut of Emotions” is otherworldly from the press of play, as “Reality Is Quite Fugacious” utilizes tension to drive the song to new levels. 11-tracks deep, this is a cinematic experience for fans of music that takes leaps and bounds to places many artists don’t even dare reach for.
In his lengthy career, Kukan Dub Lagan has been lucky enough to perform around the world in the underground scene, as well as at big-time festivals across the globe like Portugal's Boom Festival, Psy Fi in The Netherlands, and Sziget & Ozora in Hungary. He was also one of the pioneers of the Israeli chill out scene to perform worldwide. As the next 25 years get underway, Kukan Dub Lagan’s plans remain the same; play live, make music, and make people smile around the world. Whether that is with his current album or the new one he’s working on, ‘Sorian,’ all that matters is that the music is there and that he can make the world better with it.
