An Dannsa Dub (The Dub Dance in Gaelic) is the brainchild of dub vocalist & producer Tom Spirals and Scottish traditional musician Euan McLaughlin formed in 2020. The 6-piece live band fuses the mystical energy and instruments of traditional Scottish music and Gaelic song with the heavy, meditative, driving basslines digital dub music. The band is a unique mix of experienced traditional folk musicians and Dub Reggae specialists, using acoustic and digital instruments.  The result is an explosive heavyweight blend of what the band call ‘Future Dub from Ancient Scotland’.

The first self-titled EP ‘An Dannsa Dub’ was released in Dec 2021 on 12” Vinyl and digital release and has received support across the BBC from the likes of Don Letts and Tom Robinson on BBC 6 Music, Phoebe I.H on BBC Introducing, Bruce Macgregor on BBC Scotland and across BBC Alba. The E.P has also been shown support by well-known artists with the Reggae and Dub sound system scene such as Mungo’s Hi Fi (UK) and O.B.F. (France).
