DIG THAT FUNKY SOUND

Ian Wright loves Dion Dublin’s Dube

Musical instrument making waves in the industry

If you’ve seen Dion Dublin on the TV any time in the last couple years, there’s a good chance he will have been hawking his beloved percussive invention ‘the Dube‘, which, to The Spoiler‘s uncultured eye, is basically a £300 wooden box with a few holes in it.

As you can see from the video above, though, it does make a beautiful sound.

The Dube has already won praise from luminaries like Feeder, Tim Westwood and Muse, but Dion must be most proud of the acclaim lavished upon his invention by best mate and music legend Ian Wright in last week’s Metro:

I love the look, sound and design of the Dube, it’s completely new. With the mic inside it as well it’s so easy to amplify and really easy to play.

I love the fact that my good friend Dizzy has invented it and know he will do very well… sounds just amazing.

And when it comes to music, trust us, Ian knows. Remember?…

    Isn’t it just a cajón with a paint-job?
