People can expect a dynamic live journey with uplifting grooves, live dubs, featured guitar riffs and infectious sonic bass. Top this off with soulful 3part vocals and hip-hop inspired MC lines and you have ‘Knights of the Dub Table’.
Since their inception during 2008, they have performed alongside some of New Zealand’s best-known Reggae/Dub acts Katchafire, Tiki Taane, dDub, Rhombus, Cornerstone Roots, Opensouls, Optimus Gryme, Black Seeds, popular Australian Dub outfit The Versionaries and Groundation.
Hailing from Hamilton City the original three members Mr Samy'samson (vocals, guitar), Cy (bass), Sax’imus (MC, sax) first met in 2007 while studying music at the Waikato Institute of Technology. During 2008 they joined forces becoming Knights of the DUB Table, and began to craft their sound into something unique.
In 2009, the Knights of the DUB Table went from strength to strength including supporting major acts at the hugely successful Tribal Pride Music Festival as well as Waikato University O-Week 09, playing Vilagrads Dance Parties, headlining their own gigs, and winning the 2009 York Street Band Experiments. They also released their 'Sing It To Me Remix EP' digitally through amplifier.co.nz.
2010 saw the Knights release the 'Tronic EP' containing four original Knights tracks and five bonus remixes from Tiki Taane, Optimus Gryme, AUM, Undertow and their very own Mr Samy'samson (distributed by Border Music).
“These guys have a great style and for me to be apart of their progression is an honor.” - Tiki Taane 2009
“…they’re a treat to watch on stage…a strong element of improvisation, with lengthy, indulgent interludes that raise energy levels among the crowd before they hit the heavy bass lines. The mish-mash of dub, reggae, drum ‘n bass and rock is a surprising one, but it works well…after a high energy, tight two hour set, Knights of the Dub Table proved they can definitely hold their own.” - Gisborne Herald 2009
“Knights of the DUB Table have continued playing shows left, right and centre with some of New Zealand’s biggest reggae and dub acts… From the outside looking in it looks as though you guys are on the brink of something epic”. Mammoth 2009.
