INTERNATIONAL REGGAE star Alborosie returns today with a fresh release, 'Freedom In Dub', the dub re-imagining of his celebrated Freedom & Fyah album.

The self-proclaimed 'Dub Mechanic', Alborosie has demonstrated his production and remix skills on multiple projects including Dub The System, (counterpart to the 2013 release Sound The System) and Dub Of Thrones with King Jammy in 2015.

With his sixth album for Greensleeves, the 40 year-old Italian artist/producer takes the listener to the roots of reggae music; drum and bass.

Having built his reputation with a decidedly analog approach for delivering authentic reggae sounds, all the tracks on Freedom In Dub were composed, played, produced and mixed by Alborosie from his Shengen studio in Kingston Jamaica.

Beyond his work in the studio, Alborosie, or Alberto D'Ascola, is an expert stage performer with a growing reputation for top flight stage production. His recent New York concert debut at BB King Blues Club in June won the artist a host of new supporters.

Touring in Central and South America as well as a stint in Brazil with Ky-Mani Marley will round out the performer's schedule through year end.

"Alborosie has done a great job in building his following" said VP Records President Randy Chin.

"We're excited about the release of Freedom In Dub and all that will follow."
