Fusing the spirit of late-70’s UK punk and reggae with today’s sense of urgency and foreboding to create a deep, dense, subterranean dub, MEGATIVE is an NYC collective of musicians, artists and producers who aspire to stand up tall amidst the noise and confusion of the world with a big, bold, defiant sound.
Part Gorillaz, part The Clash, laced with King Tubby-style dub FX and swirling sirens straight out of Jah Shakka’s sound system, MEGATIVE is the sound of all these jamming together in an underground basement after-party at the end of the world.
MEGATIVE’s music is an addictive pulse shot through with the immediacy of the moment. With echoes of Two-Tone, UK-punk, the trance of nocturnal dub and the aggressive insistence of modern hip-hop. These are songs that fuse space-and-time with the vibe of a monstrous global megacity sprawl… an urban ghost-walk through the haunted negative space that exists invisible within the accelerating hyper-noise of incessant information.
