[PENNSYLVANIA] After releasing his highly anticipated first album HEART & HAVOC. Dubby brings his fans a big thank you with this free downloadable track BRACE 4 IMPACT. This single was originally supposed to be the fourth song on the album, but they decided not to include it since it musically didn’t fit in. But I’m glad he still released this track, anyway. BRACE 4 IMPACT features Suzii, and was produced by Diamond Style. One thing I really like about Dubby he collaborates with female singers that give a balance to the concept of the track. The track is about a relationship that didn’t work out due to the lies, back-stabbing, and assumptions. Their lifestyles made it impossible for them to reignite what was once there. What did you think about BRACE 4 IMPACT?
After we saw the visual to Cal Mobley x Dubby’s ANTE MERIDIEM, we finally get the collaborative EP called The Climb. With The Team Loko Movement they’ve been gaining momentum over the past year when they were releasing a handful of projects by Cal Mobley and Dubby. The chemistry between both artist really developed a certain sound/vibe that it was hard not to stop. It just seemed to make sense to unite on a joint project before dropping their biggest projects to date such as Cal Mobley’s “Medicine for Monsters” and Dubby’s with the “Heart & Havoc EP”. This time joining their talents on The Climb EP. I’ll be reviewing my favorite tracks off the project.
[THE CLIMB] Whenever anyone sets goals for themselves, they’ll be times it feels the climb to the top is brutal and they’ll be people trying to stop you move forward. Even people who you think are your friends, and find a way to backstab you while you’re on your way up. On this track the guys shows us they’re willing to surpass these obstacles. Produced by Runaway Muzic. I really like how Dubby is embracing his melodies and bringing his vocals to life. Cal Mobley takes over the second half of the track, and I’m diggin’ his flow.
[ANTE MERIDIEM] is that late night tip type of song, when partying all night and see when morning comes up. The house party with masks was pretty dope! Covering their identities and staying true to their niche. Love the shots and effects filmed by Bradley Atom, it fits perfectly with production by PØWELL. This would have to be one of m favorite tracks on the The Climb EP.
[INERTIA] This track really embraces the whole dance/dub vibe with futuristic sounds by Canis Major. Speaking of futuristic Cal Mobley even has a line reference to a space ship. Cal’s flow is a bit slowed down but here’s where you can fully imagine what he has to say. Dubby’s hook and bridge is on point and makes me want to press repeat two times! Maybe, a little more. Definitely a fun track! I can see myself dance to this one.
1. The Climb – Dubby (0:00-2:51) Cal (2:51-end)
2. Ante Meridiem – Cal (Hook 1 and 2 & Verse 1) Dubby (verse 2 and hook 3)
3. Whip Game – Dubby (Hook) Cal (Verse 1 & 2)
4. Inertia- Dubby (Hook and bridge) Cal (Verse 1 & 2)
The Climb features some select producers including Canis Major who will be reoccurring on Dubby’s H&H project, Runaway Muzic, The Cratez, and Powell. All Recording, Mixing, & Mastering done by Jason Shaffer (www.fulltiltrecording.com).
This concludes my review on The Climb EP by Cal Mobley x Dubby! Both artist display signs of growth and can’t wait to see what the TEAM LOKO MOVEMENT will be debuting next!
The Team Loko Movement is bringing us the latest visual release from Cal Mobley and Dubby, with ANTE MERIDIEM. Cal Mobley and Dubby both had separate collaborating tracks on each of their projects Medicine for Monsters and Heart & Havoc EP, it only made sense to unite forces and create a joint project. January 17th get set for the official release of their collaboration project with THE CLIMB EP. The Climb features some select producers including Canis Major who will be reoccurring on Dubby’s H&H project, Runaway Music, The Cratez, and Powell.
ANTE MERIDIEM is that late night tip type of song, when partying all night and see when morning comes up. The house party with masks was pretty dope! Love the shots and effects filmed by Bradley Atom, it fits perfectly with production by PØWELL. Be on the lookout from more new music from the Team Loko Movement with Cal Mobley and Dubby with The Climb EP.
[PENNSYLVANIA] Dubby is bringing that fuego 🔥 with his latest track PHAKE. A lot of lyrical content from Dubby of Team LoKo. He also maintains that super catchy melodies between his verses. Dubby dedicates PHAKE to all those phony little rap boys. According to Dubby “If you’re garbage, stop. You’re ruining it for the ones who really do this… sheesh“. PHAKE was produced by The TrendsetterZ. One thing I really like is Dubby’s capability to rap over any type of production. On the second verse he sounds like a completely different person, but it’s him. He’s able to switch his flow throughout the track. Be on the look out for more exclusives from Dubby!

[PENNSYLVANIA] Check out the latest single from Dubby of Team Loko with MONEY POOLS featuring the Detroit native, Wayne Chapo of Full Time Real (FTR). Inspired by a trap production by Scott Supreme from the UK. Last time we featured Dubby of Team Loko was when I featured his visuals for WELCOME TO THE SHOW, fresh off his Corpus Callosum mixtape. The collaboration between Dubby and Wayne Chapo mend well together. The overall vibe is straight krunk. MONEY POOLS can definitely be played at a club or crazy house party. || TWITTER || SOUNDCLOUD || YOUTUBE || INSTAGRAM ||
Attending a live show can really influence the listerner in becoming a true fan, just by you’re live performance. Dubby of Team Loko brings us his visuals for his latest release WELCOME TO THE SHOW, fresh off his Corpus Callosum mixtape. The video shows us how it’s exactly like when Dubby hits the stage. You can tell Dubby brings alot of energy into his performance and what about his project though? It’s definitely worth a listen. So far my favorite tracks from his mixtape are Room, Fixx, Vagabond, and of course Welcome To The Show! I find his music to be on another level. Starting with his choice on production to the concepts based right out of his actual life. Stay tuned for more from Dubby and don’t forget to download Corpus Callosum brought to you by an inspiring artist from a small town called Gettysburg.
Part of his 9 O’Clock Drop series (Week 5) Pennsylvania Hip-Hop Artist Dubby of Team Loko brings out KATNISS. If you’re not familiar with that name, it’s the main heroine from The Hunger Games. Dubby wanted to display he’s emotions towards talentless crooks in the game. Those getting recognized for their stupidity. Liked Dubby’s flow on the track.
Ya’ll so soft and ya bars like flocks
So while these rappers tending sheep, I tend to do it differently
I’ve been workin on my aim
And they say I brought the flame, come on
Ribs showing staying hungry in the game

Dubby of Team Loko has been staying busy since he created the 9 O’Clock Drop which began on October 1st and will continue throughout the month of October. Every Tuesday night Dubby will release new content either song or visual right at 9:00pm. Dubby’s first week showcased his visual of JESSE JAMES (MOST WANTED). I’m really feeling the production by Sinima Beats. It definitely gives off the old western bad boy vibe. Due to the fact, the track is based off the infamous outlaw Jesse James. Dubby stays descriptive and stays within the story.
Tumbleweed blown, six shooter and a sheriff badge
Circumstance, Jesse had the shotty and the contraband
Arrival in the west he was America’s most wanted man
Gun in hand, loved to shuffle Benji’s in a duffle bag
