Knights of the DUB Table combine elements of Reggae, Drum‘n’Bass, Dubstep, Hip-Hop and Rock into their own fusion of Dub flavoured music with powerful high-energy performances that leave the crowds wanting more.
Since their inception during 2008, they have performed with some of New Zealand’s best-known Reggae/Dub acts Katchafire, dDub, Optimus Gryme, House of Shem and Cornerstone Roots as well as popular Australian Dub outfit, The Versionaries.
Hailing from Hamilton City the original four members Mr Samysam’son (vocals, guitar), Sir Cypher (bass), Sax’imus (MC, sax) and Synth’silion (keys, beats) 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 October 2008 they pulled in Tootz (trumpet) and Dr. Umm who was later replaced by Ridim’ix (drums).
In 2009 alone, the Knights of the DUB Table have gone 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 released their 'Sing It To Me Remix Ep' digitally in 2009. Their new 'Tronic EP' hits shops April 6th 2010 (distributed by Border Music). Containing bonus remixes from Tiki Taane. Optimus Gryme, AUM, Undertow and their very own Mr Samy'samson.
“Since their inception the Knights have gone from strength to strength...2010 is shaping up to be a big year.” - New Zealand Musician Magazine 2010.
“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
“From the outside looking in it looks as though you guys are on the brink of something epic”. Mammoth 2009.

Sing It To Me-a brooding dub piece, it sets a compelling scene with strong vocals, catchy lyrics and resonant horn lines. Nothing short of epic, this hypnotic tune displays the potential to stir the soul of those listening via a strong emotive.
