Tour de Force (TDF) is a new generation dub reggae sound system collective hailing from Brooklyn, New York. Founded by beat maker/producer Double Tiger and DJ Q-Mastah, TDF is rooted in the tradition of Jamaican Sound Systems while keeping an eye to the future. Inspired by their iconic 15,000W custom-built “Tower of Sound”, TDF’s productions combine elements of Dub, Hip Hop and Electronica, often featuring collaborations with established vocalists and MCs such as Brother Culture, Ranking Joe, Luciano and Jahdan Blakkamoore.
In 2012, the duo created Dub-Stuy Records as an outlet for their music and event promotions. Through their record label and other multi faceted projects, Tour de Force works relentlessly to champion the culture and craft of Sound Systems in New York and beyond. In just over a year, they have established themselves as one of the pillar of the US underground bass music scene and have forged a reputation as the leading crew behind the resurgence and development of Dub Reggae and Sound System culture in America.
TDF’s live performance features live dubbing, explosive vocal performances and a unique selection of dubplates and exclusives spanning a wide range of sounds from UK Steppers, Dubstep to traditional Dub and Reggae. Expect big basslines that will surely rattle your walls!
