Buda TX



Stronger in Dub

"McPullish has managed to create an intriguing, original reggae sound, which truly differs from the commonly known modern roots reggae." -Reggae Vibes Sept. 2008 McPULLISH is musician/producer Carson Hoovestol, who realized his sound after years of musical exploration, study, and practice in the art of Live Dub. Now based in Buda, Texas, McPullish operates a specialized music laboratory called Dub Cove Studio, where he plays guitar, bass, drums, piano, organ, percussion, 909 drum machine, synths and other random things that make sound and can be recorded. McPullish mixes his tunes live and direct, using an Allen and Heath board, laptop, and a table full of mostly analog gear. Luciano, Sylford Walker, General Smiley, Fantan Mojah, Mark Wonder, Ginjah, Lutan Fyah and Chezidek are just some of the vocalists who have worked with McPullish in the studio and can be heard in his live dub sets. McPullish mixes his own songs live, with vocal and dub cuts on his riddims, as well as occasional cover versions of classic reggae tunes that he has re-built from scratch. The McPullish sound is 100% live instrument tracks, mixed and re-mixed live. Spontaneous and engaging, McPullish operates with his own distinctive sound and boatloads of original music, sounds for deep listeners, reggae fanatics, and anyone ready to shake, move and rock in the dancehall.
