Since the release of their second album, In Dust, in August 2011, Stockholm’s Roll the Dice have captivated audiences around the world with their shadowy, pure analog live performances (including All Tomorrow’s Parties, Mutek, Berghain, and with Portishead). When the time came to commission remixes of tracks from the album, the group knew exactly where they wanted to go. Stefan Betke first came into contact with Roll the Dice’s Peder Mannerfelt and Malcolm Pardon when they asked him to master their Live in Gothenburg EP in 2011. Betke, who runs the Scape Mastering studio in Berlin, is better known by his artist name, Pole, responsible for some of the most distinctive and influential electronic records of the last fifteen years. Pole’s dramatic and harmonious reworks on In Dubs are worthy of the adopted dub reggae nomenclature and exhibit a similar warmth and analog physicality to that of Roll the Dice, so it’s a marriage made in heaven.
