about

Ringmaster Ryan Moore never disappoints, and in his ninth full album, he once again slathers on his signature reverb over intricate drumming and classic dub bass for that inimitable Twilight Circus creaminess. The perfectly placed wails of static sear the rolling moans of low-slung bass while haunting organ riffs float above. What makes Moore's tracks so stunning is his ability through his instrumentation (all played and mixed himself) and careful panning arrangements to produce a sound that evokes the expansiveness of three-dimensional space. From the bass undulations to the high-flying whines and whirls, and the expansive mid-range effects, Dub Plates 3 is sonic depth exemplified. Step into the tent and hear for yourself. - Selena Hsu (xlr8r.com)

ALTERNATIVE PRESS AUG 2002 '25 BANDS POISED TO INVADE AMERICA'

Born in Vancouver and now based in Amsterdam, Ryan Moore has been at the forefront of the modern dub scene since 1995, recording nine albums as Twilight Circus Dub Sound System. Ryan Moore honed his chops playing drums for psych-rock-cult faves Legendary Pink Dots and bass for Skinny Puppy side project the Tear Garden. He caught a serious dub jones at age 13, though, and eventually the need to express himself in that genre became too strong to ignore. Luckily for dub fans, Moore has consistently pumped out excellent albums that honor the music's tradition while also advancing it into heady psychedelic realms rarely reached by others in the field. Moore's use of his own drums beats (rather than programming beats with computer software) and ability to perform overdubs in real time separate him from his more clinical-sounding peers.
