„Tubax brings some of the most bizarre funk-and-synth-infused dance-jazz you’ll ever hear“ W.C. Ruffnel – Dayton City Paper (USA)

„I Tubax riescono a fondere con esiti positivi stilemi e realtà diverse in una visione d’insieme riuscita e di forte attrattiva. Grandiosi.“ Michele Montagano – RockIt

„Il più delle volte i brani sono movimentati e articolati, sviluppano le idee in maniera interessante e non del tutto prevedibile. È un ascolto impegnativo in più di una occasione, nonostante (o forse proprio a causa di) un persistente groove dalle coloriture scintillanti, ma si tratta senza dubbio di un progetto originale, meritevole di trovare un pubblico più ampio.“ Alessandro Besselva Averame – Il Mucchio

„This is definitely one of the most interesting funk releases I have heard in a long time, and I like how raw the production is, and how organic the overall sound is. The Tubax guys make it all sound so easy almost intuitive and jam-like, but, in reality, the music on this release is very complex and technical“ Sea Of Tranquility (USA)
„Altogether, Tubax was a breath of fresh air for the normally chill stage of Donkey and really set the tone for what was coming next.“ Katie Pinter – ACRN’S SCENE AND HEARD (USA)

„Freschi, concisi, i Tubax non si perdono mai in elucubrazioni masturbatorie da scuola di musica ma rivoltano con acume e forza il loro messaggio musicale all’ennesima potenza.“ Emanuele Tamagnini, 5 su 5 – Nerds Attack

„[…] qualcosa che non deve essere passare inosservato. Un album assolutamente da ascoltare.“ Acidi Viola

„Otto tracce strumentali […], tra cavalcate prog, funk da dancefloor e un cargo incredibile d’ironia“. Bolobazza

„Possibly the most interesting dirty funk release since Herbie Hancocks „Headhunters“, this release is recommended to any adventurous fan of supah funkay music.“ Time_Signature – ProgFreak

BIO
Active since 2007 Tubax are a veritable dirty-electro experiment of prog and funk, a wise mix of technique and raw dance floor groove.
Armed with drums, bass and synth, this trio from Bologna gives life to a breathtaking live set, where the rhythmic frenzy and the hypnotic intertwining of melodies seem to be drawn from a psycho, surreal, metropolitan imaginary, reminding of a space action videogame soundtrack or a visionary background for a cyberpunk comic. Keep still or take eyes off the stage is impossible. Their first homonymous demo was recorded in Bologna in the historic Magazzeno studio, head quarter of the Mariposa and Trovarobato label, which in 2008 asked Tubax to represent the Tutta Roba Marca project on Indipendulo stage at M.E.I. (Meeting Etichette Indipendenti – the most important annual meeting of italian independent labels). In 2009 they were placed second in the national MArte Live contest; in the same year, the Nonnetto Coatto Giga Bar Taboga 20 troupe realized in only 45 hours the videoclip of „I topi non avevano nipoti“ tune, winning the 45 Giri Film Festival 2009 edition.
In 2011 the roman label Megasound released Tubax’ album „Il mondo stava finendo“, which includes both a reinterpretation of old demo tracks and new unreleased tunes and features musicians (Enrico Gabrielli, Music for no movies..) coming from widely different scenes, who have introduced wide-ranging new atmospheres and sound.
In September 2011 and then in 2012 Tubax, together with the roman group Tribraco, went on a one-month concert tour in the United States, spanning from the Mid West to the East Coast. They delivered their music to some of the biggest cities in the world (New York, Chicago, Boston, Detroit…) and they played with Tim Dalh and Kevin Sheehan from Taliban in New York.
In 2013 they took part to the Match&Fuse festival by playing at Vortex in London. Then, together with WSP (UK) and OWLS (POL), they embarked on a European tour through Britain, Poland and Italy. At the same time they started to work on “Governo Laser”. The album was recorded in 7/8 months by Giacomo di Paolo and mixed by Andrea Suriani.
In 2014 they had the chance to find out that Russians are unexpectedly fond of their music. No doubt thus that they are going to do this amazing Russian experience again in the next future.
In 2015 “Governo Laser” is finally released. The album is being launched at Locomotiv Club on April 10th and will be followed by a promotional tour, which will start from Italy to land to Russia, Europe and the United States.

Con il loro secondo album, Governo Laser, riportano agli inseguimenti dei poliziotteschi anni ’70.

Governo Laser è un disco registrato in più sessioni, per raggiungere una perfezione quasi maniacale, un disco nato in un garage prontamente attrezzato e addobbato al meglio per dare forma e sostanza a pezzi che sono perle di genere, hanno i numeri per diventare luci in un mondo di sistemi automatizzati.
