Piper Street Sound (Matt Mansfield) produces Dub based, transnational music from his studio 899 Piper Street in Atlanta, Georgia. Working with live musicians and organic instrumentation and inspired by in-home studios such as Lee Perry’s Black Ark and King Tubby’s, Piper Street Sound collects and absorbs musical energy with all varieties of bands and musicians passing through day by day, adding their touch to the music being directed and guided by Piper Street Sound.

in 2011 after playing and touring with live bands for years, Matt dove into the studio, working long uninterrupted days and seasons at a time, writing dozens of new songs, remixing many more, and incorporating a massive stylistic influence from Cumbia, Chicha and the electrifying Cumbia Digital, Nu-Cumbia and Latin Bass subcultures that he really noticed with his purchase of ZZK Sound Vol 1 in 2008. Chicha De La Piedmont is a product of roots era Dub and Reggae but forwards the conversation to include strong Dancehall and Jungle elements, Cumbia percussion grooves and bass lines, and a heavy, surf guitar/psychedelic vintage influence from Chicha musicians like Jamie Moriera of Los Shapis and Chicha Libre guitarist Vincent Douglas. Guitarist Russ Bledsoe of Dialect Trio makes guest appearances on the title track and the aptly titled Cumbiarus lending his bluesy expertise to help round out a picture of the guitar music of the Appalachian Piedmont meeting the guitar music of the Amazon and the Andes under written by driving, complex electronic poly-riddims conjoined by a Dub pulse
