Dub Variations is the debut release from The Thomas Family, a duo of Daniel and David Thomas (no relation). Daniel and David record and perform together as Hagman, TST (with Kevin Sanders) and as solo artists; Daniel under his own name, David as Ap Martlet. Between them, they also run the labels Sheepscar Light Industrial, Cherry Row Recordings and Kirkstall Dark Matter.

A combination of David’s solo sketches, made using a modular synthesiser, and Daniel’s field recordings, taken in Hong Kong, formed the basis for the sessions that became these Variations.
Dub Variations is a product of Summer and Winter of 2012.
