Biography

Marc Richard Brehmer, better known as "Dubiterian" is a Brazilian musician of whom specializes in playing the melodica, an instrument that was widely spread in the reggae music scene through the great Jamaican producer Augustus Pablo.

Marc was born in Sao Paulo, Brazil in 1976 and started studying classical music for flute and piano at the tender age of 7 at the local music school called "Escola de Musica de Piracicaba Ernst Mahler". At the age of 15, he taught himself to play the bass guitar and left the piano aside for a few years until his brother introduced him to a Hohner Melodica. Since that union, his main instrument remains the Hohner Melodica, using the bass only for studio work.

Marc started composing and recording in 2002, and had his first gig as "Dubiterian" in 2004 in Munich, Germany. Today, he performs with many live shows in Europe, Mexico, Brazil and the US sharing the stage with reggae giants such as the Skatalites, Eek-a-Mouse, Ranking Joe, Adrian Sheerwood, Dub Syndicate, Mad Professor, Gentleman and more. He produces songs with reggae artists from many countries and his music has been released on international labels such as Souljazz records UK, VP records and his own label, Dubiterian Records and More.

After 15 years in Germany Marc moved back to Brazil, where he continues producing his music and currently is working on a Tribute to Augustus Pablo. In 2011 Dubiterian signed a digital distribution contract with VP Records which is the biggest reggae label worldwide.

 

I have tried many melodicas, and I feel this models have a better sound comparing to the piano 32 models.
