"UK DUB" (WEBMASTER'S COLUMN)
WWW, August 22 2009 - I don't know about you, but I love some good UK DUB.
Usually, that would be a combination of digital and analogue instruments and effects, together with either some crucial Dub mixing or uplifting vocals, or both.
I can listen to it for hours in a row, preferably with some extra bass even though UK DUB isn't really lacking anything in the low frequencies, generally.
The sound is hard to describe, but one selector of contemporary digital music said to me UK DUB starts where House Music ends, which has everything to do with the prominent role of the bassline.
(Steve) Vibronics is one good representant of this specific discipline within Reggae Musicology, and the fact that there are quite a few free/legal Vibronics MP3's enables everyone to check out his productions out for themselves at no risk at all.
One Love, Give Thanks,
