We hebben twee uur vette dubs klaarstaan deze week. Van Steppers tot Technodub, Militant Roots Dub en Rubadub. Laat de bassen u vervoeren naar de hoogste sferen.
In a 1982 essay, Luke Ehrlich describes Dub through this particular scope: “With dub, Jamaican music spaced out completely. If reggae is Africa in the New World, then dub must be Africa on the moon; it’s the psychedelic music I expected to hear in the ‘60s and didn’t. The bass and drums conjure up a dark, vast space, a musical portrait of outer space, with sounds suspended like glowing planets or the fragments of instruments careening by, leaving trails like comets and meteors. Dub is a kaleidoscopic musical montage which takes sounds originally intended as interlocking parts of another arrangement and using them as raw material, converts them into new and different sounds; then, in its own rhythm and format, it continually reshuffles these new sounds into unusual juxtapositions.”
