the emusic dozen: dub
POSTED ON 1/04/2007 | PERMALINK |0 Comments | BOOKMARK

Vivien Goldman takes a look at dub and reviews 12 different dub albums in emusic's library.
Call me a leggo beast (Jamaican patois for "wild one"), but I reckon there is no more significant genre of 20th-century music than dub, the first music to use the studio as an instrument. Its essential arsenal of echo, phasing and reverb was first sharpened by Kingston's King Tubby, working with four-track tape machines, and has been greatly extended by today’s technology; yet the force of the original tools, and those mind-blowing sounds, has never been beaten.
The essays/reviews are well worth reading and the audio samples provided are very intruiging.
