WWW, January 2008 - Fasten your seatbelts: we're about to travel a thunderous journey into the Deep, Deep Outer Space of UK DUB.

Deeper Bass, longer echo's, more effects, higher consciousness!

In the 1970's, Bob Marley and the Wailers inspired the birth of a whole flood of UK Roots Reggae bands like Aswad and Steel Pulse. A few years later, DUB would become another dominant force and continues to be so until this very day in 2008.

For some reason, producers in the UK kept on developing the Art of DUB also after Jamaica was said to have lost interest in the remix technique. And so, currently, UK DUB productions and releases are very popular even outside Reggae Circles.

Usually, a UK DUB is produced using "real" instruments and musicians in combination with programmed digital material, everything mixed with ultra-deep basslines. More often than not, the vocals will contain conscious lyrics which definitely adds significant weight in the DUB itself.

DUB ROAD TO TRAVEL definitely is a very good representation of the deep, deep DUB that is produced on that Island in front of the I-ropean continent.

The selections are mixed seamless to ensure a maximum and optimum DUB Experience from the top to the very last drop. The excellent show even contains a few remixes by the Podcaster, who seem to have come up with a concept of his own: "mix-plates".
