WWW, March 2008 - When the Jamaican labels started to release instrumental versions on the B-sides of their 7" singles back in the 1960's, this marked the start of one of the most innovative disciplines in Music Production, which would be DUB.

Brooklyn based DJ Dr. Tahl introduces us the wonderful world of the B-Side: from instrumental versions to spaced out remixes.

Eek A Mouse made his own blend of DJ-ing and singing popular with the incredible Wa-Do-Dem. "Everyone" knows the tune, but not the DUB Version that came with the original 7" release.

A thing which the Brooklyn based DJ Dr. Tahl can cure for sure, and so he does in this great Version Excursion avant la lettre.

Instru Mentality: A Ride On The B-Side gives us some of the hardest DUBS ever to be released on the Jamaican B-sides. At least, the Podcast gives us the answer as to why certain people are more interested in that B-Side than in the A-side.

DUB definitely brings out the best of Reggae, as the engineer behind the mixing board becomes an artist himself by adding effects and interacting with the recorded music in many other ways as well.
