"MAKIN' DUB (3)" (WEBMASTER'S COLUMN)
WWW, January 18 2009 - DUB is basically a de-construction of music and it started with Reggae. Still, Reggae is the best music to make DUB with, even though this is not a must.
Instrumental Reggae music is recorded on several tracks, and the recorded material is then later mixed in the studio by the engineer.
I make my Dub according to the very same principal as that which was applied in Jamaica during the 1970's and 1980's, even though I am not a preterist and do not fear modern technology at all.
The principal, however, is that I will make an instrumental Reggae track which I will then transform into a DUB at a second phase in the process.
This is a thing that not every modern DUB producer applies, by the way...
One Love, Give Thanks,
