"US DUB?" (WEBMASTER'S COLUMN)
WWW, November 3 2009 - Listen to "Scratch to Win" by Ticklah, it's featured in today's edition of Dubroom Online. The Dub is crucial, the music is too, and the fact that Ticklah comes from the US says a thing there.
While in America, I witnessed how different the musical styles and preferences are when it comes to Reggae Music. I witnessed how Dub is still to rise up in ways that the style has already achieved in Europe, especially the UK although France is a good second.
However, with engineers like Ticklah and the Canadian based Dubmatix, I do foresee the possibility that in an overseeable future, Dub could very well claim it's place in the North American continent.
Will there ever be such a thing as a clear, distinctive style of Dub like UK DUB? A US DUB, if you will?
One Love, Give Thanks,
