Dub, and dub influenced dubstep

Post by plume » Wed Feb 13, 2008 1:56 am

I need more dub in my life. I was drawn to this sound mainly because of the heavy dub influenced tunes that I heard but later stayed for the techier sounds. I'm ready for a change though. can you recommend some good dub influenced dubstep and actual dub music for me?

I know it's sorta vague but I know little about either at this point. Most of the new dubstep that I've heard is a far cry from what was coming out two years ago IMO...

what producers and lables should I look for in both?
what is this stuff?

for the Dub itself there are King Tubby, Scratch Perry, King\Prince Jammy, Scientist, Augustus Pablo, U-Roy...

Suddenly, there was a terrible roar all around us, and the sky was full with what looked like huge bats, all swooping and screeching and diving around the car, and a voice was screaming:
Holy Jesus. What are these goddamn animals?

All the Mungo's Hifi stuff is very dub-related. There is a mix somewhere with about 20min of dub which then tunes into very nice Mungo dubstep stuff all of which are unreleased. Lock them, they're going to be heavy!

Maybe more reggae than dub but Dutch Flowers to me is one of the best party tunes
