Podcast – 4 – Anthology of Roots Music “Jamaican Dub”

Dub is a sub genre of Reggae developed in the 1960′s in Jamaica and is achieved by significantly manipulating and reshaping the recordings, usually by removing the vocals from an existing music piece, and emphasising the drum and bass parts.

Dub was pioneered by Osbourne “King Tubby” Ruddock, Lee “Scratch” Perry, Errol Thompson and others in the late 1960s.
