Maybe the most influential genre of modern times, dub has shaped many other music forms since its appearance in late 60s. Although it first emerged as a sub-genre of reggae music, dub quickly evolved to an extent beyond the scope of reggae. In the early days, dub music was way ahead of its time, employing unique techniques based on the use of extensive echo, reverb, panoramic delay and other effects at the mixing desk that were at the time relatively unknown in other musical genres. However, these experiments provided dub music with opportunities to explore new sonic territories and interfere with other genres.
In the last 20 years or so dub has influenced many different genres like punk, disco, electronic or rock and also directly affected forms of sub-genres like dub-techno, jungle, trip-hop, dubstep and so on. In this podcast the emphasis is pretty much on dub-techno, a style which combines repetitive minimal structures of techno and complex FX techniques of dub music.
