Leonardo's Vitruvian

This is a DJ set by Royston Blake a.k.a. Technoterra which presents a music genre loved by many : DUB.

This particular type of sound grew out of the much more popular REGGAE in the sixties, although same is considered a sub-genre DUB music has developed narratives and sound qualities which extend beyond the scope of reggae.

The DUB sound consists predominantly of instrumental versions of other, better known, tracks and is obtained by a significant manipulation of those recordings, likewise vocals get a reshaping and downsizing treatment, components such as drums and bass pattern get emphasised other sound structures get dynamically changed through effects such as echo, reverb , panoramic delay, and other types of synthetic manipulations.
