a definition of DUB by Royston Blake

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.

DUB is today considered a form of popular electronic music and many DJ’s worldwide contribute to it further consolidating as a successful source for their dance oriented, bass driven sequences.

A blend of tech house and deeper tunes to feed the right beat over to the hungrier party heads.
I enjoy fusing together the techno and the house vibes into one unique sonic creation – a creative sound that contracts and expand over each and every other tune bass line.
One can hear small inaccuracies here and there, towards the end, but hey! we’re only humans engaging with the perfection of digital domains.

Enjoy anyhow and thanks for listening 🙂
