The HISTORY & INFLUENCE of DUB & SOUNDSYSTEM CULTURE (2020 Documentary)
Dub is an experimental and influential Jamaican music genre that grew out of reggae in the 1960s. The style consists of instrumental remixes of existing reggae recordings and is achieved by significantly altering and reshaping the recordings, usually through the emphasis of bass and drums, the application of studio effects such as echo and reverb, and the occasional dubbing of vocal or instrumental snippets from the original version. The genre is heavily linked to Jamacian sound system culture and has had a huge influence on the development of various music genres such as hip hop, jungle, post punk, dubstep, dub techno and ambient.

In this tutorial video reggae keyboard player @pollensi_official shows you 4 different ways how to bubble and bang in a live situation. Reggae rhythm from noob to pro. All about the organ bubble and the piano bang combined. From easy for beginners to challenging for experts.
Let’s talk about a timeless classic technique: dub effects. There are three core parts to pulling this off: – a delay unit with a volume control before it (e.g. a return channel) – a delay unit with feedback above 100% (with a limiter to be sure) – use your hands to control the feedback (with a MIDI controller) Once you’ve got this set up you can try different speeds, chaining more strange effects, and creating unique layers. I also recommend bouncing these effect layers to audio to use the best takes. I’ll show this in Ableton Live, but this applies in all DAWs!
In this video I take you through my usual process for making Dub Reggae. For me, the genre is all about experimenting, but this should give you a solid foundation to start playing around with your own sounds. This video wasn’t planned so I kind of jump around a bit but the geeral idea should be a good jump off point for anyone looking to make Dub Reggae
