Having been a hardcore reggae fan and a devoted listener to the Dr. Dread show in my D.C. days, there was no question I would be drawn to the Dub stylee when I discovered electronic dance music ... long before I had become a MixMeister, I had created numerous mix-tapes featuring the sound ... here is the original write-up for this page:

Dub is the ur-Reggae, and there are many fine compilations devoted to it (e.g., Burning Towers of Dub on Rhino.)  What keeps on surprising me is how much excellent present-day dub and dub-influenced stuff is out there on music sites like www.mp3.com.  The Bone Thing dub sets span the range of variations on dub that populate music now.

Well, of course, the website mp3.com is no more, but that doesn't mean that Dub fell off the face of the earth ... numerous practitioners such as Noiseshaper and Doctor Echo are keeping the flame alive, as are the many MadameFLY dub mixes, now part of the Dub & Dubber series ...

Page update in August 2010:  Since the Dub & Dubber series seems to warrant a new addition on at least an annual basis, it seemed handy to gather all the existing dub set-lists in one place … something only a nerd could love, or so you might suppose.  But there's useful info here:  the artists who reappear from mix to mix are clearly on a streak, at the very least, and quite likely to be worth checking out independently, depending on your appetite for new music.  Complete info, including the album title and year of release (where available) can be found on the set-lists archive page elsewhere on the site.
