Dub music on the radio

Dub music is a subgenre of reggae that emerged in the late 1960s and early 1970s in Jamaica. It is characterized by the heavy use of bass and drums and the manipulation of recorded tracks through techniques such as echo, reverb, and delay. Dub music is known for its stripped-down sound and the emphasis on the rhythm section.

One of the most influential figures in the development of dub music was the producer King Tubby, who created a number of innovative dub tracks in the early 1970s. Other notable dub artists include Lee "Scratch" Perry, Augustus Pablo, and Scientist.

In recent years, dub music has influenced a number of electronic music genres, including dubstep and jungle. Dub has also been fused with other styles such as rock, hip-hop, and jazz.

There are a number of radio stations that specialize in dub music. Some of the most popular include Bassport FM, Dubplate.fm, and Rinse FM. These stations feature a mix of classic and contemporary dub tracks, as well as interviews with artists and DJs in the genre.
