Dub derives its name from the practice of dubbing instrumental, rhythm-oriented versions of reggae songs onto the B-sides of 45 rpm singles, which evolved into a legitimate and accepted style of its own as those re-recordings became forums for engineers to experiment with the possibilities of their mixing consoles.

Dub emerged from the studios of Kingston, Jamaica in the ’60s and went on to become one of the 20th century’s most influential music genres in both form and function. Its thread can be discerned in a wild number of music styles, from hip hop, disco, drum & bass, trip hop, dubstep and more. And let’s not forget – without dub, we wouldn’t have the remix!
