From Roots Rocker Dub to Dub Step the sonic template is mutated with differing technology
at hand but the basic aim of mutation: stripping it back, slowing it down, speeding it up, re fixing, re vocaling etc this is what the concept “Dub College” seek to celebrate and explore. And yes our discourse is often Academic and Trainspotter like, but the Essenes of the secret knowledge and experiences passed down from the mother drum mystic of Afrrican percussion and chant is the first and intriguing concern of our reason and parallel. The Dub, to dub being the creative salvation of modern everyday peoples fed lies and fantasies from an uncaring media that reports from the viable, shock worthy instant access factor that tabloid head lines are made for, simple sensational fodder to lull the reader/ viewer in before he/ she is sold yet another piece of western civilisations dream home, car, holiday etc Dub infuenced music should be an interruption to the sonic normality of fathomable easily recognised musicalitym. dub transcends musicalityand becomes part news, part feedback, part word less communion process that leads to cerabel re shuffle of logic and problity.
Deep shit …har. Well that is quite right because frequency moves in mysterious ways.
New dub, old dub. Dub is infinite and forever. Dub is life force and brain food. And of course it is not for everyone. But let it be known that the act of Dub Cultures shall be touch by all human kind in some shape or form.
