Description
More old skoolish dub. Made with the Albino synth, a Logic bass settings and midi drums tweaked with the Space Designer. Plenty of FX noises, mostly from the Soundtrack collection, altered with the DubStation AU.

All good fun!

Thanks Tom
It was fun! Started to do this one a week or two ago and took all the files out to Italy, where we've been for the past week. I had intended finishing it on my laptop whilst out there, but didn't get around to it. Too much culture in Italy! So it got finished this weekend instead.

Cheers!

Thanks Mo
I'm a big fan of the Jamaican dub sound from the late seventies/early eighties and trying to recreate it using midi and synths is not that easy. It has, for sampled music, a very organic sound. But interesting that you say "slightly comical" - the great dub producers from that time must have either had an amazing sense of humour, or been really stoned, [I suspect the latter!] as their music was often exactly that.

Thanks for dropping by Mo. :-)

Brilliant!
I love a bit of dub. You have some real fun with the sounds here. Some rasta vocal samples would fit in nice here. There's some good ones on a web site I found called soundsnap.com You can get 5 free samples a month!!!

Nice one SBJ
Yep. Dub is cool. I'll certainly check out the site - I agree. This would be great with a few "Jah! Rastafari"s!

Thanks again.

Hi Dave!
This was a new genre for me. Quite enjoyable and well made, even I probably prefer your "usual" style. Nothing wrong with breaking new ground, mind. Sounds a bit inspired by E-W 2-1?! :-)

Hope Italy was great - too much culture, eh? Actually thats what I though after a couple of days in Rome. All those old statues alone....

Stay well.

Thanks Henke
You should check out the genre, especially [imho] the earlier pioneers like Lee Perry, King Tubby and Joe Gibbs. Fantastic music, really great "electronica" that inspired so much of today's stuff. And the gear they used! Not like that which we have available today. Top stuff. Check out this site:
http://www.dub.com/
And look out for the older stuff.

I've attempted to do this before btw. Three other tunes in my "back catalogue" [Ha!] But compared to the original style of the music, they aren't so good!

Yes, and a good win yesterday!

Thanks again Henke. Nice one.
