Michael Dupar listens to Dublab.
It is easy to dismiss dub as a sub-genre of reggae that merely doubles down on the bass and the potency of one’s tincture, but as anyone who has taken the time to sink into its wormhole would testify, dub is about exploration, hallucinatory nuances, and the spaces between the sounds. Dub is like deja-vu due it’s constant reinterpretations and the fact that any good dub has been digested, excreted and contorted countless times. Dub is for the obsessives, made by the obsessives, but it never demands the sort of attention or pedantry one often associates with obsession.
Herein lies a dusty collection of dub, assembled in a lair of dank squalor and composed as a dirge to all the joints that never rolled quite as long as they should have. This is a mix for those that never hung a Legend poster in their dorm-room and for those that always preferred their mixes with skits. This mix is best ingested alone in one’s underwear after a gluttonous meal and with the volume very high.
