Dub’s pioneers were essentially music’s first remixers. In the ’60s and '70s, early practitioners such as King Tubby, Augustus Pablo, and Lee "Scratch” Perry used analog mixing boards to strip reggae down to its foundations—drums and bass—before adding effects, delay, panning, reverb, vocals, and other instruments like melodica to create alternate versions of popular tunes. The effect was completely intoxicating. And with the advent of digital technology in the decades that followed, things only got more out-there—as the work of contemporary masters like Addis Pablo or Germany’s techno-reared duo Rhythm & Sound illustrates. This playlist gathers from the past and present of dub’s chillest vibes. We regularly add in new selections, so if you hear a track you like, add it to your library.
