Storyline

The documentary "Dub Echoes" shows how the Jamaican invention called dub ended up influencing much of the music we hear today, from electronic music to hip-hop, transforming the studio in a musical instrument and giving way to all of sonic experiments. Written by Bruno Natal

The founders of instrumentals, remixes, mix-tapes and block parties
30 May 2009 | by (Netherlands) – See all my reviews

Dub Echoes tells the story about the come up of reggae and how the dub techniques still echoes through all sorts of music genres. The introduction already shows that a lot of music-legends are involved: Thievery Corporation, Basement Jaxx, Lee Perry, Bunny Lee, King Tubby, Beat Junkies, Kode 9, Roots Manuva and many others.

As a documentary, Dub Echoes might not be the most entertaining you will ever see. It's mostly interviews, luckily the interviewed are all influential people in the world of music. Some of the interviewed talk kind of slow (probably stoned?). I guess you got to be interested in dub/reggae or at least in making music.

Anyhow the musically not-knowing people must be educated, so show 'em this documentary. Because instrumentals, remixes, mixed tapes and block parties are all founded by the dub music scene.
