   (2 reviews)

“Dub Echoes” is a documentary that traces the origins of the Jamaican dub music and it’s influence on the development of hip hop and electronic music.The film 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.

At first, one might think that reggae and dance music don’t have much to do with each other. But that’s a false perception. Through interviews with over 40 key names on the history of dub, electronic music and hip hop, "Dub Echoes" connects the dots between of the otherwise fragmented relation between all this genres.

Key names, from both reggae and the electronic music world, talk about the birth of this genre, how it helped to change the way we perceive music and how it’s presence can still be felt today. Just follow the bass lines!

“Dub Echoes” was produced by a Brazilian crew, in Kingston (Jamaica), London (UK), NY, Washington, LA (US), Rio de Janeiro and São Paulo (Brazil).

This is one is a long time coming! I've been a huge dub fan since 1988. I CAN NOT wait to see this!

Yeah dubstep comes out of a fusion of dub and 2-step/drum n bass.. combined and called dub-step. My livetronic band , Eckobase, was doing dubstep and dub back when the genre was just getting started in the early 00s.

This is the DOC on DUB. It covers everything with everyone. The film very carefully explains Dub's roots, founders, technology and influence on Electronic Music and the world.

I was also shocked to find dubstep is Dub. Sorry, Robin.
