Ok , Bin Ez,
as i mentioned before i been really busy at uni (im in Galway, btw) , and dont have so much time to check *all* the posts anymore :(
Ok , so thr guinness ads are probably not facts:
the harp, the date & Time etc ,
but they add to the legend.
and it beats looking at some crap Heineken ads!!

I had a lovely pint of the black stuff the other evening , poured as it should be by an old man.
Just the one , mind!!

As for the arctic , thats about Tom Crean , one of the only survivors of Scotts trip to the antarctic. He managed to make it home , and opened a pub in Kerry or somewhere.

later,

Dub is the art of re arranging a pre recorded reggae track using the mixing console and adding sound effects using the the effects proccesor.The Dub producer is 3 thing's an Instrumentalist,Re-arranger,sound man. But Dub is not confined to reggae, you can do a Dub version of almost any type of music.

I would say that reggae dub making is a perpetual essay in minimalism ,try build up an organic ,breathing dubby track relying on a single bass line and a few drumloops or out of a basic roots riff you probably see what I mean

i think creating a dub tune is setting the single parts or instruments in a type of completely new landscape of sound, so they are not the same as before, just cause they have to prove themselves in the new neighborhood.so its just something old in a new soundscape.yo, stay irie.(let babylon burn)

I am very intrigued by the empty spaces of dub- its the emptiness in the middle that completes you- emptiness anchored by both soaring and deep objects on each side. I have just built a house and used my dub way of thinking in the architecture. wide open boundless spaces anchored by large soaring volumes- a feeling of air and space within. I listen to the pianist steve reich and I feel the same thing- grand, stand alone gestures, nothingness and bits of ethereal information filtering in and out. Sorry to go on- just a thought- im not sure if dub and architecture are usually thought of together.

Not to perpetuate a stereotype, but I'd have to agree with the ganjamann. Dub, to me, is the same as the herb. It lifts you up, and takes you to different places you've seen/heard/felt, and gives you a whole new perspective and feeling. I think that is why the herb and dub go so hand-in-hand. The monotonous is made new. The mundane made interesting.

The technical side of dub, while extremely intriguing, is really just the pipe, facilitating the groove and the enlightenment. Like the herb, the hardware can come in many fashions and styles exhibiting different functionalities.

To be formulaic about it goes against all that is DUB (to me). Sure we should embrace the old, but we should also strive for the new.

Creecree, your house sounds awesome. I think architecture and dub can go hand-in-hand. I often look at paintings and think that the artist was in a dub state of mind. Sure we use dub as a tool to categorize music on a shelf, but it is much more to the true fans/believers. Itís a tradition, a feeling and a way of life.

Peace,

Ted

King Lion:

Your post on the dub description is a beautiful piece! It touched me deep!

I am a newcomer to dub, I came from jungle/drum'n'bass/electronic music... I have been producing for many years, now I am learning dub techniques.

For me it is about creating a space between the sounds, creating an organic atmosphere, ever changing, predictable yet unpredictable.
With the continuous rhythm and bass like a beating heart.

Irie !
DUB: adding new perspectives to the old:
- Space: The Hihat very close to your ears (no reverb), some reverb on the rinshots (they come from far off), echo on the voice: between the mountains.
- Sensuality: the rise of high frequency level in the echoed portions of sound relates directly to that "inner voice" I & I encounter after a fine spliff.
- Structure: As the tracks are not sounding all through a piece of music, the different layers come out clearly: the Bass line being independent from the horns and the vocals. (So Dub is adding listening aspects by reducing in a way.)
This is what makes Dub so inspiring, fascinating, addicting.

mike zee:
i read your text that you wrote to jas
and you made me understandin my self a bit more.
i m very thankful for this
i m 17 years old and i live in paris
i never believed in any religions but i believe
in my own thinkings. i know not much of the rastafari culture
but when i read your text i saw that it is a religion which is not far to what i believe
you made me understand something i always felt but never understood. if you have some time i would be very glad if you could explain me a bit more this co-exsisting. i think it s to obey your "second voice" in your head. This voice, is this what u call The Low???? i have many questions to this subject.
i would be very happy if you awnser me.
PEACE

I and I.


HI ALL.Hallayjha.
I'm from Barcelona and love Dub.
I think is the music for any activity, and every feeling. For me , the intresting it's the description of the word dicttionary/ The refference to the middel Ages. Rastaman is a warrior to be a better man,his actions guied be the earth and in constance respect with all.

The existance of the religion is natural, in every land exists Good.

The dub is a free way to express yourself, playing music, Dj, or way not, dancing.And the words are a constant message to you.

Love and Respect for All.
Hallayjha.

I think u guys see some puzzles of the whole, cause u keep forgetting that mathematics and your mind is the philosofy not the Dub. That u can calculate a track to flow so psychadelic but so constant that people can be creative enough to paint or write some of the best shit they made. And u say that its a dream and all but the philosify is that u can calculate the exact move to make the human mind (even how boring the mind is) to fantasize and create beuty. This particular part is in all electronic music but dub is one of the best to do this to a person.
