"Dub to me is the art of utilizing space and creating an atmosphere of exploration and transformation - a sonic journey into the unknown. " Dubmatix
In Dub celebrates 10 years of Dubmatix. Since the debut release of "Champion Sound Clash" in 2004, Dubmatix has released 6 “official” CD releases, many digital albums, EPs and remixes. In Dub returns to his roots and passion for Dub and all of it’s possibilities.
It includes a few tracks only available on a couple compilations several years back, but never officially included on a Dubmatix release. A couple were free downloads but have since been re-worked into fresh updated versions of their former selves and of coarse, many new tracks.
From heavy bass-driven stepper tunes such as Dub Steppa, Into Battle Dub to the equally heavy but roots dub focused Galactical Dub, Magnetic Dub, 007 Dub to the future or electro-sound of Circus Maximus Dub, 16 Stone Dub and Mad Massa Gana Dub – no matter your dub preference, each has been crafted to take you, the listener, on a journey of dub exploration.

This is dub and roots in the classic rockers tradition, with sultry melodies and praises to Jah almighty overriding a
crackling, bass-heavy groove. Maintaining close ties to the classic and legendary sounds heard in 70s roots and dub while incorporating new technologies and styles....more
