Dub Echoes is a film about Dub which features an incredible array of artists, both original Jamaican artists such as U-Roy, King Jammy, Lee Perry, Sly Dunbar, Bunny Lee (to name just a few), alongside a similarly awe-inspiring array of artists who have taken Dub into new directions in electronic dance music including Kode9, Roots Manuva, Howie B, Adrian Sherwood and many others. Filmed over a three-year period, this killer piece of documentation covers Dub in all its different guises. Forward the Bass!
Soul Jazz Records has also released the album Dub Echoes – Sonic Excursions in Dub and Beyond: Jamaican Kings Meet Electronic Futurists in Dub Worldwide to coincide with the film. The set features a mix of both legendary and current artists and producers connected to Dub.
A lightning journey through Dub featuring Jamaican originators such as King Tubby, Lee Perry, Prince Jammy and Bunny Lee, alongside electronic futurists and Dubstep artists such as Kode9, Harmonic 313 (Warp) and LV (Hyperdub), as well as hip-hop pioneer Roots Manuva and original junglist Congo Natty. Musical worlds collide as Francois Kervorkian meets Jamaican DJ legend U-Roy, and German techno giants Rhythm & Sound meet Cornell Campbell.
This album is a celebration of all things Dub, featuring rare classics alongside new tracks from the pioneers and futurists of this electronic musical form.
