www.DubChampions.com Dub Champions Festival is a journey into the international musical phenomenon called “dub.” Characterized by heavy bass, drums, and the copious use of effects, producers become the artists and the mixing board becomes an instrument with this Jamaican art form. The festival features both performances & educational workshops to exhibit how the music is created and has evolved from its 1970s, reggae roots to become a cornerstone of electronic bass music. Dub has also inspired countless genres from rap to rock to punk to dance music, and in the process has redefined the role of producer as artist. Here are recaps of festival workshops in conjunction with Dubspot featuring Mad Professor, Adrian Sherwood, Lee Scratch Perry, Pinch, and Subatomic Sound System.
