Lofi Dub Reggae feat. Ranking Joe

from Splice Originals

Much like its people, music from the Caribbean is always moving. Always being experimented and iterated on, always morphing into the next thing that’s going to pave a path for Western pop genres to follow. Dub is no different. The subgenre grew out of reggae music in 1960s Jamaica, pioneered by King Tubby, Ruddock, Lee Scratch Perry, and Errol Thompson.

Dub was one of the earliest forms of electronic music. The style consists of partial or complete instrumental remixes of existing recordings achieved by manipulating and reshaping them. This is typically done through the removal of some or all vocals, adding emphasis on the rhythm section (the stripped-down drum-and-bass track is sometimes referred to as a riddim), the application of studio effects such as echo and reverb, and the occasional dubbing of vocal or instrumental snippets from the original version or other works.

Each layer of this pack was meticulously performed and recorded to create a whole vibe. Once we had bass grooves in place layered with keys and guitars, Ranking Joe joined the studio to lay down his vocals. Then we added more instruments including horn arrangements. Every single audio file was processed in some way through the Roland Space Echo, which is an essential part of the dub sound. Our goal was to transport those who visit these sounds back to the legendary Studio One days. The result is a deep-dive study of the classic dub sound.
