The Dub Session is meditative groove music, and the podcast shows represent a series of thematic
excursions into Versions - downtempo, drum and bass, chill out, rare grooves, B-Sides, reggae
versions, funk, acid jazz, trip-hop, gogo, afrobeat, and journeys into ambient groove. This is the
heart and soul of Dub music - Versions. 

Dub Version music isn't just an art form, it is also a science. 

Dub Innovators constantly reset the standards for dub music and challenge new artists and DJs to
break the code and produce new forms of dub. Dub Masters call their studios laboratories, and carry
names like The Scientist, The Mad Professor, BushChemist, Dubtronic Science, the Vienna Scientists. 

The Dub Session welcomes you to experience evolutionary dub, rare grooves, roots music,
acid jazz, and versions from 1965 to 2008 by DJ Chill Will.

Episode #50 King Kong Sound Clash!



F

  King Kong Sound Clash!

Dub Session brings you a showdown of King Kong size proportions. In this corner, we have a dub rework of the Gorillaz' prime cuts. This remix by the SpaceMonkeyz brings forward one of the best fusions of dub, trip hop, cliq-hop, and pop rock since Sly & Robbie took residence at the Compass Point Studios to re-work pop, funk, rock, disco, punk and reggae classics of Island Records superstars in the early 1980s. It doesn't hurt that the mastermind behind these sessions is Darren Galea (Jamiroquai DJ), along with Ritchie Stevens (a much sought after producer and dub re-mixer and also teaches a dub class at the London Centre of Contemporary music).  Add the original crew from the Gorillaz Dan The Automator on deck, the lead singer from Blur on vocals and guitar, and members of Cibbo Matto with the cool shoe shine and you have some fresh tracks ready to retread Spacemonkeyz stylee.

In the opposing corner we have selections from the King Size Dub Series, volumes one through twelve. This collection of King Size Dubs comes from Nicolai Beverungen, a long time producer at the U-Sound dub studios in England. This King Size series provides a sampling of some of the best modern reggae and electronica dubs being put out on the market. Get these two sound entities together in a king-size thematic ring and you have the Dub Session episode King Kong Dub Showdown. Monkey see, monkey do. Funky too.


This episode includes selections from Spacemonkeyz vs Gorillaz at www.gorillaz.com, King Size Dub Volumes 1-11 at Amazon, and sounds from Planet of the Apes, Jay & Silent Bob Strike Back
B.U.D.S. is from the "Best of The Dub Session" series

Dub Session Episodes 48 & 49: The Soma Sessions


 Soma Sessions Vol 1
 Soma Sessions Vol 2

What do root canals, spinal injuries, and nagging bitchy girlfriends have in common?

They are all intolerably painful, exceedingly difficult to manage; they show no mercy; and each can make you cry if you make a wrong move.

This episode finds resident DJ ChillWill spinning and slipping discs, and riding the Soma train until heading to the orthopedic chop shop later this month. For DS episodes 48 and 49, we invite you to put a glide in your stride, a dip in your hip, and get on the mother ship for the Soma Dub Sessions. 

One of the greatest qualities of reggae music is its ability to deliver messages of despair, pain, grief, injustice, and alienation (as well as messages of hope, love, vision, gratitude, unity, appreciation) over an enjoyable, uplifting melodic structure and downtempo drum and bass grooves. Reggae can often serve as a healing music, delivering soothing rhythms and a meditative, chilled-out, introspective, calming experience. No other music is as universally loved on rainy days as well as sunny days for its effortless ability to enhance the joys and blues of the human experience, and to elevate the spirits of the listener.
   
"One good thing about music - when it hits you feel no pain."

Episode 43:  Special Anniversary Episode


  Sound Clash! Mad Scientists vs. Mix Masters

For Episode 43, Dub Session celebrates the common love of remixes and versions by dub producers and mix masters alike. Many classic dub songs like "Under mi Sleng Teng" or rap songs like "Roxanne" are famed by multiple versions.  Versions take many different genre-busting transmutations such as pioneer Adrian Sherwood's remix of "Stop This Crazy Thing" by ColdCut and Jr Reid (Black Uhuru); or Roni Size taking dub reggae from 33 rpm to 78 rpm on jungle turbo-mode; Chris Blackwell's marriage of rap and Washington, DC drum-heavy GoGo with Kurtis Blow vs Trouble Funk in "I'm Chillin!" ; The International Observer giving "London" the dub house treatment; Kieser and Velten transforming the trip-hopping "Lamb's Bread" into a dubbed out remix; we're treated to a Rhythmic American Poetry (RAP) version of Bob Marley's "Roots Rock Reggae"; and to finish the show, Edith Bunker asks the timeless question: How Cold Can Cold Cuts get?   N ' ice-ness!

The Mad Scientists
We believe dub music isn't just an art form, it is also a science.  Some of the most elementary figures in dub call their studios laboratories, and carry names like The Scientist, The Mad Professor, BushChemist, Dubtronic Science, the Vienna Scientists. Other renowned Mad Scientists include King Tubby, Sly and Robbie, U-Sound's Adrian Sherwood, Mikey Dread, Aswad, Salmonella Dub, The Overproof Sound System, and Black Uhuru.

Versus the Mix Masters
Mad Scientists are also known as "Mix Masters" in the hip-hop and electronic/breakbeat communities.  These Mix Masters are deadly and dangerous versionistas with mad skillz in remixing breakbeat, jungle, reggae, rock, electro, and bossa nova and mashing up innovative experiments into new musical territory.  Notable Mix Masters include ColdCut/NinjaTune, RoniSize, Stereo Deluxe, Kruder & Dorfmeister, Dhizan & Kamien, The Thievery Corporation, Fila Brasilia, Boozoo Bajou, Tosca, and of course the inimitable Lee "Scratch" Perry.

Do you like Scr-Scr-Scratching? Dub Session 43 summons you into the dub chamber to scratch that itch in our special one year Anniversary episode.

Episode 40:  Funky Kingston



  Funky Kingston

For episode 40, the Dub Session takes a version excursion to "Funky" Kingston

It's the early 70's. Kingston, Jamaica is abuzz with funky reggae sounds, new electronic wah-wah guitar pedals, moog keyboard synthesizers, and tons of funk-dafied reggae experimentation from King Tubby, Lee Perry, Bob Marley, Big Youth, The Skatalites, and the Pioneers.

This episode takes a trip to Kingston's early 1970s funky reggae era, with some great reggae covers and versions of funk tunes. In addition, we have lots of home-grown Kingston hits, and a few U.S funksters like the Meters and the Ohio Players crossing over to provide funky reggae-ska-soul-funk versions.  Episode 40 kicks off with "Some Good Old Funky Music" from the Meters, and then hits us from the top like a "Crazy MotherFunky" featuring two duos with Bob Marley and Lee Perry - "Caution" and "Shocks Amighty."  

The Funky Reggae era lasted in Kingston from 1968 until 1974. During this time, King Tubby and Lee Perry were the primary producers of funk and reggae crossover music.  In 1973 Bob Marley & The Wailer's first Island records album "Catch a Fire"  introduced reggae to a broader, global audience.  After 1973, fans outside of Jamaica began their love affair with reggae, creating a new rush of interest and many new artists on Kingston scene. By 1975, "Funky Reggae" had given way to a new trend, the Rockers era (see Dub Session episode 28), heralding roots reggae artists and the new superstar - DJ vocalists and toasters.

Episode #34 Vienna Dub Masters

  Vienna Dub Masters

Dub Session's Global Reggae Showcase Series continues with its third installment:

Austrian Reggae: The Vienna Dub Masters

Since the mid 1990s, Vienna Austria has become a major hub for innovation, experimentation and production of dubtronic-style reggae.  The Vienna sound is a distinct blend of drum and bass, acid jazz, electronic downtempo, and reggae music taking cues from the production techniques of King Tubby, Lee Perry, The Mad Professor and ColdCut. The defining characteristic of the Vienna sound is the confluence of electronic dance music and reggae dub-style production - yielded a unique "Vienna Scientists" style. This innovative mixing and blending of styles has introduced legions of new dance music fans to dub reggae; helped to popularize and revitalize the dub and reggae music industry; and has launched many new crossover reggae/dub/electronica artists.

Many of the key figures in the Vienna dub scene can be found on the resident G-Stone label run by the legendary dub-electronica production team Kruder & Dorfmeister. There is also the famous weekly live event the "Dub Club" run by DJs, toasters, producers and bedroom rockers alike.  This showcase of Vienna's key Dub Masters includes: Tosca, Dhizan & Kamien, Dr. Richard (Dorfmeister), The Peace Orchestra (Kruder), DJ DSL, Rockers Hi-Fi, Stereotyp, Walkner, Sofa Surfers, Markus Kienzl, Rodney Hunter, Megablast and The Vienna Scientists collective, as well as "Toasters" Farda P, Sugar B, and Tikimon to name a few. This week, the Dub Session heads to Central Europe to showcase the dub-tronic sounds of Vienna, Austria.  Niceness!!

Episode 28: Rockers! Special
 


 

  #28 - Rockers! Special

This week the Dub Session celebrates the 30th year anniversary of the production of the movie "Rockers!" In 1976, the movie was produced and released in 1977. 

At the time the movie was released, the Rockers were a group of musicians, DJs, producers and Toasters in Jamaica who were expanding the boundaries of music production and innovation.   Often, a hit song would be released on an "A" side like Dennis Brown's "Revolution" or Jacob Miller's "Pamela", or the infamous "Under Mi Sleng Ting" ryddym. 

Typically, records were released as singles, and on the A side was a vocal version of a popular song, and on the B side was a "dub" version.  These popular songs were played in the clubs, or Dancehalls in Jamaica, and then the B sides were played. These B-sides, or dub versions, became templates for reggae-rappers known in Jamaica as "DJs" or "Toasters" to show off their craft.   This was the time for Toasters and DJs to shine and show off their stuff.  These DJs were Big Youth, I-Roy, U-Roy, U-Brown, Dillinger, Al Capone etc to name a few. 

The "Rockers" movement in Jamaica from 1972 to 1979 provided the genesis of modern hip hop music production and toasting/rapping, from Kingstown to Brooklyn, Brixton and beyond. In the same way that King Tubby and The Scientist became famous for re-producing hit songs into dub classics like "King Tubby Meets The Rockers Uptown", their counterparts Africa Bambaataa and Grand Master Flash in the later 1970s were mixing up the birth of hip hop with their production wizardry and dubplates for rap artists.

Jamaican star DJs and Toasters inspired the birth of the rap movement in Brooklyn in the late 1970s where disco hits' B-sides were played, and rappers from different "crews" would battle for style points and popularity just like their Jamaican cousins did at the Dance Halls in Kingston and Negril. So, this week we celebrate the Rockers and put together a showcase of classic Rockers artists, albums and some new-steppers and Rockers from New Zealand, the UK, Jamaica and Austria. 


Episode 27: Catch a Fire
 


 

  #27 - Catch a Fire

For Episode 27, the Dub Session aims to "Catch A Fire" and plays songs related to this theme.  So whether you wish to Catch a Fire as an ital correction, a Nyabinghi meditation, or via cupid's arrow, this station brings you the healing of the nation, with version.

This week the Dub Session brings you a special blend of dub classics, Reggae music, progressive dub and some fresh music from John Brown's Body, The Bad Brains, and Jem.  Some people have asked - how do you properly pronounce the name of your podcast? It sounds Cajun, like "on-yon" or "cay-jun." Sounds like "Sean." Hence the pronunciation "Dub - Ses - Sean"  For inspiration, we bring you a special appearance by the Tuna Pilot kids on the last track with "Yahoo Unky Will."  Playlist
