    Drawstringing back to the first post in this logbook.

    I was talking to my brother today about Dub music and he came up with a metaphor so awesome I have to post it for your consideration.

    He said you have to think about a Dub song being like an island. But not just a regular island, one more like an island of flotsam and jetsam that create a coherent whole. It's the ocean that supports this floating structure.

    In Dub this ocean is the bass, specifically subs.

    Rang like a bell when I heard this.

    thats a nice one, i like that

    i often think of a dub like a ghost, the phantom impression of the original cut

    i almost invariably like the dub version of a track better than the original, somehow it leaves more to the imagination, you get to fill in the blanks yourself...like a poem instead of prose

    Yeah nicely put...when I read the metaphor I flashed back.. remember my tutor at college telling me that when doing a mix on drums I should visualise the ocean and think about placing the individual kit parts in this visual..for example..Brass is sharp in sound..so they are placed on the surface of the water..trickling above..the deeper the sound the lower they are placed...even though drums were the subject I think its good practise for overall track mixing...getting a visual for sound placement within the mix... incorporating an island and identifying which sounds belong deep in the ocean..above and beyond.

    But yeah, Dub music for me is a venture in sound, an original is a one way road.. a specific journey, dubbing and remixing allows you to open up new directions within an original..gives you a choice to go either this way or that way..alternative ventures.

    Found a good 10 minute short 'Inside On-U Sound', interesting documentary and explores the digital age and the impact it has had on certain sectors of the music Industry.

    Hi people. I started listening to Reggae around the age of 13 and soon got into the b.sides more than the a.sides as they had guitar & pianio chords that went on & on with echo & reverb galore.Did that ever blow my developing musical brain. And the vocal that comes in and out is sublime IMHO. Soon lead on to discovering people like Lee Perry, General Saint & Clint Eastwood, Eek-A-Mouse, The Scientist etc. Back in the early 90's there was an English record company calle Guerilla Records that put out a lot of dubby dance stuff, worth investigating if you can find and & also a series of C.D's calle Club Vs Dub which had some classics on them. Mostly dance but some real leftfield (not the band lol) suff on them.
