I'm going to make a song using samples from my drill and call it it Drillex
What the hell is industrial dub, I need to hear that!
Dubstep was originally a genre of industrial that focussed more on droning/pulsing basslines. A more fair review would be to say it was a new direction of older EBM styles, which most consider to be industrial.
Being an avid fan of "pure", or original, industrial and newer forms, I find it extremely amusing when you recognize the influence it has had on most current electronic music. In fact, I find it difficult to not love most electronic music, despite how different it sounds compared to the old days of Kraftwerk and SPK/Throbbing Gristle.
I really didn't know people got confused at this distinction .. or used the terms interchangeably??? Really?
also early dubstep was more 2step / garage influenced than industrial in my opinion (being born out of Bristol / triphop and the like) but the crossovers are clearly visible and I guess you might be able to call people like Scorn industrial?
As a person that doesnt listen to that much reggae I didnt know there was a difference until you mentioned. I thought Dub was short for dubstep. If it isnt electronic in nature, or big band music, I wont recognize any sub genres.
So I guess I look really stupid LOL
Also, I was working on a dubstep track for nothing

I think it is good to refer to the playlist provided in Lazerbeat's post (courtesy of Minikomi) as it features very typical dub tracks:
Also good to listen to because king tubby is awesome
oh crap, I forgot to do the dub track! fuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuh... and yeah, king tubby is awesome.
Well, I don't know if it is dub exactly but I did a slow minimal track with lots of bass, heavy drums and I hope it is dub....
My track is dub inspired for this week. Not 'typical dub' though sorry. I prefer to be inspired by as opposed to emulating
lol - I thought week 11 was next week. Oh well. As far as distinction of dub, I always grew up with it being the instrumental versions of deep regge tracks. My King Tubby LP's and a number of my Impact / Groove Music 45s clearly state the "dub" versions of the tunes on their B sides.
This, to me, is dub: http://syntaxparty.org/rockit8bit/broke vitive.mp3 (it was my high school listening)
My Dub inspired Voodoo Curse
As for my dub prefrances, Creation Rebel & Scientist pretty much hit it on the head for me - DeFacto is realy good as well though.
