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 big_smile

Also, I was working on a dubstep track for nothing sad

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.

sounds fun

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  smile


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)

Same.  Reggae dub plate specials.  smile

My 'dub' track is up for all to hear now. 


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.

Here is mine. I think I might have put too much echoes in that track. It used to be mellow but I guess I overworked it and now it's a bit messy:
