Dub + Techno = Dub Techno

It´s not a big secret that without dub there would have been – amongst other things – no drum´n´bass, no remix culture and no techno music.

The last years saw the latter returning to production techniques of the first: the heavy usage of reverbs, echoes and phasers alongside four-on-the-floor beats even made a new sub-genre of techno, called dub techno, emerge.

The label pushing this sound the hardest probably is Thinner from Germany:

… select an available release from the extensive Thinner discography and there’s a very high probability that the sounds on that album can be broadly described as “dub-inspired” i.e. some permutation of a fusion of dub with house, techno, or even ambient music. it’s also quite possible that the album could be further redefined as belonging to the sound departments of either “dubby techhouse“ or “intelligent dub” …

One of Thinner´s artists is Das Kraftfuttermischwerk. Today, they posted a link to a dope mix from Foton which might serve you as convenient entrance to the world of dub techno if you´re relatively new to it like me or a “collection of classics” in case you´re already sucked in:

01. Basic Channel – Round Four
02. Chet – Urban Dharma
03. Maurizio – M5
04. Quantec – Hidden Persuasion
05. Basic Channel – Round Three w/ Paul st Hilaire
06. Fluxion – Inductance
07. Deadbeat – Abu Ghraib
08. Jorge Gebauhr – Strange Fruits

    last years, last years…Maurizio or Burial are already long time busy with that! & Universal Egg leading the whole techno-stepper genre in the last years of the previous century before them (a little too trancy-hippy for me, though). anyway, dont mind me too much, just passing by…

  • toastyle1210

    well I guess that depends on your definition of “last years” :)

  • RROB

    true but imo, when it comes to music, “last years” thats like 3 years maximum…
