Dub (Music subgenre)
Dub is a gerne of music which grew out of reggae music in the 1960s and 1970s. Music in this genre consists predominantly of instrumental remixes of existing recordings and is achieved by manipulating and reshaping the recordings, usually by removing the vocals from an existing music piece and emphasizing the drum and bass parts. The term is also used for this certain technique, that is also used in electronic dance music.

Warm vibrations with universal attraction
The American vibraphonist, singer, songwriter and arranger Roy Ayers is one of the most sampled contemporary musicians. With songs like »Everybody Loves The Sunshine«, the soul jazz legend, which celebrates it’s 80th birthday in September, became the main inspiration for Acid Jazz in the late 90s. His new album “Roy Ayers JID 002” on Jazz Is Dead with Adrian Younge and ex-ATCQ producer Ali Shaheed Muhammad continues his golden period of the Polydor years in the 70s seamlessly.
