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.

Al Cisneros
Toward Nazareth
There’s something mysterious about this record: Cisneros’ effortlessness and his cool attitude on the one hand and the implied significance and his overall precision on the other hand cancel each other out. Trying to figure out Al Cisneros isn’t easy.
