ROIR has a storied tradition of releasing reggae & dub, with over 25 years of working with both established and unknown acts who have that unusual quality that springboards them to wider recognition. Essential Dub is a healthy sampling (taken from currently available ROIR releases) which showcases the diversity of the genre. Dub has been instrumental in shaping the current musical climate, helping to redefine the engineer/producer’s role in the process. Musicians as diverse as the Gorillaz, Massive Attack, Sublime, and No Doubt have been effected by Dub’s long reach as have heroes of yore: The Clash, Adrian Sherwood, The Slits, Brian Eno, & PIL to name only a handful. We bring you the future as well as the past-- heavy on the bass-- this should be felt by every sinew in your body. A perfect release for summer coinciding nicely with all the reggae tours & summer festivals.
