Track Deconstructions

Track Deconstruction: A Dub Seminar

Dub music and the techniques associated with it can be considered one of the foundation stones of contemporary music production, and in many styles of modern electronic music. The architects of dub: King Tubby, Lee Perry and others, took a truly revolutionary approach, treating the studio as an instrument.

Few people can lay claim to the pedigree of dub’s founders better than Hopeton Brown AKA Scientist. Having learned the craft working under the master himself King Tubby, he went on to work at Channel One and to create some of the defining dub records of the ‘80s. Bringing these decades of experience to bear, Scientist, will walk us through the evolution of his studio practice and the tools and techniques he’s developed to bring dub mixing firmly into the twenty first century.
In the intimate setting of EastWest Studio 1, participants are encouraged to ask questions, and steer the conversation towards insight that you can apply to your own technical and creative practice.
