RAS Portraits - DUB   RAS 89905

Produced by: DUB

Recorded by: DUB
Mixed by: DUB

Released: July 22. 2003


RAS Records has blasted the doors wide open to bring to you RAS Dub Portraits, featuring 12 dubbed-out tracks reinvented by Dr. Dubenstein to take you on a tantalizing dub adventure. The journey starts with the lush foundation of the original tracks, and ends in a vast aural landscape of crashing snares and chest-crushing bass.

Today the word DUB is used to describe a genre of music consisting primarily of instrumental remixes of existing recordings. Through the use of sound effects, the recording is radically reshaped and manipulated, resulting in a remixed version where audio effects and studio “trickery” are an integral part of the music.

RAS Portraits “Dub” presents songs from such artists as Black Uhuru, Israel Vibration, Yellowman and many more. With mixes from great engineers like Lee “Scratch” Perry, Scientist, Mad Professor and Jim Fox, you’ll be able to sample a wide variety of the many styles of dub.

                   WARNING: This disc will give your stereo system an amazing test!
