A Short Trip Into The Dub Techno Realms

There’s something unexplainable attractive when it comes to the eerie dusty atmosphere created around us every time we listen to dub techno.   With thick basslines originated in the dub culture, resonating with our root chakra frequency and melancholic chords echoing through the techno structure, the dub techno sound is the creation of Moritz Von Oswald and Mark Ernestus, forming Basic Channel somewhere in the early 90’s.

Chain Reaction, their own label, proposed artists like Monolake, Vladislav Delay or Fluxion and at the same time Moritz and Mark maintained the essential contact with the jamaican dub roots through the Rhythm & Sound project.

Fast forward to the 21st century: dub techno kept its undeground framework, creating communities around its murky tones and evolving slowly into a hybrid of dub, ambient and experimental, at the same time reminding us that techno is here to stay.

We handpicked some of our favourite dub techno records, still available at Misbits Record Shop. Click on the title of each release to go directly to the shop’s page. Enjoy! 🙂
