From New York City to Vienna! DUB CHAMPIONS FESTIVAL reaches Europe for the first time this week Feb. 5-7, 2013. Festival founder Subatomic Sound (NYC) teams up with Vienna's Dubblestandart, BunFireSquad, & RAW to present live performances, educational workshops, and a glimpse into the creation of dub music, that peculiar offshoot of reggae born in Kingston recording studios during the 1970s when producers King Tubby, Lee Scratch Perry, Clive Chin & others turned up the bass, drums, echo, and reverb, creating a rhythm driven sound that would influence a breadth of musical genres from punk rock to hip hop to electronic dance music for decades to come, and in the process forever redefine the role of music producers as artists, something that today is taken for granted.
DUB CHAMPIONS FESTIVAL in Vienna continues our mission, supporting the culture & shining the light on the past and future dub and bass music innovators: Lee "Scratch" Perry, Adrian Sherwood, Dubblestandart, Jahtari's Disrupt, Subatomic Sound System, Stereotyp, and more. Check our Facebook page , Twitter, or UStream video feed to follow the latest developments.
