King Dub was a character I created back at wmfowhenever I had a chance to grab some extra air time. I’d pitch shift my voice, add some delay, speak in a patois and sound like an interdimensional god from the realms of dub.
Atmosphere was important when I assumed the identity of King Dub. All the lights in the studio were turned off except for maybe a few lights muted with red and orange gel filters or a few candles. It was mandatory to have some incense burning, maybe some sage or sandalwood. Add some dub by the likes of The Orb, Meat Beat Manifesto, Yabby You or Ras Michael throbbing through the sub woofer and I was taken to far off lands.
The memory of those shows have been so strongly imprinted on me that whenever I hear some beautiful dub I’m instantly transported back to that studio. I hope that when you listen to this week’s dub edition of solipsistic NATION that I’ll find you in that studio with me.
