Twilight Circus Dub Sound System

Dub Voyage

M

Other than extraordinary efforts from Sly and Robbie/Howie B, and other electronic producers incorporating the dub sound into their work, it seemed to me like there hasn’t been a whole lot of original dub to listen to, especially with more of a roots feel to it… until I heard Twilight Circus.

Twilight Circus Dub Sound System is Ryan Moore, bassist for both the Legendary Pink Dots and Tear Garden. Rest assured though, the sound of both bands has nothing to do with the sound heard here. Moore’s take on dub is extraordinarily spacey, bass heavy, and atmospheric, yet he avoids electronic tools normally used in creating neo-dub, opting instead for real drums, and bass lines. The sound heard here retains its roots in the original sound that King Tubby, Lee “Scratch” Perry, Augustus Pablo and Mad Professor helped pioneer, but progresses it on to another level.
