Musical innovations are often a streak of good luck. What would today’s sessions sound like without Dub versions? These instrumental versions were invented by King Tubby, it all started when the vinyl for “On the Beach” by the Paragons was unintentionally pressed without vocals. That one mistake paved the way to more than 50 years of musical experiments.
At O.B.F – Dubquake Records we don’t forget our roots. Since you can’t get your scoops shaking, we decided to provide you with the tunes to rattle your socially distanced house parties. Get ready to hear dub versions of some of the best tunes on O.B.F’s second album “Signz”.
