Confessions in Dub, by Jerome Arthur

Confessions in Dub

In the early seventies, reggae artists starting putting out instrumental and heavily processed song versions on the B sides of their singles. Extensive use of reverb and delay with an emphasis on a melodic bassline created a laid-back, ambient form of reggae. This became known as dub. Confessions in Dub is a collection of very laid-back, electronic dub drops.
