Dubtransmissions is a Digbeth-based record label specialising in New Age Dub.
Dubtransmissions is about people who are not scared to listen to new music. We embrace evolution and creativity. Our artists are interested in drawing from classic influences such as Lee â€œScratchâ€, Pink Floyd, Miles Davis, Bob Marley, Abbey Lincoln and Kreftwerk and producing modern fresh music. We are interested in the continuing evolution of dub. That is why you will hear dirty bass lines, unusual samples, and quality composition. Our artists record and perform with emotion and passion. They have no lyrical restriction they write what they feel.
Dubtransmissions produce music of elements, which like Reggae, allows more of a diversity of listeners, because like reggae, it evolved from Jamaica to the music of Blue Beat, Rock Steady and Ska. Which has also influenced Breakbeat and Drum n Bass.
The sound of Dubtransmissions is at home on the dance floor.
