Dub Champions Festival

After three years in the North East and two years in Europe, Subatomic Sound in conjunction with Dub Mission (S.F.), Dub Club (L.A.), and Dubspot presents the First Annual Dub Champions Festival on the West Coast. An international musical phenomenon, dub is a musical style characterized by heavy bass, drums, and copious use of effects, where the producer becomes the artist, with the mixing board as his or her instrument. The festival features performances and educational workshops to exhibit how the music is created and how it has evolved from its roots in ‘70s Jamaica to become a cornerstone of electronic bass music. Dub is a major inspiration to artists in many genres including rap, rock, punk and dance music. Dub Champions Festival was founded in New York City by Emch of Subatomic Sound System and is dedicated to featuring the world’s greatest dub pioneers from Jamaica as well as current innovators on every Continent. The festival happens in New York City, Washington DC, Philadelphia, Boston, Vienna, Amsterdam and now debuts in San Francisco and Los Angeles.
