In this video recap from the Dub & Bass Master Class, Dub Champions Festival founder and Dubspot instructor, Emch of Subatomic Sound System talks to Sherwood & Pinch about their early years, how their collaborative project as Sherwood & Pinch came about, their individual creative process and production workflow, the evolution of bass music, and contrast between early UK dubstep, and the popularized US version of the music.

After the interview, Sherwood & Pinch offer an impromptu live performance of a new riddim. They demonstrate the art of dub using a traditional mixing board setup, as well as modern computer technology including Ableton Live and Akai APC40.
