Sound Liberation Frontand New York-based record label Subatomic Sound are teaming up to present Dub Invasion Festival, a 10-day long excursion into the international musical phenomenon called dub. From its roots in 1960's Kingston reggae studios to its evolution into the digital age, dub helped give birth to modern remix culture and its influence and production techniques can be heard across countless genres, from hip-hop, electronica, to punk and rock. The festival will take place in New York and Boston from September 8-16 and will include shows by world-class performers, including Lee "Scratch" Perry, Mad Professor, Adrian Sherwood, Brother Culture, Twilight Circus Dub, and many others. There will also be music workshops, documentary screenings and more.
Event partners include Dubspot, Wax Poetics, Brooklyn Radio, Turntables on the Hudson, Liondub International, Deep Space, Deadly Dragon, Universal Sundays and Restless Native. For Schedule and Info, visit www.DubInvasion.net
