  • Industrial dub?

    I quite like weird little microgenres, things that don't quite exist as defined scenes and categories. They often make fun leaping off points for investigation. The made-up genre in the thread title strikes me as one such - a lot of industrial music strikes me as very bloody white but there's the occasional gem out there that I've heard, and I must be missing loads more. I like the combination of fat reggae-derived bassline and clanking metal.

    In my imaginary plalist which may well turn into a mix I have so far: This Heat, lots and lots of On U sound stuff, "Asbestos Lead Asbestos", maybe some Meat Beat Manifesto, perhaps TG's "Heathen Earth". I'm interested in shaking the collective VG+ brain tree and seeing what falls to the floor. For mix-thematic purposes I'm more interested in UK stuff, but I'm open to anything really. What do you reckon fits?

          The recently re-formed EP-4 might be just the ticket.

            Maybe Cabaret Voltaire? They have some 'dub' mixes out there (at least one Sherwood produced one) but they aren't that dubby really. Maybe:

              Yeah, just been recording a new mix and we put (part of - the whole thing is about twelve minutes long) Cabaret Voltaire's Taxi Music Dub from the Johnny Yesno soundtrack on it. It is kind of dubby and kind of ebm-ey and it mixed well into some much harder (and whiter) ebm from the early eighties.

                Thanks for all the recommendations fellas. I've ended up picking up quite a few Cabs LPs lately, I'd include them for consideration for sure. Keith Leblanc and Mark Stewarrt I am totally down with - the first couple of Mark Stewart LPs are completely what I'm talking about (picked up the first Pop Group record recently and that's brilliant, also).

                Didn't know about Ice or about EP-4 so will be checking now.

                  Like that Cabs piece - that's a kind of rave/chillout side of them I've not heard before. Cheers Pitch.

                  For clarification (for myself as much as anyone else) - the stuff I'm thinking about doesn't have to sound like reggae. I'm just thinking thumping basslines and stuff not dominated by rocking out on guitars. Curious to see if there's any weird little dub B sides, obscure private press singles etc. that occur to people.

                    No doubt you've thought about 23 Skidoo's Seven Songs LP/EP - very much a mix of all of the elements you mention

                      Got that one but had cleverly forgotten about it until you mentioned it! So thank you!

                        Maybe borderline case but Killing Jokes debut 12" has very obvious dub influences, especially this track:

                        "Only one thought left, that makes me come alive,
                        and that is you and me side by side, on the licorice ride"

                          Hyperdub fly a fairly decent flag for off kilter ghostly Dub stuff that also takes influences from Industrial/Rave/Electronic/just plain odd, Kode 9, King Midas Sound (Dub versions) and many more
                          some good stuff there...

                            Ace thread. I've been wondering about this. Prompted by "Echo Dek" (the Adrian Sherwood dub of that Primal Scream album) and "Dub Driving" from the "Lost Highway" soundtrack (which I saw mentioned here in the first place).

                              Good call on Hyperdub. I've been thinking about doing a mix and ending up on some stuff like King Midas Sound. Kevin Martin is a total hero in my book - new LP is out now and streaming here.

                              I don't think it's quite as good as "London Zoo" but still pretty tough...
