Veal shows us his dub credentials by going into detail about Jamaican music. But instead of the more familiar reggae legends about impoverished young ghetto singers and gun-toting producers, Veal's emphasis here is on recording studios, audio equipment, and the engineers themselves. This is a mind blowing piece of work by Michael Veal. He argues that it is not overstating the case that this music has changed the way the world conceives of the popular song.

Dub is a sub-genre of Jamaican reggae that flourished during reggae’s golden age of the late 1960s through the early 1980s. Dub involves remixing existing cally improvising sound effects and altering vocal tracks-to create its unique sound. Just as hip-hop turned phonograph turntables into musical instruments, dub turned the mixing and sound processing technologies of the recording studio into instruments of composition and real-time improvisation

16 This music, in contrast, drew attention to itself as a recording in a peculiar way. These Jamaican singers did dub 6, not always conform to the chord changes of a song, and sometimes even sang in a different key altogether than the musicians. Vocalists didnt even always sing; many times they casually rapped over the rhythm tracks as if they were carrying on a conversation in spite of the music underneath.

Michael Veal's Dub is an informative and welcome contribution to the reggae literature, to studies of Caribbean, Afrodiasporic, and (Afro-)American music and culture more generally, and to the growing field of writings concerned with recording technologies and the social as well as musical dynamics of recording studios (Meintjes 2003, Katz 2004, Green and Porcello 2005). Accordingly, Veal situates dub in deep, rich context, explaining its significance for Jamaican society and Jamaican music and making a strong (if familiar) argument for dub's impact on music production the world over, in popular and experimental spheres alike.

If reggae is Africa in the New World, then dub must be Africa on the moon; it's the psychedelic music I expected to hear in the ‘60s and didn’t. The bass and drums conjure up a dark, vast space, a musical portrait of outer space, with sounds suspended like glowing planets or the fragments of instruments careening by, leaving trails like comets and meteors.
