Dub techno... I'm glad it's seeing more and more limited releases on the likes of cassette and vinyl. Andrea Porcu's ROHS! is a label I like to believe I've written up a couple of times - I've written up a lot of albums/EPs and I'm old, so my memory's bound to be rough. Now, there is a reason this is just called Dub Affairs and not Dub Techno Affairs - some of these are borderline straight dub reggae which isn't bad at all. Zzzzra, Biodub, Xoki, Subset and to an extent Desove stick to dub techno while Hieronymus, Hemisphere Dub and Upwellings* veer towards the roots of where the genre hails from. If by chance you've never read/listened to anything I've written up before, you should know I'm a huge dub techno fan - there's dozens of us. Dub techno takes synthesized dub chords (usually minor chords) and puts them with (usually) four-to-the-floor pulsing drum beats. Something that doesn't look good on paper, but is executed better than you can imagine. Listen to Dub Affairs Vol. 1 via the Bandcamp player below and see what you think of it. Cheers!
