Dub Echoes

This looks like a really great documentary that shows how dub influences much of the music we hear today, from electronic music to hip hop.
The film features all the big players from reggae and electronica, including Lee Scratch Perry, Don Letts, Aba Shanti-I, Basement Jaxx, Bunny Lee, Dennis Bovell, David Katz, Mad Professor, Mutabaruka, Roots Manuva, Sly & Robbie and U-Roy, talk about the birth of dub, how it helped to change the way we perceive music and how its presence is still felt today.
Keep an eye half-cocked on your local arthouse cinema to see if it's coming.
