Born out of Jamaican musical culture, and formed in the nexus between studio and dancehall, dub has influenced modern dance music in all its forms. Dub originated in the 1960s, when King Tubby began mixing dubs and adding delay and reverb effects. This set in motion a formula that would last through the 1970s and beyond. The Rough Guide To Dub portrays the original impetus of the form, as developed by the original dubmaster King Tubby during the genre's first Golden Age, and features essential mixes from his contemporaries Errol 'ET' Thompson, Yabby You and Lee Perry.
