Sumac Dub – Jam Session #8

In recent years around the world in dub nuff sound with looping station start the song from scratch sometimes using beatboxing or instruments or sampling and go into the mix.
By definition, dub is a psycho-acoustic manipulation of source sound material. Material that is somewhat familiar to the listener, like many reggae riddim versions so that one is caught by surprise in change of the sound. This gave birth to remixing, sampling, and other styles of sound culture ecological recycling. But future dub warriors sometimes do not dub from master tape, cassette tape, DAT, or USB, but create sounds from the scratch and go into the mix.

Here Sumac Dub throws in turntable sounds to accompany ambience of birds and synths until full blown riddim mix emerges.
Follow trough as jam session goes from slow live playing, looping and scratching, to ruff and dub mixing.
Well Kids and Elders, is that DUB nuff?

ON THE RADICAL SPIRIT OF CHRISTMAS

The Situationists were a loose movement founded in the late 1950s by a group of Western European artists, theorists and political radicals. The group rejected orthodox leftwing politics and political activities in favour of direct intervention into the symbolic order of advanced capitalism and rejected concepts such as individual authorship and copyright. One of their best known tactics was that of the détournement, which involved turning the logic of capitalism against itself in manners that illustrated its inadequacies. This approach manifested itself in various ways, such as re-utilising and/or altering public images by graffiti or staging disruptive performances in public spaces without announcement or explanation.

In the case of Britain, one of the best know examples of the latter approach took place at Harrods, London’s celebrated upmarket department store, in December 1967. A group of radical students dressed up in Father Christmas outfits and went into the toy department and started giving toys away to children as presents (thereby embodying the rhetorical ‘spirit of Christmas’). Their action prompted security staff to intervene, scuffling with the Santas as they attempted to stop and detain them, causing stress and consternation amongst the parents and children present.
