join the DUB MISSION list, send e-mail titled "DM LIST" to infoat
entering its 18th year, DUB
MISSION was started in 1996 as an alternative to the typical reggae night.
The idea was to present the more cutting-edge side of the music (i.e. all forms
of dub, progressive roots reggae and dancehall) that was heard much in Bay Area
clubs at the time. Luckily this period of time has also coincided with a great
resurgence of interest in dub music through onstage performances and re-issues.
Artists and DJs from all over the world and the U.S. have performed at DUB MISSION.
A partial list includes the U.K.’s Adrian Sherwood & the ON-U Sound System,
Mad Professor & the Ariwa Sound System, Zion Train, Overproof Sound System Prince
Fatty’s Sound System, Twilight Circus Dub Sound System (Holland) Florian Seyberth
of Boozoo Bajou (Germany), Dubblestandart (Austria), Pitch Black (New Zealand),
Yossi Fine of Ex-Centric Sound System (Israel), The Scientist, Nickodemus of Turntables
on the Hudson, Tino Corp with Jack Dangers &, Ben Stokes, dr Israel, Dubtribe
Sound System (special dub set) and many many others. We have also devoted
special nights to the music of various reggae greats including Bob Marley, Lee
Perry, King Tubby, and Prince Far I. We look forward to another year of riddims
and laughter, with many more great shows to come.
