Dexter Dub

Dexter Dub is a producer and remixer from Cologne, he is an active part of the Cologne music scene since more than twenty years.

In his youth he has learned the basics of playing different instruments and was playing in different bands. After the band period his interest shifted around 1996 to Hip-Hop and as a DJ or turntablist (DJ I.R.S. ONE) as well as a producer he was involved in different projects with MC's.

Around 2002 his musical interest changed again, he continued Djing but with a more multi-genre approach, playing through different genres as Big Beat, Lounge, Jungle, Drum'n'Bass, Reggae and Dub.

This brought him around 2006 into contact with new Reggae-Drum'n'Bass styles that followed the tradition of Jungle. He invented the aka Dexter Dub and became well known in Cologne for his sets combining Reggae vocals with Dubwize Drum'n'Bass and sometimes also with live Didgeridoo.

Around 2010 he was infected with the Dubstep-Virus, so he started producing Dubstep, mostly with a Reggae influence and played that genre as a DJ also with a focus on tracks that feature Jamaican or Patois-vocalists in general.

After a period of playing live with laptop and interface, Dexter Dub returned to his roots and now plays live again only with vinyl. Sometimes he includes either a lickshot, a dub siren or a sampler. He can integrate his own productions easily, by having them cut on a dubplate.

Since 1996 he has been digging, buyiing and playing through different styles, such as Dub, Dubstep, Jungle, Trap, Drum'n''Bass, Mash-Up, Hip Hop, Reggae, Dancehall, Big Beat, Electro, Soul, Funk, Disco, Beat, Jazz and World Music.

At the Nippes Home Productions studio he produces his own tracks, mixtapes/-CDs, versions, mash ups, tunes and remixes since 2001. For many of his tracks he has been producing his own videos, more about it at videos.
