Dub-obsessed ghosts in the machine, Basic Channel's Mark Ernestus and Moritz von Oswald not only merge the spacetimes of dancehall and minimal techno under the moniker Rhythm & Sound, but even created their own one-riddim-album with 2005's See Mi Yah.

Chilean DJ Ricardo Villalobos's remix of “Let We Go” sounds like Steve Reich running a taser up your spine, proving the spirit of dub to be very much alive.
