    Question 1:

    Sometimes on tracklists for the mixes here, i see "DUB" as the label, as opposed to Ram, Hospital, etc? What does that mean?

    Question 2:

    Does anyone know when/where i can get these tracks on vinyl?

    Calibre - TV On
    Marcus Intalex - Astro Dance
    St. Files - Moods
    Upbeats - Girl Gone
    Klute - Halloween (?)
    Break - Surroundings

    The word Dub came from teh Reggae sceen, in the 50's and 60's they were known as aceteates, but started to be known as black wax and then dubs on the reggae scene..it basically means you might be looking at a long wait to get a copy yourself

    The 30+ crew kicks idiot, not noob ass. Being a noob is not a choice.

    2) Get to know the producer/record label and they might give/sell you a copy. Otherwise you ain't gonna see it for months/ever. That's just the way it works...

    yeah that is right but..dont get confused as a dub version of a tune can mean that its a version without vocals.....
