Royalty free Dub MusicDub music is an offspring of reggae developed in Jamaica in the 1960’s. Dubbing literally means making a copy of one recording to another. In this case the dub producers took existing songs, stripped off the vocals, emphasized bass and drum parts, and went from there, reshaping the song electronically to suit their vision.

Royalty-free dub music shows up in dance club tracks and vibes all over the Smartsound world, from Chill to Trance to Electronica, and fills the need wherever you want viewers to tune in to their rhythm and give their busy brains a mini-vacation.

Nu Skool Royalty Free MusicLike dub music, Hip Hop developed first as a purely instrumental offshoot of African-American music, in the 1970’s. Part of its origin was block parties in the Bronx area of New York City, where DJ’s started isolating the percussion breaks of popular funk and soul music songs.

Vocals in the form of rap, breaths, or monosyllables were added over the top, and a whole new style was born. One legend of the origin of the term has rapper Keith Cowboy mocking a friend who’d just joined the Army with the nonsense phrase “hip/hop hip/hop” to mimic the marching soldiers.
