Exploring the cultural phenomenon of Dub reggae, Dub London: Bassline of a City charts its incredible influence on the landscape of London and its communities.

Beginning with its roots in Jamaican reggae and following its shaping of communities over the last 50 years, the exhibition looks at the social and cultural impact Dub has had on London and its people. With a far-reaching influence on other areas of the music industry such as drum and bass, garage, hip hop and mainstream pop, Dub has even inspired legendary punk bands such as The Clash.

And, it isn’t just the music industry that Dub has influenced, as the exhibition also explores fashion, community and spirituality that takes inspiration from the genre. Featuring a range of objects, memories and personal stories from across the London boroughs, Dub reggae is celebrated as the cultural phenomenon it remains today.
