8. Dub Echoes (2008)

Brazilian director Bruno Natal’s Dub Echoes is a great little introduction to this pivotal genre for the uninitiated. It employs an international scope, successfully outlining the development of yard-style dub and it’s UK spin-off in general terms. Don’t expect any sweeping cinematography here, as this movie appears to have been done on a tight budget. Instead, cool points come from the movie’s approach. You get a front seat to the entire experience by hearing fans like Howie B gush about the style, then pioneers like Sly and Robbie and Bunny “Striker” Lee chime in to make it all relevant. Spring reverb, anyone??!
