With a chilled-out crowd and laid-back vibes, LA's reggae night is an institution that showcases both classic island artists and cutting-edge sounds. Featuring a diverse smattering of reggae, dub, dancehall, ska, dubstep, grime and roots music, Dub Club at the Echoplex is a Wednesday night mainstay in the local music scene. Immerse yourself in a sick sound system and let the thick island beats move your body.
From roots music and classic dub to reggae hits and dancehall jams, Dub Club has been the go-to night for heady vibes in Los Angeles since 2000. A potent presence in the worldwide reggae scene, this weekly 21+ event draws large crowds and performing artists from all over the world: Jamaica, UK, New Zealand and more. Dub Club takes place at the Echoplex in Echo Park, with plenty of room to stretch out and dance, plus a large outdoor smoking section with bleachers for chilling. Along with traditional Jamaican reggae and dancehall, Dub Club promotes a wide variety of roots music and bass music, and you might also encounter dubstep, grime, folk, ska, electronica and more. True to its roots in Jamaican sound system culture, the speaker stacks at Dub Club are of paramount importance: prepare to feel the bass flow through your body. Dub Club regularly welcomes special guests artists that are well known in the reggae world, and the night continues to be a popular weeknight gathering for East Side Angelenos. Resident DJs at Dub Club include Tom Chasteen, Boss Harmony, Dungeonmaster and Roy Corduroy; residents MCs include Jah Faith, Ras Benji, Chicho Don and Benjamin. Listen to the irie sounds of Jamaica, get your groove on and enjoy a glistening green night of easygoing reggae and the easygoing crowd that comes along with it. More than a club night, dub club is a highly respected institution that showcases classic talent while welcoming new artists to the fold. Jah bless!
Dub Club's resident DJ Tom Chasteen is the mastermind behind this successful night, as well as a producer and record label owner. He recently released Foundation Come Again on the local indie label Stones Throw, which features original tracks by Tippa Lee
