Jake Carter Sub Zero and Adam Tindill Original Sin, otherwise known as Geordie production duo Generation Dub. Having cemented a reputation for energetic dancefloor enabled them to established themselves as a formidable production partnership.
Born and bred in Newcastle, the duo followed similar paths before fate willed them to cross at Music College. Jake grew up listening to rock and hip-hop before being converted to jungle drum n bass by artists such as Goldie and LTJ Bukem, while it was the ‘Platinum Breakz’ and ‘The Prototype Years’ albums which brought Adam’s attention to the bass and the drum, before which he steadily moved from his parents 80s record collection, through hip-hop, hardcore, and house.
Generation Dub got their first release with ‘Ghost Busters’ b/w ‘Monster Sound’ on Reformed, a subsidiary of Formation for up and coming producers. This was followed by the now notorious remix of Total Science’s classic ‘Champion Sound’ on CIA, which brought them to the attention of the whole jungle drum n bass community. But the track that truly placed them into the dancefloor’s consciousness was their first 12 for Formation, which included the awesome steppy beast ‘Body Snatchers’.
Caned by absolutely everyone from Grooverider to J Majik, ‘Body Snatchers’ was Generation Dub’s first anthem and established them as a dancefloor force to be reckoned with. Despite a hectic release and DJ schedule, which has seen them play in countries such as America and Sweden, they also found the time to set up their own imprint, Propaganda, which they see as an outlet for their more experimental work under their G Dub moniker, and also a place for nurturing new artists, such as Adam’s brother Taxman.
