Ambient dub involves the genre melding of dub styles. It was pioneered by King Tubby and other Jamaican sound artists, who used DJ-inspired ambient electronica, complete with all the inherent drop-outs, echo, equalization and psychedelic electronic effects. It often features layering techniques and incorporates elements of world music, deep bass lines and harmonic sounds. According to David Toop, "Dub music is like a long echo delay, looping through time...turning the rational order of musical sequences into an ocean of sensation." Notable artists within the genre include Dreadzone, Higher Intelligence Agency, The Orb, Loop Guru, Woob and Transglobal Underground as well as Banco de Gaia and Another Green World.
