This is the archival record for Dub.
It was the ninth studio release.
It sold out in May 2021 and has been retired.
The original formulation will not be remade.
Dub is a remix between Quasi una absurdia and Bluer Skies (Whenever You're Around).
It features abstract floral notes supported by rhythms of sandalwood, patchouli, citrus, aldehydes, and musk.
Throughout the musical canon — particularly in the genres of house and other electronic music — songs are often modified into a derivative work, sometimes by their original authors, sometimes by someone new, and the result is called a remix. This stems from the process of production mixing after recording, when multiple iterations of aural adjustments are made to a song to finesse the experience of its playback, with a preferred result chosen for pressing and publication. Typically, remixes differ materially from their original stock yet still maintain a similar identity between them.
In house music parlance, a dub is a type of remix wherein most, if not all, of its vocal tracks have been removed. This contrasts an acappella, which is a naked vocal track stripped of its instrumental backing.
Remixes can also be exponential, which is to say as intentional mashups of two separate songs further edited or re-instrumented into a new work that is greater than the sum of its parts.
Dub follows this music logic but through a perfume lens: A new perfume stripped of its starring vocal tracks but nevertheless ready to dance.
It is a parfum de toilette, a high-concentration formulation of lightness and transparency.
Unisex — built with everyone in mind.
