Here's a cute story about how Dub FX and Flower Fairy met. They met while Dub FX was travelling in Manchester. Striking a bond immediately, Flower Fairy decided to accompany Dub FX in his travels around the world and earn a buck by busking on the street. Aww!
What makes the Dub FX story interesting?
The Dub FX story becomes interesting because this artist claims to be independent. By independent, he means that he has no manager, no backing of a giant music label and more importantly, no one to promote him. How does he do it? I don't know. But Dub FX has his own website, a YouTube channel and strong word of mouth publicity because of his street performances. Oh and did I forget to mention hubbers like me? Dub FX, if you are reading this, you are welcome.
Best Dub FX songs - Which are my favorite Dub FX videos?
As I mentioned earlier, I do not like all of Dub FX's music and videos. Some are just too 'blah' for my taste. It is amusing to see how Dub FX keeps explaining to people how he makes his live music during his street performances. I bet skeptics may even think that he is playing recorded loops!
Here are the best top 3 Dub FX music videos that I like.
Dub FX 18/04/2009 'Flow' feat. Woodnote
Dub FX Flow, has to be one of the most epic music videos I've seen in the last 5 years. Is it Dub FX's amazing talent? Is it the saxophone? Is it the live looping? Is it Mr Woodnote? Is it the beat? I don't know what it is that makes this video very special. Take a look and see what I watch and listen to when I need a spark to brighten up my day.

Dub FX 10/10/2008 'Love Someone'
Dub FX Love Someone takes you on an emotional roller coaster. I say this because this Dub FX video offers a glimpse into the life of an artist who spends his life busking. It is a touch life, and buskers rely on cd purchases and tips to make a living. It's probably not that hard for Dub FX since this video alone has got more than 10 million views.

Dub FX 18/04/2009 'Soothe Your Pain'
Dub FX Soothe your pain starts on a bland note. But it builds up to a very happy tune with a catchy beat.
