Dubfarm cultivates sounds from around the globe to create a musical tapestry that is seamless, organic, and meditative. Not to be mistaken with styles of electronic music also containing the word "dub", (or strictly Jamaican dub either), Dubfarm has a unique style that is all it's own. Drum and bass played live (with no computer or sequence) are the foundation. After that, any variety of instruments, sounds and voice are recorded until it is all mixed down real time. This is done with a hands-on an analogue mixer approach, by dropping sounds and effects in and out of the mix spontaneously "on the fly", in the tradition of Lee Perry, King Tubby, Augustus Pablo and other pioneers of what was first came to be known as "dub" music. But while the production techniques at the dubfarm shows full respect to roots of Jamaican dubwise music, the musical fruits may fall far from the tree.

Dubfarm chief rocker, Sam Godin performed in reggae bands for over ten years and was a founding member of John Brown's Body. With them, he wrote and recorded music for the ablums "All Time", "Among Them" and "This Day" (Shanachie Records) which have appeared in Hollywood films and received critical acclaim from many publications including Rolling Stone, The New York Times and High Times. He has also played keyboards in over 1000 live shows and toured the United States, Jamaica and Japan, giving him the opportunity to perform with and learn from many of the true masters of reggae music including The Wailers, Burning Spear, Black Uhuru, Culture, Israel Vibration, Jimmy Cliff, Mad Professor and Lee Perry. Another contributor to the Dubfarm sound is Tommy "Jah Bunny" Benedetti who is recognized as one of the hardest roots reggae drummers in the business, and is the resident drummer of John Brown's Body. Paul Merrill, (who also plays trumpet for the Phil Woods band) adds a mellow tone that melts in your ears. Nate "Salis" Richards plays the sweet licks on the guitar and Sam Godin rounds out the sound with crucial dubwise basslines, keyboards, melodica and studio wizardry.
