Spatial Effects of Dub vs other Genres

My podcast describes how the use of different production techniques give Dub a spatial effect, specifically focuses on the techniques of reverberation and layering. I was really interested in how the reverb effects made the Dub songs sound as if they were drifting off into the distance or were being heard from a another room, or big concert hall. In order to demonstrate this, I take samples of Dub, and compare them to other songs of different genres where reverberation is used, but not in the same way that it is in Dub. I also briefly discuss how the use of vocals contributes to this spatial, or tangible difference.
