Where Sicko Mode's weirdest moments came from

Tracing the roots of Jamaican dub music.

"Sicko Mode" by Travis Scott was an unexpected chart-topper. It sounds more like three songs than one. Its disjointed, other-worldly effects, echos, and song structure are a far cry from the traditional pop songs we're used to, but it's in these off-kilter moments that we get glimpses of a musical culture and genre that was centered around sonic experimentation and innovation, and has influenced everything from punk, rock, and pop for nearly half a century: Jamaican dub.
