Dub Syndicate is a dub band, formed by Adrian Sherwood, and it became a showcase for Adrian Sherwood's collaboration with Style Scott, former ace drummer with the Roots Radics and Creation Rebel.

Dub Syndicate initially evolved out of Creation Rebel and had a classic dub sound until the third album, Tunes From The Missing Channel (1985), where Dub Syndicate gave birth to a highly experimental more technological dub sound. Dub Syndicate's new sound centered around the interaction of Scott, Sherwood, and members of Tackhead, Skip McDonald, Keith LeBlanc, and Doug Wimbish.

Dub Syndicate has collaborated with many other artists including Lee "Scratch" Perry, Bim Sherman (vocals), Deadly Headley (saxophone) and Dr. Pablo (melodica), (N.B. Dr. Pablo is not Augustus Pablo).

Most of the band's output has appeared on On-U Sound Records, and has been produced by the label's owner Adrian Sherwood. Recently Dub Syndicate content has been released on Style Scott's own Lion & Roots record label and production duties have been split between Adrian Sherwood, Scientist, and Style Scott himself. More recently Dub Syndicate has worked with Dancehall artists such as Luciano, Capleton, and Jr. Reid.
