Just some : groups like the Senior All Stars (Germany), The Scrucialists (Switzerland), Highnotes (NL), No More Babylon (France). Zenzile and Improvisators Band before they went for a more UK sound, many other examples who use dub in a different way, with more references to the JA sounds than the 90's UK dub. Yet, are such bands seen as "dub" for the purists, as they rarely released vocal versions and went straight to th dub effects. I won't take sides, as i have very "classic" tastes when it comes to dub, some from JA, some from the UK (esp. Mr Bovell).
Some europan producers : Bost & Bim, Fabwise, Manjul (a frenchman who lives in Mali), Roberto Sanchez, of course. I'm sure many non-UK members could drop quite a number of names from their local scenes who have recorded satisfactory dub efforts, be they producers or real groups who have recorded dub versions of their songs.

@asher, "eurodub" is a fully electronic music, watch the shiloh clip on the first page it is the perfect definition of "eurodub"
I notice that "eurodub" is actually based on 1980's Jah Shacka style with Mafia & Fluxy as musicians, ok back then I would maybe tolerate that kind of sound because recording a track was more difficult back then. but not in 2014 because nowdays you can at least add a live guitar to ballance out the unnatural computer sound, back in 80s it was not quiet easy you had to dubb it along the mix while recording to (expensive) tape, nowadays you just click "add next rec track" and thats it.
yes I am positively surprised by Jamo and will support his music if he continue to sound that good.
