anyone know a good album to start with? is it like dub-step jazz-fusion? a friend of mine likes dub a lot, and i like some of it, but i think i like the idea of it more than i like it. But mixed with jazz? now im really interested.

Most of the dub fusion I know of is just dub music (instrumental reggae or sometimes hip-hop), but with good solos on top. A lot of Nils Petter Molvaer could be called Dub Fusion.
My favorite is 'Hallucination Engine' by Material. I have a review up on the site.
I have a few others I've been meaning to review by Bill Laswell and Jah Wobble too.

Let me know what you think of it, the tone is kind of somber.

If you want to hear a more pure version of Dub Fusion, check out 'Dub Chamber' by Bill Laswell. Nothing but Laswell's dub tracks topped with Molvaer's trumpet solos.

Ekstasis  "Wake Up and Dream" is Bill Laswell's big one for us down here.

Be very careful, there are shockers in amongst his disco. I have probaly heard about half of it. Hallucination Engine is great I have that one as well. Praxis is good as well. I have a certain fondness for his collaboration with the Swiss Moroccan label Barraka. I would say John would not but they are Arabic music which has been techno-ed right up and usually the albums are full on. They're most popular release is
 
Shabeesation
 
Another fave is this one
 
South Moroccan Motor Berber
 
With a title like that you should know what it going to be like.
