One eye on the past, this captures UK roots sound-system vibes, like magic in a bottle; the other on the future, it’s a prophecy of dubstep. Originally released on Steve Mosco’s Jah Warrior label in 1996.
Kicks off with a dub of the killer Bobby Boy rhythm, and includes versions of Hot Milk, Afrikaan Beat, Shank I Sheck and Ali Baba, not to mention Hugh Mundell’s almighty Jah Fire Will Be Burning.
Riveting, deeply grooving digi-dubs from the late-80s. Replay Version sets the mood — malevolent, sick and haunted, but funky like a train, with cruelly brilliant effects; really a stunning piece of music.
Jimmy Radway’s dub masterpiece. Massive, brawling rhythms, hard and thunderous and innovative like the very best Glen Brown. Essential!
Bracing early Tubbys — the revolutionary transformation of classics like Creator’s Kingston Town, a couple of Andy Capps, The Dynamites’ Red Moon. With Stitt going at U-Roy, on King Of Kings.
