Those who know me personally know that I'm a reggae fiend and a fan of David Rodigan. The Gentleman Rudeboy helped launching the rocket called "Reggae Music" in England and therefore, in the entire world. There is a legend saying that if there is one dubplate by Bob Marley, it should be in Rodigan's box ... Anyway, here is another compilation curated by the man and to be released on the mighty BBE label. It's called "Dubwize shower" and it's dedicated to dub as you might have guessed ...

In the shops as from july 25th.

Press Release :

Dub music originated in the studios of Kingston, Jamaica in the early 1970’s as recording engineers began experimenting with analogue tapes using personally customised delay, echo and reverb effects. It was, in effect, the next step on from a straight instrumental recording or version. The idea of breaking down the elements in a traditional recording and choosing to hi-light vocals and various instruments in an echo chamber had a major impact on dancers in the Jamaican lawns, where the enormous sound systems would play.

The main protagonists of this unique development in sound creation were the sound engineers King Tubby (who actually owned his own sound system) Errol T. Thompson, Lee Perry and Sylvan Morris.

This album ‘Dubwize Showers’ is primarily a compilation of classic dub recordings made by those prolific engineers whilst also encompassing the work of younger contributors to the genre such as Alborosie and Da Grynch. The id! eal conditions in which to enjoy these tracks is when they are being pumped out of an enormous, heavy duty sound system where the full effect and legacy of Jamaican Dub music can be fully appreciated.

It was these dub recordings which have influenced and inspired many of our greatest drum and bass and dubstep producers.
