DUBXANNE
Police In Dub

Who books these in? We may have mocked at the Police's cod reggae leanings back in their heyday but just to prove the peroxide threesome were real life dreadlock heroes here is a collection of dub interpretations of some of their best known songs. Reggae heavyweights Rankin' Roger, Benjamin Zephaniah and Big Youth all featu...view item »

Charles Bradley feat. The Inversions
Whatcha Doing (To Me) / Strike Three

Victor ‘Tiklah’ Axelrod has taken two of Charles Bradley’s soulful masterpieces and given them a reggae recharge. Whatcha Doing (To Me) featured on Bradley’s Changes album as You Think I Don’t Know (But I Know). Axelrod and his crew turn it into something akin to a 1970s Bunny Lee production.

The Chosen Brothers
March Down Babylon

You may know The Chosen Brothers’ 1980 tune ‘March Down Babylon’ as ‘Mash Down Babylon’ off the back of a 2000 re-rub by Rhythm & Sound. Apparently even Mr. Bullwackie himself can’t quite decide which is the real title. Either way, this rootsy tune is a ...view item »

The Chosen Brothers
Sing & Shout

Reissue of a Wackie’s classic here. Sing & Shout, the debut LP by The Chosen Brothers, originally saw daylight in 1985. Even back then this was a ten-tonne collection of roots reggae, and this new outing soups up the record with 12” versions of ‘All Things’ and ‘Dancing...view item »

The Ethiopians
Woman Capture Man

Originally released in 1970, Woman Capture Man by The Ethiopians came at a time when the sound of reggae was changing to a slower, smoother groove. The band, who were among Jamaica’s most popular then, made an album of sweet songs with their harmonious vocals up front in the mix. This is the sound of a ban...view item »

Soul Jazz Records presents Down Beat Special

Soul Jazz have picked out ten fiery classics from the Studio One archives.

Recorded at Black Ark by The Upsetter (Lee 'Scratch' Perr...view item »

Flesh of my Skin of Blood of my Blood is a classic that is now available to us everyday people, far away from the jungle. Bring home the funk!...view item »

Keith Hudson
Rasta Communication in Dub

Sometimes, a wink is enough to communicate a thousand words. Sometimes, you can do with a nod.

Al Cisneros
Ark Procession / Jericho

The Bug
London Zoo

Funny. Not only Leila comes back to top my Summer then my fave bassbin basher Kevin Martin muscles in on the Dangerous Brian appeasing act (an act brought in by my beleaguered gaffer who really could do without me stamping round the office shouting obscenities every day!) Yes, welcome to The Bug's London Zoo, the gates have been semtexed...view item »

Bush Chemists
Light Up Your Spliff

Don’t mind if I do. Light Up Your Spliff was originally released in 1996, and the LP has cast a long shadow over British dub reggae ever since. The title track, a heady mix of digital dub stylings, subbier-than-sub bass and synth trickery, remains one of the scene’s high-point (pun sort of intended). Indeed, across the recor...view item »

Pecker
Pecker Power

Here’s a rare example of Japan’s reggae dub undercurrent circa 1980: Pecker Power, by Pecker. The album mixes Japanese musicians like Minako Yoshida with familiar Jamaican original legends like Sly & Robbie and members of The Wailers, for an electronical...view item »

Digital Reggae

Music From Memory continue to position themselves as heirs to the Soul Jazz throne with another excellent reissue.

Al Chem
Weird Fiction

First full-length album from Al Chem, whose take on dub music is filtered through many layers of hazy electronics to become something else. Weird Fiction feels woozy and pressurised, like the mix could seep apart at any moment, a vibe that makes for enticing listening. Deep atmosphere stuff, released by Art Yard....view item »

King Tubby meets Roots Radics
Dangerous Dub

Another excellent outing from King Tubby, this time working with Roots Radicals. Dangerous Dub gets nice and deep, echoes and reverb sending the instrumentals to some wild places. You know you can count on Tubby. First released in 1981, these ten tracks are reissued on vinyl ...view item »

The Harder They Come

The unshakeable masterpiece is back for another ten rounds. We're sure you’ve heard this before, but the influence of the soundtrack to Jimmy Cliff’s 1972 film The Harder They Come cannot be overstated.

At 10 Downing Street

Dub subversions of the UK party political system from Winston Edwards & Black Beard.

Heavyweight business here. Jackie Mittoo’s ‘The Sniper’ and King Tubby & The Aggrovators’s ‘Dub Fi Gwan’ on the same slab o’ wax, the former on 45 for the first time ever. Both tracks were cut in the 70s and carry plenty of pedigree, but they bare repeating. Mittoo&r...view item »

Johnny Osbourne
Love You Tonight

A pair of highly sought-after Prince Jammy / Channel One productions, finally available together on a single 12” alongside their dub versions.

The Bug
Filthy

'Freakshow' is an apt title for the opening cut on this double 10" set. When I first heard this tune I wasn't so sure about it, it sounded kinda chaotic and messy but Danny Brown is pretty intense so it took a couple listens to get my head round it. The Bug is in usual savage form dr...view item »

Dubkasm meets Talisman
She Look Like Reggae (Dubkasm)

Bristol reggae meets Bristol reggae here, with Talisman handing over their tune She Look Like Reggae to Dubkasm for two new workings.

Iganda
Mark of Slavery / Slow Down

News to this blurb-writer, but three decades ago there was a thriving reggae scene in the Midlands. Though I guess that me now knowing about it proves that the reissues game is one worth playing.

Kiki Hitomi
Karma No Kusari

This is officially being labeled as a Reggae album. Karma No Kusari by Kiki Hitomi could however fit into a myriad of genre - is it sweet candy pop, with songs such as Pink No Kimono having a sickly-sweet feeling.
