Little Axe
London Blues

Little Axe, AKA Skip MacDonald was schooled in blues, jazz and gospel. He was once a session player in the Sugarhill Records house band.

Sly and The Revolutionaries
Black Ash Dub

They were the most infamously wicked rhythm section in Jamaica.

Listen Up! - Rocksteady

Something was afoot in Jamaican music in the mid-’60s. Maybe it was the lingering thrill of the island gaining independence in 1962; maybe it was that the generation who’d grown up with ska needed a new musical thrill; or maybe it was just an unseasonably hot Summer in 1965. Whatever it was, the conditions were ripe for a new style to come through and usurp ska’s crown. That style was Rocksteady, a slower, more sensual style and one of the most important musics of the 20th Century. To celebrate a half-decade of Jamaican independence, Kingston Sounds are issuing a series of Listen Up! compilations that chart the evolution of sound in this most important of musical lands. The Rocksteady edition features Delroy Wilson, The Sensations, Dawn Penn and many more.

King Jammy
Waterhouse Dub

King Jammy has a claim to being Jamaica’s foremost studio wizard, having been schooled by King Tubby and produced, among hundreds of other tracks, Wayne Smith’s ‘Under Me Sleng Teng’. He funnels decades of experience into another set of tough dubs. Comes with a nice poster showing the Waterhouse area of Kingston from which the album gets its name.

More Specials

Hello. Yes I’m fine, thank you - and how are you? Excellent. I’m glad you’re open this early, I’m famished! Could you tell me what The Specials are today? Two-tone ska? Ahh yes, I remember that from the first time I came here back in 1979. Any More Specials on offer? Lounge music? Ooh, that’s a new one. And Northern Soul? Oh, well who doesn’t love a bit of that if it’s done right. Superb. I’ll take the lot. Could you ask the chef to remaster it before he sends it out? Lovely stuff, thanks very much.

Noel Ellis
Noel Ellis

Noel Ellis’ self-titled album of dub-tinged reggae songcraft is an underrated gem, well worthy of reissue by Light In The Attic.

Big re-issue for fans of premium dub. A companion piece to 'Tuff Gong Encounter' this showcases The Wailers in fine and heavy style. King Jammy is at the controls for six massive woofer testing dub tracks, with the vinyl cut loud for maximum rib rattling bass and big drum sounds.

Jeb Loy Nichols
Long Time Traveller

Jeb Loy Nichols sits in both the country and the dub camps for this record.

MM / Imaabs
Body Horror II

MM is the abbreviated form of Miss Modular (the boss of Her Records), who obviously isn’t afraid to push into experimental territory while still maintaining the dance. Two wild pummelings on her side, and on the B we have Chilean producer Imaabs, who goes slow and hypnotising with his material. On the Purple Tape Pedigree label.

Just Dennis

Famous reggae record label Trojan is treating us to yet another reissue. This time it’s Just Dennis, the 1975 classic by Dennis Brown.

This reissue is specially expanded to include a few extra tracks. Crucial material on CD or double LP.

Tradesman
Springbox Riddim Part Two

This time, Tradesman invites Speng Bond to drop lines over his Springbox Riddim. With the same beat, the song is just as catchy and head-nod-friendly as Rudeboy Skank. It’s chill, easy and groovy, but unfortunately there are only 500 seven inch singles to go around, so make your pick and get it shipped.

Capital Letters
Vinyard

UK reggae of the highest order, hailing from 1982 with a roots sound that could fairly be described as classic. Capital Letters best known album was probably this one, Vinyard, so here it is reissued with a smattering of outtakes and a typically high-grade Peel Session. CD or LP formats, out on Greensleeves.

Mungo's Hi Fi (featuring Charlie P)
You See Me Star

Fresh young newcomer Charlie P teams up with Glasgow soundsystem veterans Mungo’s Hi Fi for an album of straightforward roots reggae / reggae dancehall. You See Me Star even has Charlie puffing smoke on the cover, so you know he’s authentic. He fits in with Mungo’s sound pretty perfectly to be fair though. On Scotch Bonnet.

Black Symbol
Black Symbol

Now here’s another solid piece of contemporary dub. Bouncing on jolly basslines and floating around tweetering reed solos, Black Symbol’s self-titled LP is sparse reggae at its finest. The first LP features two tracks and various remixes, whereas the second is a full-length album in its own right.

Bunny Lion
Red

Some soul soothers on this one from Bunny Lion. Red is getting the repress treatment, even though it evaded the limelight the first time. Featuring vocals from Linval Thomas, this record is raw, outrageously grooving and a delicious slice of dubbed out reggae for those wanting some untapped rootsy vibrations. Turns out Bunny Lion is in fact Puddy Roots so ya better snap it up. Out on vinyl LP and CD from Captured Tracks.
  • Genre(s):
  • Reggae / Dub / Dancehall

Sherwood & Pinch
Late Night Endless

Two generations of dub pioneers combine as Adrian Sherwood meets Pinch on CD and vinyl for On U-Sound. Sherwood brings his singular and experimental studio mastery whilst the dark, rolling percussion can probably be attributed to Pinch’s deft fingers. Disembodied vocals, swathes of echo and heavy bass-lines dominate a collaboration so perfectly matched it seemed unlikely to ever happen.

Scientist
The Dub Album They Didn't Want You To Hear

Since the late 70s, The Scientist has been treating the world to bass-heavy dub tunes on the renomated Jah Life label. From their old dusty boxes they have now uncovered these high-resin dub mixes that have that old school vibe and that tasty deep bass mix. Come hit this shit and listen yourself right off the deep end.
