Augustus Pablo
King David's Melody - Classic Instrumentals & Dubs

By now the dub O.G. Pablo needs no introduction, so the selling point of this particular collection is 5 never-before-heard cuts collected and released for the first time. The grooves are rocksteady, the vibe is deep and the production is impeccable and pioneering, and then there’s that wonderful melodica playing to cap the whole show off.

Soul Jazz, true pros of the art of the compilation, turn their attention to Rastafari music with Rastafari: The Dreads Enter Babylon 1955-83 - From Nyabinghi, Burro and Grounation to Roots and Revelation.

Lloyd Parks / Var
Slaving / Crime

Two essential tracks from reggae’s history. Lloyd Parks’ Slaving is a powerful lament set to a skanking rhythm, and it comes paired with Var’s tune Crime, which keeps the vibe serious. Both numbers have the beautiful simplicity of the best reggae: just a couple of elements, performed and combined just right. This is a 12” single reissued by Inna de Yard.

African Headcharge
Return Of The Crocodile

African Headcharge was the pairing of Jamaican percussionist Bonjo Iyabinghi Noah with producer Adrian Sherwood: they got busy in the studio making psychedelic dub interpretations of Afrocentric musics. Return Of The Crocodile is a selection of familiar original tracks that have been made unfamiliar by dramatically different approaches: double-dubbed, if you will. Vinyl release on On-U Sound.

Keith Hudson
Pick A Dub

A crucial piece of the dub canon, produced way back in 1974 by Keith Hudson. A strong case can be made for Pick a Dub being one of the very first dub works, taking earlier tracks and filtering, echoing and otherwise re-organising them. The sound is sparser than some later dub, allowing each element of the mix to shine. Reissued by VP, with bonus tracks.

Johnny Osbourne / Otis Gayle
We Need Love / I'll Be Around

Soul Jazz have always excelled at putting together super-strong compilations of the finest old sounds, especially when it comes to reggae and dancehall. But sometimes you want to be able to spin the tunes old-school: one track per 12” side, all ready for DJing. In which case, good news! A whole set of 12” reissues are landing, including We Need Love / I’ll Be Around by Johnny Osbourne and Otis Gayle respectively.

Steve Spacek
Follow Me

If his Discogs page is telling the truth, then this is Steve Spacek's first solid release since 2009, on Eglo Records no less! Oh, and the page also says that his brother is apparently D-Bridge. Give this man some credit on his own, jeez. Expect some extremely soulful house action across the course of this 12", if the title track is anything to go by.

Dub Spencer & Trance Hill
Deep Dive Dub

Dub isn’t a genre known for it’s progressive or experimental leanings, but then again Switzerland isn’t really known for it’s contribution to dub. Put together elements of dub, trance like electronics and an edge of theatrics and you get Dub Spencer & Trance Hill. They made a William Burroughs dub album for god’s sake.

Mystic Eyes
Mysterious

Mysterious, the 1979 album of Anthony Johnson’s group Mystic Eyes, is a very rare piece of reggae history: as it has never been reissued, original copies fetch high, hefty prices.

Dub Realistic

Dubblestandart are a long-running dub crew from Austria. They’ve deeply learned the lessons of the Jamaican originators though to be fair, with every sound swimming around in a cosy echo haze. It does feel a little odd to hear toasting in German though… Dub Realistic is out on Echo Beach.

Count Ossie & The Rasta Family
Man From Higher Heights

Count Ossie died in 1976, but that didn’t stop his Rasta Family from releasing this album in 1983. The exact provenance of the recordings presented on Man From Higher Heights is not entirely clear, but either way, this slab of rhythm-heavy roots music has the Rastafari spirit of the Count firmly intact.

Revenge Of The Underdog

Earth-quaking dub from the Singers & Players collective.

Lifetones
For A Reason

Lifetones was the post-This Heat project of Charles Bullen, in which he worked with Julius Samuel to incorporate West Indian reggae flavours into his music.

African Head Charge
My Life In A Hole In The Ground

An exciting quartet of African Head Charge albums incoming from Adrian Sherwood’s On-U Sound. The group dabbled in deep dub and intense psychedelia, stretching pretty far out on occasion. My Life In A Hole In The Ground was their 1981 debut, a sort of response to Brian Eno and David Byrne’s My Life In The Bush Of Ghosts.

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

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.

Keith Hudson
Rasta Communication

Keith Hudson's records are unique in the reggae canon, mainly due to the strength of his personality and his unflinching examination of darker themes- hence his reputation as the 'dark prince of raggae'. While this has made him a slightly marginal figure in a genre mostly celebrated for its relaxed, sunny vibes- Hudson's albums have always been especially revered as some of the deepest and most uncompromising to be found in Jamaican roots music- gaining new audience appreciation with reissues of key records on the ubercool Basic Replay imprint. This reissiue of his 1978 classic 'Rasta Communication' features some of his most memorable songs.

Black Symbol Presents Handsworth Explosion Vol. I

'Handsworth Explosion Vol. 1' exists thanks to the tireless efforts of Black Symbol, a dub reggae act who sought out other prominent, rising acts in the Handsworth scene and gave them the chance to record tunes at their Outlaw Studio. After the songs were wrapped up, they committed them to this compilation, hoping to show off the vibrant and ever-growing scene they belong to. 'Handsworth Explosion' is a great snapshot of a significant reggae hotspot.

Bucky Skank EP 2

The second EP on this eclectic Bucky Skank label brings a bunch of different artists out to play, each serving up their own slice of weirdo dub: JD Twitch and Dave Clark team up, as per, while Jabru goes solo and Richmond hangs out with Lord Shearton for both flip-side tracks. Lots of rhythm to be felt, here.

The Bug
Angels & Devils

Plenty of big-name collaborators on The Bug's latest, 'Angels & Devils'. Billed as a "battle between utopian and dystopian" (but definitely not a "concept album", oh no) you get Liz Harris (Grouper), Warrior Queen, Gonjasufi, Miss Red, Death Grips, Manga (Roll Deep), Copeland and Flowdan for your money. Pulling together "the fringes of all outsider music into a common voice" according to the press release, the 'Angels' side is described as "the heady/heavy dubbed out Angels side of the equation" whilst 'Devils' "brings The Bug's grime/ragga bass beat downs back into play". Should be interesting!

Steel Pulse
Handsworth Revolution

Some spiritual cleansing from Midlands legends Steel Pulse. Handsworth Revolution is widely lauded as the pinnacle of UK reggae which is reason enough for a repress. Full of big tracks, big grooves and a bigger message this is definitely one to scoop up on wax. Is it the best thing to come out of Birmingham since Black Sabbath? Quite possibly. Out on vinyl LP from Back To Black.

Michael Prophet
Serious Reasoning

Another reggae great and another classic plate rescued from collector obscurity, this guy is well loved but relatively underrated. Along with Yabby who he collaborated with, this is another burner from around 1980 that has long needed such a dust-off! Michael George Haynes is his real name. A true Prophet!

Burning Spear
Marcus Garvey

'Marcus Garvey' is an utterly legendary mid 70s roots reggae album produced by Lawrence Lindo. Burning Spear's masterful classic is even more highly praised in many quarters than any long-players by Bob Marley and came complete with a "sister" dub album (not included here) called 'Garvey's Ghost' As a tribute to the great man, one of Jamaica's real heroes, this is quite something to behold. I think the big guy would have been very proud.

The combination of a clear vision from these two producers and a multitude of legendary guest vocalists make for some outrageous dancehall n' dub rhythms. Out on vinyl LP and CD from Freestyle.

The Quasi Dub Development
Little Twister vs Stiff Neck

The Quasi Dub Development make friendly homemade Dub with their hands and many instruments. This gives their records an experimental yet at the same time more accessible feel than other recordings in the genre that rely more heavily on post production methods and effects. This unique sound even inspired Dub pioneer Lee 'Scratch' Perry to make an appearance on the track “Let's Communicate”.

Yellowman
Nobody Move Nobody Get Hurt

Reissue of important 80’s dancehall on Greensleeves. Rather than anything to do with We Are Scientists, Nobody Move, Nobody Get Hurt is sterling material from Jamaican original Yellowman. The title track is especially great, you pretty much need it. And how could you not want that cover starting out at you from your mantelpiece?

Dubblestandart
In Dub

We try to measure with one ruler, but Dubbelstandart makes it hard. Normally we love all sick dub equally, but In Dub is just, well, double as good as usual. Warped electronics and a bass that will make your brains wobble are normally enough, but Dubbelstandart don’t take half measures - and they definitely dub it twice.
