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. ...view item »

King Jammy
