Keith Hudson
Rasta Communication in Dub

Sometimes, a wink is enough to communicate a thousand words. Sometimes, you can do with a nod. Other times, all you need is a “ya man.” Such is the wisdom spread by the Rasta Communication in Dub, Keith Hudson’s newest thesis on the subtleties of expression in the world of bass and&nbs...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 »

Linval presents
Dub Landing Vol. 2

The evergreen Greensleeves repackage this essential 1981 LP from Linval Thompson. While the original dubs retain all the experimental energy of Jamaica’s 70s and 80s dub explosion, the real treats here are bonus vocal versions mixed by Scientist and Prince Jammy. The ...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. Love You Tonight is upbeat and dissonant, with an oddly wiry, almost post-punk rhythm guitar line. Purify Your Heart is a more laidback rhythm with righteously prea...view item »

Augustus Pablo
Africa Must Be Free... By 1983 Dub

Augustus Pablo was one of the real roots and dub reggae originals, both as a producer and as the pioneer of the melodica within reggae.

Junior Delgado
Away With You Fussing and Fighting

Junior Delgado’s tight 1979 number Away With You Fussing And Fighting has somehow been around this whole time without ever being granted the honour of a a 7” vinyl release! Most odd. But that wrong has now been righted by the Greensleeves label, getting this essential slice of reggae out on the shelves....view item »

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....view item »

Michael Prophet
Gunman

Produced at the legendary Jamaican Channel One studios with the unstoppable Roots Radics band, this record features classic sound sy...view item »

Revolutionaires
Goldmine Dub

In 1979, the Revolutionaries were all up about that revolution stuff, especially revolving records. Straying away from their late 18th century France roots, these guys opened up a whole can of humanist worms when they set out to create the illest dub conceived by man. Aged like a good wine, Norman Records is honored to present t...view item »

Eek-A-Mouse / Lee Van Cleef
Christmas-A-Come / Gone Water Gone

Festivities and jovial tidings from Eek-A-Mouse. This repress of Christmas-A-Come is a stark reminder of the poverty all over the place, especially in Eek's home town of Kingston. This reggae roast has Mr Mouse toasting over a down-tempo groove in his archetypal melodious verbalisations...view item »

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 ...view item »

Wayne Smith
Under Mi Sleng Teng

Oh my god, Sleng Teng! Under Mi Sleng Teng by Wayne Smith is one of those tunes that you know inside out, even if you don’t know that you know it. As a sample it has turned up in countless contexts: frankly it is part of the DNA of all reggae / dub derived musics. Original Greensleeves 12” re-pressed for you...view item »

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 o...view item »

Papa Michigan & General Smiley
Downpression

Some music is just plain cheerful, happy, without pretensions. Papa Michigan and General Smiley deliver a reggae-dub-pop hybrid that will make you smile. Downpression oozes with the sweltering heat of anything mastered by the Scientist himself, and drips with unworried joy. Recommended if you live in the Caribbean, woul...view item »

Mighty Diamonds / Sly & Robbie
Gates Of Zion / Zion In Dub

To be honest, this is all about the Sly & Robbie dub on the flip for me. A skipping groove that screams sunshine, horns that keep this track bumping along nicely and lovely percussion fills that stop this falling into the trap some dub tunes do - being aimless. Sly & Robbie do drum and bass like no other, for about the price of a...view item »

Busy Signal
Badman Place (Coki remix & Dub)

I wasn't sure about this at first what with the auto-tune on the vocals but once it gets going it's alright. I don't know the original track but Coki applies some wobble and paranoid synths giving it a really edgy feel. It was only a matter of time really before dubstep and dancehall productions merged and the results are pretty much as expe...view item »
