THE DUB GENERAL vol.1
dub music originated in the studios of Kingston, Jamaica in the early 1970's as recording engineers began experimenting with analogue tapes using personally customised delay, echo and reverb effects. It was , in effect, the next step on from a straight instrumental recording of version.
The idea of breaking down the elements in a traditional recording and choosing to hi-light vocals and various intruments in an echo chamber had a major impact on dancers in the Jamaican dancehalls and lawns, where the enormous sound systems would play.
The main protangonists of this unique development in sound creation were the sound engineers King Tubby (who actually owned his own sound system) Errol T. Thompson, Lee Perry and Sylvan Morris. _D.Rodigan 2011
The ideal conditions in which to enjoy these tracks is when they are being pumped out of an enormous , heavy duty sound system where the full effect and legacy of Jamaican Dub music can be fully appreciated.
