King Tubby's Classics: The Lost Midnight Rock Dubs Chapter 3




1x Vinyl LP Compilation Reissue



Release date

Jan 1, 2022




When dubwise music really started to come into its own in the early to mid 70s, it made overnight stars of backroom boys who had hitherto worked behind a mixing desk to serve those who were beginning to hoist reggae to an international stardom that it had long deserved, but that it had only achieved on short and non-sustained bursts until Chris Blackwell decided to throw a lot of promotion and money at the work of Bob Marley and his fellow Wailers in 1972. Of those men, there was no bigger star than the late Osbourne Ruddock, the great King Tubby’s and the man who, from a tiny home-made studio in the Waterhouse district of Kingston, Jamaica, did more than most to reposition the boundaries that production and mixing of Jamaican recordings.

Ashanti Selah joins the Dub Junction family with another killer production, that despite being over 5 years in the making, arrives at the perfect time in 2022 to spread the essential message of equal rights and justice across the world. Once an instrumental dubplate to be played exclusively by Iration Steppas, debuting at Dub Camp 2016, a link-up with Sweden's Dan-I Locks (of Deng Deng Hi-Fi) saw the revolutionary lyrics penned and a longstanding partnership formed. Bring in the magical horns from Berlin's Vale and the dream team delivers a truly uplifting soundsystem anthem for these crucial times. Limited run of 500 records, cut to heavyweight 180g vinyl.

Up next from Mood Hut we have the debut LP from Local Artist aka Ian Wyatt. Previously known for his underground party starters Dancer and Touch Tone. This time Ian takes us further towards the intimate end of the radio dial, recording music as a way of processing the emotions of watching his father and partner battle cancer pre-pandemic. Themes of love, loss and life emerge in a moody brew to help you through. In Local Artist’s world, the sun is setting on our old selves. Tonight is a slow ritual of letting go to gradually make room for the new. We’ve been up all night. It’s almost dawn and beyond the horizon, we can trust the light that morning brings.
Radiation Roots present a reissue of Sly & Robbie's Master Of Ceremony Dub. Master rhythm duo Sly and Robbie first met on the Jamaican club scene of the early 1970s, when both were playing clubs on Kingston's Red Hills Road. They began working together at Channel One studio when Sly was drummer and arranger of The Revolutionaries and Robbie the bassist mainstay of Bunny Lee's Aggrovators and soon became the most in-demand drum and bass team on the island.This obscure dub album, originally released on the Imperial label in Canada, was produced by Lee in the late 1970s, and has the Rhythm Twins trying their hands at updating classic rhythms such as "The Liquidator," "Death In The Arena," "It's Raining," "Love Me Forever" and "My Conversation," as well as killer cuts of Johnnie Clarke's "Roots Natty Congo," Gregory Isaacs' "Storm" and an odd "Legalize It" rendition, plus some wacky between-song interjections. A must for all dub devotees.
It's impossible to think about "dub" without thinking about the late Osbourne Ruddock, the great King Tubby. The singular most creative human being of the great many who've plied their trade behind a mixing desk in the name of reggae since the early 1970s. Dub may well have existed before Tubbs raised its profile to almost unimaginable heights, and it has continued to exist in the 21 years since he was senselessly slain in 1989.
