I've recently introduced a few people to dub with Scientist Rids the World... they bought it the next day. Some others I suggest are Prince Far I "Dub to Africa" (especially the song "Internal Dub"... beautiful!), & the Upsetters "Super Ape." All these may be a bit played out, but the idea is to introduce newbies. Then, you can crack their skull wide open with deeper shit. <BR>thanks!
I'm probably relatively new to dub myself compared to some of you. I personally got hooked on dub listening to Augustus Pablo, especially his dubs of Jacob Miller tracks. <BR> <BR>I guess king tubby is quite a good introduction, too. Most of my friends seem to like it. <BR> <BR>I know some of you have suggested newer, more modern stuff but it's the older stuff that really chills me out, Lee perry, Prince Far-I, Israel Vibrations. <BR> <BR>Happy dubbing
The first time I heard DUB was at a club in Birmingham nearly 10 years ago, totally unexpected, back then could only describe it as Bob Marley on acid. First Album I got was 'Revolution Dub' by L.Perry, still one of my favourites. Keith Hudson (Brand, Pickadub) plus the Yabby You 'Beware Dub', the list is too long. <BR>On a new tip, the Rythm & Sound comp is excellent, plus Aba-Shanti is a must at the Notting Hill carnival, inspirational!
I like the Lee "Scratch" Perry dub compilation album, "Upsetter in Dub." That album is on Heartbeat. Another good album is Horace Andy's "In the Light/In the Light Dub" on Blood and Fire. The vocal album and the versions on one CD!
mad professor-the inspirational sound of mad prof..the whole album is great. <BR>Alpha & omega: mystical things, a very good album from very good band <BR>I also recommend Scientist, king tubby and kapteeni ä-ni( a finnish dub band)
Some great tracks to introduce people to reggae are: <BR> <BR>Lee Perry - Money dub <BR>Keith Hudson - I'm allright (my favorite), Michael Talbot Affair. <BR>Scientist - Dance of the vampires, The Mummy's shroud (GTA 3 soundtrack), Seconds away. <BR>Also Augustus pablo is a nice introduction but he's not only doing dubs. <BR> <BR>Also for new dub I recommend everyone to listen to Sub Oslo. Great live dub band from Texas.
anything by sounds from the ground if they like ambient techno <BR> <BR>stuff that is not stricty reggae or dub, but has deffinate dub roots - "wild dub" by generation x (bill idol's old punk band), "battle" by blur, w.s.d. by suede (err, london suede to us yanks), and of course any adrian sherwood/on-u stuff. <BR> <BR>and, of corse, the reggae stuff... <BR>king tubby meets rockers uptown, any king tubby, augustus pablo, lee "scratch" perry (black ark in dub), scientist, mad professor, linton kwesi johnson... you know how the list goes
