Classic dub material compiled legendary UK selector David Rodigan on BBE! David Rodigan's Dubwize Shower acts as a primer on Jamaican dub music with a top notch selection of tracks from pioneering producers like King Tubby, Lee Perry, Errol T. Thompson, and Sylvan Morris. From BBE: "Dub music originated in the studios of Kingston, Jamaica in the early 1970s 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 or version. The idea of breaking down the elements in a traditional recording and choosing to hi-light vocals and various instruments in an echo chamber had a major impact on dancers in the Jamaican lawns, where the enormous sound systems would play." In addition to the classic dubs, there are also some newer cuts included from Albarosie and Da Grynch. Best experienced loud and on a proper sound system. Recommended.
