Favourite Reggae/Dub songs.
 
Not the most of enlightening threads I agree but it's an underused forum so why not gee it up a little? Post some of your fave Reggae/Dub trax for the masses and a little on why they are.


Dubmatix are a band I am constantly championing on these boards but their sound is just so huge. They call themselves 'Electro Dub' which is basically the team providing the beats on the decks and then a guitarist, bassist completing the line up with guest vocalists. Their updating (production wise) of the dub sound is utterly conducive to big festivals and this Canadian ensemble is someone I would love to see live.


Black Uhuru are based on the superlative vocal talents of Michael Rose and Jamaicia's best ever Drum and Bass combo- Sly & Robbie. Black Uhuru have always been high on melody and easy rythms.


WHAT! UB fucking 40? I cannot stand this band. When you mention that you like Reggae to most people they go "oh UB40?" No!No!No! they turned into what's termed as a 'Cod Reggae' band utilising skanking lines into drippy boring commercial pop songs. HOWEVER, this along with 1 in 10 was a hint of how good they could have been when they first started out. A superlative track and one of Britains best ever Reggae tracks.


More to come.

EDIT. i know there was another thread but I would like this one with videos and a little more info on the Tracks/artists if possible.
