I only heard some of Lee Perry, Mad Professor and Burning Spear.



Oh I forgot Dub Syndicate. I liked what I heard, but it's not much.

Hooray for roots reggae in the dub style. Dub music soldiers on, despite being placed on the endangered genre list back in the early 90s. King Tubby, Mad Professor, Lee Perry and Scientist are the keepers of the flame on the dub front.

There was a time when dub production techniques were limited to dub plate versions of Jamaican roots reggae music. Today in the year 2010 nearly every pop music group has remixed or dub version issues of many or all of their songs. I've heard deejay remixed versions of full albums by artists like Phoenix, the Pastels, the Kings of Convenience and Bebel Gilberto that sound better than the original mix of the album issue.

We should never forget all of those modern mainstream studio skills were invented by a small group of talented Jamaican deejays who were not only talented with musical gifts but also prodigies as electronic tekkies. Scientist, King Tubby, and Mad Professor are skilled electronics craftsmen who developed their unique bags of studio trickery to cheat the sonic limitations of their vintage array of sound system equipment. Lee Perry's recording equipment at the fabled Black Ark studio looks like he cobbled it together from 30 years of shopping at thrift stores, flea markets and pawn shops.

Most King Tubby's Firehouse studio releases had superior a superior production sound than most of the current modern day, 1st tier producers who work in state of the art 64 track recording studios. And please note that King Tubby was using studio equipment that was already second hand and 15 to 20 years out of date when he produced all of those glorious sounding dub versions back in the 80s.

Another encouraging trend in dub music is the new generation of young (mostly white) dub music devotees in the USA, UK, the Netherlands, Germany and France who crafting new dub techniques and expanding the musical horizons of both dub and roots reggae music. One of my favorite new dub artists is Messian Dread who operates the Dub Room website @ Dubroom Online: Edition Edition July 26-31 2010

This video below is an amazing tour de force of dub techniques used by Messian Dread during a recent soundboard check at his recording studio.
