Video: King Tubby the Originator of DUB!

Dubroom (DUB) Reggae Video Review

WWW, September 2007 - He is the godfather of DUB, we all heard his music and that which was inspired by him. Not many of us have seen him on video, but that is about to change...

King Tubby is widely accredited to be the Godfather of DUB. He was killed just after launching his first full-blown studio. Before that, he had been working in his Dub/Vocal Studio with the multi-tracks of others.

Everyone of any significance has worked with King Tubby during his lifetime. Together with "Daddy" U Roy, the Godfather of Toasting ("Reggae Rap"), he stood at the foundation of what is now common in popular music: heavy drum and bass lines, effects, and rhythmic chanting or "rap".

However, all these styles like Rap and Hip Hop and Contemporary Electronic Dance Music could not be there, or would at least sound quite different, without the indirect influence of King Tubby.

Unfortunately only for 16 seconds, but here he is: KING TUBBY (With the sounds of U Roy in the back)!
