WWW, March 2008 - Time for a deep excursion into King Tubby's Time in the first episode of a crucial two-part series on the Godfather and (thus) King of DUB. Time for a Tribute to the King who was so brutally shot to death about two decades ago.

Unlike Channel One and Studio One, King Tubby's studio did not have a studio band. There was simply no place for it. He did record singers and DJ's, though, and most of all: thousands and thousands of DUB Remixes.

The original multi-track tapes were taken to him by countless of producers, who would record the music in one of the other studio's. But without the mark of the King of DUB, no self-respecting producer could release their music, or so it seemed back in the days.

Tubby's Time takes us back to that time. A time before there was a mention of electronica and automated mixing boards, even though the engineers at King Tubby's dreamt about them. Deep, deep DUB in a time wherein everyone was still a pioneer and King Tubby was still living to rule them all...
