"THE KING OF DUB" (WEBMASTER'S COLUMN)
WWW, November 8 2009 - In today's edition of Dubroom Online we have a review of Gregory Isaac's "warning". It was produced by King Tubby in what was then a time wherein the digital technology entered the Jamaican Studio's.
It's a side of King Tubby that not many people know of, at least, not many would associate the King Of DUB with digital Dancehall in the tradition that one of his apprentices would make popular with the Sleng-Teng riddim.
Unfortunately, though, we will never know just what King Tubby would eventually have done, as he was in that time also planning to build his own studio where he could factually record musicians.
A bullet from a gun made an end to his life, before we could know...
One Love, Give Thanks,
