20/03/2015, Paul PLEDGER

King Tubby protege Scientist knew a thing or two about dubbing in the '70s and '80s - he knocked out enough albums to prove the point, most of which were dark chest-rumbling escapades beyond the mixing desk borne out of street dances and smoke-filled bars. Jah Life, King Tubby, Radics and Scientist himself became synonymous with hard-hitting studio sessions, both for themselves and as guest mixers for reggae royalty.

One lesser-known artist was the no-less important Flick Wilson whose School Days album forms the basis of the dubs here. Culled from various 1980's sessions and studio lock-ins, The Dub Album They Didn't Want You To Hear is an exemplary exercise in authentic Jamaican roots-reggae enriched by Scientist's deft manipulation of mixing-desks and echo-chambers - the man's a monster. Facts Of Dub and Where Wicked Gonna Dub are as good as it gets - effortless neck-nodders from the caverns of Channel 1, simple in structure yet relentless in rhythm.

Mercifully devoid of digi-dub and cheap modular rhythms, The Dub Album is as near-perfect a half-hour of dub-music that you can get with the Roots Radics Band at the top of their game. Timeless.

You know, art, music and visuals are the package, they are one big thing, they belong to each other. I try to find the jigsaw pieces to paint a all in all picture.
