Super Hi-Fi - Dub To The Bone (out 12/4 on Electric Cowbell)

Super Hi-Fi - Dub To The Bone (out 12/4 on Electric Cowbell)

You might not associate the trombone with the classic dub reggae sounds of Lee “Scratch” Perry, King Tubby, and Scientist. Super Hi-Fi, the Brooklyn-based ‘Afro-Dub’ band led by songwriter-producer-bassist Ezra Gale, is about to change that. Dub To The Bone, the band’s debut album, uses not one but two trombones to create sonic tapestries drenched in ...

The Majesty of King Tubby

Read "The Majesty of King Tubby" reviewed by Lawrence Peryer


King Tubby did not invent dub, but with hundreds—if not thousands—of sides standing witness to his wizardry—he elevated the form to an exalted level. Jamaican dub of the roots reggae era is the direct antecedent of modern remix culture, which today spans music, the visual arts, and even high technology. It is the immediate effect on ...

King Tubby: The Roots of Dub/Dub from the Roots

Read "The Roots of Dub/Dub from the Roots" reviewed by AAJ Staff


If you want to know where hip-hop came from, you can't ignore dub. If you want to check out early rap, you better be aware of toasting. All of those genres are products of the ghetto, inseparably tagged to the African diaspora. (Like most inventions of American popular music, as this blues/jazz/funk/hip-hop lover can readily attest.)

King Tubby: 100% Of Dub

Read "100% Of Dub" reviewed by AAJ Staff


In the world of dub, King Tubby is an icon. He earned credit for getting the ball rolling back in the '70s, bringing reggae music into a hypnotic realm.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
