General Theory of Dub | GToD Vol 1. Bass is the Most Important Instrument

Wonderful new old dub from General Theory of Dub AKA Timothy Ellis who Jah Shaka is quoted as saying ‘this ain’t no white guy from Warwick’…

Enjoy and dig deeper. Thanks for sharing Tim.

Returning in 2014 with a brand new cassette release ‘Clean Your Head’ This is a ‘clear out’ of the old tunes that are worth a listen…next the intention is to start making new music.

GToD will take the analogue studio into the venue and mix the music live in front of you using multi track tape recorders, analogue mixer, spring reverb and tape delays and more.
That’s original – watch this space.
The tracks on this soundcloud are mostly early to late 80’s with the exception of Brand New Fatty and Claxon Dub which are just a few years old…more coming soon…
For Booking Enquiries:

Bass is the Most Important Instrument was released on cassette tape in 1993 by Chicken Shack. The music was played, produced and recorded by Timothy Ellis between 1982 and 1998 ish…

Dubversion | The Illicit Rebellion of Dub

Dubversion is a collective of reggae musicians including Woody Roots, Sticky Buds, The Powersteppers, Osian MC and Maya Mitten, so our music has a variety of flavours!
We are based in West Wales and Cardiff. Our Dub has an Anti-facist subversive nature but the message is still Peace and Love and Equality. Our roots grow from Ras Tafari, King Soloman and Shiva Shankar. Jah Bless!

Zvuloon Dub System | Anbessa Dub

A quality Reggae and Dub production from “Israel’s number one reggae band”. Lots of horns and driving drum and bass on top of analogue production and tape recording.

“Everything is analogue,” says Smilan. “We take all those old sounds as reference points, we record onto tape. We do it the real way.”

Anbessa Dub, which although not a classic dub album, is filled with the atmosphere of vintage Jamaican roots reggae, mixes old Ethiopian songs arranged in the Zvuloon style, along with some originals, like the opener “Alemitu,” where the arrangement moves smoothly between Lee Perry’s studio and a downtown Addis club in 1973. It’s completely convincing, in part because of the equipment the band uses in its studio.

When Haile Selassie, Emperor of Ethiopia, the man known as Ras Tafari, visited Jamaica on April 21, 1966, more than one hundred thousand Rastafarians were waiting at Kingston Airport to see the man they revered as the Messiah. For a brief moment, still celebrated by the faithful as Grounation Day, the two countries came together. 18 years later, in 1984, an Ethiopian Jewish family, members of the lost tribe of Israel, walked across the desert, making the long trek to their homeland. And now those three cultures – Jamaica, Ethiopia, and Israel – merge on the new album by Tel Aviv-based Zvuloon Dub System, called Anbessa Dub.

Never one to sit on his laurels, he comes with a duology of albums. First ‘Dubcatcher’, then ‘Soulcatcher’ – two sides of one man. Leading with the bass and later in 2014 comes the soul!
