Capital Letters | Jamaica Dub

On the excellent Sugar Shack Records, this is a wicked Dub version of the acclaimed Capital Letters album Wolverhampton album dubbed and mixed by Oldwah coming soon on CD and Digital Download – 16TH October 2015

With such fantastic reviews and an equally positive reaction from fans, we decided not to delay any longer with the release of the album’s dub counterpart “Wolverhampton in Dub”. For this version, we shine the spotlight on mixing engineer and Sugar Shack regular Dave ‘Oldwah’ Sandford who was given free reign and has produced something to be proud of.

Dave was really looking forward to mixing this album as in his words; “the quality of the recordings engineered by Noel Brown were superb as was the musicianship from Capital Letters. Even working on the vocal tracks I sort of knew what I was going to do and kept all the ideas locked in my head.” For Dave the dub mixes gave him the opportunity to make something out of the secondary instruments: “The harmless little clav stabs can suddenly be expanded, the mild refrain of a flute can be worked on to become a major part of a track giving an eeriness over a stripped down drum and bass. On “Thanks and Praise” the picking guitar really got to me, so catchy and insistent so it was used to the maximum, making it the featured instrument.”

“I had a free licence, so if I wanted the kick drum to sound like a wrecking ball demolishing a building I could and DID. I wanted the rhythm guitar to kick like a knife, the bass to pound your stomach and the bubble organ to sound like a mutant dragon breathing. On these dubs I just went with what I wanted to hear, of course there are the norms for dub albums, but I wanted to take it further, trying to do things that haven’t been done. That’s a difficult thing to do as the path is well trodden.”

Hidden Operator | Higher Than the Mountain 7″

Some crucial new tunes on the new King’s Chamber label – Hidden Operator brings a heavy modern dub aesthetic. Check it.


HIDDEN OPERATOR – Higher Than the Mountain (7”, KC01)

Introducing Hidden Operator with this first release on Kings Chamber.
While his gritty version of dub, digital and dancehall is rooted in the tradition of the old days, it’s also heavily influenced by contemporary sounds and always pushing things forward.

Hidden Operator use found sounds, samples of forgotten vocalists and occasional ghosts, to make otherworldly smoke filled dub versions on tracks that may not had ever existed.

On “Higher Than the Mountain” he lets his primitive dub tools loose over a chanting ragga coloured number.

On the B-side Arctic Haiti cooks up a nightmarish voodoo version.
