Massive selection and mix from the one and only Dr. StrangeDub’s excellent Echo Chamber radio show - tune in every week for broadcasts like this – pleasing the deepest dubheads from around the world.
A very special night in the Echo Chamber as we did a “Land of the Rising Sun” special honoring Japanese reggae, dub, ska, and more… But, for the first hour of the program we covered some new non-Japanese releases – from Talisman (on Sugar Shack), Med Dred (on Dub-o-phonic), Svaha Sound System, Omegaman (on Fort Knox), Trevor “The Technician” McKenzie & Robert C., and M.L.K. & the Breadwinners (on Freedom Fighter).

This is very cool – not easy – but cool and there are many more musicians and producers sharing crucial dub production like this on youtube.
Like it? Don’t like it? Too complicated? Let us know in the comments!
disrupt (Jahtari) making a riddim with a MIDIBOX SID synth and a modded Korg Monotron Delay (it’s now in a rack, has proper knobs and cool new extras). Drums and some FX sounds from the SID have been sampled into the MPC1000 before. Bass, Skanks and Arp are all frm the SID.
If you want to understand an important part of Jamaican music culture you need to listen to a lot of 45s. Unfortunately due to the popularity of the format so many were made that never made it to a re-issue or compilation LP or CD. Fortunately for us there are some great collectors out there who write great blogs and create great mixes who are willing to share mixes of their collection with us.
Here are four great blogs all run by passionate enthusiastic lovers of Jamaican music. By no means a comprehensive list and these blogs will, in turn, lead you to hundreds of more blogs – but just four that we really enjoy and respect.
Enjoy – dub.com
Dave is a passionate collector of all things Jamaica & 45 – Ska, Rocksteady, Reggae and on..
I have been writing about music in various forms (zines, newspapers, e-zines, blogs) since the mid-80′s. The Funky16Corners blog started in November of 2004 to focus on funk and soul vinyl. Since mid-2006, in addition to individual MP3 tracks, I have been posting mixes under the title Funky16Corners radio. Most MP3s and mixes will be available for a few weeks.
My house of reggae is in London and I invite you in for a cup of tea while I play Jamaican music throughout the decades from scorchin’ ska through roots rockers to the latest dancehall sounds and adding a few background details along the way in celebration and recognition of all the talented people who have contributed to one of the liveliest music cultures in the world. So don’t hold back, come on in, kick your shoes off and enjoy the music…
As a life long fan of Jamaican Music I thought I would use this site to share some of the highlights of my collecting ,this will usually consist of a compilation CD of some of my collection which consists mainly of 7″ singles ,the very lifeblood of JA music.I hope this will give other people an opportunity to hear some great music that they would not hear otherwise.

Discovered this great album via our old pal Tomas @ voltage music on bandcamp. Here’s an excerpt we like but please be sure to read the entire piece – Great music and great writing.
Like original dub music, Gaudi’s music takes the listener between the bass lines, leaving space for the nuance and color in his productions to emerge. He’s decided that while the computer offers endless synth, sample and rhythmic layering possibilities, often you can say more with less. “With all of the plug-ins and effects, the result is a wall of sound,” he explains. “There’s no time for the brain to filter it out. With the dub producers as a reference, I give the same importance to the silence between the notes as the notes themselves. I try to not oversaturate my sound with a thousand elements. That, to me, is an art nowadays. Music is beautiful, but silence is just as beautiful.”

Not strictly dub, but if you have a love for dub you need to know the congo natty history.. massive selection from the Congo Natty label going back 20+ years
We told you that Congo Natty aka Rebel MC was more than a legend and now it’s time to prove it. For your listening pleasure the one and only Uncle Dugs (Rinse FM) has compiled a mix that takes the listener all the way through Mikail Tafari’s career, from the early Rebel MC & Double Trouble days right up to the last few years.
Seventy eight minutes charting the birth and development of Jungle, the mix works as a perfect taster for the forthcoming Congo Natty opus, “Jungle Revolution.” With the buzz around first single “UK Allstars” still very much in the air and a record to follow which delivers on Tafari’s reputation as a pioneer, a fearless social commentator and a righteous Rastaman, this potted history of his career should be the perfect taster. Get it now before we take it down again – the wickedest sound!
