One Dub Fire Special (SJRCD 324 - 2016)
Just Can’t Dub
Meet 7 Million
|"Like shattered glass, shards of sound,
displaced through time and place, dub is the science + technology of
sound. Powerful and unstable creations that produce imaginary landscapes
in the mind, visions of false memory and loss, separation and
regeneration. Studio One, the heartbeat, the pulse of
reggae, its essence travelling light years across generations,
continents, chronologies, revisited, replayed, born-again, phoenix-like,
spectre-like, omnipresent. The Dub Specialist suspends times, creates
longing and melancholy as traces of human voice occasionally cascade
down in the spaces between drum and bass.
Dub Fire Special brings you here 18 dub tracks that enter through the gates of humanity itself, straight into your heart, your very soul, mind + body as one, down-time experiments created in the Brentford Road studio sound laboratory, exploring the latest technologies to create the most fundamental and primal of emotions. Like a million dancehalls scattered across the Kingston cloudless nightscape, sounds pulsate, reverberate, echo through broken melodies, distilled to their very essence.
Water, air, fire + sound; analogue and digital technologies; ska, rocksteady, dub + dancehall; all is one - Studio One, the source, the foundation, the living soul of music.
Special thanks: Jackie Mittoo, Richard Ace, Earl 'Bagga' Walker, Cedric Brooks, Dennis Campbell, Leroy Sibbles, Eric Frater, Leroy 'Horsey', Freddie McGregor and all the other musicians who have contributed in making this album."
