SOUL JAZZ RECORDS PRESENTS - STUDIO ONE SPACE-AGE DUB SPECIAL (VARIOUS ARTISTS) VINYL (2LP)
Release Date: 24th March 2023
"Studio One Space-Age Dub Special’ is a brand new Studio One release on Soul Jazz Records which draws on more rare and classic dubs taken from the mighty vaults of Studio One Records. Most of these tracks are taken from Studio One’s superb long out-of-print series of dub albums released between 1974 and 1980, such as ‘Zodiac Sounds’, ‘Ital Sounds and System’, ‘Roots Dub’, ‘Dub Store Special’, ‘Juks Incorporation’ and others. Many of these classic dub albums were originally released only in Jamaica in short- run pressings with special silk-screen printed sleeves, all with striking minimal designs, and which now fetch many, many hundreds of pounds. These tracks, credited to the Dub Specialist, use the original music tracks to seminal Studio One rhythms, which are broken down, reconstructed, and manipulated using the studio mixing desk as an instrument. With these albums, producer Clement Dodd and engineer Sylvan Morris helped create some of the finest dubs ever known."
