At Second Avenue Records I found myself unusually attracted to the reggae section. I had become hooked on DUB just from Tubbys Tribute at the covers of the reissued King Tubby lp's there are probably thousands out there. I bought a couple of them and I figured out why I was so drawn to this music. I had heard a lot of reggae with vocals, and I was familiar with modern labels such as On-U Sound, but I hadn't heard old dub.
The late, great King Tubby aka Osborne Ruddock got his start Tubbys Tribute the 60's; he wasn't a musician Tubby wasn't an instrumentalist, as such but he was a recording engineer.
The apocryphal version of the story is that Jamaican dj's needed ways to recycle the same basic music endlessly so that a few records could last Tubbys Tribute a whole dance party. King Tubby took this idea to the next level: he pioneered the music of post-production Tubbys Tribute. Essentially, records 'by' King Tubby consist of Tubby and one of his associate bands, such as the Aggrovators.
The group plays a song, and then King Tubby completes his song through a remix. A few aspects of King Tubby have remained integral to the dub genre: the bass and drums are mixed high in the mix; the melodies are mixed in spordically.
I'm still hooked on this setup. Tubby allowed for the instruments to be controlled via the mixing board by an engineer--who could imply the melody by turning Tubbys Tribute knob, make an instrument echo unexpectedly, or make the whole group sound like they were playing in a concert hall underwater with primitive reverb equipment.
