King Tubby’s and Channel One, two of the great studios that produced so many of
the great reggae rhythms in Kingston, Jamaica, find themselves for one night only,
battling it out for the trophy.

King Tubby’s (b.Osbourne Ruddock,194, Kingston, Jamaica) studio was set up at
18 Drummile Avenue, Kingston Jamaica. His fascination with all things electronic
grew out of working and repairing Radios and TV sets and the lucrative work of
winding transistors. A job that was much in demand in the 1970’s in Jamaica.
This work gave Tubby a great understanding of sound, how it worked and how it
could be manipulated. Encouraged and helped along by producer Bunny ‘Striker’ Lee
and with access to Bunny’s ever growing master tapes, that were stored at Tubby’s
studio. Dubplates were made to supply the sound systems of Kingston and in fact
Tubby’s own Hometown Hi-Fi sound.

Channel One studios grew from the Hookim brothers Joseph ‘Joe Joe’ and Ernest’s
business of running jukebox and one arm bandit distribution across the Jamaican island.
They wanted to expand into the recording world and again Bunny Lee was at hand to
test out the studio setup and fine tune its sound. Cutting the first ever sessions at the
studio and pairing the great drum and bass duo Sly Dunbar and Robbie Shakespeare
together for the first time.

So who would be better placed to compare the Dub Soundclash from the two great
studios than Bunny Lee himself. Throwing rhythms over at Channel One who had
enlisted the great DJ Jah Stitch to return the fire.

So sit back and enjoy two great institutions of the reggae sound,
battling it out for supremacy.

The winner?... we will leave that decision up to the listener.
But in this Dub Soundclash there is no loser..

All Killer.. No Filler… Enjoy
