Win a copy of Alborosie’s Back-A-Yard Dub vinyl LP, courtesy of VP Records and The Reggae PodClash. The album is a strictly instrumental dub mix of the acclaimed Wailing Souls album Back-A-Yard, which he produced last year. Back-A-Yard Dub features a rhythm section anchored by Roots Radics bassist Errol ‘Flabba’ Holt and recorded at Alborosie’s Shengen Studio in Kingston, Jamaica.
Back-A-Yard Dub showcases Alborosie’s love for the Jamaican remix craft, utilizing the spectrum of vintage gear he has collected over the years. “Dub is the alternate universe of reggae, and I love exploring every aspect and detail of my music by making dub mixes,” explains Alborosie. “Having collected original gear and working with King Jammy over the years, I have a new level of appreciation for what the original masters were able to do.”
Alborosie’s attention to detail has also earned him the respect of the original dub masters like King Jammy, who was instrumental in advancing the dub genre in the 1970s and 80s: “It’s been a pleasure to watch Alborosie progress in his production and mixing skills over the years. He is one of the ultimate students of our music, and I’m proud to have worked with him while he has grown into the culture. Each dub album he puts out is worth listening to.”
Back-A-Yard Dub precedes the release of Alborosie’s forthcoming studio album, For The Culture, set for June 2021 release, on which Wailing Souls’ are featured in a remake of their 1979 hit “Jah Give Us Life.”
