Dubbin’ With King Jammy

Jason Gubbels, who has done an admirable job as the world critic over at Rhapsody, highlights the work from one of Jamaica’s greatest and generally overlooked producers, King Jammy. As Jason points out, King Jammy has played a great influence on at least two eras of reggae. He was the dub master at King Tubby’s studio during the ’70s, and then later basically invented dancehall in 1985 with his single for Wayne Smith, “Under Me Sleng Teng.” This is a very enjoyable playlist featuring everyone from Black Uhuru to Shabba Ranks.
