” King Tubby Salute “

Picture 4

KING TUBBY is one of my main inspirations when it comes to music..It’s a shame he doesn’t get the proper shines that he deserves, because he was a genius on many levels…

1…He INVENTED the low pass filter technique – which was adopted by many Hip Hop producers many years later and actually defined a certain aesthetic from the early to mid 90’s…

2…He might not have been the originator of DUB, but he pushed it to soaring levels and turned DUB into an actual art form in my opinion…

3..A trained electrician and repairman, TUBBY even went as far as building his own radio transmitter…

4…Helped guide and jump start the careers of SCIENTIST, KING JAMMY, PAT KELLY, BUNNY LEE, PHILLIP SMART, and many others…

5.. King Tubby’s Hi-Fi sound system was the first to unleash reverb on the general public…..

I could go on and on, but I will stop there and let DAVID RODIGAN go further in-depth about the life and times of a true innovator….DONT SLEEP…

RIP- Osbourne “KING TUBBY” Ruddock, (28 January 1941 – 6 February 1989) ..
