Matthew E. White and the Spacebomb crew crank up the reverb for this special on dub, featuring iconic producer and King Tubby protégé Scientist. Uptown, baby.
Spacebomb in a dub stylee: In this two-hour radio essay, Matthew E. White and his trusted studio collective trace back the everlasting influence of dub reggae on global pop culture. Besides examining classic recordings from Bob Marley & the Wailers, Ken Boothe and Horace Andy, the Spacebomb selectors shed a light on the glorious madness of Lee “Scratch” Perry’s four-track voyages, Augustus Pablo’s reverb-heavy melodics and and King Tubby’s clean cuts. Speaking of which, none other than Tubby’s number one protégé, the enigmatic production legend Scientist, picks up the phone to discuss his studio wizardry. Do not touch that dial.
