Dub Gone Crazy by Steve Barrow (Perfect Sounds Forever). "...Today the remix and dub version are commonplace in popular music; less widely appreciated is the fact that these techniques were pioneered in a tiny studio at 18 Dromilly Avenue in the Kingston district called Waterhouse. That pioneer of dub was an electronics engineer and sound system operator named Osbourne Ruddock, but to the crowds who flocked to his dances, and the countless singers and record producers who utilised his skills, he was known as King Tubby."
Trailer (QuickTime Video) for Dub Echoes. "...The film shows how the Jamaican invention called dub ended up influencing much of the music we hear today, from electronic music to hip-hop, transforming the studio in a musical instrument and giving way to all of sonic experiments."
Echo Chamber - Tuff Gong & Tubby Tribute, 2009 with Dr. StrangeDub & DJ Baby Swiss... Part 1 | Part 2 | Part 3. "...The Echo Chamber's annual 'Tuff Gong & Tubby Tribute' honoring Robert Nesta Marley (born 2/6/1945) and Osbourne Ruddock (died 2/6/1989). One man a legend the world round. The other, a legend in the reggae world, and a permanent influence upon recording studio techniques and technology. Of course, nearly all the tunes tonight were from Bob Marley & the Wailers, or King Tubby productions."
