I only expect the best from Habibi Funk, and I am not disappointed. Ahmed Ben Ali is a Libyan musician who combines North African music with dub and reggae sensibilities. Four tracks of bumping groove.
Powerful, punchy dub for the master of the genre, Lee “Scratch” Perry, courtesy of the legendary On-U Sound record label. Amazing to hear this in such a heavy, clear recording. My poor neighbors…
Ronnie Davis once led legendary reggae act The Tennors, but he also cut a few sweet-sounding singles, like this one where he partnered with bandmate George ‘Clive’ Murphy. Mellow, relaxing reggae for a calm, grey Sunday morning.
The dubby sounds of King Tubby are blasting away tonight, either terrorizing my poor roommates or making converts out of them. I’ll find out tomorrow.
Rather decent dub from one of the best in the genre, King Tubby.
