2/8/2012 Echo Chamber


On February 6, 1945 Robert Nesta Marley was born in the small village of Nine Mile in Jamaica. Forty-four years later, on February 6, 1989 the great dubmaster King Tubby was senselessly murdered in Kingston. One man had become a legend the world round. The other was a legend in the reggae world, and a permanent influence upon recording studio techniques and technology. Two men very far apart...but two men true to their roots.

Tonight the Echo Chamber proudly presented our annual "Tribute to Tuff Gong & Tubby" special. Three hours of great roots and dub from the masters Bob Marley and King Tubby, and many friends... From dubs to remixes, and cover versions and tribute songs, we had quite a mix of great music. Among the friends were Derrick Harriott (who also was born on 2/6), Wailers & I-Threes including Peter Tosh, Bunny Wailer, Judy Mowatt, and Aston Familyman Barrett, Lee Perry, Black Uhuru, Horace Andy, Dean Fraser, Prince Wadada, Youssou N'dour, Corrine Bailey Rae, Mara Hruby, Lone Ranger, Bill Laswell, Dub Oracle, CeU, Tone396, Chin Dub, Marissa Lindsay, Lyn Taitt, Monty Alexander, Seven Dub, Chin Dub, Sinead O'Connor, The Skatalites, David Hillyard, and Ike Bennett.
