King Tubby

Another addition to the MBMS Page of Fame that should have been added long ago is King Tubby, the godfather of dub.

If you are not familiar with King Tubby, and have an hour or so to spare, then you should listen to this documentary about him, and dub music in general, it is most excellent.

Unfortunately The King is no longer with us, he was murdered in 1989, but his music is absolutely timeless, and the techniques he came up with are still being used in music today.
