      Phillip Smart

      Meets The Aggrovators At King Tubbys

        Phillip Smart was one of the great engineers to learn his trade as understudy to the legendary dub master himself Osbourne ’King Tubby’ Ruddock. Alongside other luminaires such as Prince Jammy and Scientist, Phillip Smart would step in at the controls when demand for King Tubby studio dubs grew to such an extent that each single release was expected to carry a version / dub on the flipside.

        Phillip Smart moved to the United States in the late 70s and in 1981 opened his successful studio HC&F, in Long Island, New York. It produced some sizeable Jamaican dancehall hits for his two record labels TanYah and Eclipse.

        Tracks like Dirtsman’s ‘Hot This Year’ and ‘Rikers Island’, and most notably Shaggy, used the studio to work up his massive hits ‘Oh Carolina’, ’Big Up’ and ‘Angel’.

        But it’s in the heady days of the early 1970s and up to 1976 that Jamaican Recordings concentrate on for this release. When Version was King and Prince Phillip Smart was at the controls mixing up some fine dubs with Jamaica’s finest musicians The Aggrovators.

        Brass Rockers

          King Tubby and Producer Bunny ‘Striker’ Lee are intertwined in the birth of Dub Music. After discovering a mistake that made a ‘serious joke’ they went on to release the first pressings of this new musical genre namely ‘Dub Music’. Tubby’s vast knowledge of electronics and Bunny’s vast catalogue of rhythms would lay the foundations of what today is taken as a standard...the Remix / Version cuts to an existing vocal tune. Sit back and enjoy this historic set of sounds. These releases were the first to carry the name of King Tubby and the first to credit the great musicians that contributed so much to the rhythms that made these albums possible.
