Various Artists – Channel One Dubs 1974 – 79 (2001)


“The kind of material on Maxfield Avenue Breakdown, recorded from 1974-1979 by the Revolutionaries with Ernest and JoJo Hookim at the Channel One studio controls, may lack the pure sonic invention of a Lee Perry or King Tubby, but it played an equally crucial role in the development of dub. Jamaican recordings from this era introduced the rockers style driven by Robbie Shakespeare’s throbbing bass and Sly Dunbar’s echoed rim-shot clicks and explosive snare shots, which became a fundamental definition of roots reggae. Over that fresh drum and bass foundation, the Hookims keep their dub easy to digest by retaining most of the original song structures and mutating one element at a time.”
