Words by LargeUp Crew—

addis-pablo-in-my-fathers-house

If there’s anything we learned about Addis Pablo and his crew Suns of Dub in the last year, it’s that they are prolific. Following a busy 2013 that ended with a Major Lazer-produced mixtape, our Meditations documentary series and a performance with The Roots at the Okayplayer Holiday Jam, Addis is kicking off 2014 with a trio of limited-edition vinyl, pre-release singles, “Walls of Jericho,” “One Love, One Heart, One Family” and “Wareika Mystic,” via Holland’s Jah Solid Rock label.

xterminator-25th-anniversary

Anyone with more than a passing familiarity with dancehall knows the name XTerminator. The record label and production house of the late Philip “Fattis” Burrell played a pivotal role in the careers of Capleton, Luciano, Beres Hammond and Buju Banton, and introduced the world to Sizzla.

LargeUp TV: Addis Pablo Meets The Roots in Brooklyn

Words by Michellee Nelson~OkayPlayer Holiday-Addis-Pablo

Sons of Dub brought the heartical vibes to Monday night’s Okayplayer Holiday Jam. Addis Pablo, son of Augustus Pablo, joined The Roots on stage during the LargeUp-produced “reggae” section of the annual jam session for a performance of Addis’ father Augustus Pablo’s classic “King Tubby’s Meets Rockers Uptown.” First released by the elder Pablo in 1976, the tune was the first dub track to gain popularity outside of Jamaica and to place on international charts. Onstage Monday night Addis was joined by Jah Bami, a colleague of his in the crew Suns of Dub, producing their own version of the mellowed track with James Poyser, Captain Kirk . Watch the performance here, and check out more coverage of the event here.

It was a busy week for Addis and Suns of Dub. In addition to their Holiday Jam performance, Suns of Dub also dropped a mixtape with Major Lazer/Walshy Fire and LargeUp featuring more than 30 tracks (download it here). We also launched his Meditations Pt. 2 video with Jesse Royal, shot in the hills outside of Kingston, Jamaica, by LargeUp/Raw Tings crew Tony Lowe and Taliesin Gilkes-Bower. Addis wrapped up things up with an appearance on the LargeUp Sessions where he added his melodica playing to an epic freestyle session by Bunji Garlin and Jah Bami, flatlining everyone inside Miss Lily’s. Look out for audio and photos from the session on LargeUp shortly. But first…”King Tubby’s Meets Rockers Uptown” live with the Roots!

Addis-Pablo-Meditations-2

The second installment in our Meditations documentary series (check Part 1 here) features some peaceful vibes with Suns of Dub’s Addis Pablo. Addis, son of dub legend Augustus Pablo and heir to his father’s status as reggae’s foremost exponent of the melodica, sat with us in Earl “Chinna” Smith’s yard to share some insight about growing up surrounded with music, and how he carries on his father’s mystic tradition today.
