It A Go Dread: Equiknoxx introduces Masicka to King Tubby

Words by Deejay Theory —

artworks-000050335536-rw5yqz-originalWhat happens when you cut razor sharp new school flow over timeless dub versions? You get this wicked new combination from bussing young Portmore, JA artist Masicka and iconic dub producer and pioneer King Tubby. Any reggae collector has a King Tubby tape in their archives, and it’s refreshing to see a youth like Masicka paying tribute with this seven-track “old to the new” session produced by JA powerhouse Equiknoxx Music. It’s not all about guns and girls—sometimes you need to dig into the roots for inspiration…nicely done on all fronts. Stream four of the seven tracks below, download the full EP here. Pree the video from the sessions for full effect.

Sound Geography: Time Out London Notting Hill Carnival Map

Words by Jesse Serwer

After some concern that it might be canceled this year on the heels of recent rioting in London, the annual Notting Hill Carnival will go on as planned this Sunday and Monday, Aug. 28 and 29. As anyone who’s been to the Europe’s biggest Caribbean fete will attest, navigating the streets for the top sounds and foods can be a bit tricky. Those attending this year’s event then should applaud Time Out London (AKA the “OG” Time Out) for putting together an extensive guide to this year’s carnival.

Words by Jesse Serwer


Donovan “Don Corleon” Bennett’s Dub in HD, out today on iTunes, Amazon and other online music retailers, is the first dub album by a major Jamaican producer that we’ve heard of in years. Corleon, the producer behind some of the largest riddims of the last decade, told us the project is meant not as a money-making proposition but specifically to expose the next generation of reggae/dancehall fans and producers to the sound and technique. We quizzed Corleon about the project, but–this being Toppa Top 10 Tuesdays and all—first we asked him to break down some of his all-time favorite dub LPs.
