Words by Michellee Nelson~Screen shot 2014-02-13 at 2.13.26 PM

You won’t hear fans of Addis Pablo and Suns of Dub complain about a shortage of entertaining content and music from the crew. The group, along with Jah Solid Rock, have just released a documentary to follow up their upcoming album (which you can preview here) recently released album In My Father’s House on the label. The 38-minute film is directed by Kush I, director of Jah 9’s “Steamers,” and Jesse Royal’s “Modern Day Judas” videos.

The In My Father’s House documentary features interviews with a number of different artists and musicians including legendary guitarist Earl “Chinna” Smith, who has worked closely with Suns of Dub and also played alongside Addis’ father, Augustus Pablo, at the height of his career.
