King Tubbyโ€™s

Established in 1970 by Jamaican teen Cecil Rennie, King Tubbyโ€™s sound system celebrates 45 years in the business this year and is still going strong. King Tubby’s, which is named for the legendary Jamaican engineer by that name but had no direct affiliation with him, were among the first to introduce dubplate specials (one-off exclusives) at their live sessions, which makes them trail-blazing trendsetters, by anyoneโ€™s standards. London reggae events that truly desire to be considered even half-credible usually ensure that their patrons dub it to Tubbyโ€™s; catch them by Powis Gardens this weekend.
