Set up in 1975 as the house band of the Channel One Studios owned by Joseph Hoo Kim, The Revolutionaries with Sly Dunbar on drums and Robbie Shakespeare on bass, created the new "rockers" style that would change the whole Jamaican sound (from roots reggae to dub) and be imitated in all other productions. Beside Sly and Robbie, many musicians played in the band:
