Two tracks taken from 2 x 10" EPs released by Don Corleon on his eponymous label in 2011. If you like heavy duty dub sessions then seek out these records if still available, otherwise check the cd called Dub in HD, which features the same tough tunes.


From United Reggae's notes:

Jamaican producer Don Corleon -- famous for mellow riddims such as Changes and Seasons -- has just put out hard hitting dub album consisting of ten tunes.

The selection ranges from the tough Ghetto Life in Dub on a relick of the Baltimore riddim to the softer Drop Leaf riddim.

The Don has ripped apart the tunes, put emphasis on the bass and the drums and then put them together again. His usual polished style is nowhere to be found and this album certainly showcases a brand new sound from this acclaimed producer.

'Dub in HD', as the album is titled, has a contemporary sound and Don Corleon has stated that he used Pro Tools when mixing the tunes. He has managed to put a whole new level of energy in the songs, something that gives them new character and new life.

Jamaica has not been in the forefront when it comes to dub in the last ten years or so. It would be great if other young Jamaican producers took interest in one of the foundational reggae genres, and a genre that has influenced several artists in other genres, most notably in the house and electronica vein.

Please let this album be the beginning of a new trend.
