KING OF THE ZULU TRIBE




If there's one thing to be said about Norman Grant it's that he knows how to give a dub a good seeing to. Dubwise he first came to our attention via dubs and toasts released on Grounation on 7" singles. Then after signing to Front Line he came up with "Jahovia Dub", one of the longest pieces of music ever placed on a 12" disco. And it's only fitting that this album should contain a mix of that dub. As it's one of dub's finest moments. I seem to recall that Michael Dan had a hand in that mix. And his name is mentioned on the album's sleeve. But the main mix on this album goes to the Mad Professor and Jah Shaka. Both of whom have rapidly gained quite a reputation for mixing dub. Shaka is like a wild man on his syndrum mixed through an echo unit. It's a much better effect than the siren which was used far too much on his own "Commandments Of Dub". Space and time is what dub needs. This dub album has both. A good seeing to.
