Description

Stones Throw and the Los Angeles-based reggae club night Dub Club have joined forces to release a scorching compilation of all new recordings by Jamaican sound system legends entitled Dub Club: Foundation Come Again.

Since 2000, Dub Club has carved out an indelible presence in the worldwide reggae scene – drawing huge crowds each week to check out the best artists from Jamaica perform alongside the venerable Dub Club DJs. The man behind the night and Foundation Come Again is Tom Chasteen, who over the last twenty years has been making waves not only as a club promoter, but also as a DJ and producer.

It was a revelation for Chasteen when he discovered that the artists who made the classic reggae 45s he was playing each week were still out there and ready to perform. He started tracking them down and flying them in to Los Angeles to play at the Dub Club.

Chasteen, along with Jamaican artist Tippa Lee, jointly produced Foundation Come Again. Each track is a new recording featuring dancehall icons that have be graced the stage of the celebrated Dub Club. The tracks were recorded over several years in both LA and Jamaica. A hand picked band of LA-based reggae musicians tracked a long list of thumping instrumentals under Chasteen’s direction before the vocal contributions were added in Jamaica. Tippa Lee recorded many of the vocals during one trip to Kingston where he rounded up the “who’s who” of rarely heard sound system legends for some marathon sessions at Mixing Lab studios. Well-known in Kingston, Lee made his first recording at King Tubby’s studio at the age of 12, and had a Jamaican #1 hit in the ’80s with “No Trouble We”. He contributes the standout “Hey Mr. Big Man” here.

This spring and early summer Stones Throw released two discs of dub versions from Foundation Come Again tracks. These two sets were mixed straight to tape by Tom Chasteen, released on vinyl with hand-printed covers.
