Unification: From Channel One To King Tubby's

Unification: From Channel One To King Tubby's

by Willi Williams

CD

Overview

Known as the Armagideon Man after the huge success of his 1977 debut single "Armagideon Time," roots/dub producer Willi Williams offered a politically conscious window into the social climate of Jamaica with his heavy rhythms and often doomy commentary. Unification: From Channel One to King Tubby's finds Williams in collaboration with fellow dub-minded producer and performer Yabby You. The 12 tracks that make up the album were recorded in 1979 over the course of several sessions at two of the most famed reggae studios of the day, but never managed to see release in their time. Classic, relentless, and often ominous roots rhythms are the backdrop for Williams' hypnotic vocals, sharing the same type of semi-psychedelic, echo-friendly dub production that appeared on many of the era's best reggae productions. Standout tracks include the submerged pulse of "Armagideon Man," and the boisterous horn section and ahead-of-their-time synth lines of "Rally."
