Synopsis

Album Description
Using roots reggae rhythms as his very basic skeleton grid, Digital K takes studio remixing and sampling into new froniers of hip hop, house and acid jazz, creating a "window" towards a new genre that is very beat & rhythm oriented and very hardcore! This is tribal Africa-derived, reggae roots-driven, passionate, alienated "black music" - as close to the street as it gets. A modern urban dub.From the All Music Guide:
Although his roots are in reggae/dub, Digital K uses his studio and remixing expertise to expand into different musical styles, heard on King Tubby's in the House. While it's very rhythmic-oriented, the album's compositions are a mix of hip-hop, house, and acid jazz, with reggae's trademark off-time beats and vocal samples being a nice final touch. The upbeat opener, "King Tubby's Dub," and sets the tone for the rest of the album, which is followed by the just-as-intriguing "Dancehall Jazz Dub," "Piano Dub," and "Alice Dub." Three bonus tracks are added to the end of the CD ? remixes of "Tubby's Dub," "Speed Dub," and a "Digital Distortion Mix" of "Gangsta Dub," which all successfully expand on the album's original versions.
