ERNEST HOO-KIM - VITAL DUB
The brothers Ernest and Joe Hoo-Kim entered the Jamaican Music Industry through their works with Jukeboxes and "one-armed bandits". They would soon become synonymous with some of the hardest Rockers Reggae in the history of Reggae.

Time-warp back into the early 1970's. In a time wherein the rest of the world was still dealing with the Beatles, Reggae Music had already taken over Jamaica and was about to take over the rest of the world.

The Hoo-Kim brothers decided they had enough of the jukebox and gambling business: They took everything they had and built a Studio.

The name?

Channel One!

It didn't take the brothers too long before they were major players in the Jamaican Music business and even though their names are not that well-known, they will forever be associated with some of the heaviest Roots Rock Reggae ever released.

This was the Studio where Sly and Robbie played the Drum and Bass on two subsequent Studio Bands. Where many, many Dubs have been mixed. Where many vocalists have recorded some of their best work!

VITAL DUB showcases some of the best Dubs from a time wherein Frontline Records was driving the genre to the top of the alternative charts in the UK.

The majority of tracks are DUB mixes from the Mighty Diamonds "Right Time" Album. A number of tunes have also been used on Dillinger's classic CB 200, by the way.

In itself, the album was part of a true flood of Jamaican DUB releases during the late 1970's. VITAL DUB was among the most successful in the genre that would form the foundation of so much contemporary electronic Dance music.
