Dub: Red Hot vs Ice Cold - Richard Skinner

Second book by Noch

From growing up in Trinidad in the late 1960s, Richard Skinner recalls the first time he was infected by those languid rhythms we call Dub.

From there, he charts a compelling history of the genre; from Kingston and the rise of King Tubby, to the Dub music that reshaped black communities across Britain in the 1990s.
