Born in Barbados, Dennis Bovell moved to south London at the age of 12 and by his late teens had started a musical trajectory that over 40+ years has profoundly influenced Britain’s roots, lovers rock, soundsystem and dub cultures.

As a musician, songwriter and producer, Bovell spearheaded the seminal British reggae acts Linton Kwesi Johnson and Matumbi and was notably involved in the late 70’s UK punk/post-punk scene as the producer for The Slits, The Pop Group and Orange Juice. Dennis has also worked with Marvin Gaye, Ryuchi Sakamoto, Fela Kuti and most recently Joss Stone.

Both under his own name and the moniker “Blackbeard,” Dennis has created a striking oeuvre of dub albums (“I Wah Dub,” “Strictly Dub Wize,” “LKJ in Dub”) and has been involved with countless dub mixes and dubwise collaborations.

“Dub 4 Daze” is an album that deeply mines Bovell’s inspired catalog of rhythms and sounds. It is a richly animated sonic journey that slips and slides between soulful roots (Eye Water), down-tempo brass (Top Level Dub), 3D mysticism (Jah Man Dub) and space echo abstractions (Physics of Dub).

The album showcases a plethora of top-flight reggae musicians including guitarist John Kpiaye (Matumbi, LKJ), drummer Jah Bunny (LKJ, Jah Shaka, Augustus Pablo) and vocalist Errol Campbell.
