Creation Rebel – “Rising Star” (1978)

October 18, 2008 at 2:46 am (Dub, Jamaican Music)

The experimental dub album Dub from Creation, the debut release from Creation Rebel, is a sonic tour de force. Dating from 1978 on the Hitrun label, it was way ahead of its time, with its weird sounds and electronic feel. Still sounds amazing when using headphones.
Co-produced by Dennis Bovell. Creation Rebel were basically “The Arabs” who backed the legendary Prince Far I.
