prior to 1973, there existed in jamaica instrumental takes of songs—b-sides that were labeled “versions” —and vocal-less acetates produced as one-offs for sound systems to give their mic men something to toast over. but there was nothing that fit the radical mixing board athleticism and psychedelic soundscapes that are the trademarks of dub music. by the end of that year, however, the story had radically changed. java java java java broke the first ground of dub. “to my knowledge,” producer clive chin confirms, “and i'm telling this from a true fact, at the time it came out there was no other album like it.” although the debate will probably continue for as long as scholars of jamaican music exist, there is no doubt that java java java java is one of the foundations of dub music.
