In 2013 Equiknoxx Music, which produced Dancehall hits like Aidonia's "Sky Daggering" and Spice's "Jim Screechie"
comes back with new project which combines the talent of 21 year old Masicka and legendary dub rhythms of the great King Tubby.
Dub music has had a very short period in Jamaican music history, and nowadays most of young Jamaicans don't have an idea
how powerful influence on various musical styles from over the world the Dub music had.
This EP titled Equiknoxx Introduces Masicka To King Tubby gives great opportunity to expose the legacy of great King of Dub to the young generation of Dancehall fanatics around the world, who might have missed that part of Jamaican music history.
The modern flow of Masicka fits with the rhythms recorded in the seventies in a perfect way proving one more time that the legacy of the King is here to stay forever.
Gavin Blair, Producer at Equiknoxx Music, recently said in an Hot102 Fm interview that " the idea came to him after waking up to a King Tubby CD he had left playing in the deck one night, he quickly established that the rhythms had the right amount of space and grove for Masicka's fast flow, he immediately text the artiste and his manager to come to the studio to record the project "
It was also informed to us by the producer that the project took roughly two nights to record, with preliminary introduction and listening session on the first night and then recording of seven (7) freestyles and existing songs on the the second night.
