ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
The Steady Ups represent some if the finest examples of traditional rocksteady/reggae music from Jamaica. Originating from Sacramento, CA, the ten piece band was rocking dance floors in the mid nineties. This year brings a retro release of "Steady Ups vs Doctor Echo - Dub Disaster". As the final mixes have been simmering in celestial realms of time's musical integrity tester, this release comes out the gate with 11 tracks of the hottest moments of the confrontation between the doctor and the band. This collection represents the original lineup of the Steady Ups crew including Tyler Pope on guitar, Justin DeHart on drums, and Susan Foley on keys. As the third release from the doctor, this album continues to exemplify the doctor's organic mixing style and production techniques. Many of the original versions of the dubs on the album have not been released elsewhere, and serve to give listeners a fresh experience of some of the band's most exciting early recorded repertoire.

“…this reworking of steady ups tunes is 11 slabs of smoked out dub joy.”
Rough Trade

“…crazy dubwise love…miles ahead of those produced by most other aspiring American reggae producers…Recommended to all fans of classic dub.”
All-Music Guide

“The Doctor is back…fusing the tight rhythmic energy of the Steady Ups with his uncompromising dub style in this solid CD which can only be described as a dub gem.”
Subsonic Temple

“…a number tracks on Dub Disaster could easily be mistaken for vintage rocksteady dub from Treasure Isle or Studio One. It's that good! Very organic, with well-done (but not overdone) effects. And the drums & bass combine to make a very heavy, unified sound. This album will certainly become a regular on the Echo Chamber!”
Dr. Strange Dub

“The collection brings some true gems…Trust us, you will love this album.”
