Sorry post was delayed, then never made it up because I was down at Lollapalooza. I'll do a post what I thought of Friday the only day I can make it to later probably. For now its Reggae Friday and we are focusing on Lloyd James aka King or Prince Jammy. King Jammy is one of the most famous dub mixers and record producers. You might never guessed as he began building amplifiers and repairing electrical equipment from his mother's house in Waterhouse. After a brief stint in Canada the builder of soundsystems returned to Jamaica and set up his own studio in his in laws home.

Jammy would develop his digital sound, recording and production techniques to go on and work with some of the largest people in dub, roots and dancehall. He produced albums for Black Uhuru, Johnny Osbourne, Dennis Brown, Sizzla, Horace Andy and many others.

Check out a track Jammy produced for Johnny Osbourne (who will certainly be a subject of Reggae Friday down the road).
