Dub Poetry

"Grab and Flee" (Jah Live's Foundation, 1990)
performed by Dr. Gabre Selassie is categorized as dub poetry. Dub poetry is a genre of reggae where speaking is done over a rhythm track. The upful vocals by Dr. Gabre over hypnotic synths on top of a heavy digital roots riddim sure makes this an interesting piece. There is no version on side b. listen
