About

In the early 1970s came a new sound in reggae: spooky, haunting, and often eccentric minor key instrumentals featuring an exotic instrument, the melodica. It became known as the "Far East Sound". Young Augustus Pablo soon became famous for his distinctive music that seemed to come from another time and place – even more so when King Tubby got hold of the tapes. Even though Pablo is synonymous with the Far East sound, he wasn't the only one responsible for it – producers Clive Chin, Leonard Chin, and Herman Chin-Loy all played a role in shaping the vibes. So even though I am at the controls west of the River Nile, this is a deep selection of Far East music.
