Roots Records kicks off a brand new series of releases where they’re asking DJs to dig through their old dub and early dancehall seven and twelve inches to come up with a personal musical journey.

The Hit Sound of The Dub Pistols at Midnight RockThe first release – 'The Hit Sound of The Dub Pistols at Midnight Rock' – revolves around the Midnight Rock and Hit Sound labels, run by Jah Thomas and U-Brown respectively.

The compiling has been conducted by Barry Ashworth from The Dub Pistols. He has selected 14 tunes from singers and deejays such as Al Campbell, U-Brown and Ranking Toyan.

“I loved the opportunity to go back through some of those early, pre-digital dancehall classics and throw so many of them together on this album - I'm a massive fan of Jah Thomas and it was a great opportunity to listen to so much of his work and fashion it into an album. Can I do a volume two?” says Barry Ashworth.

'The Hit Sound of The Dub Pistols at Midnight Rock' was released on digital platforms on August 22nd.
