If any one individual can be credited with being the catalyst for English reggae and dub then Dennis Bovell is that man. From the mid seventies onwards he has been at the centre of the English reggae scene. Pressure Sounds have now gathered sixteen of Dennis' must have rare dubs and instrumentals as well as a couple of outstanding vocal tracks on one essential album.
'Decibel' brings together some of his heaviest productions out for the first time since their original release in the mid-seventies on Dennis' 'Rama' and 'More Cut' labels.
Dennis also produced many dub plates and specials that have never been heard outside of sound system dances and several of these dubs are also featured on 'Decibel'.
At the same time as he was producing and playing bass on these records he was doing the same in the band Matumbi and also produced the UK National number one 'Silly Games' by Janet Kay.
