This music video, King Tubby Meets Rockers Uptown, is for a theremin cover, by Makmed the Miller, of a classic dub track.
‘King Tubby Meets Rockers Uptown’ was a classic dub collaboration between Augustus Pablo and King Tubby. This arrangement for theremin is by Makmed the Miller. Although there is an ‘untouchable’ quality to classic tunes that makes them uncoverable, it’s worth remembering that the tune itself was a dub remix of the original song ‘Baby I Love You So’ by Jacob Miller (no relation to Makmed).So it has a history of being ‘touched’.
Makmed the Miller is a founder member of Forgotten Fish Memory Orchestra.
