You just can’t sling record onto the turntable, it has to be selected. Each rhythm coming after a next one has to be directed so that if you play a song with a certain argument you must find a next one with an argument to match the first.” Different philosophical attitudes result in different approaches. Those who have witnessed Jah Shaka and Coxsone in dub conference will know that in following Shaka’s distorted swirling dubonics and sheer physical weight, Coxsone will operate one piece of amp less and maintain a sharpness and a clarity, a kind of “round beat” and initially let the music do the work, before Poppa Festus – the Coxsone Hi-Fl controller– puts on the pressure, injecting the pace in equipment and pioneered the use of echo, reverb, equaliser, and also in paving the way for a sound system such as Shaka to take sound to a new dimension, creating atmosphere out of rhythmic weight and effects. Sound system has come a long way since the days of Lloyd the Matador when upon asking an electronics man named Fred to build him a 600 watt amp, Coxsone was greeted with: “You must be fucking crazy. Do you know how much power it takes to drive a cinema? Ten watts!” tension into the rhythm and building the climax into the dub cuts. Poppa Festus Coxsone at the controls!
