about

Dub-O-Tron 3000 is one of three concept EPs. The concept being about a robot named Dub-O-Tron 3000 sent from a distant planet to our Earth to unite people in the form of reggae and dub music. Written and recorded in only 45 hours. But don't let the short time fool you, this EP has a lot of depth. "Lub-a-Dub" is reminiscent of early dancehall. Catchy yet simple riddem with a drum sound we all have grown familiar with. Next up is "Dub So Nice" and nice it is. This track is hypnotic and the use of effects make it almost haunting. The delay work sets the tone for impending doom. The Hammond Organ tone is something from a horror movie. But don't get too drawn in, it's time to get back up and dance with the title track "Dub-O-Tron 3000." Our robot's theme song. Elements of the electronic era of reggae, this upbeat number is simple yet laden with massive amounts of reverb and delay. Jim the Boss is a producer, engineer, drummer and organist from Hoboken, NJ. Hoboken is also home of his studio "Studio Two Recordings." Jim started playing reggae in 2008, when he met Gregory Kage (who would go on to work with Studio Two on many other projects) and started playing with a dub trio known as "Soul Minds in Dub" in the streets and subways of NYC. He quickly climbed up the ladder and soon found himself playing with many prominent musicians in the NY reggae scene. He released a few tracks with David Hillyard of The Slackers. His music started to reach across the world and found followings in places like New Zealand, Argentina, Mexico and others, thanks to numerous blog writers, radio stations and podcasters. Jim continues to work with many artists in NY and beyond. He also plays organ in backing bands and for his own artists.
