TRINITY
DUBROOM NET LABEL ARTIST DESCRIPTION

WWW, August 2014 - Anyone even remotely familiar with the Dubroom and it's editor knows about the admiration for Yabby You. The Original Jesus Dread. Jesus Dread, also the title of Trinity's big-up of Yabby You. Not a surprise, that the Dubroom is thankful to be able to produce original riddims for the voice of this crucial and legendary MC and present them to you.

Born in 1954, Trinity was educated at the Alpha Boys School. After initially working under the name Prince Glen, he began working under the stage name Trinity, taken from the spaghetti western character. 

After working as a deejay on several Kingston sound systems, he made his debut recording in March 1976 with "Set Up Yourself" for producer Joseph Hoo Kim. "Words of The Prophet" followed for Yabby You, who also produced his debut album, Shanty Town Determination. Late in 1976, he joined up with Dillinger for the "Crank Face" single, and the Clash album, produced by UK-based producer Clement Bushay. 

1977 saw the deejay in great demand, recording more than 20 singles for a variety of producers, including Winston Riley, Tommy Cowan, Joe Gibbs, and Yabby You, his biggest hit coming with "Three Piece Suit" for Gibbs, featuring Trinity toasting over a new version of Alton Ellis's "I'm Still In Love With You" rhythm, with a lyric that anticipated the move from 'cultural' lyrics to more material/carnal concerns of the dancehall era. This prompted an answer record from Althea & Donna using the same rhythm, in the form of the UK-chart topping "Uptown Top Ranking". Trinity recorded "Slim Thing" in response, but failed to match Althea & Donna's success. 

1977 also saw the release of the Uptown Girl album, produced by Bunny Lee, and strong albums in 1978 in the form of Three Piece Chicken and Chips (with Ranking Trevor) and Showcase. In 1978, Trinity also performed at the One Love Peace Concert in Kingston. In the later 1970s, Trinity began producing both himself and other artists, starting his own Flag Man label. In 1979, he recorded the duet "Funny Feeling" with Dennis Brown, and joined up with Barrington Levy for "Lose Respect" and "I Need a Girl" in 1979 and 1980 respectively. Subsequent albums met with diminishing commercial success, and Trinity switched from deejaying to singing, releasing the albums Telephone Line and Hold Your Corner in 1987 under the name Junior Brammer.

Trinity's younger brother, Robert Brammer, also had a successful career as a deejay, recording under the name Clint Eastwood.

MESSIAN DREAD PRESENTS A HEAVYWEIGHT DUBWISE SELECTION WITHOUT OBJECTION

WWW, August 2014 -It's been close to a decade since Messian Dread's album "Showcase" was released and it has been years since the Dubroom released anything of significance out of the studio. Now that quite a number of singles and EP's have been released this year, the time has come to present Messian Dread's first full length Dub album since ages and what an album it is: twelve top Dub shots featuring a host of legendary and skillful vocalists and much more.

Those who have been reading or following the Dubroom throughout the years, will know about the fact that after releasing countless of singles and albums in his very specific sound, Messian Dread was "completely finished". This year 2014, however, saw the Dubroom productions in quite a new sound to the surprise of some. In May, someone wrote: "Messian Dread make new Dub? I thought you were through you said on Dubroom?" as a comment on the first release in that new sound.

TRINITY - LIGHT OF THIS DUBWISE/DILLINGER - DWELL IN LOVE AND DUBWISE (EXTENDED VERSIONS)

WWW, August 2014 - Two Heavyweight Dubwise tracks in their extended version, both carrying the voices of two Heavyweight Reggae MC's each with their own impressive career dating back to the 1970's when Dillinger made a world hit with "cokane in my brain" while Trinity voiced the now absolutely classic Jesus Dread for Yabby You. Listen how they sound on the original Dubroom riddims in this fully legal and licensed free virtual 12", and then get ready for the full length DUB album that follows after this release. 

Granted: most 12" vinyl releases will carry Discomixes that sometimes last up until 9 minutes, where the two tracks on this release together last about eleven minutes. However, the longer a track the less room there is for a good bass and that's the reason why this release is brought to you as a virtual twelve inch maxi single: this is Sound System Style Dubwise and that means nuff bass!
