The story of Randy’s

For those interested in reggae history (yes we are!), there’s a 40 minute documentary about the Chin Family and the golden age of the mythic Randy’s Studio. It’s on the United Reggae website and features some rare archive footage and interviews with legendary artists like Stranger Cole, Derrick Harriott, Niney The Observer, Jah Stitch, Big Youth, Sly Dunbar, Earl Morgan (The Heptones) and many more.

Clive Chin is the man responsible amongst many other things for the release of the Augustus Pablo classic “Java” and for “Java Java Dub” which is claimed to be the first dub album ever. Below you can watch Augustus Pablo performing “Java” live with Soul Syndicate at the 1986 Japansplash.
