In October 2014, Lincoln Valentine Style Scott was murdered in his house in Manchester, Jamaica. He was 58 years old. At that time he had just finished his work on Hard Food (EB 099CD/LP, 2015), the first album released by his Dub Syndicate since 2004's No Bed of Roses. Dub Syndicate's first studio album in 11 years, an event that was to be a joyous celebration with friends, has now become Style Scott's legacy. Now, one year after his death, the new dub scene of Europe pays tribute to this legendary drummer. The trademark song "Dub Is All I Got" appears here in 14 different versions as a kind of Remix Clash. With the death of Style Scott, the reggae world, and indeed the entire world, has lost one of its best drummers, while his music and lyrics remain as a testament to the warmth and harmony that enriched his life. As a special bonus, this CD includes tracks of Style Scott's drums and Flabba Holt's bass with which listeners can make their own remixes, in tribute to Style Scott. Includes remixes by Dubblestandart, Rob Smith aka RSD, Dubvisionist, Aldubb, David Harrow aka Oicho, Robo Bass Hifi, Oliver Frost, Dubmatix, Umberto Echo, Victor Rice, Fenin, Madaski (Africa Unite), Dub Spencer & Trance Hill, and Braindamage.
