For the last 25 years, Tim Dub has toured the world mixing, recording, and working with some very well-known artists. He has worked in places like Canada, America, Europe, and the Caribbean, honing his craft and gaining professional expertise. He lived and worked in Jamaica for 10 years and has now returned to Canada to share his knowledge, work with homegrown talent, and achieve his life-long dream.
Since his return, Tim Dubs has teamed up with Willow Records to produce Kairo Mclean’s debut E.P ‘Easy Now’. “This came together through my friend Ralston also known as Willow from Willow Records. Willow invited me to a rehearsal he was having at his studio, where Kairo and his father were playing some cover songs,” Tim said. “Immediately, I was impressed and suggested that we should get together to record some original material”. ‘Easy Now’ is presently nominated for Album of the Year, 2021 on Europe top reggae site www.reggaeville.com. Tim Dubs is also a co-producer on Chester Miller’s latest single ‘Unity’.
Working and recording music in Jamaica has given Tim Dub a deeper insight into reggae/dancehall music and its international capabilities. He is happy to see the vast amount of young talent presently living in Canada but believes the progression of things has been slower than he would like and attributes this mainly to lack of organization. “I believe more unity among the artists, producers, musicians and promoters would be a great start,” he said. “If there was better organization, promotion and funding as well as a steadier stream of high-quality audio and visual releases, it would enable a greater acceptance of our music on the international scene”.
