Dennis Bovell: The dub master

Dennis Bovell is back, promising some full-on reggae. He talks to Tim Cumming

“Our school had a recording studio, in the old swimming pool. It was quite a thing for the Sixties. The building’s still there – it’s a listed building, used to be a hospital during the war, the Royal Victoria Patriotic Building…”

The British reggae legend Dennis Bovell talks as easily and as prolifically as he works; and he hasn’t stopped working as a musician, producer, writer, arranger and engineer on countless reggae, dub, punk, pop and rock albums for the best part of 40 years. His production credits range from artists such as Fela Kuti and Alpha Blondy to The Pop Group and Bananarama.
