Alpha & Omega
Dubplate Selection Vol. 3
12" Vinyl


LP version. Includes download.Music Mania and Indica Dubs presents the next release in their Mania Dub series. Following multiple classic re-issues, Mania Dub now bring you a long awaited freshly produced album by UK dub innovators Alpha & Omega, Dubplate Selection Vol. 3. As the duo explains, "We have always done alternative mixes for sound systems. We had enough good ones to make an album so that's why we released Dubplate Selection Vol. 1 (1995). As we released more albums we had more dubplates to release. We've had a long gap but after our recent releases we felt it was about time for Dubplate Selection Vol. 3. It includes mixes from the last three albums". UK dub pioneers since 1990, Alpha & Omega have worked with the likes of Greensleeves, Lee 'Scratch' Perry, Jah Shaka, and Gregory Isaacs. Alpha & Omega are a roots dub duo that mix both analog and digital elements, comprising Christine Woodbridge and John Sprosen, both of whom had played in reggae bands previously, Sprosen also having worked with the Roaring Lion Sound System. They began working together in the mid-1980s, splitting their time between their home towns of London and Plymouth, and issued their debut home-recorded cassette in 1988. They were picked up by Greensleeves Records, who acted as a parent company to the duo's A&O label, and also worked with Jah Shaka, for whom they supplied rhythm tracks. Although they are strongly influenced by artists such as Perry, King Tubby, and Augustus Pablo, they have developed a sound that has been described as "uniquely British".
