rebirth of studio one

By

22 NOV,2011

HAVING been described as the ‘Motown of Jamaica’ the island’s most renowned recording studio, Studio One, is on the path of a massive revamp after its operations went on pause for a few years. Following the passing of its owner Coxsone Dodd in 2004, recordings slowed down for a while.

His wife, the late Norma, ensured that Dodd’s legacy didn’t die as she offered her assistance in ensuring that the music of Studio One was distributed worldwide.

According to Courtney Dodd, son of the studio’s late owner, commencing January 2012, the studio’s doors will be reopened to continue on its path of major musical operations. Being a family business, the studio will be operated by Dodd and several of his siblings.

“Without a doubt we will continue with the tradition that Studio One is known for and that is to produce authentic reggae music, but we will also be doing dancehall music as well. Of course we will not be recording the type that consists of violent and lewd lyrical content. And presently, there are several dancehall acts that we look foward to working with,” the son of the late producer said.

Dodd also told the Observer there will be a in-house band that will consists of veteran and original Studio One musicians and engineers in addition to a few fresh faces.

Located on Studio One Boulevard, formerly Brentford Road in Kingston, Studio One first opened its doors in the 1950s and since then has established a global identity. Few will debate the saying that reggae music was born in the house of Studio One as Coxsone famously gave the Wailers their first recording break.

 He also recorded and released music by most of the top reggae recording artistes of the era, including the Skatalites, The Ethiopians, Bob Marley and the Wailers, Lee ‘Scratch’ Perry, Burning Spear, Toots and the Maytals, John Holt, U-Roy, 

Horace Andy, Ken Boothe, Freddie McGregor, Dennis Brown, and Alton Ellis
