This October, Lincoln Valentine Style Scott was murdered in his house in Manchester, Jamaica. He was 58 years old. The work on “Hard Food”, the first album released by his Dub Syndicate since “No Bed of Roses” in 2004, had just been completed. Dub Syndicate’s first studio album for eleven years, an event that was to be a joyous celebration with friends, has now become Style Scott’s legacy.
With Style Scott the reggae world, and indeed the entire world, has lost one of its best drummers. As “No Bed of Roses” and the album title “Hard Food” indicates, life wasn’t always easy for Style Scott. His unexpected, tragic death is devastating for his friends and family, to whom we express our deepest sympathy. At the same time, Style’s music – both sounds and lyrics – reveal that his life was rich in warmth and harmony. His death has made our lives poorer.
STYLE Lincoln Valentine SCOTT.
* Date of sunrise: April 29, 1956 - Chapelton Clarendon Parish, Jamaica.
† Date of sunset: October 9th, 2014 Williamsfield District - Manchester Parish, Jamaica

A very very special KING SIZE DUB release...
DUB SYNDICATE is probably the most "futuresized" roots dub band since ADRIAN SHERWOOD & drummer STYLE SCOTT (ROOTS RADICS) start collaborating in the late 70s. They produced a brace of great albums for On-U, a sort of genre crossover, but with definite reggae roots...!
'The KING SIZE DUB special ' is the ultimative relase' for the ultimative price in the king size dub serie...! Dub Syndicate presenting two brand new tracks, remixes (DJ Scruff and Ruts DC) and megamixes, special vocal contributions by Lee Scratch Perry, Bim Sherman, Big Youth a.o., three tracks megamixed and overdubbed by ROB SMITH (of SMITH & MIGHTY) — all completely remastered. The album is a must have for any serious Dub Syndicate fan and any KING SIZE DUB and Reggae collection — it's the perfect tool to bridge the time until the new studio album scheduled for early summer 2013 is released. more info >>
