Record Producer/ DJ / Record Plugger and Record Shop Owner Herman Chin-Lay operated out of his Aquarius Record shop at Half Way Three, Kingston, Jamaica. It is from this base that he started his recording studio where he not only put out the first ever Dub album ‘Aquarius Dub’ but was also responsible for naming future artist Horace Swaby. By allowing him to use his exotic fictitious working name ‘Augustus Pablo’ for his own recording career. Although called ‘Aquarius Dub’ the tacks that make up this album were cut at Dynamic Sounds, Harry J’s and Randy’s Studio 17. It was not long after this release that Herman opened the first ever twenty four track studio Aquarius Studios. Jamaican Recordings have compiled this set of Dub tracks that were worked on at Aquarius studio’s itself.  Using the legendary studio for some of the recordings and / or it’s mixing and voicing facilites.
