LKJ in Dub is an album by dub poet Linton Kwesi Johnson, released in 1980 on the Island Records label. It contains dub versions of tracks from the two previous LKJ albums, Forces of Victory and Bass Culture. All tracks written by Linton Kwesi Johnson. Victorious Dub" – 3:32. Iron Bar Dub" – 3:42. Cultural Dub" – 3:27.

It is what it says it is, an album of dub versions of songs from Forces of Victory and Bass Culture. As dub goes it's very good; Bovell acquits himself nicely as mixer and producer. This would be the last LKJ release for four years.

It is uplifting, with memorable horn arrangements and melodies. If you are a fan of Linton and Dennis Bovell (aka Blackbeard), or want a tasty example of British Dub from the late seventies then this is recommended. Mr Bovell understands the heartbeat of Mr Johnson's poetry and the fire in the belly that drove the man to produce some of the best reggae in England from the late seventies on. This 1980 (on vinyl) release now on CD. it still holds together as a dub monster on the rampage in 2013. For me stand outs are the reworkings of "Brain Smashing Dub" and the opening track "Victorious Dub".

This album has an average beat per minute of 129 BPM (slowest/fastest tempos: 78/148 BPM). See its BPM profile at the bottom of the page. BPM Profile LKJ in Dub.

Linton Kwesi Johnson (aka LKJ) (born 24 August 1952, in Chapelton, Jamaica) is a British-based Dub poet. He became only the second living poet to be published in the Penguin series. His poetry involves the recitation of his own verse in Jamaican Creole over dub-reggae, usually written in collaboration with renowned British reggae producer/artist Dennis Bovell. Most of Johnson's poetry is political, dealing mainly with the experiences of being an African-Caribbean in Britain.
