Album · 2011 · 16 Songs. The dawning of digital dancehall in the mid-’80s was an extinction-level event for most reggae acts that didn’t adapt. But Augustus Pablo, much like his liquid melodica lines, effortlessly flowed with the times, like on A Java Instrumental, a slithering track based on his famous Java rhythm. He weaves a daft melodic line against the shuddering snares of Ammagiddeon Dub, while the infinitely echoing effects of Blacka Black Dub ripple like an iridescent ragga horizon.

Message Music: Digital Productions 1986-1994. From his incredibly long dreadlocks to his hypnotic melodica playing, producer/musician Augustus Pablo seems to be the quintessential roots reggae man, but Message Music focuses on the legend’s often ignored digital era, which has plenty of detractors. Get past the instrumentation - plenty of synths and thin, electronic drums - and there’s little support for the hatred, as these digital tunes feature the same mysticism, uplifting melodies, and solid grooves that characterized Pablo’s early work.

Augustus Pablo, Message Music: Digital Productions 1986-1994. Roots Reggae was touched by pure genius when Augustus Pablo broke out his melodica. It's a childlike and whimsical instrument with a youthful and nostalgic ton where melodies abound with a harmonic ease that's not steadfast, but still leaves an embedded impression in your soul. Though the melodica was his signature musical endeavor, Pablo experimented with a host of electronic sounds during the period of 1986-1994

Augustus Pablo is recognized as Jamaica's foremost instrumentalist. Pablo's catalog consists of dozens of full-length albums and hundreds of singles over a period of 35+ years. I knew in the 1980s Augustus Pablo had moved away from the acoustic drum sound of his earlier music and concentrated on drum machine rhythms. I also knew he was beginning to feel the effects of the disease which would eventually kill him. And the few pieces I had heard of later Pablo honestly had not impressed me very much. I am not a fan of drum machines. It is ethereal and other worldly; one is tempted to say mystical-but only mystical in the way the best of Bach is mystical.

Horace Swaby (21 June 1954 – 18 May 1999), known as Augustus Pablo, was a Jamaican roots reggae and dub record producer, melodica player and keyboardist, active from the 1970s till his death. He popularised the use of the melodica (an instrument at that time primarily used in Jamaica to teach music to schoolchildren) in reggae music. His album King Tubbys Meets Rockers Uptown (1976) is often regarded as one of the most important examples of dub.
