   Artist: King Tubby
   Genre: Dub   
Osbourne Ruddock (28 January 1941 – 6 February 1989) better known as King Tubby, was a Jamaican electronics and sound engineer, known primarily for his influence on the development of dub in the 1960s and 1970s. Tubby's innovative studio work, which saw him elevate the role of the mixing engineer to a creative fame previously only reserved for composers and musicians, would prove to be influential across many genres of popular music. He is often cited as the inventor of the concept of the remix, and so may be seen as a direct antecedent of much dance and electronic music production. Singer Mikey Dread stated, "King Tubby truly understood sound in a scientific sense. He knew how the circuits worked and what the electrons did. That's why he could do what he did".

The M-Pire. No one really remembers the exact day when they took over. It wasn’t a revolution over night, it was an ongoing process over years. Bit by bit, they took control, cut our freedoms and made us believe that we had chosen this. That we wanted it. And that it was good. But with time, a few us started to notice hat something wasn’t right. We felt a deeply irritating feeling inside us, even we were not supposed to. We couldn’t really talk about it. In this world, you were not supposed to feel this way. And if you did, the M-Pire had ways to heal you. That’s what they called it. But no matter how many pills we swallowed and chips we had in our brains, the feeling would never vanish completely. So we started to look deeper and deeper inside ourselves, until we found an answer. That was the beginning. The beginning of the Revolting Puppets.

The principal members were Haruomi Hosono (bass), Yukihiro Takahashi (drums) and Ryuichi Sakamoto (keyboards). The band was originally conceived as a one-off studio project by Hosono, the other two members being recruited session musicians - the idea was to produce an album fusing orientalist exotica (cf their cover version of Martin Denny's Firecracker) with modern electronics. However the first album (with its cutting-edge production) was very popular, and the studio project grew into a fully fledged touring band and career for its three members. Making abundant use of new synthesizers, samplers, digital and computer recording technology as it became available, their popularity and influence extended beyond Japan. Generally the band are highly regarded as pioneers of electronic music, and continue to be remixed and sampled by modern artists. The band had stopped working together by 1984, the three members returning to their solo careers. They released a one-off reunion album, Technodon, in 1993. The early 2000s saw Hosono & Takahashi reunited in a project called Sketch Show. On a number of occasions Ryuichi Sakamoto has joined in on Sketch Show performances and recording sessions. He later proposed they rename the unit "Human Audio Sponge" when he participates.
