"Thanks to Music Like Dirt's musical map of London , I have come across another South London musical landmark: Dennis Bovell's Studio 80 at 6/8 Emerson Street, London SE1. Bovell is renowned as a musician, producer and sound engineer who started out with UK reggae outfit Matumbi. [...]Read the rest here.

Dennis Bovell's dub of Manu Chao's "Politiks Kills" with Linton Kwesi Johnson (another South Londoner) is available as a free download [mp3].
Read more about (and listen to music by) Bovell at An Idiot's Guide to Dreaming, Amigos de Duritti (on Bovell and LKJ) and Burning Dervish. You can listen to some Dennis Bovell - and some other outstanding dub reggae tracks - at The Book I Read. Bovell also produced The Pop Group - see Sounds of the Suburbs.
