Mikey Dread started out as an engineer with the Jamaica Broadcasting Corporation when some of the most innovative reggae was being recorded in Jamaica. He convinced his bosses to give him his own radio program called Dread At The Controls and the rest is history. You can hear his radio announcements and shout outs before most tracks of his first record African Anthem Dubwise. It is one of the finest '80s era Reggae records as it features many styles.

African Anthem Dubwise is available as a limited numbered edition of 1000 copies on transparent blue coloured vinyl.
