This is a short documentary I directed in Jamaica for Dubspot, with the excellent help of Taliesin Gilkes-Bower and Tony Lowe in their guise as Raw Tings productions.  Visiting with Gabrie at his place in the hills above Kingston was an amazing moment. The work that Gabrie is doing to push forward the new roots movement coming out of Jamaica now is very vital and important. The community he provides at his place and at his Sunday night Dub Club sessions, playing roots and dub on the Rockers sound system provides a community nexus for new artists like Jah 9, Protoje, Chronixx and Kabaka Pyramid who are at the front lines spear heading the new generation of conscious Jamaican music.  It was really an honor and a wonderful opportunity to sit and reason with Gabrie about music and sound system culture.
