King Tubby- "Roots Of Dub" (Blue Moon, 1990)

"King Tubby (born Osbourne Ruddock, January 28, 1941 – February 6, 1989) was a Jamaican electronics and sound engineer, known primarily for his influence on the development of dub music 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 highly 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."

Trust me, you need more dub in your life, and this is as good of an introduction as any. Literally every song on this record has the word "dub" in the title. And if you're still too high after the Crippled Black Phoenix record, this would work well as a continuation.
