Horace Swaby (21 June 1954 – 18 May 1999), known as Augustus Pablo, was a Jamaican roots reggae and dub record producer, melodica player and keyboardist, active from the 1970s till his death. He popularised the use of the melodica (an instrument at that time primarily used in Jamaica to teach music to schoolchildren) in reggae music. His album King Tubbys Meets Rockers Uptown (1976) is often regarded as one of the most important examples of dub.

Augustus Pablo is a studio album by Augustus Pablo originally released in 1974 and co-written and produced by Pablo's childhood friend and critically acclaimed reggae producer Clive Chin. The album boasts an impressive list of session musicians including Ansel Collins on keyboards and Lloyd Parks and Aston Barrett both on bass guitar. The album was one of the first to showcase Pablo's unique use of the melodica. Dub Organizer" (Chin, Swaby) – 2:56. Please Sunrise" (Adapted) – 2:38.

Initially, Pablo had recorded with producer Herman Chin-Loy, but eventually began working with two other members of the family, Clive Chin and his uncle Leonard. The keyboardist also recorded with producers outside the Chin clan). By 1974, a debut album, This Is Augustus Pablo, was in the works, rounding up a dozen tracks cut with the Chins. An amazing roster of talent accompanied Pablo on these recordings, including the Barrett brothers, Earl "Chinna" Smith, Errol Thompson, and keyboardists Ansel Collins and Glen Adams.
