Clive Chin (born 14 May 1954 in Kingston, Jamaica) is a Hakka Chinese Jamaican record producer whose work includes recordings by The Wailers, Dennis Brown, Lee Perry and Black Uhuru, among others. Chin was a pioneer in the establishment of dub as a standalone musical form.
Chin's first major commercial success was Java, an international hit by Augustus Pablo. He had further local hits with Dennis Brown's "Cheater", and Junior Byles' "King of Babylon", and produced Pablo's debut album, This Is Augustus Pablo. Chin produced the Java Java Dub album in 1973, which he claims was the first ever dub album. Further local hits followed with Carl Malcolm's "Miss Wire Waist" and "Fattie Bum Bum", which, with the help of Jonathan King, became a UK chart hit in 1975, reaching #8.
