Smile Jamaica Digital Dubplate: Mutant Dub A – Z 2019!

Greetings,

KRCL is a community radio station which means it doesn’t sell advertising but raises funds to operate via a radiothon. We take 2 shows in the Spring and Fall to replenish the coffers.

That means that I have to fund raise for donations after every song. So I put up these Digital Dubplates in lieu of 3 hours of begging for kasheesh.

Last week it was all Roots Reggae. This week the genre I “invented”: Mutant Dub. Contemporary electronic sounds with Jamaican drum & bass and echo.

At max volume it will clean the cobwebs from your speakers!
