Smile Jamaica: Digital Dubplate – Mutant Dub Endless Summer!

Greetings,

I am going through a home remodel. Pretty much since the beginning of March, my whole house has been chaotic as the contractor built me a real Ark-Ive. No more having to search through dozens of book boxes looking for that Mutant Dub herbtune recorded by a female singer.

I was handling the topsy turvy nature of workmen, dealing with the contractor, weather delays, etc. 4 months of inconvenience for a lifetime of organization.

The room looks great.  New roof, siding? Awesome.

Time to unpack and fill the shelves in the brand new, good for you, Smile Jamaica Ark-Ive
No more life as a music/media hoarder

Until the garage….the charlatans who sold me my house in 1995 scammed me. Rotted wood of the detached garage on my alley way. Put on dirt, not concrete footings. Filled the walls with cardboard filler and some sort of cotton candy junk. I can’t believe the whole thing never collapsed after 20 years of snow storms on that roof.

So they had to demolish it rather than repair it. $13k later. Parking my car on the street in the Sugarhood. It seems like it’s taking forever.

Has looked like this for 2 weeks. I think they did roofing and siding on my house in about the same time it is taking them to work on the garage. Grrr. Home remodels

Long story short. I had a home emergency right as I was leaving for last week’s Smile Jamaica. I told them I had no choice. I would have to get the show started, try to call a substitute and then rush home.

So I did just that. Got home about 5:30 for a five minute consult. Enjoy this Mutant Dub showcase cooked up in my Secret Dubratory to make amends for cutting and running last Saturday over the Airwaves.

bless, Bobbylon

Smile Jamaica Digital Dubplate: Jah-cember 2016 – Mutant Dub A-Z!

images-27

Greetings,

Been on a cratedig during the Thanksgiving Holiday. So I have been away from the decks at KRCL Smile Jamaica.

My fascination beyond Reggae is what I have called Mutant Dub for nearly 30 years: Take Reggae drum & bass and weld it on to contemporary dance, dub echo and modern pulsating electro beats.

So I hunkered down in my Secret Dubratory this week and cooked up what I call Digital Dubplate shows. Bonus roots and dubbers.

From A to Z. From Audio Active out of Jah-pon to Zombi Italian dubbers. Massive Attack, The Slits, ON U Sound, Bill Laswell and Thievery Corporation.

Dub ‘n bass will put a smile pon your face!

bless, robt
