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
