Rest In Peace to one of our favorite artists, Garnett Silk. Many may remember Garnett’s silky smooth voice and powerful lyrical content that captivated us in the early nineties and left us wanting more after he flew away home to Zion.  Garnett Silk was a Jamaican reggae musician and Rastafarian, known for his diverse, emotive, powerful and smooth voice.

Similarly to The Notorious B.I.G., whom many hail as the greatest rapper ever, Garnett had a short run within the timeline of music history yet his legacy continues to grow. We remember Garnet’s legacy and celebrate his widely acclaimed musical contributions. Garnet Damion Smith (Silk) Sr was born April 2, 1966.

~ International Soundclash Promoter, Mikey Glamor (Mikey Glamour Sound Chat)

Soundclash newbie? Read on…

A soundclash is a musical competition where crew members from opposing sound systems pit their skills against each other.  Read more from Wikipedia.

Soundclash is Jamaica’s musical sport that has gone global.  Clashing is a celebration of reggae sound system culture and well, really a celebration of dubplates – exclusive recordings customized with the DJ/Sounds name mentioned in it.

“It’s really a glorified boxing match, where the public decides who wins. What makes it unique, and what makes you qualified to enter, is that you should have a number of customized recordings made especially for you by artists who are renowned, and those artists must call your name in the recording.”

David ‘RamJam’ Rodigan, the UK’s very own soundclash Godfather, a titan of clashing who’s been crushing opponents worldwide for close to 40 years.

A soundclash is one of the most unique live music events you’ll ever see!

Jamaican dancehall music live audio

RUB-A-DUB ATL, the Best Reggae Music live Dancehall Audio to Download

The 70s, 80s, and 90s were prolific decades for dancehall music and many strides were made in Jamaican music during that time.

The 1970s is still heralded as the golden age of Jamaican reggae music, but with the advent of digital technology, the 80s and 90s decades became known as the sweetest time for commercially successful crossover dancehall fusion, sound clashes and juggling dances alike.  The transitional period out of the golden age and into the digital era is when the term rub-a-dub emerged as both a description of the musical style (heavy drum patterns accompanied by swinging basslines) and a verbal representation of the popular hip-to-hip movements between dance partners of the time.

To this day in cities around the world, there remains a high demand for the fashion of dancing with accompanying classic riddims and anthems that rocked the dancehalls of yesteryear.

As such, it brings me great pleasure to present Rub-A-Dub ATL – dedicated to you, the reggae lover.
