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.

Highlanda Sound live set

Live DJ set: “When Highlanda Sound brought reggae to Buckhead”

It has always been my belief that people want authenticity in their music regardless of the venue.  As a DJ, I have had the privilege of performing at high-end and hole-in-the-wall venues, but this did not mean that I had to switch up my playlist.

As a party builds, and the crowd begins to increase in size, it’s important for the DJ to control the vibe and energy in the room by not starting out too fast.  A gradual increase of the pace sets a solid foundation for the energetic climax later in the night that should take place.

To illustrate this, I have curated some audio of a live set recorded at one of my first residencies in the Buckhead party district of Atlanta during the early 2000’s – when nightlife carried on until 4am in the city.  This was the hottest attraction in the city at the ultra sexy upscale venue, Kream – the same one mentioned by Jermaine Dupri in the song “Welcome to Atlanta.”

It was important for me to give a really organic representation of how a reggae dancehall sound system controls a dance, not only for the entertainment of the patrons but also because I wanted my guest DJs to feel comfortable enough to go hard with the crowd when it was their turn to take control.  Once the foundation is set with a good “early-warm,” it’s then much easier and much more likely that the dance will erupt in excitement later on.

My set commences with strictly veteran singers from the 1970’s and 1980’s like John Holt, Sugar Minott, Nitty Gritty, Dennis Brown, The Heptones and Barrington Levy.  After about 40 minutes, selections from the 1990’s could be heard with the first Everton Blender tunes, Luciano, and a Garnett Silk mega mix.  Listen as the MC, SuperPEC welcomes several people to the dance, and a crowd gathers for the ensuing festivities.  Listen as I carefully advance the pace and turn up the heat while watching the dancefloor start to bubble.
