“Rub-A-Dub” or “Rub-A-Dub Style” is described as one the genres doing the passage between Reggae and Dancehall. This is Reggae, mainly from the late 1970’s and early 1980’s, where DJ’s chanted and Singers sung over various tracks that were mixed in a dub style. Today, Rub-A-Dub files under Roots Reggae.

ROCKSTEADY ATL SUNNY SEASON DAY PARTY
The Sound Table – 483 Edgewood Ave, Atlanta, GA
The full audio from Rocksteady May 3rd 2015 featuring Jah Prince is available for download via my soundcloud page.
On Sunday May 3rd at the Sound Table, I had the great pleasure of hosting another installment of Rocksteady, Atlanta’s only thriving roots reggae monthly event. Internationally renowned hit-making reggae singer Anthony Malvo and his lyrical dancehall deejay compadre Little Twitch of King Jammys Super Power Hi Fi and King Sturgrav Sound System fame made a live appearance, performing together for the first time in years! This was also the very first feature for Little Twitch in the ATL.
The energetic audience was transported back in time by nostalgic selections drawn from resident DJ Passport and special guest DJ Jah Prince of the Sunsplash radio mix-show and Smokin’ Needles Records. The stage and tone was set for me to play a few more songs and then call in the artists who escalated things from there like the true veterans they are.
This audio portion features Malvo and Twitch in combination as I spin the riddim tracks. It was a joyous occassion in which new listeners were given an authentic taste of what dancehall reggae has to offer since the 1980s, while veteran skankers were provided with a mouth-watering feast of vibes for their own consumption.
Be there Easter Sunday April 5th as veteran selector Rico Vibes from Natural Vibes sound and Da Flava Radio.Com returns to the Sound Table for a special classic Reggae music set alongside Highlanda Sound System and DJ Passport. Doors open at 7pm, music turns up at 8pm, and admission is complimentary all night. Early arrival, as always, is strongly suggested for #RocksteadyATL.
Hear what happens at the Sound Table in Atlanta as I deliver a mixture of selections from brand new to deep foundation including roots reggae, dub and lovers rock tunes. About 28 minutes into the audio Atlanta-based dancehall artist, Dreggae, is well-received by the crowd as he interacts and performs three of his brand new one-drop songs. I follow with more musical selections and Rocksteady promises to remain a consistent event each month on 1st Sundays in Atlanta.
