“The mission for Dubwise is to spread roots, reggae, dub, culture music to the masses and provide a space and balance with other musical genres penetrating society and the minds of the youth. With that mission we only could have one outcome: spread the dub wisely!”
I have curated some images and audio footage from the last Dubwise Atlanta event which featured Jesse Royal, Mr. Williamz, Yaadcore, Aba Shaka, DJ Passport, Farinheits Creation, and Highlanda Sound. Thanks for the #reggae support #ATL.

The highly anticipated debut of Dubwise Atlanta did not disappoint. There was an air of love and unity flowing as Atlantans came together for the special occasion, giving roots reggae a chance to flourish once again in town.
On this night I had the pleasure of playing alongside the international roots master Aba Shaka and out of Kingston, Yaardcore, one of the selectors credited with catalyzing and supporting Jamaica’s current reggae revival.
I began my round with classic shots from the Tuff Gong and Studio One labels, took excursions on the Heptones’ “We’re Gonna Fight” and the “M-16” riddims, and featured some contemporary dubwise selections with Chuck Fender and Everton Blenderbecause variety is the spice of life.
Listen as the crowd gathers near the stage on the dance floor to sing along and dance to the melodies and deep sub-bass brought forth by the Space 2 sound system. Special vibes for a special night in Atlanta dancehall. Look out for Rocksteady ATL on July 5th, August 2nd, September 6th and every 1st Sunday atthe Sound Table.
