A collection of some of Jah Raver’s dub selections for 2014.
2014 was an extraordinary year for dub. Dub reggae in particular was showcased in fine style with strong releases from Roberto Sanchez & the Rockers Disciples, Blackboard Jungle Sound System, Sly & Robbie w/ Groucho Smykle, Addis Pablo, Mad Professor, Dub Club, and the crew at Tuff Scout whose Tuff Scout Inna London Town LP was one of the year’s best. Also, I-Grade records continues to re-invent and reinvigorate roots reggae with its Dub In The Rainforest series. Not to be missed by any dub/reggae fan.
Washington, DC, home to MIDNIGHT RAVER, came strong with extraordinary dub mixes from DUB ARCHITECT who ended the year with his BACK PORCH SERIES live dub mixes. Don’t miss DUB ARCHITECT at Bob Marley’s 70th Birthday Tribute show at DC’s 930 Club where he will blow it up with Jesse Royal and Third World!
Big shout to Washington, DC’s Rhythm and Culture Records who dropped an atom bomb in December titled Rhythm and Dub. Dub mixes so big they cannot be contained in one genre! Real heavy dub from Thomas Blondet, Farid Nouri, Dub Africa, Ancient Astronauts, and Archives.
