Now in stock at JUMP UP! Introducing the DUB CITY ROCKERS from the UK! A killer debut, a band that mixes the energy and wordplay of Jamacian dancehall with neo-traditional ska and reggae grooves. When I first heard this album, I immediately thought it was like a cross between Coolie Ranx era TOASTERS 90′s material, a little BUJU BANTON, and just a touch of THE SELECTER as there’s a woman who as a powerful presence as well. An album that will transform you back to Jamaica, you can feel the hot summer grooves! It’s more “modern” with respect to dancehall than we usually carry here at JUMP UP, but it does deliver and we fell it is a worthy addition to our distro catalog!
