Jamaica’s Dubtonic Kru Wins Global Battle of the Bands Competition
Dubtonic Kru’s performance at “Scotiabank Presents the Global Battle of the Bands Jamaica 2010” last December.
Last Saturday, Jamaica’s DUBTONIC KRU won the Global Battle of the Bands competition held in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.
The band had won the local Global Battle of the Bands Competition produced by Griot Music limited on Saturday December 11, 2010 at Redbones Blues Café in Jamaica. The band then went on to represent Jamaica at the world finals in Malaysia in February 2011.
The founding members of Dubtonic Kru are “Jubba” and “Stone”, a dynamic Drum & Bass duo who, over the years have contributed to the development of modern Roots Reggae with their unique sound.
The Kru has gained about a decade and a half of experience from touring and or recording with the legendary likes of Max Romeo, U-Roy, Burning Spear, The Mighty Diamonds as well as modern day artistes such as Bushman, Junior Kelly, Richie Spice, Lutan Fyah and Voicemail to name a few…
Their songs and spoken words are consciously thought provoking, while their rhythm/dub section has a gritty rootsy reggae sound.
