80s Rub a Dub Bubblers pt 2: Run Come inna the Dance

80s Rub a Dub Bubblers pt 2: Run Come inna the Dance

Playing tracks by

Junior Reid, Johnny Osbourne, Frankie Paul, Echo Minott & Wayne Smith, Wayne Smith and more.

Chart positions

This show was 7th in the global roots reggae chart and 32nd in the global reggae chart.

This week’s mix is a tribute to another side of Kingston ghetto life… the Dancehall -and it’s heroes: Soundman and DJs. With the heavy-like lead Roots Radics riddims and rising producers like Junjo, Linval and Sugar amongst others, and some astonishing mic skills from young DJs telling tales of ghetto life, with great whit an humour. Kicking off with a killer Tapper Zukie prod by Jr Reid -soon repressed by Dub Store I think (hopefully with a version! Original has a mediocre 90s angry DJ style)- then moving into some classic Jammy’s riddims of the time with many Waterhouse singers (Jr Reid, Wayne Smith, Echo Minott and co) and DJs. I’ve indulged in some foundation riddim excursions on cuss cuss, never let go/answer and Rockfort Rock… in true yard dance style. All selected cuts have their place here. with different flavours and productions and killer DJ performances by the likes of Burro Banton, General Trees, Ringo and Early B. Many a dance would ram with them kind of riddim for sure!!



Step up, step in the roots & rub a dub encyclopedia that is Heala sessions! Big up as always!
