Tribulation Sound - Strictly Rub a Dub Vol1. is a tribute to the early toasters of the Jamaican musical scene in the late 1960s and early 1970s . Rub a Dub primarily refers to reggae riddims mixed in a dub style, over which DeeJay's used to talk & sing. Toasting is not only important in Jamaican music, but also influenced heavily the evolution of American popular music, as it was Jamaican-born toaster DJ Kool Herc who brought the style to Queens, subsequently setting off the entire history of rap and hip-hop music. 59 minutes of sound history!
