About the show

Playing tracks by

WWW, August 2014 - Today, the music in this non-stop show would be labeled "Roots Reggae". This has not always been so: Jamaican music developed from the early to mid 1980's into a style called "Rub a Dub". Early digital technology entered the studio's, gradually replacing the old tape echo's and providing a fatter sound. Rub a Dub style, let it play!

Actually, this was the time when your selector became conscious and a lover of (DUB) Reggae Music and heard several tracks featured in this show when they first came out. Starting with the first one: a fat Dub of which a vocal track will come later in the mix ("Groove with Me"). Another Dub follows in classic Rub a Dub sound, after which Sister Carol opens with yet another fat Rub a Dub riddim that will definitely shake up the place.

And that's just the introduction.
