Dub Rockers/VP Records presents Reggae Dubs & Dabs, a seven track EP of uplifting ganja tunes, to be released April 15, 2016 just in time for the 4/20 celebrations. Dubs & Dabs brings together international reggae superstars from the United States (Stick Figure, Fortunate Youth, Soul Rebel Project, The Movement, The Green, Bobby Hustle) Europe (Alborosie) and The Caribbean (Mystic Revealers Collie Buddz, Chronixx, Raging Fyah, Marlon Asher), who all support global legalization of cannabis.
The set opens with Italian-born reggae star Alborosie’s “420 Fly” feat. Sugus on this EDM reggae banger professing their love for cannabis. The Golden state represents throughout the collection with anthems from Fortunate Youth and Stick Figure. Fortunate Youth rallies Hawaiian band The Green and Trinidadian reggae artist Marlon Asher on “Pass The Herb,” while Stick Figure brings in Bermudian reggae star Collie Buddz on “Smokin’ Love.”
East Coast rockers Soul Rebel Project enjoy a “Good Burn” on their superb jam, while South Carolina reggae band The Movement talks about their favorite past time with Collie Buddz and Bobby Hustle in “Habit 2016.” Kingston’s rising reggae band Raging Fyah delivers straight “Raggamuffin” style, expressing their preference for steaming chalice and natty dreadlocks, on the hard hitting track off their upcoming studio album Everlasting (Dub Rockers / May 27). Jamaican heritage band Mystic Revealers teams up with one of reggae’s new leaders Chronixx for a powerful anthem advocating for the worldwide legal use of the plant. Chronixx and Raging Fyah both got their start at Mystic Revealer’s frontman Billy Mystic’s Jamnesia. This surf, skate and music hub located on the coast of Bull Bay (just miles away from Kingston) became the local hang-out spot for these young “reggae revival” artists to cultivate their sound.
Currently, EP’s featured artists Raging Fyah, Stick Figure and Fortunate Youth are on the road together for a 30-city U.S. tour until the end of April.
