One of our performers this year, Dubtonic Kru, who will be on our Jumer’s stage Saturday night from 11-12:30 is part of a new breed of Jamaican music combining heavy baselines, one drops, psychedelic guitar riffs, echoing keyboards, popping percussion, roots reggae, dub and rock.
Like their style of music, Dubtonic is a mixture of two words “DUB”, relating to the heavy drum and bass aspect of reggae music and “TONIC”, referring to medicine. The eclectic blend of music and musicians are certainly medicine to one’s soul and after listening you simply just want more of this TONIC.
Their versatility and capability in being able to serve the right dosage to their varying audiences was the edge they had over their counterparts when they were voted BEST NEW BAND IN THE WORLD” 2010 – 2011 at the Global Battle of the Bands World Finals in Malyasia, February, 2011.
They are certainly dedicated and poised to raising the bar and keeping it interestingly spontaneous!
Dub and Tonic, the Dubtonic Kru is dedicated to keeping Bands and Reggae Alive…
