On Tuesday May 14th at 7pm PST reggae band Dubtonic Kru will be performing live at Studio City Sound. Dubtonic Kru was voted BEST NEW BAND IN THE WORLD” 2010 – 2011 at the Global Battle of the Bands World Finals in Malayasia, February 2011. Their album EVOLUTION is being released on May 28th, 2013.
The founding members of Dubtonic Kru are Deleon “Jubba” White and Strickland “Stone” Stone, a dynamic Drum & Bass duo who, over the years have contributed to the development of modern roots reggae.
The Kru has gained about a decade and a half of experience from touring and or recording with the legendary likes of Max Romeo, U-Roy, Burning Spear, The Mighty Diamonds as well as modern day artistes such as Bushman, Junior Kelly, Richie Spice, Lutan Fyah and Voicemail to name a few…
One of the significant milestones in their careers was the composition of the “I Swear” rhythm, a rhythm that took the Reggae arena by storm, which featured Chuck Fenda’s “i swear” and Richie Spice’s “marijuana pon di corner”.
This unique aggregation “Dubtonic kru”, in addition to it’s strong dub section, boast two up front rounded singers, Kamau, “the quiet warrior” adds a powerful and revolutionary voice, along with his energetic role on percussions and Jallanzo’s equally unique and versatile voice, not to mention his hypnotizing guitar riffs, twirling around young and talented luke Dixon’s magical hands on the workstations (keyboards).
Their songs and spoken words are consciously thought provoking,while their rhythm/dub section walks through the passage of time with a gritty sound that rolls stones and break fences.
