09/30/2019 by Press Release
On Saturday, November 9, 2019, Kaya Herb House - Kingston is set to host the 2019 edition Dubwise Jamaica — one of the most anticipated events in the city’s dub reggae music scene at their new location at 82 Lady Musgrave Road, Kingston.
Having opened the first dispensary in Jamaica in Drax Hall, St. Ann in 2018 and a second location in Falmouth this year, Kaya Herb House will serve up a pre-opening night milieu of roots, reggae, and dancehall as it introduces its third and newest location in Kingston.
The Dubwise event has become a staple of Kingston’s reggae music scene, elevating traditional dub style and securing its place in the pantheon of new sounds emerging out of Jamaican popular music.
Dubwise promises to take patrons on a journey through the nostalgic, early sounds of reggae, rockers, rocksteady in dubplate style with the effervescent historian-style delivery of David Rodigan, who is returning to Dubwise for a much anticipated encore performance. This time around, Rodigan will be joined by Jamaica’s ‘Rock Star Selector’ Rory Stone Love - who is a legend in his own right, having invented the style of playing music knowns as ‘jugglin’ that DJ's and selectors still emulate up to this day and is now producing roots and reggae music on his own label Black Dub. To cap off a legendary lineup Renaissance sound with Delano & Jazzy T who popularized scratching & remixes along with popular dancehall productions that created a distinctive sound and continues to influence DJs to this day. Patrons can expect the unexpected along with many special guests.
From 9pm to 2am, patrons can expect to hear familiar, vintage, classic and contemporary Jamaican music that will showcase the full soundscape of Reggae music and its sub-genres. Co-Founder of Dubwise Jamaica Jason Panton says “This staging of Dubwise is a musical journey, but most importantly a place to dance and enjoy the greatest sounds of our own authentic reggae & dancehall music.” Patrons who cannot make it to Kingston can see Rodigan on Thursday, Nov. 7 at Kaya Herb House in Falmouth & on Friday, Nov. 8 at Kaya Herb House Drax Hall.
