The songs and spoken words are consciously thought provoking, while the rhythm/dub section walks through the passage of time with a gritty sound that rolls stones and breaks fences.
DUBTONIC KRU has never ceased to amaze their supporters. 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”.
Another milestone was yet again attained, when they earned the title “BEST NEW BAND IN THE WORLD” 2010 – 2011 by the GBOB executive judges, after a fierce musical showdown of different genres that involved 17 bands representing their countries at the highest level at the 2010 Global battle of the bands world finals in Malaysia in February 2011.
The challenge ended with DUBTONIC KRU being the award winning band, Russia 2nd, Germany 3rd, South Africa 4th and continuing. It was an achievement that shook the Jamaican music industry with amazement and gave more credence to the recent revival of that island nation’s live music scene.
They would like to thank GRIOT MUSIC for their support in live music and being the local franchise holders of GBOB, NANOOK ENTERPRISE, for their partnership in publicity, SPOKES APPAREL, for designing the outfits, JAMPRO, for the sponsorship of perdiems, TROPICAL METAL PRODUCTS, for our camera personnel’s flight and accommodation, SCOTIA BANK & REDBULL, official sponsors for the Jamaica leg of the challenge, who saw the importance and need to support the music at this level. We look forward to your continued partnership as well and hope for greater things in growth.
After touring Europe the summer of 2008 and 2009, then three consecutive tours of the U.S.A in 2010, DUBTONIC KRU is ready to rock the world!
They are certainly dedicated and are poised to raise the bar while keeping it interestingly spontaneous.
Look out for DUBTONIC KRU in a city near you, U.S.A summer tour early June – mid July & Europe, end of July – mid August.
