DUBWISE JAMAICA + YAADCORE
Portrayals of the excessively violent, highly comical or downright ridiculous aspects of Jamaican culture have become routine in popular culture. Thankfully, there is another side to this equation. Ample opportunities abound for people to witness and participate in the traditions that power us as a people. Once they see and feel the roots for themselves, they quickly realize that respect is due. One such event, Dubwise Jamaica, has risen to take its place in this category.
An ongoing partnership between two Rastafari bredrins, Rory ‘Yaadcore’ Cha and Jason Panton, with early and continuous visionary guidance from a third, Oje ‘Protoje’ Ollivierre with the aim of reintroducing authentic roots dub reggae music in spaces accessible to mainstream audiences.
Dubwise Jamaica did not reinvent the wheel when it began in 2013 but it did change the tires. Since then, it has received consistent support from ones within the reggae community, from foundation personalities like Ilawi (Jah Love Sound), Rory (Stone Love), Prince Alla, Fred Locks and General Pecos, straight forward to today’s rising revivalists.
