Imagine heavy baselines, one drops, psychedelic guitar riffs, echoing keyboards, popping percussion and conscious lyrics    Now imagine roots reggae, imagine dub, rock… Put them all together and you get a new breed of Jamaican music called DubTonic Kru

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

It's then no surprise, the level of positive energy that is shared through music between "Dubtonic Kru" and their listeners everywhere they perform.

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. After a fierce musical showdown of different genres that involved national finalists from numerous countries, the Executive Judges made the unanimous decision that awarded Dubtonic Kru top honours.

Founding members of Dubtonic Kru, “Jubba” and “Stone”, a dynamic Drum & Bass duo, who over the years contributed to the development of modern Roots Reggae, with their unique sound and approach that intertwines Jubba’s mesmerizing Reggae/Jazz Fusion drumming with Stone’s groovy, yet pulsating bass lines..

With the addition of longtime friend and versatile guitarist Jallanzo, who added his strong vocal ability and the young, talented Luke Dixon on work stations, Dubtonic Kru became a more complete music machine 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. Some of their popular numbers like Sunshine Girl, Born Jamaican, World Crisis, Balance and Natty Dread are testimony to the group’s versatility.

Certainly, their successes have given rise to a resurgence of bands on the local scene in Jamaica and they were once again honoured with the Jamaica Star’s "People's Choice Award" for "Band of the Year".
