With the release of their 1979 hit, ‘Rub-A-Dub Style’, deejays Smiley and Michigan announced to the world that Reggae music was undergoing a major change. Dancehall was gonna take over leaving the Roots and Rockers sound of the 70′s just that – in the past. This new sound was blowing up Jamaica and it has now not only changed Jamaican music but has inspired and helped lead the way for Rap and Hip-Hop all around the world.
In her new book, ‘Rub-A-Dub Style: The Roots of Modern Dancehall’, writer Beth Lesser focuses on the rise of Dancehall after the passing of Marley in 1981 and the Dancehall explosion in the early ’90′s. The book looks at the decade after the death of Bob Marley that took the music of Jamaica even a step further taking the Dancehall style sound from the ghetto to even greater international success.
