Jah Snowcone And The Dubtonic Kru Cook Up The Susumba Riddim

Platinum-selling producer Rohan “Jah Snowcone” Fuller has joined forces with ‘Global Battle of the Bands’ winner Dubtonic Kru for his latest musical stew the ‘Susumba Riddim.’ The savory one-drop rhythm features the Dubtonic Kru, roots Reggae warriors Nazine, Nesbeth, Nature, and Faya Star, versatile Gully Squad deejay Savage, and Reggae sirens Sophia Squire and Chantelle Ernandez.

The Susumba riddim is reminiscent of the bass and guitar driven rifts that elevated bands like the Wailers and Culture from local musicians to international icons in the 1970s. Named 2010-2011 ‘best new band of the year,’ Dubtonic Kru brings back an organic sound that is rare, and sorely missed, among the computerized ‘island hop’ sounds that have invaded Reggae/Dancehall over the past few years.

“I want to bring the Reggae and Dancehall back into Jamaican music; over the past few years, the sound has become watered down and drowned out,” says Jah Snowcone, best known for producing Sean Paul’s Billboard topping hit “Temperature.” “The Susumba riddim has that REAL Reggae sound. That sound that reminds us of what Reggae music is all about.”
