Riddim Wise - The Rub-a-Dub Session

Riddim Wise presents “The Rubadub Session” mixtape, gathering the best cuts in classic foundation reggae from the 70’s:


Remember when Sizzla came out with the Black Woman & Child album?

I wanted to dedicate this show to all the empress.

I start off with a Shabba Ranks on the same riddim. I remember first hearing this tune first on a Stone Love live mix around 96. At the time it was very difficult to find the 7″ at the time so until recently i was not able to play the tune. Dada’s cut goes into a dubplate version on the Queen of the Ministrel riddim. The dubz on this riddim were all in spired by Randy Valentine’s Poor Mans Loving. I always loved the Sizzla tune and being from India i was keen to have a version dedicated to all the Indian empress. Begum X recorded the back up vocals for both the Sizzla and the Jah Mason cut and I now prefer the dub to the 45. Apart from this, the mix contains a lot of Xterminator productions and goes into some Channel One style rub-a-dub towards the second half. Enjoy …



Pupa Vinylist is a french reggae-lover who lives for many years in Germany. With a few friends he founded the Rebelion Soundsystem in a town called Dubstadt, where they are responsible for some of the heaviest sessions in the region with many well-established artists like Mungo’s Hi Fi, Cultural Warriors, Jahtari, Subactive and Riddim Tuffa among many others.
He selects all kind of soundsystem styles from the late 60s to modern production but his favorite era is still the early 80s where Deejays “rubbed” the dubs in the yards they called dancehalls, bringing their skills over old Studio One classics, played all night long on self-build but heavy Soundsystems.
With this mixtape he wants to share his love for this very raw sound through a versatile selection, from Channel One rub a dub classics toward to the early digital productions:
