Vans and VP Records Release Dub Rockers Vol. 1

MEDIA RELEASE: Friday 20th September 2013

Vans and VP Records Release Dub Rockers Vol. 1

VP Records and Vans are proud to announce the NZ release of Dub Rockers Vol 1, a groundbreaking compilation that combines Jamaica’s top artists with popular U.S. andEuro-based reggae acts. The 10-track collection, released today through Frequency Media Group, features collaborations between Slightly Stoopid, Inner Circle and Capleton, Bad Brains and Angelo Moore of Fishbone, SOJA and Gentleman, Rebelution and I-Wayne, John Brown’s Body and Peetah Morgan plus many more.

Reggae music is thriving and unlike in decades past, its evolution is not emanating exclusively from Jamaica. With our 21st century access to technology, the Reggae community is a global one and new styles are emerging from all corners of the world. Dub Rockers Volume 1 is recognition of the international artists making significant impact in these sub-genres of reggae.

Vans and VP Records intended this compilation to cross borders and break down barriers and in accordance withthis ethos have made Dub Rockers Volume 1 available at very accessible price.

Available from JB HIFI all good retailers now.
