This is the 4th track of my album "Showcase".

Going over from the traditional Roots music into a more Rub a Dub style kind of track. A different arrangement too, as the theme isn't played by horns but by a synthesizer.

A pumping bassline is taken by the drums and together they move from bar to bar, straight up to the second part wherein the Dub mixing starts.

During the lyrical part, there's some anticipation to the Dub as well. Lyrics that -by the Way- could be considered the most important of the whole album.


Oh yes, In a Rub a Dub style...

Rub a Dub Style all the while, sir
People dem smile all the while, sir
Rub a Dub Style all the while, sir
The people dem jump all the while, sir

Skank pon dem feet
Dem moving and grooving, ya
Jump pon dem feet
Moving and grooving, ya

In a Rub a Dub Style
Well versatile

In a Rub a Dub Style,
In a lover man style,
Well versatile

Dance with mi dawta
Dance with mi bredda
Dance with the people dem

Every one feeling all right
Everybody smile and jump around

In a Rub a Dub style...

Drum and bass mek mi whine up mi waist
In a Rub a Dub Style

Jump on your feet
Move pon your feet
Heavy skanking
Heavy rocking
Heavy dubbing
Heavy moving

(OK, let's do it....)
