Dubtonic Kru: Tonight and X Boyfriend


Dubtonic Kru ft. Chantelle Ernandez – “Tonight”

Up-and-coming Jamaican song bird Chantelle Ernandez teamed up with Dubtonic Kru for this gem. “Tonight” is the kind of song that will prompt lovers instantly to leave a no disturb sign hanging on the door handle. It is the first extract from the upcoming “No Disturbance” Riddim Selection produced by Jubba White for White Stone Productions. Look out for more artists to be featured on this riddim later this spring.

Masia One – “X Boyfriend”

“X Boyfriend” is the passionate story of a love gone sour. Singaporean-Canadian artist Masia One, recently crowned “Best Overall Female Artist” and “Social Media Champion” by VIMA Asia Music Awards, eloquently penned the song that got nominated in the “Best Pop Song” category of the same awards herself. “X Boyfriend” is the first single of the upcoming album “Lim And The Lion”, a White Stone Productions effort in association with Merdeka Group. The album will include features with Dubtonic Kru. While Masia One is usually at home in hip hop, she shows that she’s just as much at ease with reggae here.

White Stone Productions

Every now and then a seasoned musician, singer or producer decides to dedicate himself to a new project. No matter how much respect he has earned already, no matter how stunning the skills, getting the word out is never easy. Jubba White is a household name in the reggae industry. He has worked together with legends like Max Romeo, U-Roy, Burning Spear, and The Mighty Diamonds, and with younger luminaries like Junior Kelly, Richie Spice, Lutan Fyah, Bushman and many others.

Together with bassist Stone, the dynamic drum and bass duo Jubba & Stone is often compared to Sly & Robbie. Jubba & Stone are the founders of Dubtonic Kru and thus at the very forefront of the current reggae renaissance movement in Jamaica they helped to spark. While Jubba White is proud to be a part of Dubtonic Kru, the band that won the Global Battle of the Bands in Malaysia in 2011, this Edna Manley College of the Performing arts alumni wants more artists to profit from his tremendous musical creativity.

He thus founded his production company White Stone Productions in 2011. Three years later, White feels the time is right to step up his activities. Carefully handcrafted reggae music with an international appeal and strictly conscious, uplifting messages is his business. White Stone Productions’ first single releases clearly prove that Jubba White is on the right track indeed.

The company has existed under the radar for quite some time. Jubba White was most notably responsible for the Tantrum Riddim released in 2007 that featured Bushman, the Canadian singer Dylan Murray (who has toured with Nelly Furtado), Al Fray, Brahyan Art & Brando, and Dubtonic Kru. White Stone Productions is an arm of Di Kru Productions, Dubtonic Kru’s production company.
