RCola "Rub A Dub Wize" (Wikkid Records / Royal Crown)
"Based out of Montreal, Canada, RCola has been producing for over
ten years; amassing a staggering discography and loyal fans the
world over. His multi-faceted experience as a producer, re-mixer
and DJ are reinforced by his seemingly instinctive ability to make
the best of each vocalist and collaborator."
"Though he traces his inspiration back to the reggae and dub music
from the traveling soundsystems of Jamaica's Coxsone Dodd and
Duke Reid, it is RCola's deep immersion in the irresistible up-tempo
pace of the contemporary genre of drum ‘n bass that continues to
inform his patented uplifting ragga-jungle production style."
"RCola's willingness to track down and collaborate with his favourite
vocalists is quite rare nowadays. His dedication to recording fresh,
original vocals, working with session musicians, and creating music
that showcases live instrumentation and real-time recording values,
results in his creation of a dynamic and timeless music."
"Stellar remixes of The Wailers' classic "Kinky Reggae", Trans-Global
Underground's 2008 hit "Dancehall Operator", and Franco-Iraqi dub-hop
outfit Aiwa's "Azeri" and "Skimalja" featuring Jamalski are all given
the complete treatment; finding a new home nestled in the soundscapes
of RCola's signature grooves, and fueling his crossover appeal. His
remix work has also afforded reggae greats Barrington Levy, Sister Nancy,
and Jimmy Riley an opportunity to shine in a fresh new light."
"Rub A Dub Wize" establishes RCola as a bona-fide producer in the truest
sense. This full-length artist album does for Jungle / Drum and Bass what
Nasa or Blue Sky Black Death did for hip hop and Thievery Corporation have
done for downtempo: bringing together a variety of artists and sounds to
create a modern day fusion project curated by an omniscient hand at the
