The founding members of Dubtonic Kru are Deleon “Jubba” White and Strickland “Stone” Stone, a dynamic Drum & Bass duo who, over the years have contributed to the development of modern roots reggae with their unique sound and approach that intertwines Jubba's mesmerizing Reggae/Jazz Fusion drumming with Stone's groovy, yet pulsating bass lines.

The Kru has gained about a decade and a half of experience from touring and or recording with the legendary likes of Max Romeo, U-Roy, Burning Spear, The Mighty Diamonds as well as modern day artistes such as Bushman, Junior Kelly, Richie Spice, Lutan Fyah and Voicemail to name a few…

One of the significant milestones in their careers was the composition of the “I Swear” rhythm, a rhythm that took the Reggae arena by storm, which featured Chuck Fenda’s “I Swear” and Richie Spice’s “Marijuana pon di corner”.

The Kru became a more complete music machine with the additions of longtime friend and versatile guitarist Craig McCalla, Jallanzo, another friend and guitarist which also later added his strong vocal ability and you talented Luke Dixon on work stations.

Another turning point of the group's dynamic came with yet another addition, a very unique and powerful singer to round out the already electrifying dub compositions with sometimes spoken words by Jubba. Kamau, the Quiet Warrior, who already had one album and two popular singles to his credit, "Sight a Revolution" and "Goodbye Babe" under the Island Treasure label, brings a revolutionary voice to the Kru.

Their songs and spoken words are consciously thought provoking,while their rhythm/dub section walks through the passage of time with a gritty sound that rolls stones and break fences. In 2008, Dubtonic Kru once again stepped out on European soil, this time as a complete unit. The Kru bonded with audiences through remarkable performances and further solidified their place in the Music Industry.

Dubtonic Kru is dedicated to raising the bars and keeping it interestingly spontaneous. Stick around for the ride.
