“The name Rub-A-duB does not describe the type of music we perform and record. We chose the name because of what it represents: A joyous congregation of like-minded people. In other words: A HELL OF A PARTY!”- Krabash, Lead singer & producer.
The group Rub-A-duB is the leader of a new style of South African Music called SMASH. Smash is an edgy township pop sound based on Dancehall music. It combines all their influences which are Reggae, Hip-Hop, Kwaito and R&B into a compelling new sound. They deliver their songs in different languages including Zulu, Sotho and English. Their sound can be likened to an edgy combination of Chakademus & Pliers, South African urban pop group TKZee and the hip-hop-inspired reggae sounds of Damien Marley.
