The Rub-a-Dub (literally “rantanplan” of a drum) is a musical genre jamaicain born in 1979, very near to the American rap and which precedes a Ragga with the digital sound in 1985. Its principal representatives are Yellowman, Michigan and Smiley, Eek-HAVE-Foam, Ranking Joe. The " Rub-A-Dub" is a very stripped style of reaggae roots, low battery and skank discrete and rare. It appears at the end of the Seventies or 80. These ridims generally simple (base line simple+ one drop) is the support of the song of the deejays which is popularized at that time (U-Roy the pioneer, U brown, prince jazzbo, Dillinger, and especially Yellowman) and which will give rise to the ragga. These Riddim S (backing tracks, instrumental reggae) is played in the sound system (nightclubs) where the deejays output their words behind the microphone. One allots sometimes the creation of this style to Sly and Robbie (duet of beater and bass player) of the studio Chanel one.
