Our Story

Dubwise Jamaica is one of the premiere & most notable reggae sound system events that started in 2013 - Kingston, Jamaica. We have been preserving roots and culture globally with Word, Sound & Power. Dubwise hosts a weekly event in Miami, The Dubwise Cafe which hosts 3 nights a week of reggae events of in Kingston, and as DJ's we are globally active at festivals and shows from Antigua to Addis Ababa. 

The concept began with Rory 'Yaadcore' Cha and Jason Panton, with support from a third, Oje 'Protoje' Ollivierre. The idea was simple enough: to reintroduce authentic roots dub reggae music in spaces accessible to mainstream young audiences.


The fact that the entertainment terrain has changed quite a bit since days gone by has been no deterrent for the team. We recognized that the vehicle for the roots ethos needed upgrading. So while Dubwise Jamaica did not reinvent the wheel when it began in 2013, it did change the tires in a sense. Since then, it has received consistent support from ones within the reggae community, from foundation personalities like David Rodigan, King Jammy's, Renaissance Sound, Ilawi (Jah Love Sound), Rory (Stone Love), Prince Alla, Fred Locks and General Pecos, straight forward to today's rising revivalists such as Jesse Royal, Kabaka Pyramid, Dre Island, Lila Ike, Naomi Cowan, the Marley family and many more.

Dubwise® is a registered trademark and is now spearheaded by Jason Panton who serves as DJ, Event Producer, and Creative Director for the brand. Dubwise has played throughout the African continent, and has yearly performances in the UK, and tours regularly in the Caribbean and coast to coast in America. 

We are proud to continue to serve the community with the sounds of reggae music and keep the fire burning for our passion project. The world needs the message and the vibes...Dubwise!
