"The Messenjah" aka Luciano aka Jepther McClymont presents an album exclusively produced by Irievibrations Records -- a strong statement by Luciano for the love of roots reggae, a counterbalance overtaking the digital dancehall/hip-hop productions which have supposedly led to the loss of Jamaican roots in the music business. The rhythm tracks on Rub-A-Dub Market -- acoustic, hand-made and recorded live in the studio -- are perfectly suited for Luciano's moving and touching messages. The musical spectrum of Rub-A-Dub Market varies from roots reggae to dub to Nyahbinghi riddims. Even in respect to musical boundaries "The Messenjah" doesn't set limits, managing to cope with different music styles in his very special and inimitable manner. In a recent quote Luciano proclaims: "I came out of roots and culture as a reggae singer and have proven to people that I can fit into any genre of music ... I sing reggae, gospel and roots. I will sing rock too, but always keep my message clean, spiritual and cultural. There are no barriers in music -- although I am well known as a reggae culture singer, I have an international message. So I cannot leave it just to reggae people. I have to extend it to people of all walks of life." The title song "Rub-A-Dub Market" is one of the most outstanding statements these days and is thereby the album title. The song is a rational appeal to the reggae/dancehall business and targets the current state of the industry, with its fast-moving digital production. Due to these conditions, Luciano makes a sustainable statement for roots reggae music in general.
