Dub Incorporation is a band from Saint-Étienne, France. The band formed in 1997 and over the years they have developed a unique style, combining the best elements of reggae, dancehall, dub, ska and even rap. But that's not all, their music is also influenced by African and Arab music with their songs being sung in a mixture of French, English, Arabic and Kabyle (a variety of the Berber language spoken by the Kabyle people in the north and northeast of Algeria).

The band has released several studio albums. The 2003 debut set "Diversité" was their first nationally distributed album and as a result they grew very successful locally, playing sold out gigs and selling more and more records. Next came the album "Dans le Décor". This 2005 release received rave reviews and they started touring in countries such as Germany, Portugal, Italy, Spain, Greece and Morocco. The year 2008 saw the release of the album "Afrikya" that established the band's name as being France's answer to the uprising German reggae scene. The album was awarded 'Best French Reggae Album 2008' by Web Reggae Awards. The name of the album "Hors Contrôle" that was released in 2010 pointed to a France governed by the racist president Nicolas Sarkozy and included a guest appearance from Tarrus Riley. The band has done some hundreds of shows in the past years on 5 continents! Undoubtedly they have become the epitome of the successful European reggae band; indeed the band's live performances have allowed them to establish themselves as the spearhead of the French musical scene abroad over the past ten years. "Rude Boy Story" is the first documentary film released about this band. In 2013 they released the album called "Paradise" and they shortened the name and credited the albums to Dub Inc. In 2011 they surprised the reggae community with the release of the "No Doubt Riddim", an album with contributions of reggae/dancehall superstars like Capleton, Busy Signal, Pressure and Tony Curtis. Recently they produced the 'Better Run' riddim, a one riddim album offering a smooth and catchy one drop reggae riddim.

For the release of their album "Paradise" they did an extensive international tour in more than 28 countries. The album "Paradise" got rave reviews and sold in extensive quantities all over the world. The current double CD/DVD was recorded live at the legendary French venue L'Olympia in Paris on November 19, 2014. Although they have played in larger venues like the Zenith in Paris, they decided to record the album in the Olympia with its 2,500 seats to emphasize the family aspect of Dub Inc. The result is a flamboyant, energetic and superb show, with all the hits and more taken from the albums "Paradise", "Hors Controle", "Diversite", "Dans Le Decor" and one tune from the album "Afrikya". Their recent chartbuster is also here, the tune that started the Better Run riddim, but also the one that brought them name and fame, Rude Boy, a tune first presented on their 1999 EP "Dub Incorporation 1.1".

The band performs with power and passion, and the lively interaction with the audience and the sheer joy and enthusiasm fills up the venue! The DVD lets you witness the show in a quality registration, perfect sound and image! Reggae artist Skarra Mucci joins the stage for the dancehall tune They Want. while the song Foudagh is sung in Kabyle and is underpinned by a raï/reggae riddim, courtesy of the musical contribution of Alaoua Idir who plays the mandola, a kind of Algerian guitar, and percussionist Antony Gatta. Almost every tune evokes a sing-a-long, and it's certainly not-done to point out outstanding performances since every tune is a gem on its own, so pick your own favorite!
