Time to get FESTIVE!


How on earth has it got to this time of the year ALREADY!!! Once again, dust off the suit, dry clean the party dress… And come and have a right ole knees up with your DUB SMUGGLERS FAMILY for CHEEEEEEEEEEEEAP!

It’s the time of year where we like to give a little back for all the WICKED support from EVERYONE over the past year. We select our favourite acts, who’ve supported us no matter what, ask to come play for pretty much FREE and provide them with as much festivity as they can drink and taxi fare home… This is so we can CHARGE you guys, the CHEAPEST entry fee possible!

It’s also DUB MONSTA’S Birthday. We’re not quite sure how old he is going to be as you can only tell the age of a monsta by counting the rings on the inside of his belly (and in the words of Admiral Bailey, he’s a ”big belly man”). So bring a card, a dig or present for him!

Finally, we use to hold our XMAS parties near our office, so we ran with the theme of an ‘Office Xmas Party’… Thi syear we’re keeping the theme as we’ve all spent money on suits! SO WEAR YOURS (please)

Oh and that’s not it ACTUALLY, we’re also going to be showing off Sam Greenwood’s WICKED event and cover art (plus more) in FULL BIG SUPER COLOUR… So make sure you come take a good ole look at that!

The Beginning of Daddy Vad..!

Firstly, we want to say a massive thanks to all the skankers that came to our Ruby ‘Dub’ Lounge launch with The Scotch Bonnet Showcase… It was immense! We also want to apologise to the Ruby Lounge for the internal damage we caused to your wonderful venue… It has taken some arm twisting but we’ve (just about) been let back and we can’t bloomin’ wait…

Secondly, we’re not ones to blow our own trumpets (mostly because none of us can play one) but this time we’re just going to toot them anyways… We weren’t sure if we were going to be able to pull this lineup together, but we’ve done it… Feast your eyes on this:
