Dancehall recording artiste Dubbi is pleased that, due to social media, his song, Send Me There, went viral in Birmingham, England.
“Recently a lot of disc jocks and selectors, mainly DJ Killa Filla (based in the UK), started playing the song on a regular basis and, of course, the powers of social media, it took off on TikTok. The song is also very catchy and is a sentiment for a lot of people,” said the artiste, whose real name is Marvin Lee Scott.
Send Me There was recorded in Jamaica in 2010. Dubbi has lived in Birmingham for the best part of 20 years where he has carved out a decent underground following.
Dubbi grew up in Dusty Park, off of Chisholm Avenue, in Kingston. He attended Norman Manley High. As a youngster he was called Dooby by his friends in reference to the popular Scooby-Doo! cartoon. Encouraged by a friend to do music, he auditioned once for Ken Boothe who gave him the thumbs up.
“I wrote a lot of poems so I began to experiment with music,” he said.
He migrated to live in the UK 20 years ago, and recorded his first single, Let Me Loose in 2006, and continued to hone his craft over the years. He released the Send Me There EP on the Moshino Royale for The MBC label on March 4, 2022. The EP features singles such as Classroom, Rolling, Wah Gwarn, and Crawb Up.
He will be performing at a dance in Birmingham on June 2. He will also appear on legs of Jah Vinci’s UK tour on July 1 and July 2 before doing ‘Fever’ Fest in Luton on July 23. He will round out the summer with a show called Urban Reloaded on August 13.
