.@DaleVirgo Seeks To Make A Global Impact With “DubSoul”!


When it comes to music, the Island of Jamaica has been a pioneer, contributing to the ever growing soundscapes. From Ska, to Reggae, to Dub, to Dancehall, Jamaica’s music has lent a hand in establishing new genres, and creating fresh new talent in the process. With names like Bob Marley, Toots Hibbert, Lee “Scratch” Perry, Sean Paul, and Vybz Kartel being some of the more recognizable names globally for their musical contributions, a huge impact has truly been made from such a small Island. Enter Producer Dale “Dizzle” Virgo who seeks to contribute to the growing impact with, “DubSoul”.

“DubSoul” is the newest sub-genre that promises to further change how you hear sounds. Created during the pandemic, Producer Dale Virgo delves into various sounds, and was inspired to create a new wave, something that will touch music lovers in a way that never had before. The sub-genre taps into Dub, Reggae, Dancehall, Soul, and other sounds from many other genres, and Dale Virgo believes that “DubSoul” will have staying power, and new talent from around the world will emerge to push it to unprecedented levels. “Armed with capabilities for physiological arousals, emotional mood setting, and a deep cognitive range, he is ready to take over mainstream with his dynamic rhythm sounds which can leave you: calm, mellow, happy, lively, enthusiastic, and inspiring, while also revealing the complex, sad and depressing side of the same coin. What is his name? He goes by the name “DubSoul.” shares Virgo about the new sub-genre. Early examples of DubSoul can be found on Gyptian’s 2010 single, “Mama Bawl”, and on Virgo and Jamaican Recording Artist SeanResy’s collaborative EP, “Rocky Road”, which was released in July 2021.
