Video: L.B.D.A – Trailer Ras

Here’s a little throwback for you guys. This is the official music video to Long Beach Dub All Stars first single, “Trailer Ras” off the 1999 release of Right Back. The video was filmed in the heart of Long Beach, CA & shows the carrying of the torch from what Sublime started, to what the Dub Allstars continued in preserving the Reggae-Rock sound & community that we celebrate today. To this day, the band does not get enough credit for the music & collaborations they created, further introducing young fans to the likes of Half Pint, Barrington Levy, Tippa Irie, Black Eyed Peas, Jurassic 5 & more. This was a time before social media sites were a tool to promote music. We hope you enjoy the song & video…
