His style is a combination of hype and lyrical MC’ing, having been influenced by early Drum and Bass and Hip Hop styles.

Rub A Dub Hi-Fi
Rub A Dub Hi-Fi was set up by Charlie and Iarla in 2014 to promote conscious reggae music across all styles from Rocksteady and Roots through to Steppas and Ragga Jungle. They draw from a wide collection of 45s as well as exclusive dubplates, specials and unreleased material.
Originally organising dances using borrowed speakers the Rub A Dub Crew organised dances in various venues in Dublin and Dún Laoghaire as well as performing out and about as guest selectors at gigs and festivals all over the country. Feeling that Dublin was lacking any regular Soundsystem dances plans started forming to build a Sound. After a steady period using ÁGF's Turbosound System work began on the Rub A Dub Hi-Fi and the first half-stack was completed in October 2016. The first 2 scoops were built by Clive Davies a carpenter and friend. As their confidence and experience grew through that process they decided to complete all of the other boxes themselves.
Over a busy winter they built, sanded and varnished their full Soundsystem loading it out with high-quality drivers from Void and Precision Devices. This was completed with a JTS Annihilator pre-amp for maximum warmth and control over the full range of sound. Their first dance with the full Soundsystem was in February 2017 - a link-up session between Irie Vibes Sound System alongside veteran mic man Joseph Lalibela and Rub A Dub Hi-Fi with their good friend Ras Tinny. Rub A Dub have linked up with many amazing singers and selectors on the Irish scene and over the past three years they have had the honour of working with artists travelling from foreign such as Alpha Steppa, Chopstick Dubplate, Brother Culture, Dark Angel, Jah Marnyah, Speng Bond, Flowdan and Congo Natty.
Whether it is new effects, amps or box designs Rub A Dub are constantly seeking to improve their sound. Currently Rub A Dub are using 4 Mogale Super Scoops loaded with Void V18-1000s for their sub section which give a warm and deep, rumbling pressure. Above them are 4 HD15s with PD-154 drivers for upper bass - these kicks have a fast transient response which delivers punchy basslines. The mid section currently comprises of a combination of sealed and flared boxes using PD 10" and 12" drivers. Completing the high end there are compression drivers and Beyma CP-22 bullets which deliver incredibly crisp highs.
Misha Freshin first fell in love with bass music when he took to the dance floor of Strangeways in The Lost Society on South William Street and experienced low decibel bass weight for the first time. Since then he has been seeking the best in Drum and Bass, Jungle and 140 which lead to the birth of Sól Fúd . After just under one year inHabit Recordings was established. Playing a huge part in seeking out superb artists producing across an array of genres for releases on the label, it's Misha's passion for music and people that drives him to keep pushing on.
