A DAILY TUNE UNTIL THE END OF THE YEAR

Dubroom Online, Edition August 31 2009

Dubroom Online, Edition August 31 2009


"A DAILY TUNE UNTIL THE END OF THE YEAR" (WEBMASTER'S COLUMN)

WWW, August 31 2009 - Today, we conclude the first month of plenty months to come, in which we review a crucial free and legal Reggae MP3 per day and can even offer a direct download link with the review.

The first 15 tunes, which you can of course still download, provide a pretty good impression of the music which you can -Jah Willing- expect to download daily at least until the end of this year.

In the meantime, we continue to daily feature a track from the EZTRACKS.com website, including over 30 old Wailers releases. So we're not about to stop there, either.

I hope that you are as happy as me about the fact that the Dubroom is able to provide this music to it's visitors/readers.

One Love, Give Thanks,
Messian Dread (Dubroom Webmaster)

AUGUSTUS PABLO - THRILLER (DUBROOM ONLINE MP3 REVIEW)

READ MORE

WWW, August 31 2009 - It's not coming with the sound that made Augustus Pablo the founder of the Far East Sound, and it's more of an instrumental version than a Dub, but you just can't refuse this one, if only because of the jazzy horn vibes on top of the Rockers Drum and Bass line.

HORTENSE ELLIS

Dubroom Online, Edition August 30 2009


"HORTENSE ELLIS" (WEBMASTER'S COLUMN)

WWW, August 30 2009 - Today, we feature the brand new Dubroom Artist Page for Hortense Ellis. She's also currently featured artist in the Dubroom MP3 Portal, and not without reason.

Of course, one major reason is the fact that there are over 70 free MP3's available by this singer, who was Female Singer Of The Year in the Jamaica of 1964.

Another reason rests in the reason why all these MP3's are available for free.

Recently I was contacted by a family member of the singer, who told me that none of the royalties that were ever paid over her music came into the hands of those that need it, namely her children.

They felt it was better for the fans of the singer, who unfortunately passed away in 2000, to not feed the parasites who charge for download but don't pay royalties to Hortense's heirs, but instead download the music for free.

One Love, Give Thanks,

"DREAD AT THE CONTROLS" (WEBMASTER'S COLUMN)

WWW, August 29 2009 - Today, Dubroom Online features the brand new Dubroom Artist Page for Mikey Dread.

The original Mikey Dread, that is.

He needs to be respected and acknowledged as one very important person in Reggae History and Development.

A week or so ago, we had an MP3 review of the great "Propper Education" in it's extended version, where Mikey Dread's MP3 page on the Dubroom already contained some niceness by the brother, who unfortunately passed away just recently.

Jah willing, Dubroom Online is going to review a whole lot more crucial tunes by Michael "Dread At The Controls" Campbell, among which some serious Dubs and Toasting tracks.

RUB A DUB CLASSICS

image

Dubroom Online, Edition August 28 2009


"RUB A DUB CLASSICS" (WEBMASTER'S COLUMN)

WWW, August 28 2009 - Many people seem to think, that Reggae Music somehow stopped being Reggae Music somewhere in the mid to early 1980's. At least, in the collection of many Reggae collectors, the amount of albums and music from the 1970's is more often than not bigger than that of younger times.

They're missing out some things for sure, but not if they read today's edition of Dubroom Online.

Today and tomorrow, the MP3's reviewed for Dubroom Online are two true Rub a Dub classics. When these tunes came out, they were among the hottest ones.

I personally remember these times, and the impact it had on me back then. The sound was fresh, because of the subtle Dub mixing and the fact that the music seemed to be slower than just a couple of years before that, when Rockers was the predominant style in Reggae.

In the meantime, these -then new- tunes have become classics, essential listening for everyone who is interested in in the history of Reggae Music.

REGGAE GOT HOUSE

Dubroom Online, Edition August 27 2009

Dubroom Online, Edition August 27 2009


"REGGAE GOT HOUSE" (WEBMASTER'S COLUMN)

WWW, August 27 2009 - The MP3 reviewed for this edition of Dubroom Online is a perfect example of how contemporary Dance music and Reggae fit very well together because of the similarities between the structure of both the music and the mix in the two musical genres.

It equally shows an aspect of Reggae Music, namely to absorb the vibe of the time and of other genres, only to capture it within the rhythmical structures of Reggae Music.

Just think about Toots and the Maytalls' "Reggae Got Soul", for example. People who love(d) Soul Music would recognize the track as a Soul Track, especially when they would "never" have heard of Reggae Music before.

Aswad's "This Sound" could also be called "Reggae Got House"...

"THE CONVERSATION CONTINUED..." (WEBMASTER'S COLUMN)

WWW, August 26 2009 - Recently, the Dubroom published a conversation between online artist David Pablo and myself. A long conversation, but nevertheless read by many people who have something to do with the Online (DUB) Reggae Artist Community.

The conversation continued on the Dubroom Message Boards, where it quickly became of the most read threads.

Not surprisingly, though: it's an exchange between two -at times- opposing views, who do agree over the fact that Reggae Music must be promoted.

This exchange could provide the reader with some inspiration or reasonings for the many changing times and things currently taking place within the Online (DUB) Reggae Artist Community.

JAH MUSIC

(with apologies for the delay)
Dubroom Online, Edition August 25 2009

Dubroom Online, Edition August 25 2009


"JAH MUSIC" (WEBMASTER'S COLUMN)

WWW, August 25 2009 - One reason why Reggae does not get the recognition that the music deserves, may very well be found in the fact that it is not only common, it is -in some ways- a must for artists to give praises to the Almighty in at least one title.

The biblical roots of many things related to Reggae Music is clear for even the casual observer. Dreadlocks, just like Samson in the Bible, the worship of Jah, Whose Name is praised by everyone who says "HalleluJah", all these things show why Reggae Music is so often called "Jah Music".

It doesn't mean that all these artists really mean what they sing with all their heart and soul, obviously. But I think that the number of genuine praises to the Most High within Reggae Music exceeds that of the whole "Gospel Industry".

A SHORT REVISIONIST'S LOOK AT MUSIC HISTORY

Dubroom Online, Edition August 24 2009

Dubroom Online, Edition August 24 2009


"A SHORT REVISIONIST'S LOOK AT MUSIC HISTORY" (WEBMASTER'S COLUMN)

WWW, August 24 2009 - Behind the scenes, Reggae Music played a larger role than usually admitted by the historians and therefore reasonably unknown to the general public.

Toasting had a huge influence, not to say was the major influence for styles like Rap and Hip-Hop to come into existence.

When the instrumental versions became Dubs, the Art of remixing was born and we do not need to say just how important the remix factor is, especially in contemporary music.

The concept of Dub, a drum and bassline with effects and strategic dropping in and out of instruments and vocals, is also a perfect description of styles like House and Techno.

Indeed: Reggae Music most definitely does not get the credit it deserves. Maybe it's time for some revisionist music history?

FR DUB

Dubroom Online, Edition August 23 2009


"FR DUB" (WEBMASTER'S COLUMN)

WWW, August 23 2009 - Just recently, the Dubroom reviewed quite a few online DUB releases by French Artists on French Net Labels.

It's a form of DUB/Roots which has a lot of similarities with UK DUB and Roots, but there is definitely a French Touch to it which justifies the statement that yes, there really is such a thing as "FR DUB".

One interesting similarity with UK DUB is, that both genres could sometimes be filed as Dance just as much as Dub. A missing link, if you will, between contemporary forms of digital music and traditional Reggae Music.

Another interesting similarity is the fact that within both genres, there is a significant amount of conscious material released. Which is really much needed in this time and Iwa.

UK DUB

Dubroom Online, Edition August 22 2009


"UK DUB" (WEBMASTER'S COLUMN)

WWW, August 22 2009 - I don't know about you, but I love some good UK DUB.

Usually, that would be a combination of digital and analogue instruments and effects, together with either some crucial Dub mixing or uplifting vocals, or both.

I can listen to it for hours in a row, preferably with some extra bass even though UK DUB isn't really lacking anything in the low frequencies, generally.

The sound is hard to describe, but one selector of contemporary digital music said to me UK DUB starts where House Music ends, which has everything to do with the prominent role of the bassline.

(Steve) Vibronics is one good representant of this specific discipline within Reggae Musicology, and the fact that there are quite a few free/legal Vibronics MP3's enables everyone to check out his productions out for themselves at no risk at all.

WWW, August 21 2009 - As the biggest possible clean-up of the Dubroom MP3 Portal is being done, the portal's "MP3 Museum" is growing significantly.

In this museum, people can see on what they have missed out. You can also say, that the museum provides an inside look in just what was available and what is available now.

Nice music on MP3.com and DOWNLOAD.com, for example. Even though every link to these sites is nicely redirected to LAST.fm, a lot of online artists do not have free downloads on that site and so they can no longer be in an MP3 portal.

However, as -Jah Willing- we continue the Dubroom Online MP3 Reviews, the MP3 Portal will have a much more interesting set of reviewed material than before.

WWW, August 20 2009 - As Dubroom Online continues to release one MP3 Review (with direct download link) per day, and that not of the least of artists, you could say that there is Niceness Galore in this time.

Nuff Niceness, but still, there is place for some extra stuff that some visitors/readers of the Dubroom will may find interesting even though they would not really expect it on this site (or blog/forum).

We're talking about a rarity: a band which uses Reggae as their inspiration rather than sticking with the original concept gets a review in the Dubroom.

The band signed up with Easy Star Records and are about to release an album called "Solid Ground" on the label. Somewhere next months, it should be available. You can already download two tunes from the album for free, which is just a little piece of niceness.
