BIG UP TO AURALUX!

Dubroom Online, Edition October 31 2009

Dubroom Online, Edition October 31 2009


"BIG UP TO AURALUX!" (WEBMASTER'S COLUMN)

WWW, October 31 2009 - Today, Dubroom Online features three MP3 tracks and one of them is made available by the label at the Dubroom's special request. For which we obviously give thanks!

We're talking about "Dub Ovation", mixed by a then very young Scientist and taken from the Auralux re-release "World at War", an album literally filled with more-than-crucial DUB material.

Labels like Auralux are not afraid to share a couple of tunes in order to make people familiar with their excellent releases. It's a more than friendly way to promote music and this more than friendly way should be answered positively, for example in the form of a purchase.

Scientist's "World at War", for example.

One Love, Give Thanks,

THIS IS THE DUBROOM (3)

Dubroom Online, Edition October 28 2009


"THIS IS THE DUBROOM (3)" (WEBMASTER'S COLUMN)

WWW, October 28 2009 - The Dubroom is definitely not a business or a religious mission or something like that. The Dubroom is a labour of a love. A love for (DUB) Reggae and Consciousness, shared by countless others.

Almost everything on this website is offered free of charge, sections of the Dubroom like the MP3 portal serve both listeners and label in this Musical Culture called Reggae, a Culture rather than a business because to promote (DUB) Reggae is, in the end, to promote the sufferers who originated the music and dominate it until this very day.

Anyway, I needed to share a little bit, these last days, about just what drove me to start the Dubroom and keep maintaining it throughout these last 12 years and -Jah willing- years to come.

One Love, Give Thanks,

Dubroom Online, Edition October 27 2009


"THIS IS THE DUBROOM (2)" (WEBMASTER'S COLUMN)

WWW, October 27 2009 - Love for (DUB) Reggae and Consciousness is what made me start the Dubroom in 1997. It's still this love that keeps me doing what I do, so it's not so far stretched to call the Dubroom a labour of love.

Reggae Music has taught me a lot throughout life. Bible quotes, insightful lyrics, musical vibrations that enter where no other music can touch my heart and soul, et cetera.

Unlike some folks, it is simply impossible for me to separate the music from the lyrics and therefore I do take the lyrics very serious.

This is why the Dubroom has several research projects wherein, if you will, footnotes are added to many Reggae lyrics. Research projects which are not always appreciloved by everybody.

One Love, Give Thanks,

Dubroom Online, Edition October 26 2009


"THIS IS THE DUBROOM (1)" (WEBMASTER'S COLUMN)

WWW, October 26 2009 - Greetings! I hope you don't mind that Jah Willing, the next days I'll use my column to explain a little bit just why the Dubroom is the site that it is.

The reason for that is that I've seen some rather confusing speculations, basically giving the idea that the Dubroom's aim is to make money or at least to increase traffic at any cost.

However, neither money nor traffic drives me to maintain the Dubroom. What drives me is love, love for (DUB) Reggae Music and love for the consciousness that people can get when they listen to Reggae Music with an open heart and mind.

Even though there are many things outright wrong in Reggaeland, and even though it's possible to have endless debates as to what exactly is Consciousness, I do love (DUB) Reggae and Consciousness and that made me start the Dubroom in 1997.

One Love, Give Thanks,

Dubroom Online, Edition October 25 2009


"WORK IN PROGRESS..." (WEBMASTER'S COLUMN)

WWW, October 25 2009 - The Dubroom Artist Pages are growing into a reasonable section with currently about 70 artists present. When new pages are added in the tempo that it currently is done, we should reach the 150 by the end of this year.

That's not all that needs to be done on the site, though.

As the MP3's are flooding in, everything has to be properly linked to in the MP3 portal. The download pages need links to other recommended tracks, and more.

Then there is the Video portal. As I'm building the Artist Pages, I come across just too many video's which have been removed. There will soon come a time wherein I have to do a huge cleaning in the Video Portal.

Nuff Works To Do!

FREEDOM OF SPEECH

Dubroom Online, Edition October 24 2009

Dubroom Online, Edition October 24 2009


"FREEDOM OF SPEECH" (WEBMASTER'S COLUMN)

WWW, October 24 2009 - The Internet is surely one of the last places, if not the only place, where Freedom of Speech is being seen as one of the highest goods, and rightfully so.

Without Freedom of Speech, no idea can be put forward, no wrong can be righted, no exchange of thoughts can take place, in other words: life is not possible.

Freedom of Speech, or Freedom of Expression if you will, is what keeps the Dubroom from becoming the mouthpiece of this-or-that religion, group, philosophy, et cetera.

How then can this be rhymed with the fact that certain people throughout the years in which the Dubroom has a Message Board have unfortunately been banned?

An interesting question, which arose on the Message Boards a while ago. So interesting, that a brand new episode of Dubroom In-Site is livicated to the topic.

"A DUB INNA THIS TIME" (WEBMASTER'S COLUMN)

WWW, October 23 2009 - Greetings! Today, Dubroom Online features a fresh Dub that I mixed just yesterday. I didn't make the riddim yesterday, though. That was a couple of months ago.

It's the first Dub I was able to mix after quite a while. Time-consuming events which equally caused a lot of stress and uncertainty simply prevented me from actively touching the musical atmosphere.

In a way, the Dub is actually quite personal, if you will, as I worked out a lot of emotions in the mixing, emotions I had to deal with within myself these last months as my spiritual journey came into a next phase.

I hope that you like the release as much as I enjoyed mixing it, it's made with a lot joy in an Ire atmosphere while giving thanks and praise to the Most High Jah!

"RADIO DUBROOM 2010 (?)" (WEBMASTER'S COLUMN)

WWW, October 22 2009 - There's a thing that runs through my mind for quite some time, and now that I've more time to work on Dubroom, it might just come to pass.

For a while now, I'm thinking about re-launching Radio Dubroom. A couple of years ago, I had to stop because of financial reasons but it could very well be, that pretty soon it will be possible again to broadcast.

Especially with the Podcast phenomenon coming up strong during these last days, I think that to have a Radio Dubroom podcast somewhere would just be a good idea. The only problem actually is, where to host the Podcast.

Whatever the case, Jah Willing I will find a place to put the podcasts online and start broadcasting again even though I doubt it will be before the end of this year.

WWW, October 20 2009 - Today's, Jah Willing, is a special day in my life. I hope to be able to spend this day in the Outernet to close off a period of great uncertainty which significantly hindered me, but for more than a reason.

Many people who know me personally, know exactly what I'm talking about, some of them even encourage me to share more but then I would be drawing people on the Dubroom stage if you will, people who are associated with me but not as Dubroom Webmaster.

Given the fact that there are -for whatever reason- people who just love to hate the Dubroom and me as it's main contributor and editor just causes me to be careful what I say about my private life.

However, I do try to share as much as I can without drawing people to the scene that are easy target for some people who would just love to see the Dubroom and me go down.

I do know, however, that today I really hope to be in the Outernet closing off an uncertain period. When everything goes the way I hope and pray it does, I will have much more time on my hands for the Dubroom Works...

Many people would think that Jah is in need for thanks, or even something worse than that. However, the truth is quite contrary. For it is us, His children, who are in need of giving thanks to Jah.

If you give thanks to Jah, you show that you apprecilove what He does for you. That means, you are able to put it is the right perspective, for everything Jah does for His children is for the good of these children.

It also means, that Jah will give us more reason to thank Him for. Our eyes will open to a greater extend and we really learn to apprecilove what otherwise, so many times, is just taken for granted by most of us, myself definitely included..
