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