"SKREAM IN MIDI" (WEBMASTER'S COLUMN)
WWW, October 9 2009 - A couple of months ago, I got an e-mail pointing me out that a popular artist called "Skream" has basically used one of the midifiles on the Dubroom and turned it into one of "his" releases.
I checked it out and fair enough: it was almost as if he had used a (rather cheap) Midi player and did a view things on top of it. That was indeed my work.
If Skream would have contacted me, or credited the Dubroom, it would have been really nice. Right now, I can only say that I am happy with the uncredited recognition and I am happy with the fact that Jah has inspired me to make that tune and some others too.
The Midifile is called ""Rock The Nation In Dub" and Skream's version has the title "Blue Eyez": You might like to check it out for yourself, too.
One Love, Give Thanks,
