"THE REGGAE GOT TALENT COMPETITION 2009" (WEBMASTER'S COLUMN)
WWW, October 16 2009 - It's actually the first in what hopefully turns out to be a real thing to watch out for every year. Not only will the winners themselves receive a whole lot of niceness, their entries will be available for free download as well.
This means obviously that the whole Online (DUB) Reggae Massive will be able to discover new, up and coming artists.
The jury is impressive: Earl 16, Afrikan Simba and Dougie Wardrop from Conscious Sounds Studio will come together to review the material that can be sent in.
In fact, you can say that we have a strong segment of the UK DUB massive looking for... you?
Yes: in today's edition of Dubroom Online, we pay a lot of attention to the "Reggae Got Talent Competition 2009". Especially of interest for the Online (DUB) Reggae Artists, but definitely not limited to the artists themselves.
One Love, Give Thanks,
Messian Dread (Dubroom Webmaster)

WWW, October 2009 - The classic Rasta Anthem "Satta Massa Gana" is just one of the feats of arms that the Abyssinians blessed the Conscious Massive with. The vocal harmony group was at the forefront of spiritual reggae during the 1970's, subsequently broke up and re-united in the 1990's under various memberships.
