"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,
Messian Dread (Dubroom Webmaster)
